After taking home the big award last year.
The Australian Independent Record Labels Association has today announced all of the nominees for the 2015 Carlton Dry Independent Music Awards which features a number of the country's biggest acts, including Sydney singer Courtney Barnett who has picked up a slew of nominations.
Barnett, who last year won out the event's biggest award in the Best Independent Artist category, was again nominated this year for the gong, as well as in the Best Independent Album category for her March-released debut album, Sometimes I Sit & Think & Sometimes I Just Sit.
The popular songwriter also impressively picked up two nominations for Best Independent Single Or EP for her tracks, Pedestrian At Best and Depreston.
Meanwhile, recently disbanded Melbourne act #1 Dads also received nominations for Best Independent Artist, Best Independent Single or EP and the hugely popular Breakthrough Independent Artist Of The Year category alongside hip hop artist Briggs, Client Liaison, Japanese Wallpaper and Totally Mild.
