Powderfinger's 'Dream Days at the Hotel Existence' has become the fastest selling album so far this year, debuting atop the ARIA chart with sales of 40,847.

The better news is that 4 of the 5 fastest selling albums this year have been Australian releases and even more amazing, all four Australian releases have been Indie releases.

Following in second place was Michael Buble 'Call Me Irresponsible' which sold 37,005 units.

Next comes Silverchair's 'Young Modern' with 35,627 units.

Missy Higgins 'On A Clear Night' is in 4th place with 35,627 units and in 5th place, John Butler Trio debuted with sales of around 25,000.

Powderfinger record for Paul Piticco's Brisbane based label Dew Process. Both Silverchair and Missy Higgins record for John Watson's Eleven Records and John Butler releases his albums through his own label Jarrah Records.

Dew Process is distributed by Universal Music, Eleven Records is through EMI and Jarrah goes through MGM.
