A rush and a push and the land is yours.



A lot of artists operate in a culture that is not part of the anglo-american global hegemony on popculture (I LOVE American & British music- make no mistake). But there is a lot more out there - a lot of innovation comes from other corners of the world. Let this be a place for cultural ambassodeurs-

    That's a pity, I do not really have a favorite when it comes to regional cultural or - linguistic aspects, let alone one with great regional significance. There, in general I'd rather cover my ears :( Well, maybe I've got to dig a bit away from the obvious popular. I'll breed on it for a while :)

    OK: My go at danish bands. better late than never: Povl Dissing, Nikolaj Nørlund, Allan Olsen, CV Jørgensen, Sebastian, Niels Skousen, Peter Sommer for the more traditional values. Sort Sol, Kliché, Moral for post-punk. Under Byen, Efterklang, Future 3 for newer directions. Pluto for indie pop

I would also recommend Hey (former rock now alternative band), Mass Kotki (electro punk - not very popular but I like it), Grabaż i Strachy Na Lachy (indie rock - but only the first two albums - "Strachy na lachy" oraz "Piła tango" - are worth attention), Myslovitz (indie)... so much for now, if you like it that I have more ;)

    ...Joy Division (Manchester) are one of The seminal British bands, methinks... essential listening along with Belle and Sebastian (Scottish), Gorki's Zygotic Mynci (Welsh), Kate Bush (Kent, England), Pink Floyd (Cambridge, and London), My Bloody Valentine(Irish) and Thom Yorke (from my home city of Oxford).

    the newest brit-music of interest has to be...Natasha Khan (Bat For Lashes), and I also highly reccommend Beth Orton, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster... The Delays are nice, as are AMBROSE TOMKINS!!! I challenge you not to love this last band...

    It's difficult to choose just one...John Parish and Polly Jean, collaboration / quintessential British music from dear ol' blighty... England

    if anyone hears a great band from a "foreign" country - though friends and allies on last.fm - foreign to your own country of course - lets hear about it!

    Have changed my mind, my first post was written up without really thinking. It's a toss-up between Spinvis and Agua de Annique. Can't choose between the two, yet.

    The Gathering is (or was) my favourite, when Anneke van Giersbergen still sang with them.
