Hello there

I'm hoping one or two of the australians who read this forum might be so kind as to recommend me an album or two that has come out over there but has yet to surface here in the uk.

My brother lives in melbourne and is making his annual trip home next week. this is how ive managed to get pre-uk release copies of midnight juggernaught, gotye, empire of the sun and, most importantly, since i left you so if there are any australian releases that you think are worth having i'd be really grateful for the heads up.

So far my shopping basket has only the modular comp 'leave them all behind 3' in it but id love to hear of any more ideas from any genre.

Cheers :)

S.A.L. is right, Wagons are a great little alt-country band, and better live.

As for anything truely interesting and creative, though, the 'bigtime' Aussie industry hasn't given us anything for years, in my opinion. It's the same old - Powderfinger, Silverchair, Presets, Wolfmother .... not very inspiring.


Oh, another little band that might be worth tasting is Mum Smokes, out of Melbourne...
