Umm lately I've been listening to this Australian rock band Something for Kate. I like them a lot. The singer's voice takes a bit of getting used to, but once you do it's quite nice. They're impossible to find in the States though. At least as far as I've seen. A couple of their albums are available on CDNOW but I haven't got them yet. Just been listening to the mp3s. Some of my fave songs are: Back to You(Piano Version), Captain, Electricity, Happy Endings, White, and my absolute favorite song by them is Ordinary World. If you're into that kind of rock music type stuff I'd definitely recommend them. They're not like super innovative or experimental or anything. They're just a straight up rock band with pretty decent lyrics and fun playing. It's addictive I tells yah.
Oh and another GREAT Australian act is Alex Lloyd. He's fantastic. Both his albums, Black the Sun and Watching Angels Mend are amazing. It's hard to pick favorite songs, but I guess I'd have to go with: Black the Sun, Amazing, Everybody's Laughing, Burn, and Bus Ride as good starters. Anyway, enjoy if you do and don't hate me if you don't.
