Australian Music Appreciation Thread!

So...

I feel Oz is producing some great talent at the moment. Some of it is shared with the world, some just seems to stay here.

Aussies, what are your fav local acts?

Everyone else, what do you know about our music scene?

I think we have some great talent out here:

Powderfinger
silverchair
Alex Loyd (spelling?)
Something for Kate
Ben Lee
Natalie Imbruglia

Also, the band George. I saw them live recently and they were really great. A beautiful album.

Ok, I know about Powderfinger and of course Silverchair (didn't know they were from Oz! ) haha

Last summer at the Folk Fest here in town, there was an Australian Band called "Fruit". They were billed as 'the biggest act to come out of Australia in a long time' or something to that effect. Have you guys heard of them? They were fantastic!! A real variety of musical styles. There were three or four women all of whom could sing and two guys. Tons of different instruments throughout the gig. Very eclectic. I'd love to see them again.

--> Jonny... you are forgetting about Kylie!!

Midnight Oil?
Olivia Newton John (although I'm not a fan)
Vanessa Amarosi (after the Olympics, I heard "Absolutely Everybody" on the radio everywhere I went)

you know what's incredible, that Australia has a huge country music industry. Excellent talent. keith urban was huge there, and came here and is now one of the best singer/songwriters in Nashville, and plays guitar like Stevie Ray Vaughn. there's another young Australian woman now also in Nashville, forget the name, besides Jamie. Just bought Darren's (Hayes) new cd. What's cool is the world is wide open thanks to the internet. I listen to Australian radio stations, country music in Australia, bought keith urban's first cd's right from Australia, listen to bbc and irish radio stations online, and order cds through Ireland and England. thanks for those recommendations.

Ben Lee is the only aussie artist I still currently listen to. I got to see him last year play in this little club outside Philly. Eagerly awaiting a new album this year.

When anyone mentions Australian music I instantly think of Savage Garden, because I was really obsessed with them for a while. They are still one of my favourite bands. They rock! It sucks that they split up

Natalie Imbruglia is cool as well.

I have heard of powderfinger, silverchair and midnight oil, but have never heard anything by any of them to the best of my knowledge. I am very musically deprived
I really must download more music, because there are loads of bands I really should have listened to which I haven't

So basically, I don't know much Australian music, but what I do know, I like.(excluding kylie)

Is Snow Patrol Australian, or did I make that up?

Snow Patrol is from Northern Ireland. Their last album was incredible. What did you think of it?

Really? Where in particular? That makes me like them even more!

I love their last album, especially the first two songs.

That's odd you should post that, because I was just wondering about them the other day. I've never heard anything by them but I'm curious. Have they released anything yet? What style of music are they?
