    Seems like there’s quite a few members from Down Under on here. I’m a Yank, but I have an appreciation for some of the under-played artists coming out of that part of the world. After seeing one of my favorites, Tame Impala, posted in music (as well as some others I don’t know as well), I decided this group deserves its own thread.

    This is the region that brought us well-known classic bands like AC/DC, INXS and Midnight Oil, but also lesser-known acts like the Hoodoo Gurus. Some of the ones I’ve heard from the latest wave include the aforementioned Tame Impala, Pond, Jagwar Ma, Broods, Luca Brasi, Cloud Control and Courtney Barnett.

    I'm sure there's lots more, so Down-Under residents and music fans, please keep ‘em coming. I hope this thread gets postings for some newer artists, but I’ll start with this entry from the 90’s because….this is a sex site after all.

    I'm actually from Scandinavia and Tame Impala is played a lot here, very popular among the youngsters. Their music is like being inside a shower of love and music notes. Gives me goosebumps it does :)
    I can always appreciate good music, it's healthy to keep up with the times when it comes to music and not get stuck in the whole "music nowadays isn't as good as when I was young". As an 80's - 90's person I really liked this one:

    I've heard Chet Faker's "Gold" before--very smooth stuff.
    Another one I didn't know was from that region. This is turning into an eye-opening thread, for me anyway.
