My favourite Japanese bands are primarily Polysics and Melt Banana.

I also enjoy Capsule, some Perfume tracks and Special Others.

 

I had a huge Scandinavian post-rock phase that I went through. My favourite bands from that wide genre include Sigur Ros, Amiina, Efterklang and Múm. You then also have Bjork of course, and Mew.

 

Oh La La was a cool French band that someone used for a Cube Eurovision game and I loved them and got their CD. Air are a well known French band who I've enjoyed for a long time. Stereo Total are great and are French/German.

 

I also like The Dø who are French/Finnish, Royksopp, Karin Dreijer, The Knife, Robyn, Karin Park and Frida Sundemo.

 

 

 

 


(Not my favourite Melt Banana songs but I love that two Japanese musicians got a big bunch of rock and metal heads to this state.

Icelandic Beastie Boys inspired hip hop...

 

Oh and another Japanese one. Just some lovely Japanese pop cover, but they do great stuff themselves too (Cookie Day is a favourite).

I love this thread. It is reminding me of tons of songs and bands I forgot about.

I legitimately discovered half a dozen bands I now really like because of EWB Eurovision. Oh La La and The Do are just two of them.

I went through a bit of a phase where I sounded out the people who were labelled as "Country X's Bob Dylan". Most were pretty dire and schmaltzy, though I do rather like Fabrizio De André, who I guess is the Ligurian Bob Dylan. Crêuza de mä is a good one, though it's entirely sung in the Genoese dialect, so I don't have a clue what he's going on about. Maybe that helps.

I have a bit of a soft spot for dire French music from the 60s. Michel Polnareff is possibly the prize exhibit.

When I went to Tanzania and Kenya a few years back I really got into some of the local hippity-hop music, which was pretty cool. I also love the more old-fashioned lingala music like Orchestra Super Mazembe. It's very evocative. Lovely ringing guitar tone.
