I'm really liking this album from Courtney Barnett and also like Angus & Julia Stone. I've only "discovered" them thanks to YouTube's "recommended for you" videos. I'm glad I came across these 2 artists and really glad that I could buy them on vinyl. =D> I'm wondering what other artists from down under I'm missing out on? Please don't recommend Tame Impala... sorry, not my cup of tea but open to other suggestions :-k

Don't worry, ham-shack...Help is on the way! :D

In fact, there are all sorts of great bands and artists from Australia...Here's a taste of some of my favorite "down under" pop classics just for you...

And then some nice jazz-funk here...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woODpm-_XV4

And this has a bit of a CSN sound to it...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6g-I9QS83I

Of course, some newer bands and artists include these...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iay9gyLNdBw
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GN7syX6tz18
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9QNRvXH1HI
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eimgRedLkkU

Of course, there are plenty more like the ever-popular Men At Work and AC/DC, but those should give you a good, overall taste of a few of my favorites...

Boy, thinking about it, all of that is just right for "reminiscing"... :wink:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voQWlL-jj5Q

Maybe our Aussie friends can contribute a few more??? :-k

Sorry, I should've clarified that to be "new or recent indie/folk artists" :oops: :oops: #-o #-o #-o
I've heard of just about all the ones vinyl master listed, but the newer indie/folk bands don't get airplay here. About the only way to hear it is the Music Choice channels on cable, YouTube, or previewing an album on iTunes and seeing what other people bought.

Firekites The Bowery is lovely though I don't believe it's available on vinyl... :(

Here's a folkier band I found a while back, ham-shack...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JARp8lB25g

Here's another one...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8inJtTG_DuU

And a couple from their latest album...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Fi4T-yR8tM

I like that place in the last video...A bar where you can get a drink and listen to vinyl records? Sign me up! :D

And here's another beautifully-moving video from them...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5nrAHk_x8M

The Paper Kites are definitely worth investigating, and their most recent LP, "twelvefour", is also on vinyl!

Suggestions from my progeny:

Orb - apparently psychadelic

The Babe Rainbow

Anyone on flightless records.

Vinyl Master: Thanks for suggesting Paper Kites. =D> =D> Those first two were a bit mellow but still a good listen! I'll have to put them on my "to buy" list.

davidsss: The Babe Rainbow is....shall I say.... "GROOOOOOVY" 8) 8) 8) It's like they took a time machine back to the late 60's. I love it! :D After all, when you see a song titled "Secret Enchanted Broccoli Forest" you know it has to be good. \:D/

I'll have to borrow my daughter's EP.

She says they have friends wear hippy clothes and dance on stage with them.

I'm willing to give it a spin.

Also saw this from Courtney Barnett. Interesting to see what albums (yes, VINYL) that she and the band members like. :-o :-D 8)

I have one of their albums.

However, I will balk at the video below - anything by Australian Crawl will send you to sleep within minutes, avoid at all costs ;)

Mr VM just to let you know Split Enz are from New Zealand

One of the best Aussie bands for me are The Saints

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9M3b9lh-7s

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKVeHtHduoo

And a great throw off Saints band from the guitarist Ed Kuepper, The Laughing Clowns

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzIwfa67oSY

Then the traditional rock band

Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FG0txzWT-DM

And the damn right weird

TISM

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vgEk2PMV3o



So so many great bands and artists from the big rock at the Southern end of the planet

Of course, if you want to be technical, SF... :wink:

I mentioned them because I can't seem to mention Crowded House (who formed in Melbourne back in 1985, by the way) without mentioning Split Enz, and of course, both bands featured the Finn Brothers, Neil and Tim! They were big stars in both countries, too...Come to think of it, maybe I should have mentioned Cold Chisel, no? :-k

Of course I want to be technical. And pedantic while at it. :-k

I only thought about Split Enz being from New Zealand as on my first trip to sea I was lucky enough to see them live in Auckland (I also managed to play guitar for a local band on the same stage on the same night) and then Jo Jo Zep at the Bombay Rock in Melbourne a couple of weeks or so later. A promising start to a career at sea.

And a passing mention for Daevid Allen (and his many bands). A very varied and imaginative Australian talent
