    Time to update my music collection again.. can you recommend me some good music. I am looking for obscure stuff that doesn't get played on the airwaves, or at least not on popular radio stations. Any genre will do, they don't even have to sing in english.

    Here are a few bands I recommend that i have gotten into recently (some are a bit old but new to me):

    myslovitz - polish rock band, have english songs (thanks anja)
    ladytron- electronica
    goldfrapp - house, dance
    hooverphonic - trip hop with a big sound..
    brazilian girls - dance, world
    goldenhorse - nz pop rock ala cardigans
    elomenop - nz pop punk

    sorry i am not very good at defining sound genres - the above bands are sort of cross genre anyways.

    Best radio station out there, in my opinion...http://kexp.org, lots of great indie bands, and are usually the first to play obscure bands (and their demos).

    some you might like:
    silversun pickups*
    neko case
    cat power
    gelbison
    sera cahoone
    be good tanyas
    pj harvey
    ambulance ltd
    secret machines
    black rebel motorcycle club
    morning after girls* (they're Australian, you might have heard of them)
    the black angels

    and about a billion others, but that's off the top of my head....and you might have heard of a lot of these guys.

    *I'm completely into these bands at the moment...you might want to check them out first.

    P.S. Just watched Whale Rider again...amazing movie! Makes me want to hop on down there!

    Sigur Ros..... I will not rest until this entire forum is listening to Sigur Ros. Get the album Takk... it's amazing!

    oh and Okkervil River. = Unreal! Get the album Black Sheep Boy.
    And also... The Divine Comedy - regeneration.
    Grandaddy - the sophtware slump
    The Frames
    And the latest Augie March album - I havent' actually got it yet - but I reckon it'll be great.

    They're my lastest albums I'm listening to

    Dragonforce! Everything about them is cheesy, but they're still so good.
    Sufjan Stevens, Andrew Bird, Devendra Banhart, Rogue Wave, and Iron & Wine are some other artists that I think are really good.
