International Music Request
July 18, 2010 1:30 PM Subscribe
This question has certainly been asked before but I am looking for great rock music from different countries, the place matters not (except US and Canada). What I really want though is more musical exposure of bands who I can then listen to and research outward from them. In other words, I am not looking for exhaustive lists of bands, rather, geographic diversity. The more different countries, the better.

This is essentially an update on this question
One of my hobbies is finding new bands from far off places. I love hearing what is happening elsewhere and getting that broader perspective on music. Occasionally I share music on a blog I keep for my friends and I want to open some new avenues of inquiry. For examples of bands that I enjoy that I have found:
Cate Le Bon
Betting on the Mouse
Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster
Secret Chiefs 3
I am not sure there is a genre that is evident with the exception of "Rock and Roll" VERY broadly defined.
The question goal is: at least one band from as many countries as possible.
