Great artist/music from your country

The place to share the music from your country that you think everyone should listen to. I'm not a big fan of pop music, I prefer classical, but I do like these songs from Dutch artists:

Anouk - you can sacrifice me (also listen to: nobodies wife and three days in a row)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rM1ubBjCbEE

Krezip - I would stay (all their songs are great)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dh5vPA05CvY&feature=related

The Nits - in the dutch mountains (golden oldie)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2YxNx46yTM

Ohh, this should be fun.

I guess I'll try to throw in bands that might be more universally liked:

-------------------------------
HIM - Awesome band with damn talented vocalist. They're often described as a "love metal" band... Take a peek:

Right here in my Arms
Killing Loneliness

-------------------------------
Apocalyptica - Four classically trained cello players playing metal music... Yes... With cellos. They also have some awesome covers and beautiful classical sounding songs.
Nothing Else Matters (best metallica cover ever?)
I don't Care. Feat. Adam Gontier

-------------------------------
Sonata Arctica - Ok, most people won't like the band's music but I dare you not to like this song:
Tallulah


I don't want to create a way too huge post, so I guess that's it for now.
Oh, but for the people in to heavier music: Check out Children of Bodom (our metal music flag ship) or Nightwish (similar to Within Temptation).

Northern Ireland:-
We have
*Ash
*Snow Patrol
And my favourite
*duke special.

Duke special is AMAZZING~
He has dreads and makes music using the oddest assortment of objects like spoons and a titchen whisk.
He also has accordians and clarinets in his music so its even better for me =]

Great thread! I love to explore new music Happy

Some cool music from Germany (I wonder if the youtube links will work):
Peter Fox - Das Haus am See (=the house at the lake)
Gorgeous drummer choreography in the video!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMqIuAJ92tM

Ich & Ich - Du erinnerst mich an Liebe (= you remind me of love)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKBlAsIlgDQ

And one special person - not German, but Irish... I simply have to introduce you to his music. He tours around Europe each year, and we became friends over the years:
Kieran Halpin - Angel of Paradise (live)

First of all, becSTAR, Enter Shikari are exceptionally brilliant.
Other than that, here's some bands and some fun facts;
Steer Clear- Some of them went to my school. My guitar teacher taught the drummer how to play guitar.
The Undertones- My mum's friend forced her to go to the mass the drummer went to, because she fancied him.
Stiff Little Fingers- I don't really have a fun fact for this. But did you know there is no word for "yesterday" in the Eskimo language.

Here's some of my favorite Australian Artists..

This is Archie Roach, an indigenous musician and this song was written about the forced removal of aboriginal children from their parents.

This is Gurrumul Yunupingu, another aboriginal artist. He sings in his native tongue and is blind. He's taking Europe by storm at the moment!!!! This song is called Bapa, a song about his father...

I hope you enjoy these songs. I could have put mainstream australian music up for you all but as an Indigenous Australian I wanted to share a little of my culture and people with you all Happy
