An all-time favorite group of mine, but is most likely already known by most in Europe (sorry if so, but I don't know for sure) is Nickel Creek.
A perfect song, if one exists on earth, is Sweet Afton and another perfect song is When You Come Back Down... they play much more upbeat music as well. :)

Sorry Fletch, I didn't see that you mentioned any songs below the Youtubescreen until now :(

Flow Gently Sweet Afton is stunningly beautiful, thank you very much for that. When you come back down is a little too generic for me too go 'ooooh' over, but nice nonetheless. House Of Tom Bombadil rocks, great! Are you of Scottish heritage? I seem to recall you live in the Eastern part of Europe :?

Daan put a second song online called White Castle, hope you guys'll take the time to listen to it (and, for lack of a better word, ponder the lyrics :D ).

On a closing note, and completely disregarding the name of this topic, the following song was stuck in my head all day yesterday. The part I love most starts at 0:20, the Tour Of Duty sound :lol:

Some say there are no stupid questions. I'm in the habit of proving those people wrong.

Sweet Afton is written in an alternate tuning (guitar part), which may be part of it's strong appeal to the ear. Makes it fun to play as well.

White Castle started out very lovely, and was beautifully done. The very last bit was odd... but I try not to judge any song the first time I hear it. (I did not like Led Zeppelin the first time I heard them. :lol: )

Today on the radio in 2hours I heard Stevie Wonder and Jack Johnson as well as some Istrian (Croatian region) folk singing, Croatian rock, Croatian pop, and a very very old American country song... so I guess they have quite a variety here. :lol:

Jah Love
It's Saturday night again, and I have another round for you guys. My passion for Reggae is huge, so I want to Introduce you to some non-jamaican artists.
All of them are highly recommended to see them live on stage, if you can get the chance.
Ladies and gents, here is the most powerful downbeat brigade from New Zealand: Fat Freddies Drop

This is so massive, it should be left uncommented.
But since I still have to fulflil this threads topic, I am going to announce three german groups, that are internationally respected in their sector:
Recently emerging from Berlin: Tiger Hifi
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRRNB5DL0Do
It is a shame that these guys alredy have broken up: Seeed
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uv4eTg6i ... re=channel
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYg9omPY ... re=channel
And finally the undefeated Champion of german Concious Reggae: Gentleman
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcCmmqru ... re=channel
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFrTk3v4 ... re=related

hope you enjoy, have a nice weekend and stay upright

Weeee!!! That's nice stuff Shura!!

Haven't heard of Fat Freddies before, thanks a million for that. It's perfect hammock-music ;)
Didn't care too much for Tiger Hifi. Don't know why, but even after a few listens it still seems kind of flat.
Seeed's already on my iPod, my mom's from Austria and I have a few friends there who keep me posted on the right kind of music ;)
Gentleman, great stuff! White man singing Krio(-ish) never fails :lol:

Thought of a Dutch hiphoptune today: these guys really messed with the Dutch scene with this song, was unlike anything released before (or since). BTW, extra fun starts with the African-style at 3:40 :rofl:

And a Dutch/Belgian collaboration: Slaap lekker ding. A very sweet and mellow lovesong in contemporary form, subtlety is probably lost in non-translation ;)

Fletch, Daan's White Castle is an acquired taste indeed. I haven't acquired it yet, but (as you said) it might come.

Aw, that HipHop tune is not available for me... too bad. But Diggy and Eva are cool, they know SketchUp as well or what? (pssst, I do that too - right now in our bed my wife sees a face-me component with my photo, while I sit next door chatting with you, hehe)

Well admitted, Tiger Hifi does not have the same impact like the other two geman groups. But if you like FFD you might be interested in another production from Berlin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e118aeP0 ... re=related
Rythm&Sound is one of my favorites when digging deeper into the Dub jungle.
Too deep? I am getting afraid to scare you, next time I will be posting music from a totally different style for sure. Promise.
(Ah so what, by now everyone thinks that I am a bloody weed smoker anyway - and I can't even blame those who do, because there truly is a lot of that in the Reggae scene)



---- from Wikipedia ----
Many of the vernacular forms of English spoken in the Caribbean are also referred to as patois (occasionally spelled in this context patwah). It is noted especially in reference to Jamaican Patois from 1934. Jamaican Patois language comprises words of the native languages of the many races within the Caribbean including Latin, Spanish, Hindi, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Amerindian, and English along with several African dialects. Some islands have creole dialects influenced by their linguistic diversity; French, Spanish, Latin, Hindi, Arabic, Hebrew, German, Dutch, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, and others. Patois are also spoken in the Atlantic coast of Costa Rica and other Caribbean islands such as Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana in South America.

A classic Oz song that has certainly crossed borders.....and it takes a certain courage to sing it knowing your going to sound pretty flat most of the time :)
