New Zealand

Kiwi music is The Awesome.

I would like to make a brief post right now in praise of the awesome music that has come from New Zealand and generally been tragically overlooked by the rest of the world. From The Chills to Shihad, The Feelers to Dave Dobbyn, and many other great bands and artists to the two and only Finn Brothers, New Zealand has produced some sensational material. Let me put this rather simply: Neil and Tim Finn are two of the greatest musicians to ever grace the planet and everything they touch turns to gold, from Split Enz to Crowded House and general brilliance together and solo. Yes, right now I am gushing all over an awesome playlist that has been keeping me thoroughly entertained this entire evening. I've been salivating over everything from a Chills bootleg to live Shihad to Neil Finn's amazing voice. Don't you just love that feeling when you know you're listening to fantastic music?

Listen to Kiwi music!
