Better start writing these down Thanks everyone!

Lance, if you're looking for something different on the electronica front check out Lackluster, otherwise known as Esa Rouho. He's Finnish. I think "Wrapping" is one of his best albums....it's very ambient, chilled out music.

Anyway, off to check some of those suggestions.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll look into it. Always love some new chill music. Especially stuff that my friends don't have or maybe never even heard of.

Don't know if any of these shows might be available to you but Front 242 is going on tour for the first time in a while and I am definitely catching the SF tour. Wish they had some more dates closer to me but alas, no luck. Just thought I would pass this on.

Apr. 02 : Moscow (Russia)_Mechanika Club
May 14 : Montréal (Canada)_Elektra festival
July 09 : Almeria (Spain)_Live Dance Festival
July 16 : Dour (Belgium)_Dour Festival
July 21 : Gava (Spain)_Indie Ferencia Festival
Oct. 01 : Eindhoven (Holland)_Effenaar
Oct. 29 : Fraga (Spain)_Monegro 2 Festival

Those are all the shows not in the US. Any other bands you think I might be interested in? I'm always looking for local stuff, too. I can recommend a couple from Virginia that really rocked. Off the mainstream charts and all. If anybody might be looking for a good show over there let me know. Still haven't gotten out to much around here. I was supposed to go to a thing tonight but just wasn't feeling it. Cheers!:)

On the dancey side have you tried any british break beat? like the Plump dj's, Stanton warriors? There's some funky stuff out there!

happy searching

p.s...I'm really enjoyin some folk~ey rock at the moment which totally isn't ME!! it's great to branch out and listen to stuff you wouldn't usually, get out of your box

Yeah I like breakbeat a lot, I have Sasha's breakbeat compilation, Airdrawn Daggers. Very good!

Hi Ev,

to get an idea how NZ bands sound get something from

Salmonella Dub (One drop east) or Fat Freddy´s Drop.
Loving it!

I also start liking Spanish music and can only recommend a singer called BEBE. Not exacly Trip Hop/ Electro, but special.

I just bought a 2 disc Disney song collection. Disney songs work as THE best pick-me-up, and are great for sing-along moments.
