i'm on a compilation thing with loads of indie pop bands from around the world and i'm amazed by how much awesome stuff is being made in places like indonesia!
there's a band from thailand called sausage who i quite like too.
and i really like
m. charivari who's from belgium (less exotic i know)
this wasn't really supposed to be a jag or anything, but you can look at stuff about the compilation on this blog:
