Nice to see some non-english speaking artists in there. I take it many of those are Italian? Can you recommend any personally?
The only Italian artist in the list are Tom Recchion and Bugo, who is a songwriter with punk and new-wave influences. His album is very amazing, but I recomend it only to Italian speaking, 'cause lyrics are very important.
Niste Nije Niste are an Austrian girl group, making experimental music.
an Italian album that I recommend to everyone is the last one by Nada (see "Mucchio Selvaggio" list). She's a songwriter quite similar to Patty Smith and PJ Harvey. Her album was producted by John Parish (PJ Harvey), and Howe Gelb (Giant Sand) composed some song together with Nada.
tom recchion is not italian....
but the 3/4hadbeeneliminated are italian, I can assure...
I can recommend an Italian ragga group, for the fans:
Sud Sound System. Very nice for those who like a little bit of variaton in the linguistic part of music.
