I am looking for Australian or New Zealand bands like Mountain Goats, Neutral Milk Hotel, etc.? This may not exist.
I am also interested in any bands with a similar sound from other languages or regions, such as Asia, Central/South American or Continental Europe.
I would describe the sound I am after as "indie lo-fi folk rock"
I would also be interested in other non-american/non-UK suggestions. Maybe French or Latin American?
