When I lived in New Zealand several years back I discovered that New Zealand has several excellent bands. If I recall correctly there is a law in New Zealand that states that a certain percentage of music played on the radio and television must be made by New Zealand artists, giving them quite some airplay.
One of the Kiwi bands I like a lot is the now disbanded Goodshirt. Sadly I left their debut album "Good" in the Netherlands when I moved to Mexico. Last month I asked on a message board frequented by several Kiwi's if anyone could upload a copy of "Good". And today a friend told me he had done so, and finally I could listen to Goodshirt again.
My favorite songs on "Good" by Goodshirt are:
and the best song on "Good" is in my opinion "Green".
Below follows a short list of other Kiwi artists I like a lot. For each artist I give a selection of my favorite songs.
