I hope this hasn't been done before, or recently. Anyone here who's not from like America or Canada or Britan? Like I'm from New Zealand. Post the names of some local bands and artists from your country, and everyone can check them out - a great way to find new music!

Well, here's some from New Zealand:

Split Enz
Crowded House
Bic Runga (I don't like her but it doesn't change the fact that she's good at what she does)
Shihad / Pacifier (same thing, some stupid American company made them change their name because it wasn't 'politaically correct')
Brooke Fraser

Please take the time to check some of them out, there are a lot of different styles in there! Some of it's not really my style, but hey, anything to promote some good kiwi music :D Now someone else give me a list from their country....

I've listened to and liked The Chills, The Gordons, and Snapper, all of whom are supposedly from New Zealand and pretty good. I might check out some of those you listed.

im from india. Indian music is pretty popular all around but its mostly the ****ty dance songs and fusion hip hop sort of stuff. The rock scene heres still evolving but there are some good bands. My fave is one called "Zero". Theyve got some awesome melodies and bluesy guitar work.
Im sure there are more indians out here.. add on that guys.

If u like kiwi rock u cant go past the classics like Shihad, Blindspott, Split Enz etc but some more recent bands r really worth checking out, Cobra Kahn, The Bleeders and Save Toms Dog all rock, especially live!
