Jac's Favourite Countries

Musically of course. Also yes, if a country "m/'s hard" then they're in my good books, so don't bother pointing that out. Enjoy.
1Bjork
Vespertine


10th Iceland: Masters of surreal, breezy, generally twinkly tunes.
2Sigur Ros
Kveikur
3Olafur Arnalds
Eulogy For Evolution


They're also not too bad at the whole neo-classical thing either.
4Johann Johannsson
Fordlandia
5Sororicide
The Entity


They even m/m/, I heard Bjork digs these guys too
6Kashiwa Daisuke
Program Music I


9th Japan: Lots and lots and lots of good neo-classical/electronic infused stuff comes from here, as well tonnes of eccentric pop and the whole Onkyo scene etc.

Boris At Last - Feedbacker


"But do they m/"? Yes they do.
9Shiina Ringo

8th Germany: Home of awesome bands such as Sodom, Kreator and Defeated Sanity

Agent Orange
15Kreator
Pleasure to Kill

17Be'lakor
Stone's Reach
18diSEMBOWELMENT
Transcendence into the Peripheral
19Psycroptic
The Scepter of the Ancients
20Impetuous Ritual

Hvis lyset tar oss


Birthplace of the second wave of black metal
