But Wild Beasts are rad. Tame Impala would comfortably be my favourite Australian band. I dig them immensely. Otherwise Nick Cave is my favourite Australian songwriter (Liddiard probably second) and I like a handful of Australian bands. I have always had a soft spot for Eddy Current Suppression Ring. I love their DIY sound. I think The Jezebels are pretty cool as well; write cool lyrics and come up with genuinely interesting arrangements. The Middle East came up with one impressive Ep then made a mediocre first album and disbanded. This Is Your Captain Speaking, Sleepmakeswaves and Laura are all really cool post-rock acts. I've seen all quite a few times and they sound so good in a live setting. Bands like Children Collide and British India bore me.
