I guess the accordeon-sounding keyboard makes this kinda folky, so...

^ That's a nice cheerful tune. The singer looks a bit like Leonard Cohen to me - apart from the fact that he's cheerful of course.

In general, Madredeus (from Portugal) are a little too smooth for my liking, but this track gets a welcome bit of edginess with the strings:-



Actually, I've hit a bit of a slack period in terms of exciting new (or old) world music lately, so I'd welcome some recs: something thin, raw and wild would be good!

A bit too overly classical for me, I need to listen to a typo music with a rough edges in other words not so polished and in a sense experimental!

There's something somehow more likeable about this bunch of guys, I can see the comparison with Leonard Cohen referred to the front singer!

Might not be what you're looking for, but I thought of you the moment I heard it. Maybe I'm right and it's in your ballpark, maybe not. For what it's worth, I think it's really damn cool

^ Thanks, MicShazam, that's a great track
Lots of interesting jazzy things going on, with a touch of I don't know what Asian country. I particularly like it at about 3 mins in when it slows down a little for the guitar solo.

Not specifically a country artist but here's Carolyn Wonderland covering "Honey Bee" by Billy Joe Shaver (one of the original "outlaw country" artists)...

Good afternoon
An other folk singer that I also like a lot is a Scottish multi-instrumentalist Julie Fowlis.
Check any of her videos on youtube. There are all favorite.
