Except for The Frowning Clouds, some of the best Australian groups I’ve heard lately are The Shimmys and The Wylde Oscars. The Shimmys are a girl garage group who have released two great albums, the last came out in 2009. Also from Melbourne are Jay Wiseman of The Hoods’ new band (yes, he relocated from the US) Thee Wylde Oscars. They released their first album Right, Yeah on Off the Hip last year. Curiously, the recent European release has a different title (Do the Wylde) and slightly different songs on it.
