Alternative Music from the Netherlands

 

This week I will feature some alternative bands from the Netherlands.  This country has so many music traditions.  Popular music (Nederpop) is heavily influenced by the music styles that emerged in the 1950’s.  Some of you may not know that the famous band Golden Earring were from the Netherlands.  There are a lot of bands that stick to singing in their native Dutch language but many bands sing in English in the hope of becoming internationally recognized.
