A friend of mine from Australia tipped me off to Flight of the Conchords. They are a Kiwi version of Tenacious D. The Flight of the Conchords are a duo, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, who perform witty and humorous songs on acoustic guitar.
They made a splash on the comedy festival circuit several years ago and last year they landed an HBO series. The series is about them trying to find fame, fortune, and success in New York City.
I admit, at first glance, these guys are bizarre and weird and strange. But they definitely grow on you.
Here are a couple of free downloads for Flight of the Conchords... Download/stream link.
