May I recommend Gladys Knight (& the Pips). Music is not my strongest subject, but that is one that came to mind. Ow and Grace Jones.

Edit: I having looked them both up to check if spelling is correct and they are who I thought they are, I saw they both are connected to a James Bond movie. What are the odds :) not strong on Bond either as you can tell

Ow and for sample songs:

Gladys Knight (1952-present): That's what friends are for, a License to kill

Grace Jones (1973-present): Pull up to the bumper, Slave to the rhythm

It may be the songs chosen and the fact that it is on Jetpunk. "Edmund Fitzgerald" is probably known to geography/history buffs as well as music people. You have to be a pretty hardcore Deadhead to remember "Sugar Magnolia" from way back in 1970 something.

I'm not a Deadhead. But I remember "Sugar Magnolia". Most likely because I'm old.

The rest of the band is American. They formed in the US and then sought her out after the fact as their singer.

Garbage are one part British and 3 parts American, so country should show both.
