Recent & upcoming bands/musicians that deserve more attention!

Please!!!

If you've heard of some amazing band/ artist but keep wondering why they aren't popular enough, please put some samples of such musicians here for those of us still looking for substance in the sea of schlock that is beginning to define popular music today.

Any bands with new sounds, courage to experiment, that surpass traditional genre conventions, but WITHOUT 20 million youtube views per song and worldwide popularity would be great inclusions.

Think Death Cab for Cutie before they got popular - if they ever did, that is Come to think of it, I'll soon post their samples here too.

Genre no bar! Talent wunderbar!!

Non-English bands accepted.

I see you are right. He has been there around for a while. Funny I just heard of him only recently and was amazed by how few number of hits he had on youtube. I am going to edit the thread title a bit to accomodate 'recent' musician bit.

She signed with Jay-Z's label last December, guess we'll be hearing more electronic/experimental and hip hop collabs in the future.

Purity Ring sounds a lot like her too:

Huh? Really - she's popular? I didn't think so.

Re: Recent & upcoming bands/musicians that deserve more attention!

My entry, Female Robbery by the Neighbourhood, got some high points in the Song Game #1 even though I guess it wasn't well known in advance. Actually, also I knew if for just over a month. In February I read about pandora.com, a net radio where you can choose a channel based on your genre. I found that song on the indie rock station. Now I want to share another song of them:

That's obviously been a bigger success.

Grimes was one of the first artists I thought of when I saw the title of this thread!

Um, I'd also say Clock Opera.

Clock Opera- Man Made

George Barnett

George is probably most recognized for his amazing covers he posts on Youtube.
The most popular was this cover he did of the song Get Luck by Daft Punk!
