Don't know how obscure these guys are but they do come from a different country (barely) and I probably listened to their latest CD about 20 times or more on a road trip I just got back from. Metric:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVnQ5wsIaaA

That's the first song on the CD, but you really gotta listen to them all, in order like the CD to fully appreciate it.

Maybe they're not so obscure after their Black Sheep song was on the Scott Pilgrim soundtrack and their CD was for sale at Target.



Metric is not obscure at all, it was super famous in my school

This.


Them and Dirty Loops. Swedish, insanely good trio. They only seem to play covers of meh pop tunes, but their covers are amazing.

Here's the best version of Rolling in the Deep you'll hear http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsqh9jHkHlM


My bassist friend showed me these guys a couple months back. Nothing short of amazing.

Fair enough.

And they're even on the local "alternative" station occasionally with Youth Without Youth. But I haven't heard the other single, Speed the Collapse, on the radio yet. And the other 9 songs on the CD don't get any play, but they're well worth loading on your computer, mp3 player, or buying the CD so you can hear it all in the proper context.

I was surprised to hear YW/OY on the radio; it was instantly recognizable as Metric even though their only other song I had any real familiarity with was Black Sheep and it had a different singer. I figured it could be Metric since they're touring, and sure enough, it was. The best testimony I can give the Synthetica CD is that even Lou Reed couldn't f**k it up by doing backup vocals on one of the songs. And I hated LuLu and everything else I've heard Reed do, other than Take a Walk on the Wild Side.

The CD has some pretty cool packaging, too, and it's the first CD I've bought that came with a visual de-coding device (of sorts).

You mean that Aussie band from the 1980s or something else; something from this century?

Matt Corby-Australian Folk/Blues/Indie/ Soul singer-songwriter. Damn good musician, his cover of "lover you should've come over" by Jeff Buckely is seriously damn good. This is not the JB song I just mentioned though .

How do I know the best bands I've never heard of if I haven't even heard of them?

I am not nearly hipster enough.


I didn't even want to respond to this, but I'm still not sure if you're joking. If you were , if not the idea is to share a band you know of that most other people wouldn't have heard of. Should have been obvious by post 70 though

Matt Corby again song is "Brother". The "finer details" of the song are pretty sad methinks .

We've basically been posting bands we like that we don't think anyone else has heard of.

For example, if you like thrash, click the first link in my sig for a band that I feel needs more attention.

Yeah, they are spectacular. if you like it, check out their entire album "Barndomens Stigar". some of the sickest most professional sounding prog I've ever heard.

Was absolutely unknown to me until I plowed through swedish music via Rateyourmusic.com

Yeah, as far as I know that's the only term to describe it. Django Reinhardt is considered the father of Gypsy Jazz back in the 1930's when he played in France in the clubs at night.

Here's another really great Bossa. The Rosenberg Trio-For Sephora.

It's funny you say that because if you listen to some of the fookers with 4 fingers that play today you would be awestruck. Seriously, check out Gonzalo Bergara (I posted a song from him) Stochelo Rosenberg ( Also posted one), Joscho Stephan, Tchvolo Schmidt, Dorado Schmidt, Bireli Lagrene, Adrien Moingard, and this guy Sebastien Giniaux.

Norig & Sebastien Giniaux. I don't know the song title but I'm going to have to find it or if one of you could help out if you know French haha.

No problem! I met them because the keyboardist's wife was the chorus teacher at my school, and he played piano for the chorus and show choir. He introduced me to his band, I got to be friends with them, and I've been a fan ever since!

was thinking about psychobilly/punkabilly bands i used to listen to in high school a lot.

http://www.purevolume.com/theastoundingroygorbisons/ - i imagine they've long since broken up

http://www.purevolume.com/fourbarrelghost - more cowpunk than anything. but an awesome band. don't know if they still play either.

http://www.purevolume.com/emergingfromvandoors - this was another band i listened to in high school. they've been broken up a long time. "look, they're breakdance fighting" was the only emo-esque song i really liked at that point in my life.
