I saw GT open for Converge. Their music seemed like it would get a bit old on CD (the electronic beats were a lot more memorable than the grindcore parts) but they put on a great live show.

EDIT: And while I'm in this thread, I have to plug Have A Nice Life. Their album is sold out, but you can download it for $5, and it is absolutely worth it. Album of the year, for sure. They're hard to describe, but they're sort of depressing-as-hell shoegaze, with a lot of other stuff thrown in there.

Listen to them on Last.fm, especially the song Bloodhail.

Certainly almost noone outside Australia would know them, and probably few people here, but:

Sleep Parade.

They were fantastic when they opened for Porcupine Tree.

Salt and Samovar. They're hard for me to describe, so just go listen to We Will Break or Swallowed A Pill or Soon To Be The Dust.

Also: Uncle Tupelo. Not remotely a current band (they broke up around 1993), but I don't think that many people have heard of them. If there was any band I could time-travel to see, Uncle Tupelo is it. I did get to see Jeff Tweedy play Screen Door at one of his solo shows a couple years ago though.

But they really must be experienced live.

OK, Cell-Scape is pretty great music-wise, but I see that the vocals haven't moved on! Fucking hell, what sort of speed/helium hybrid is (s)he smoking?!

Ha. I guess I'm just used to her vocals, they seem fine to me. She has a somewhat deep speaking voice, surprisingly.

I'm not sure if these were mentioned
Explosions in the Sky (they are getting bigger)
Fuck Yeah! (sorry for the language)
Vampire Weekend (Before they were on SNL)
LSD and the Search for God (real band, I'm telling you)
Mogwai (at least no one in my area knows them, except Steven)
The Mountain Goats
my friend Catherine is an Alien
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! (maybe you've heard of them)
!!! (that is a band name)
Sequester (Canadian guy who is making all his own metal. He plays ALL the instruments and sings)
Sieges Even (they may be popular in Germany, but not in Canada)
Chicken Feet
Crash 80's (ex local punk band)
Living Martyr (My schools hard metal band)
The Nhilest Spasm Band
Beef (awesome dutch reggae/ska band)
Eluveitie (Maybe yes if you like folk metal) this band is amazing. Myspace[url]
http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu ... D=55881276[/url]
I recommend Bloodstained Ground as a first listen. If your into metal.


I'm not sure about the "under 10 000 listeners at last fm" thing for these guys. I just find the music.
However I do know that my friend Catherine is an Alien has just over 1 000 only. and Fuck Yeah has 10.

I'm not sure if anyone else has heard of these bands, but their decent.

holy shit

I was told to not pay attention to their later material, and I was wrong. SO WRONG. Probably tied for best current band in Japan with Syphilitic Vaginas, imo.

M. Craft
Mando Diao
Vampire Weekend (yes, i know, fairly well known, but less well known than some others)

I could write a hilariously long list in answer to this thread, but I suspect that the fewer bands I list, the greater the likelihood will be of someone actually investigating them, right? After all, fewer name = greater quality.

Bearing that in mind, I give you these three names, all unutterably brilliant, and all far less known than they deserve to be:

The Microphones,

The Incredible String Band,

&

Frog Eyes



(P.S. If anyone out there calls themself a fan of rock 'n roll but is yet to discover Old Time Relijun... well... DO IT GODDAMN.)

I just saw Frog Eyes last night in a small audience of about 30 people (a combination of the size of the venue and the fact that they didn't start until almost midnight). I'm not incredibly familiar with their studio work aside from Tears of the Valedictorian, but they're terrific live. Mercer's energy is boundless.

I've always wanted to know how well known The Hellacopters are outside of Sweden. They just released their last album and they rock. Pretty much.

Bands that are really unknown though:

Dollhouse: http://www.myspace.com/rockandsoul - Their from my town, oddly enough.
The Morning Benders: http://www.myspace.com/themorningbenders

Yer, I quite like them, however I happened on them totally by accident...

thats a really good thing IMHO

It gets them a little more coverage, and broadens the minds of those 'I-play-guitar-hero-therefore-i-know-about-music' people. seriously, the number of people i see whos entire musical collection is entirely based off GH

Knowing a band that's lesser known is moot is you don't enjoy the music. If you feel like what you listen ow to doesn't really do it for you, then by all means go searching. But underground =/= good.

That being said, if you want some catchy indie pop stuff, check out these albums (I'm going off of you liking Vampire Weekend - these don't sound at all like VW, but if you like one you might like the other.)

Beulah - When Your Heartstrings Break
of Montreal - Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer? & Icons, I Abstract Thee
The Mae Shi - HLLLYH

and then some other things

Alcest - Souvenirs d'un Autre Monde
Rapider Than Horsepower - Rapider Than the World

Most (or all) of this can easily be found using the Google Blog search function. Search for an album title until you find a music blog that has a download link from megaupload or mediafire or whatever.

OH no i wasnt suggesting that just because they were unknown, they were good, but rather some of the underground stuff may have a different style to that which I would come across if I only listened to mainstream/well known groups.

I am a sucker for indie pop, but I am also just getting into post rock, in particular Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and I have to say, fucking briliant!
I also just got some stuff by Alcest and am liking it as well.

Other than that, thanks for your suggestions, I will definitely check them out! :D

I would say so. I am constantly converting people to DFA on a daily basis. It's a fine shame that they split so abruptly.
For me, I would have to recommend Project, a jazz band featuring that man who played 'Inspector Gadget' on the flute. Remember him? In terms of tracks, I recommend Fables of Faubus, an exemplary tune that reminds me of shady jazz clubs and drastic romance.

On an entirely different spectrum lie Lightning Bolt, a two-piece drum and bass (not drum-and-bass) noise band that any musician should surely appreciate on some level. They also tend to rock quite thoroughly. Matt Bellamy of Muse fame is a firm fanatic. Tracks to recommend include Ride The Sky, Dracula Mountain and Assassins. Their rhythms and hooks are so different and adrenaline-fueled, I doubt it is like anything you have heard up until this date. It's like chaos bottled.

I would also recommend the grunge band Kill Kenada, a three-piece that are truly worth a good mosh. Unfortunately, I believe they are currently only available to be bought on vinyl. Their very best track is In Your Throat, in my opinion.

Happy listening!

Yea. Particularly fun live, of course. One of the drummer's side projects was what got me interested in current underground music. (I was a snotty-nosed-little-punk in the early 80s, then went through a LONG Stooges/Sabbath/MC5/Cooper/Dolls/etc period, and finally woke up and started listening to new music again in the late 90s, thanks to Chippendale.)

He also made a guest appearance on the last Bjork album, which you'd never ever guess from listening to it. Very disappointing collaberation, unfortunately. (Bjork sitting in on a LB song would have been much better.)

Are you serious about the Björk collaboration? That's incredible! Two of my favourite renegades in music together (even if it was a load of shit). By her last album, do you mean Volta? And you are absolutely right - Björk singing over LB would surely be the end of civilization as we know it.

Yeah, she recruited two underground drummers for Volta - Brian Chippendale and Chris Corsano. She wound up using Chippendale for one song, and Corsano for the rest of the album, and for live performances. (Corsano is VERY good, if you're not familiar with him. He's on the jazzy end of the noise-rock spectrum. Has played in lots and lots of bands. He did a drums-and-noise collaberation with Jessica Rylan called "Vampire Can't" that I really like.)

My favorite Bjork album is Gling Glo.

Thank you for the tip, I shall investigate into Corsano. I respect your choice of Gling-Gló - a superb LP. I only have it on vinyl, I was unable to find it anywhere on CD. I love how pure and untainted it is - her singing is quite immature and earthy. I love it. However, my favourite of hers would have to be Post, if only for Hyper-Ballad.

Awesome bands no one has heard of (in terms of sound) - Mount Eerie's "Black Wooden Ceiling Opening"

What the hell made this guy start a punk band, and why is it so fucking good? Seriously, it's a really unique sounding album.

Ugress is awesome! Crazy, upbeat electronic music with very nice samples. There are a lot of free tracks on the website; my favorites are Kosmonaut, Makina Fifth, Zombie Eagles and Out. :)

It's kind of like Slagsmålsklubben, which is also really fun.

I don't know how many people here have heard of them, but The Tiger Lillies are pretty awesome. They're a three-piece band from London from 1989 that plays a sort of dark gypsy cabaret. Their lyrics are generally very... potentially offensive, as they are about topics such as beastiality, prostitution, rape, and other such things. Actually, I can't say that I have listened to too many of their songs, but what I have listened too was fairly interesting, if only because it's so unusual.[/url]
