This is the thread for your relatively obscure musical obsessions. The Shit you think no one listens to, but you can't get enough of. even though lots of people have heard of it, because the artists wouldn't be publishing wide enough for you to hear otherwise. THIS AINT THE THREAD FOR YOUR BEST FRIEND'S GARAGE BAND




Me? I prefer Ratatat over everything

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

but of course, nobody but me has heard any of this before now. Thats why it's on youtube


PROTIP: I am asking for artists/songs that are not on the Radio, but ones that you think totally should be

    Yndi Halda is pretty rad. They have a lot of Explosions in the Sky and MONO in their sound, but they're consistently more interesting than either of them.

    i have introduced so many people to this band in the past 3 or 4 years

    i was at the concert where they announced their new name for the first time!

    (it used to just be 'mother' but they got sued or something so it's 'mother mother' now)

    My current obsession is with dreampop. And by association, shoegaze. Lots of Asobi Seksu, MBV, M83, Mew, Raveonettes, Sunny Day in Glasgow, Silversun Pickups, etc.

    Fuck yeah Mother Mother! My girlfriend's brother showed them to me a while back, and I've been trying to spread the love ever since. I'm still not sure what makes me like them so much; they're not at all like most music I'm into. They're just so fun!

    None of this is particularly obscure so far.


    I will posit this, however:

    I have the best girlfriend by virtue of the fact that she gifted me for Christmas Big Black's Songs About Fucking and Headache.

    Try and beat that. I dare you.

    I've been getting into this really obscure female singer, she does a lot of great melodic stuff

    it's too bad more people haven't heard of her, I think she's got real potential

    These guys are amazing live. You've seen them live, right? Because they're incredible. I always thought they were a little cheesy, didn't really get too into them until I saw them pull out The Mob Goes Wild live. Dude lives and breathes that stuff.

    I'm pretty sure this thread isn't some kind of contest. Just a place to share some bands that don't get much exposure.

    Also, Faricazy, I already know World's End Girlfriend, but I just listened to that tune by Kashiwa Daisuke and it was swell! I'll have to hear the whole thing sometime.

    I have not, but me and my uncle really want to, he's who got me into them with 'Careful With That Mic...'

    I think they're nearby soon, too!

    I've seen 'em twice. The first time they did Careful With That Mic, but that was like two or three years ago. This last summer they did not do it. Just get up close and scream it at him between songs though, he seems like the sort of guy who'd go for it.

    PS I am sorry that my joke in my previous post was not well received. Please do appreciate how wicked awesome Big Black was, though. For your own sake.

    Neither the whole of truth nor the whole of good is revealed to any single observer, although each observer gains a partial superiority of insight from the peculiar position in which he stands. It is enough to ask of each of us that he should be faithful to his own opportunities and make the most of his own blessings, without presuming to regulate the rest of the vast field.
