« on: 22 Dec 2004, 12:22 »

not even like guilty pleasures because you do not feel guilty about them



Soul Coughing
Cake (except not the new one)
Bee Gees
Meat Puppets
Bran Van 3000 (except also not the latest/last one)


no one I know seems to dig these bands. Especially Soul Coughing, who are unjustly hated.

Anorexia Nervosa.  By taking one look at them, you'll understand why they don't get much respect.  However, I love their stuff.  

As for jazz, I respect it a lot.  That stuff is pretty hard to play.

I really liked My Chemical Romance's "I brought you my bullets..." album. They're your pretty standard pop-punk/screamo band...but for some reason that first album stood out to me.

Blind Melon.  I love Blind Melon.  Their first album is seriously soooo good.  It is tragic they get the one-hit wonder notoriety, because really, the rest of that debut album is great.

The Divorce
The Kills
I got both of the above at my favorite local record store's going out of buisness sale, because they were really cheap and I liked the covers. I ended up loving both, but none of my friends will listen to them.

Poe
Scout You Devil

Robbie Williams
sometimes, I like a sappy love song. Sometimes, I like songs about hollywood and drugs.

Yellowcard & Simple Plan
You know, both groups can write some damn catchy songs.

I'll stop here, because my list could go on forever.

I fucking LOVE The Divorce. They've got a new one coming out in a few months. Oh man.

Edit: I'm going to nominate Rjd2 and Windir.

Rjd2 is a really awesome DJ who layers the soul on with a military-grade ladel.
www.rjd2site.com

Windir is a really fun viking metal band from Norway. They're pretty removed from the Opeth school of metal but they are really enjoyable. Unfortunately, their founder and lead vocalist died of exposure while hiking to his family's cabin up in the mountains, so they've broken up.  If you can find any of their stuff though, I highly recommend it.

Soul Coughing is one of my all time favorite bands.  I cannot say enough good things about them.  People who don't like them generally only heard "Circles".

RJD2 is actually pretty widely appreciated.  Rivalled only by DJ Shadow as far as instrumental hip-hop/breaks go.

As for me:  The Flashbulb, Joseph Nothing, and Bit_meddler.  All obscure idm.

I'd have to say...

Jarcrew - obscure Welsh band, kinda dancey-punky-weird
The Bronx - Excellent 50mph punk
Minus - Hardcore mob rejuvenated as a stomping hard rock/metal crew
Modey Lemon - fuzzed up moog rock for the acid-inclined
Salem - Excellent singer fronts post-hardcore band, probably
Silvertide - Classic revivalist 70s style rock

Not big on indie points, but bands I enjoy nonetheless

Allow me to destroy you now. Don't even step to the San Diego Hardcore Art Rock scene. The Locust and The Plot To Destroy The Eiffel Tower, though not paletteable at all times, own you, your soul, and your ancestors souls.

That being said, Im not too big into The Locust either.

props to those that dig the BV3 (their second album ruled as well, even if it didnt rule as hard as the first) and jackoffjill (check out jessika's new band, scarling. Beautifully dark and etheral stuff, not hard at all like joj's stuff. They've got an ep floating around soulseek).

ok, crap I listen to that no one else seems to:

-Human Waste Project/theStart - I would be Aimee Echo's whore any day of the week. I absolutely adore her voice. It is incredible.

-boilermaker
-The Sundays

Ah, they're adorable really.  Don't get me wrong, there are -core bands that I prefer to The Locust, but for a supposed "gimmick" band I can get a fair amount of variety out of a twenty-one minute album.

i love rachel's!

i have a hard time getting anyone into matt pond pa... i just don't understand why everyone who hears them doesn't go out and buy all their albums!  don't make no damn sense.  

i'm a jazz musician myself, so i'm surrounded by others of my kind.. so i don't have a problem finding people who dig jazz.  it's actually the other way around for me- most of the people i know, except for my roommate, don't listen to indie music.

unfortunately they're rather hard to find... the only place i can think of is http://www.live365.com/stations/mrfrazer" target="_blank"> this radio station. i think you have to be a member to listen, but it's free. or if you want i could send you a couple songs through email. (might be easier).

Well, there's a lot of bands mentioned in this thread already that I recognized and have liked/loved or one reason or another:

The Meat Puppets ( named one of my RP characters "Cayenne" thinking of that song )
Blur ( before they became Elastica II. Ok, so after that too. Gotta love Blur. =P )
The Cranberries ( My friend was a Cranberries freak, so I got to get into them quite a bit )
Bowie ( is God. listen to the Labyrinth soundtrack for proof )
Blind Melon (yeah, their debut album was frickin' awesome. Don't know how many times I've sat down and played "No Rain" on acoustic. Funny how they thought their second album was going to do so well since they weren't stoned when they recorded it. It was a piece of crap. =P )


Here's some on my list:

Bikini Kill
The Breeders
Belly/Tanya Donelly
Juliana Hatfield
Veruca Salt
DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince ( just. can't. hate )
Harry Connick Jr
StarPimp ( anyone ever heard of them? I think they're originally from San Fran )
Bis
Sonic Youth ( guess don't really need to be mentioned, but there's so many Sonic Youth haters out there )
King Missle
Guitar Vader ( prolly my current most favorite band, but they got such a bad rep from the songs they released for Jet Set Radio and JSRF... listen to the album "From Dusk" and you'll understand why I adore them )

Prolly tons more I'm forgetting... just the ones that came to mind right now. Man, I love this forum.  I feel sort of a comraderie thing goin' on. XD

yeah, there wasn't much on that list i disliked.  actually none and i hadn't heard of one (starpimp) and i loved the JSR soundtrack.  sonic youth is alright but i'm not a hater.  

i still don't know how someone mixed up king missile and the butthole surfers though.

I knew this one girl way back that I had a crush on who was really into music and was starting off a band with her little sister and a friend. She'd make mix-tapes of all these unknown chick bands that were just so raw and personal. I caught wind of a lot of bands that way. Some of them don't even have albums, but I so wish that they did.

Oh, and I've heard of The Raincoats actually, but haven't heard a lot of their songs. Coincidentally, the reason why I've heard of 'em is also because of Kurt. =P

awesome! and yea it's because of him that their albums are even available. their records would have been long forgotten had he not cited them as a favourite band, which led to the release of all their albums on cd. the same thing happened with the vaselines. thank god for his good taste in music/god-like influence.

Both are saddle creek bands, and yet none of my cool, Bright Eyes and Cursive loving friends have heard them.

I listen to a lot of music my friends haven't heard of. The only way I could be cooler would be to listen to bands that don't even exist!
