    Not to high-jack the other thread about boring classic rock so I decided to get a sample of undiscovered music most people might not run across. Post 'me here!

    Mutemath. Odd Soul is such a great album. I don't get why they aren't more popular.

    This cut from Ensemble, et al is on heavy rotation for the last few months. Every time is comes on I don't want it to end.



    Takako Minekawa & Dustin Wong last release is a current fav.



    New release from Death Cab. Still haven't listened to entire album.

    Chris Stapleton
    Dawes
    Sturgill Simpson

    Not undiscovered, per se, but they developed their talent well under the typical industry radar, and by the time they've gotten major attention, they have something solid and enjoyable to offer pretty consistently. In Stapleton's case, I'm eagerly awaiting his debut record.

    A few years ago I was in a record store and they were playing an album from these ladies. It hit me like a ton of bricks. I immediately asked the clerk who it was and bought the two albums of theirs (at the time, they now have another one.) on the spot. They're called First Aid Kit. They have great songs, and they sing them beautifully. I saw them live last year, and they were even better in person. Awesome stuff!

    I agree about Mutemath, love their work.

    I know this genre is not popular with everyone, but have you seen a trio with harmonium, acoustic/kickdrum, and cello/beatbox before?

    I've discovered an era (or area, it seems) of midwestern bands that were big influences of the "emo" movement of the late 90's! Love the clean to slight breakup guitar tones, but especially the off-beat time signatures, mathy rock in a way! Braid, Cap'n Jazz, American Football, The Promise Ring, Hey Mercedes, etc, etc...Not very radio friendly, or accessible to "non-musicians" if I may...

    Braid and Hey Mercedes were both very good bands.

    For me it was The Sword. I was super late to the party and only got into them last year but they're an awesome band. Their records are such riff fests, I love it.

    Dungen.

    My favorite band of the last 20 years. Incredible melodies, compositions, chord changes, improvisation.

    And I don't understand a word they're saying.

    Subbed. Some good stuff so far. :)

    Honestly, this is the latest "breathe of fresh air" song I've heard in a long time. (It was new to me when I heard it for the first time this week) :)

    It's probably well known to a lot of people given that it came out in 1973, but I've never heard it on the radio, it's never been in a movie or tv show, and the album didn't even chart when it was released. It's not on any "best of" cd. Sort of faded into obscurity except for the die hard fans. But my god is this good stuff.
