Okay, I want everyone to name a singer or band that is great, but has never been heard of or is not well known.

I am kind of looking for some new music. I lucked up and heard an interview with the Decembersists on the radio and loved the music they were playing. I am buying their cd this week off of half.com (I am cheap) and would like to know what obscure yet good music everyone here at MT listens to.

Oh, I can think of a band you have never heard of.

The Boom- who are famous in Japan for their song Shima no Uta.

You might not know what they are singing about, and you might have problems finding it, but I think you will enjoy it if you locate a CD.

Edit- the following is a cover of their song by another band on Japanese television. If you like what you see, be assured that in my opinion the original is much better for a western way of listening to music. You won't go wrong looking them up in the music store IMO.

Boiled In Lead is a great band. Very eclectic, in a good way!

Hoyt Axton. He wrote Jeremiah was a bullfrog and had several songs that got airtime in the 70s. On a side note, his mom wrote Heartbreak Hotel.

Take Six: Accapella Jazz/Gospel vocal fusion in 6-part harmony. Have won numerous international awards, but because the genre is so 'niche', few have heard of them.

Joy Williams: My fav. female solo vocalist

Varga. Their two albums, Prototype and Oxygen are perhaps two of my most treasured. I believe they're Canadian. Industrial hard rock. Good stuff.
