I was thinking the other day that this would be an interesting topic to make a thread about. I don't know if anyone's made a thread about it before though?

Anyway, there are a lot of good bands and musicians out there that people haven't heard of that make good music, who should probably get more exposure than they do. But you know, they're not mainstream or whatever, so sometimes you can miss out on great music.


Well the musicians or bands you think the world should know more of, they can be musicians that are quite well known, who just aren't mainstream. Or musicians you think the world should be listening and talking more about, that make a difference. Or just musicians you like and you think they're the best thing since sliced bread and everyone should own their albums



The bands I think people should get to know more of?

Nightwish (Finland) - Symphonice Metal/Power Metal
Faithless (England) - House/Trance/Trip Hop
Evermore (New Zealand) - Alternative Rock/Indie Rock
Sarah McLachlan (Canada) - Piano Pop
The Carpenters (USA) - Adult Contemporary
Small Mercies (Australia) - Pop Rock/Alternative Rock
Plumb (USA) - Contemporary Christian Music/Alternative Rock
Dido (England) - Pop/Pop Rock/Alternative
Guy Sebastian (Australia) - Pop/Soul/Ballad/Rock
Thirsty Merc (Australia) - Pop Rock/Rock
Missy Higgins (Australia) - Pop/Indie/Folk/Acoustic
A-ha (Norway) - Synthpop/New Wave

Sorry my list is a bit big


So who do YOU think the world should hear and get to know more of?

Well... music is very subjective isn't it

It's obvious that there is some types of music that I don't care for at all, but hopefully we can keep that to ourselves and like you say just post what we like and might think others (in general) could enjoy


- Alphabeat (Denmark), they are hitting bigtime with this in the UK. My best friends play in this band, they've made it in Europe, so next step is world domination


- Sigur Rós (Iceland), you know this number from the tv-show "Planet Earth".

- Familjen (Sweden), awesome video for this song.


- Petter & the pix (Sweden), interesting mellow jazzy style

- Spleen United (Denmark), video from the 2nd album. Got a nice upbeat "big city" electronic feel to them. Their first album was a bit darker in attitude.

- Arctic Monkeys (UK), britain when its best. One of the first bands to have a huge fan crowd on the internet before they got signed.

This last one I kinda found by chance while hanging out in a record store in Camden, London. Twisted dark music project from the 70s. I wouldn't wanna listen to this when on shrooms x)
- Nurse With Wound (America)

Hey, yeah I've heard of the Arctic Monkeys before, I think they're pretty cool

The others I haven't heard before, but I'll definitely check them out especially the band your friends are in! One of my best friends' boyfriend has a band, they're not really well known outside of Adelaide, but they're pretty good

Myspace - The Steady Ons

My Uncle's in a band too, I can't remember what they're called though



But I like hearing what other people like to listen to, because more often than not, I find new music that I've never heard before and that I start to like


Like the band Korpiklaani, I hadn't heard of them before until just recently when a friend mentioned them to me. Now they're probably one of my favourite bands.

I saw Sigur Rós in concert in Chicago. They do a really good show.

I think the french band "Justice" should get more attention. And because im a wuss, "Imogen Heap" or her early "Frou Frou" stuff.

MUSE MUSE MUSE!!!

Ok i know they're internationally renowned rock megastars but EVERYONE SHOULD LOVE THEM!! Loll..

Besides that "Flight of the Conchords" - just hilarious. And sooooo talented..

Um.. people should listen to more of "World" music - whether it's just instrumental music from another country or songs in different languages sung by pop stars from a foreign country loll.. i love "getting cultured" like that xD

I'll also recommend The Shins, Port O'Brien, Bon Iver, Angus and Julia Stone, Santogold, The Tin Tins, The Sleepy Jackson, Ben Lee, Pnau, Operator Please, Jason Mraz, MGMT, Eskimo Joe, Sneaky Sound System, Jamie Kennedy and Stu Stone, The Kooks, Powderfinger, The Presets, Jack Johnson, Old Man River, The Dead Kennedys, The Vines, The Hives, Thirsty Merc, John Butler Trio, N.E.R.D, Josh Pyke, Gotye, Maximo Park, Daft Punk and even though they're popular already The Arctic Monkeys, AC/DC, Amy Winehouse, The Libertines, The Kings of Leon, the Red hot Chili Peppers, The Rolling Stones, Silverchair, Supergrass, Wolfmother and The Beastie Boys xD
(LOLL you asked, i offered.. :p)
A few of those are Aussie acts but many are probably internationally recognised :p

I also think music by bands such as the Dead Kennedys, the Clash, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, the Beastie Boys, Jimi Hendrix, The Living End and MUSE, to name a few, is important when it comes to speaking out about world or society issues. xD

Have fun! ;D

I've heard the name Imogen Heap before, but never heard her music. Although I've heard a Frou Frou song, mainly because it was on the Shrek 2 soundtrack :p

I totally agree! People should listen to more World music, it's really nice. I like getting cultured like that too lol.

And artists from other countries are good too. One of my favourites is Wilber Pan, he's a Taiwanese singer (although he was born in the US), I like listening to his music, even though I don't know the lyrics. Also some of those J-rock and J-pop bands are interesting too and the visual kei bands.


Wilber Pan - Bu De Bu Ai (I LOVE this song and I LOVE Wilber Pan!)




Younha - Houki Boshi (My sister introduced me to this song and now I love it!)

John 5 - Solo Guitarist

The Derek Trucks Band - great music

Explosions in the Sky - Genius

Mogwai - Hunted by a Freak - If you do not listen to this you will regret it...

Hey those songs are cool too!

LOLL i know i love it! :p Some of my favs would have to be Elisa (Italy), Dynastie Crisis (France), La Caution (France), Piero Umiliani (Italy), Antonio Vivaldi (Italy), Ornella Vanoni (Italy), Mika Singh (India)..

Also recently I LOVE the music from "The Darjeeling Limited" soundtrack - with music from the Bollywood films of Satyagit Ray and Merchant-Ivory - not to mention all the kick-ass Kinks songs... loll :clwdnc:

Qualcosa che non c'e - Elisa

Faust 72 - Dynastie Crisis

The a la menthe - La Caution
The instrumental version is 10 times more awesome and it appears in the film "ocean's Twelve", but Vincent Cassel is so gorgeous in this clip anyway.. haha
