Good thread.

I dunno if any of these are well-known, but I've just never met anyone who has heard of them:

The Whitlams, piano-rock band, kicks the Fray a million times over, aussie band. My personal favorites are 'Blowing Up the Pokies' and 'No Aphrodisiac'.


whitlams are fecking awesome, got 2 of their albums, brings back great old memories

Give "Explosions in the sky" a try, instrumental band from Texas and they're really good.

I suppose Tom Waits is fairly well known, but I'm gonna go ahead and recommend him anway.

I saw Explosions a few weeks ago in Manchester, brilliant gig.

For more of the post-rock I'd definately recommend Mono. (particularly the album "You Are There" - absolutely brilliant)

Yeah, I know him, it's really good (H) I said that was the best in Europe not only for music things, but considering political investment.
These rappers are coming from blocks in Marseille and they aren't doing gangsta rap as most of rappers from Paris suburbs (suburbs don't mean rich districts as in USA, here rich are in city centers and working class from all ethnies are in the suburbs, maybe in rest of Europe too). Well, near Paris we saw some riots after police violence, not in Marseille. Rap messages are full of peace here, that why I said that was the best in Europe... But yes, I have to say one of the best :D Just look at this!

I just stumbled into this band and I'm listening to their newest album, and it sounds pretty awesome. Anyone know anything about "Galactic"? They're some funk/jazz fusion/hip-hop band from New Orleans. When I finish this album I'll give my impressions, but every so often an album will GRAB me instantly, and this one is pretty much doing that.

Von Hertzen Brothers. It's a Finnish brother trio, and they play psychedelic progressive rock. Very talented musicians each of them. It has something same in it than Muse, and maybe Rush too.


Let Thy Will Be Done

That one is my favorite of their songs, god I love that riff.

Really ******* dope album. Galactic - From the Corner to the Block

Seriously awesome. Cross-genre mastery. Gets a little stale at the end because there's some similarity between the songs, but still definitely worth a listen.

I think you all should go check out Shifty Talevski on Youtube if you haven't heard him yet. He's a wonderful very talented singer. Just search for his name on youtube and it will bring up about 64 different videos he has done. Enjoy!!:mike:
 

Jaboldinho

Fan Favourite
Alien Ant Farm
Mostly known by doing a cover on the Michael Carlos*son -hit Smooth Criminal, but they got some great original songs too.
Barenaked Ladies
Indieish rock. Haven't heard many of their songs, but so far I've liked what I've heard. (Y)
Disturbed
They're a big thing here, but I'm not sure whether or not their that well-known elsewhere. A good metal band with a unique sound.
Shinedown
A Disturbish Metal band, they even were the warm-up act for the band at their concert in Helsinki. Check out their songs Devour and Second Chance.
Dream Theater
Joe Petrucci. (H)
Hard-Fi
Brittish Indie.
Millencolin
Their older material is awesome. Skate punk -band.
Paramore
Their popular now, but if you haven't, check out their older songs. Before they made it big time. Some good attitude they've got.
 
Yup, Millencolin's a great band. They've pretty much burned out now, though. Their last album wasn't too good.
Disturbed are big everywhere I think.

Red Card - Life
Life Ban
Speedmarket Avenue - Way Better Now



I dunno anything about these guys, but the song is really good, it's become one of my favorites, can't quite put my finger on why. If anyone knows anything about them, share.

White Lies

Have so far only heard two of their songs, To Lose My Life and Fairwell To The Fairground, but they both sound really promising. Some good, original Indie.
