The NEW/"Lesser Known" Music Thread

So we've threads dedicated to past decades, but on a lot of websites I see folk stuck in a bit of a loop of liking what they know.

As I'm sure many of the musos & giggers on here will tell you, one of the best things about the music scene is seeing the unknown & new stuff come through. Between Covid, venues shutting left right & center since the 2008 recession, and lazy as fuck promoters who think posting a post on Facebook is "promotion" and worth 15%, up and coming talent have had a wobbly time in recent decades. Especially since the focus was hugely on Simon Cowell type setups which promised instant fame, but bummed the gullible fools for every penny they could earn him.

So here's a thread for those who like to experience the unknown. Whether it be brand new music, or it be old music buried away from the mainstream eye, I'd thrive on seeing folk post stuff that is/was under the radar.....

To start.......

And then I'll chuck in Nottingham's own Church of The Cosmic Skull...........

The Skints. Not new new but more recent and currently active. They play mostly reggae/dub with a lot of rapped style vocals and are a bloody good live band.

Benjamin Brooker... Saw him 5 or 6 years ago, voice is the audio form of drinking proper smoky, peaty scotch.



Slow Readers Club... Just saw these a couple of weeks ago at Tramlines, from Manchester and you can definitely hear the influence of another iconic Manchester band in there.

Detroit Social Club... Sadly been on a long hiatus and not made any music in ages (bar a brief return in 2018), I saw them while I was working at In the City festival in Manchester in 2008 (I think) and about 20 times since!



Dimitri From Paris... Incredible remix of a classic!

We've got the s/t Benjamin Brooker album for record club, really good.

I’m out of the loop these days with newer lesser known music but years ago when I was out playing regularly there was a lot of good stuff around.

My missus had her own radio show for unsigned bands, bands from everywhere would send her recordings in and she’d play them and read a bit of their bio and where they had gigs coming up.

It was a fun era, MySpace was good for checking new music out, but when everything seemed to migrate to Facebook it killed it a bit for me.

One brilliant local resource for Nottinghamshire music has always been Nusic:

They’ve a podcast showcasing local talent as well, which is well worth a listen. I often used to check out bands I’d heard on there if they were playing locally, when I lived in Notts.

Like the sound of that Benjamin Brooker, good stuff.

Got to be honest, I really struggle to get into anything that sounds overproduced. I see someone playing a drum kit and it sounds electronic and programmed… really off putting for me personally.

There are exceptions of course… like Pendulum for example. Dude has one drum beat but it’s a fucking banging one!
 
Yes.

Another band called “Hawaiian Gremlins”, from Mexico City. Two contrasting styles of rock but I’m very flexible when it comes to tones and styles of music.

Yeah, just had a listen to the HG's and I definitely much prefer Spector myself. But keep 'em coming Tits, whether I take to it or not I always enjoy broadening my music collection. :cheers:

During Lockdown last year my then 12 yo daughter introduced me to this guy, who I think is bloody hilarious, and I can't quite work out if he is acting being a bit strange, or is actually a bit strange. Anyway, I like him
