    Turn me on to some obscure music!

    We all have our favorite bands/artists that nobody else(like friends) appreciate or understand.
    Introduce me to something new, weird or funky that you hold dear. I'm into all types of music except for "new" country and pop-crap. I used to love hip-hop/rap too, but most everything that comes out now is God-awful!

    Here's a few of mine:
    Pinback
    San Diego's finest. I love every song by these guys. Super mellow and chill. I describe it as musical Valium.


    Band of Horses
    Great stuff. Pretty mellow too. A majority of their stuff is in the "baby makin' music" vein, but is good listening if you're driving.


    Atmosphere
    If you like hip-hop and have a brain, this guy is the shiznit


    Built to Spill
    guitar driven alternative rock. If you like Dinosaur Jr, you'll love these guys


    Thanks, I can't wait to hear what weird stuff you listen too....

    I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Gogol Bordello. They are coming out with a new album, but this song is from their last one. It is hard to describe Gogol Bordello, they are kind of a mix of immigrant gypsy cabaret punk.



    Another artist I has been liking is Chuck Regan. If you are interested in what a punk rocker sounds like when he converts to alt/folk/country he is it. Geraldine is one of my favorites. He also sings under the name Rumbleseat.



    John Grant has a great voice.



    If you have gotten a little weary of Mumford and Sons, Matthew and the Atlas has a similar yet fresher folksy sound.



    I love Shearwater's Animal Life



    Pennywise's version of Stand by Me is pretty different and fun. Note: at 1:30 it changes beat and lyrics are a bit explicit.



    Andrew Bird stuff. Privateers is the video, but Scythian Empires and a host of other songs are awesome too.



    This cover by Tracy Thorn and Jens Lekman is awesome, but the wife won't like it.



    Alkaline Trio's acoustic version of Over and Out is cool.



    Last one, Saint Judes Infirmary's Goodbye Jack Vetrianno is one of my favorite songs of all time.

    I like female vocalist so I have to mention Tift Merritt, Kim Richey, and Patty Griffin. They all have a bit alt. rock country to them.

    Umphrey McGee - a free form rock band.

    +1 the Talking Heads. Their Brick box set in surround sound is amazing!!

    +! Oingo Boingo Could anyone get away with a song titled "I like Little Girls" anymore? Their live album is pretty good.
