    hi kids,

    Still looking to upgrade my mp3 collection, I am looking for new artists to upgrade collection. Can you help?

    guidelines

    1. Must be new artists (no album released prior to 5 years ago - sorry jonmikal & terri, there are actually are musicians other than the beatles and finn brothers :shock: :greenpbl: )

    2. Must be relatively obscure, ie non top 40, or not big selling artists.

    3. Can be any genre: jazz, trip hop, electronica, techno, downbeat, rap, reggae, ska, rock, country, dance etc.. i have a very electic range of music (as those who have swapped files with me know - eh.. that sounded kinda kinky :lol: )

    at the moment i prefer downbeat because its the easiest music to work to (ie i won't get distracted by lyrics or wailing guitar solos).

    ah, heres a cool site for some relatively new unknown musicians

    interested to see what you kids are listening to these days.
    :D

    :lol: Bite me, sweetie!

    All right, if you wanna play hardball: www.theartsandsciences.com Let's see: local band, signed with a local label (owned by Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls), latest album released March 2005. They've toured along the East coast, but are still obscure, trust me. :razz: The last tour dates were in June, they're taking a break at the moment. You can download plenty of stuff from the site and lemme know what you think.

    So, you know, nyahhh. :greenpbl:

    Here's 3 for ya:

    Probably one of my favorite bands right now is Keane. Check out their album Hopes and Fears. It's good stuff. But then again, they are a pretty big selling artist, even though I don't think they really sound like it. If you want to go obscure and don't mind French music, a (French) friend recently turned me on to this new artist named Camille. Really awesome singer. Check out the song Ta Douleur. I still don't know what most of the lyrics mean, but it's still some pretty good music imo. Also, you might like the band Greenscene. They're not very upbeat but I wouldn't call them downbeat either. And I'm pretty sure they're an obscure band. I hadn't heard of them until someone sent me a song by them. Then I went out and bought their album. It's pretty good.

    Try Jack Johnson, very good for the summer but I would imagine also good the rest of the year.
