What are some bands you love that you wish more people knew about?

I listen to a lot of music, and I love showing people bands that I've discovered that are not as well known as I think they deserve to be. I thought it would be fun if the snapzu community could do the same: give exposure to great bands that people may not otherwise hear about.

Why - "By Torpedo or Crohn's" [Indie Rock/Rap]

Larry and His Flask - "Manifest Destiny" [Folk Punk]

River City Extension - "Something's Gotta Give" [Indie Folk]

The Aristocrats - "Dance of the Aristocrats" [Instrumental Jazz Rock/Fusion]

Moon Hooch - "Number 10" [Jazz/Experimental]

    The Franklin Electric [Folk/Indie] - Guys from my area, discovered them a couple of weeks ago and I'm hooked. Played live for the Montreal Jazz Fest on the main stage, was their biggest gig ever, place was packed!
    Karkwa [Alternative/Indie Rock] - French canadian band, unfortunately on (permanent?) hiatus. Loved them!
    Louis-Jean Cormier [Indie] - French canadian singer. Recognize that voice? You listened to Karkwa's link then - he's their singer. His solo project is probably what triggered the band's hiatus, but they never really said why.

    That second part probably won't be everyone's cup of tea...

    Obliterate [Deathcore] - Quebec guys, pretty much the generic deathcore with heavy breakdowns, but what they do, they do it right. I played with this guys on a local show before, they're picking up some speed in the North American scene now. Great and humble guys! The frontman is fucking mental.
    Bloodshed by Reality - "Obliterated Centuries" [Blackened deathcore] - Shameless self promotion for my old band, that unfortunately split up... Damn had fun with these guys. Playing the keys, produced the album and screaming my ass out (two screamers).

    Yeah I got weird tastes in music.

    They're definitely growing in popularity now, but if you live lyric-rich music, you'll probably love the Mountain Goats. John Darnielle, the front man, puts so much depth and emotion into every song it's unbelievable. Some of the more popular songs are This Year, No Children, and my favorite of these, Going to Georgia. I hope you like them!

      I love the Mountain Goats. I saw them live about two years ago and it was actually a way cooler show than I expected...one of my favorite in a long time, actually. It took place in a church, and there's nothing like hearing 500 people yell the words "Hail Satan!" in a church as loud as they can.

      They're not exactly unknown, but I also love Bright Eyes/Conor Oberst ("Lover I Don't Have to Love", "Bowl of Oranges", "Zigzagging Towards the Light").

      Also, the River City Extension song with the best lyrics (imo) is "Today I Feel Like I'm Evolving", not what I put in the OP.

        I saw them live as well; the show completely blew me away. I had heard that they were great but all of my expectations were greatly exceeded. It was a relatively small crowd, everyone knew all of the lyrics, and you just got the feeling that everyone really wanted to be there : ) Also the fact that you saw them in a church is hilarious and awesome!
