Music You Probably Never Heard But Might Love

It's fun to discover new music that you love, and there are a lot of great musicians and bands that don't get the recognition they deserve. Let's introduce each other to some of that music!

Let's post a video or two, or at least a link to a music sample, of one band or musician you know of that isn't well known. Modern act or old, any genre, male or female or group ... it doesn't matter. If you like it, someone else probably will too, and we'll help each other discover new favorites.

I'll start with Paul Black and the Flip Kings. They only put out two CD's that I know of and don't tour much, if at all, because of Paul's health. I was lucky enough to see this Madison based band back when he was feeling good and was mesmorized by Paul's slide guitar (even better live than recorded).

It's a three-man band. Paul plays lead/slide guitar, sings lead, and plays a little harmonica. Hope you like it!

    If you're an NFL fan you've probably heard this song as a soundtrack to NFL Films clips...It's a song by Sam Spence who is a very underrated composer.

    Listen to the song on its own merits and not just as a sound track...It's pretty cool.

          Hey Frank...You'd win that bet.

          Jeff Beck has found his youth, he's been playing with a lot of the young talent in the UK. It's good seeing the kids keeping this music alive...But it seems to be a trend in the UK and not as much here in the US.

          Here's a favorite of mine, a tribute to Les Paul with Imelda doing a great job singing Mary Ford's part.

      Dennis,

      Great idea for a thread; I'm always happy to discover new music.

      Here's a Swedish singer I've been listening to lately. I only picked up on her music because she contributed to the soundtrack of a Swedish TV detective series I got into called "Wallander"

      Her name's Anna Ternheim and she sounds a bit like an in-tune Dido.

      Dennis, it is a good idea. I started a thread a few years ago titled something like Unknown and/or Underappreciated Music. I believe it was one of the first music threads here using youtube videos. Anyways, here's the trio Air playing a couple Scott Joplin songs King Porter Stomp and Weeping Willow Rag about 80 years after they were written:

      I really love this band, sadly now long split up. They might be new to some of you - although they came from New Mexico, I suspect they were better known in Europe than in the US.

      The first video is a cover of a well-known song; the second, one of their own numbers.

    I like Hazeldine, Frank. The music reminds me some of Neil Young on the Ragged Glory album (I think his most underrated album).

    Based on what you've posted so far, I thought you might like Grace Weber. I'm not familiar with much of her music, I just discovered her yesterday.

    oncewerewarriors, let me help you ... posting videos is a little different than embedding video on a web page. To embed a video, find the one you want at YouTube and click the Share button. Then click the Show Options link, and put a checkmark by the "long link" option. Copy the code in the text box. It should be one line that looks something like this:

    Code:
    http : //www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsVqFLbGCvI
    To embed the video here on the forum, place that URL in between BB URL tags. Like this:

    Code:
    (url)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsVqFLbGCvI(/url)
    You'll have to change this ( to [ and this ) to ] and should embed the video. I had to substitute the brackets so it wouldn't turn into a link. I think this is the video you wanted:


    That's another band I hadn't heard of, thanks.

    @ Michael - Rock on, indeed! I hadn't heard of St. Vincent either. Good stuff, but you know me, I like anything that is even just a little bit bluesy.

    Im a new Paul Black fan! I have never heard such a unique slide tone. Most people think its effects when someone sounds so different.... but its really that people have different ways of touching the strings....This guy has a real cool touch. Thanks Dennis!

    another great example of personal touch. at about 3:11 the drums stop and she starts pounding this one note... most people would just hold the note down with their left hand and pluck with their right... there isnt any reason not to hold the note down (on the surface) because it doesnt change... but the "tone"... the personal feel comes from the fact that she is simultaneously hammering down on the note instead of holding it down with her left hand, and she hammers at the precise moment of striking it with the right, then lifting back up so the note doesnt hold out at all... "Yeah staccato, big deal" right?

    No thats not it, its the timing when she comes back down on the note and plucks at the exact moment of hammering down on it causes that fat kind of out of phase tone combined with the staccato feel that comes from immediately raising back up off of it and ending the sustain... also the way she is hammering down close to the fret gives it a little extra buzz, so this note has alot of texture... not real heavy effects other than distortion... She looks like she is thrashing mindlessly but she has developed a personal way of attacking her notes... Now I dont think that makes her Steve Vai or anything... but it tells you that even "seemingly" clueless type rockers who dont play a million notes can have technique and be intentional... and they sound the way they do for a reason. I appreciated her alot. Alot of [people think an individuals sound comes by accident, but I appreciate that she seems to be doing that on purpose. Its more than I expect from most obscure type thrasher guitar players. Ill bet she is also real attached to her fender Jaguar (or Jazz master), because she seems very intentional about her tone.

    Peoples personal feel is really important... A note is not just a note... If it were she could just hold it down with the left hand and not move her hand from the note, and just pound on it with the right...because the actual note doesnt change, but the way she attacks it gives it a personal tone thats unique.

    Had to go there. Sorry.

      John, I wish you could have seen him live when he had his health. He could just hypnotize you with the guitar. I've had the CD those two songs came from for at least 10 years, and it's still one of my favorites. Every song on the CD is good. I sure wish I could play like that.

      Sony has some kind of gadget where you can mix and match from thousands of sound loops to create your own music of sorts, and Paul supplied most (maybe all) of the slide guitar licks for it. I can't remember what the name of the gadget or software is, I just remember I wanted it long ago but it was very expensive.

    I can understand why they (sony) used him, he has a real nice way of hearing a slide and playing it. Very unique. Almost similar to the way he sings... Music is so cool if you are really into it, you can hear all the little nuances that alot of people miss...Which is probably why you can appreciate a guy like this, being a musician.

    Here is what I have been doing besides posting this eve... learning the acoustic lick on this. This guy gives a good lesson:

        Sad for them, I suppose. Personally, there aren't many songs I like that do get played on the radio if you're talking Top 40, main stream stuff. You never know though ... if the right person hears them at the right time it can make all the difference in the world. Stranger things have happened.

        Thanks, Steven!

      I've been a huge fan of Canadian, Oh Susanna (Suzie Ungerleider) since she started recording back in the late '90s, but I fear she's destined to stay largely unknown and criminally underrated.

      After searching almost in vain for several years on YouTube to find quality postings of her music, I was thrilled to recently discover that she now has her very own YouTube channel

      Say what you like about YouTube; but in my view, it's the best thing to have happened to music lovers (aka nerds) since pirate radio.

      Here's Oh Susanna with a live performance of one of her songs:

    Shazam Kurt! That's incredible the way that guy plays all those different parts at the same time. The song grows on you in just one playing. Incredible.

    Frank, I like that too. Kind of a lonely sound, but it has the same kind of appeal to me that Robert Plant's Big Log does. I'd give you another "thanks" but my button is gone.

    Pete - Of all the videos you posted, I liked the Paloma Faith vids the best. Thanks! Question for you ... are "bully in the alley" and "bully on the shinbone" to be taken literally, or as I suspect, are they expressions that mean something else? Translation please?

    For the more eclectic tastes ... too bad the recording quality is so bad, it's a better song than it sounds.

    Here's a song I really like from Phantom, Rocker and Slick. Phantom and Rocker were the bass and drummer for Stray Cats before Brian Setzer left the band...

    Most blues fans will have heard of Duke Robilard, but others probably haven't:

    I'm not sure how popular Spirit was on a national level back in the day, but I'm guessing they'll be new to a lot of folks.

    I don't normally listen to rock, pop or rhythm n' blues music. I'm more into classical, easy-listening and folk.

    Hoewever, I really like these two. Their harmonics are fabulous; their percussion and voice - superb. I REALLY like their style!

    Val, when you're on YouTube click the Share button. That will open a dialog with a Link to this video url. To the right is a link that says Show Options. Click that, then check the Long Link box. Copy the url.

    Once you've done that, paste it in between [url] and [/url] BB tags. The link for your video would then look like this:

    [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPQRlKsEIak[/url]
    If you have the editor turned on for your account it's even easier. There's a little blue globe with two chain links. Click that icon and paste in the url and you're done.


    PS - Carlos, thanks for the tip on the no parse tag.
