Anybody on GC like music that isn't well-known?

Discussion in 'Music genres, Bands and Artists' started by lysergiclynx, Dec 23, 2012.

  1. I like to listen to garage rock bands and surf-influenced music such as The Growlers, Ty Segall, Wavves, The Black Lips, bands that are local and bands that aren't well-known. Please post any genre of music that you like, although I'd prefer if it were grungy or surf-ish. It would also be cool if you posted stuff that's not well-known and chill to smoke to.
  2. Wavves is pretty well known man, ever since Pitchfork helped him he blew up. But yeah I love hunting for gems through obscurities. I used to spend hours upon hours shifting through blogs and record stores for new shit to listen to.

    My personal favorite recent discovery

  3. Stoner rock band from my city with half the members of Tame Impala in Kevin Parker on drums, used to watch them live all the time.

  4. I Listen to hardcore more than anything else.

    Bands like:
    Another Mistake
    Fire & Ice
    Free at Last
    No Tolerance
    Soul Search
    Stick Together.

    Whenever i try talking about hardcore here, people just think A7X, etc. shit gets old fast.
  5. Only mostly everything I listen to
  6. That was rad! Especially the drums.. Definitely checking this band out

  11. Wavves and The Black Lips are fairly mainstream at this point. If the mainstream was a real thing, those two groups would be dipping their toes in the waters, so to speak. Wavves was just on a track with Big Boi and B.o.B. on Big Boi's newest album.

    Los Valientes del Mondo Nuevo was a pretty well-received album. I thought it was pretty good.

    Most of my "non-mainstream" bands are in the realms of punk and metal so it's a little bit of a different ballgame, because any time you mention one of those bands, an IMN or IPN will come out of the woodwork and be like THAT SHIT IS MAINSTREAM FUCK YOU MAN. Some jambands are in there too but that has more to do with who I know than what I listen to.

  12. Nice man, there live shows are a lot jammier than there albums they just incorporate a lot more instrumental sections in to there songs and merge them all. Never seen Nick Cave I'd imagine that'd be a great experience have fun man.
  13. You guys have got to see Ty Segall live. I saw them about a week ago and they told the security guards to fuck off so that everybody can go onstage and crowd surf. Everyone was either in a pit, doing flips into the crowd, or crowd surfing. Really energetic and fun vibes
  14. I think the majority of blades listen to music that isn't well known.

    Primarily for the reason that we smoke bud, and have a keen sense for good sounding music. Having an open mind to explore different varieties of genres and dig deeper for that personal mind-soothing artist we have been looking for.

    Just my opinion though.

  16. I recommend anyone interested in hiphop instrumentals to take a look at this.

  17. What the hell is an IMN/IPN?.. cuz I'm one of those. :D

    I listen to some mainstream bands and artists of certain genres or time periods. I would never be caught dead listening to mainstream punk or metal, though. For the most part, I'm strictly devoted to the underground; far better quality of music and aesthetically pleasing.
  18. YeeEEE the growlers!
