One of my favorite things to do is listening to music that I've never heard before. There's nothing like hearing great music for the first time. I'm always up for some new tunes.

Over the last year, what are your favorite 3-5 groups/individuals that you've never heard before (could be a new band or one you just haven't heard before)?

My top 4 would be:

Silversun Pickups
Band of Horses
Angels and Airwaves
Brandi Carlisle

Hank III
Ray Wylie Hubbard

For what it's worth, a friend of mine is best friends with Hank Williams III.

As for bands, I knew of them before, but I just got the new CD (their second) from Rooney, an LA-based band (http://www.rooney-band.com/). Fairly modern rock sound, but with a healthy dose of 70s and 80s influence.

If you have Directv, their performance at The Roxy in LA is playing on channel 101 this month.

Well, I search for new music constantly....a few bands I found before they got big, such as The Fray...

Onerepublic is picking up momentum, but I started listening to them when they were only on myspace with no CD out...

Melee I have been listening to for a little while, but still like them

Nevertheless I just found recently

Forever The Sickest Kids is another I just found.

Pandora.com is a great place to find new music.

A band that I found recently that I'm liking a lot is Saving Abel. I just got their Indie release and its excellent. They are coming out with a major label release sometime in March that should be very good. The single from it, "Addicted" will definately be a hit, IMO.

If you haven't already you might want to check out "Clap your hands say yeah". They've got their own Talking Heads thing going on. So much so that the first time I heard them I said to my friend "Did David Byrne make a good solo album I didn't know about?"

I've heard a bit of Clap Your Hands... on XM but I'll check them out some more. Thanks for the tip!

The Shout Out Louds sound to me like a bouncier, Swedish version of the Cure. Couple of the guys from Peter Bjorn & John were involved in the production of their latest album.

Kind of funny, I knew about them before most. I moved to Australia in 1981, and the day I moved into my flat there were posters on all the telephone poles around advertising INXS playing at the local pub. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to pronounce the name of the band. Inkses?

Anyway, my favorite newly discovered (for me) singers of 2007 were probably Kim Richey and Josh Ritter.

INXS was huge when i was in High School in the early 80's.

One band from the 70's that I have just "discovered" is "Television"

I had heard of them but never listened to them.

the album "marquee moon" is great.

One of my favorite bands ever, and probably the best band I have ever seen live. Have I talked about this here before? I feel like I have (I still talk about it a fair amount). It was just technically flawless. My friend who was with me commented at the time that she had not seen so much onstage tuning since Trout at the Battle of the Bands in high school, and she was right. They'd stand there before each song, tuning, tuning, tuning in complete silence (even freaking TUNING they held the crowd reverent), and then they'd break out with the first chord of a song and it was like glass cutting through the air. People often talk about strong technique freeing up an artist to really be expressive emotionally, but I've never seen such a palpable representation of that as I did during this show. And I'm not much of a musician, but even I could recognize this. Everything was just perfect, and the music just really transcended itself and left everybody about knocked out. I was totally sober, by the way.

I left that concert feeling simultaneously depressed at the thought that I could never ever do anything as well as they do what they do and totally uplifted that something that perfect exists in the world. I know that sounds totally hyperbolic but I really did feel like that. I was on air for days. I know their albums may not be for everyone, but I'd recommend a live show of theirs to anybody -- they don't play very often but they do still play. And if you ever hit on a bar that has the album on a jukebox, play Marquee Moon (the song) at about 1 am when everybody's had just enough but not too much to drink. It just keeps going, and going...and man. I love Television.

In return, my gift to you is Chevelle. They're great. Very underrated heavy alternative rock band. And they're coming to Cincy in April at Bogart's. I can't wait.

From this thread, I also like Rooney, Vampire Weekend, and The Kooks.

Thanks for sharing these bands. I look forward to hearing more good music. Keep it coming.

If you're into the more mellow singer/songwriter vibe, check out Matthew Santos (no relation to the fictional presidential candidate from The West Wing). It's good stuff, IMO.

For anyone that follows current Top-40 radio, he's the guy doing the background vocals on the new rap song "Superstar" by Lupe Fiasco.

With the iPod revolution, I am discovering and re-discovering a lot of music.

I totally missed the 90s. Was busy raising the kids and listening to Raffi, Barney and Disney Classics.

On the video thread someone mentioned "Everclear" whom I swear I had never heard.
Picked up "Sparkle and Fade" and "So much for the Afterglow" used on Amazon for $0.01 (plus 2.98 S+H) and really liked them (and the price, obviously).

From the newer stuff, I really like punk-pop band Allister. My daughters (now teenagers) are also coming up with newer stuff (I show them the classics, they show me "Death Cab For Cutie", etc.). No rap or hip-hop allowed (everyone's fine with that).

Keep this thread going, I've got a lot of blanks to fill in...will be checking this stuff out.

Thanks, guys.

Art lives here in town and has an office down the street from Pedro's house, occasionally we see him pacing around the sidewalk smoking... he has that pent up ex junkie nervous shuffle.

There is no band that sings more about personal life stuff then Everclear, sometimes it's downright scary.

Defiance Ohio (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defiance,_Ohio_(band)).

A great band from here in Bloomington.

There is a punky/folky scene that escalates in the summer when kids seem to migrate across the country, squatting on farm land and going to underground punk concerts.

PLAN-IT-X (http://www.plan-it-x.com/) Records, also located here Bloomington, is very much a part of that scene. They sponsored a festival (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plan-It-X_Records#Plan-It-X_Fest) a few summers ago and downtown Bloomington was full of very dirty and very smelly punk kids for a week. But they were very cool, for the most part.

EDIT: Seems PLAN-IT-X (http://www.plan-it-x.com/)is now in Gainesville. Don't know when that happened. Anyway, their website is now streaming music. Check it out- it's all pretty cool.

I adore Everclear. Really. Sparkle and Fade is just fabulous. Arts certainly at his best when railing on his own past misfortunes and mistakes, but even his 'pop' songs are solid contributions.

They have a song called "You make me feel like a *****" and Art and the boys were doing an acoustic set at his then young daughters pre-school....they changed the lyrics to 'You make me feel like I'm four'. It was touching in a twisted way.

I'm not a star.....well you know the second half, but Art's one of those guys I'd like to meet. If there were one of those dinners where you could invite three people....and I limited it to music, Art would be one of them. So very cool that WOY and Pedro see him on occasion.

I saw them at Irving Plaza 2003/2004ish. I want to say fall 2004.

At that time they were playing a few shows a year, always a summer festival in the UK. Not sure if they have kept this up or not.

Do a lot of people actually like July For Kings? Maybe I just don't get it. Their stuff sounds so mediocre to me.

Also, Television has to be one of the more underrated/underappreciated bands ever. It happens when you don't have a lot of material though. Julian from The Strokes said that Television is by far their biggest influence (which makes sense).

Anyway, I'll make a few recommendations.

The first is to check out Panic at the Disco's new record, "Pretty Odd." They're not exactly a new band, but the record is new and it sounds really good. It sounds nothing like their first effort and musically, this album sounds like a Beatles record (a cross between "Sgt. Pepper" and "Magical Mystery Tour"). I did not care for their first album at all, but this is a special record.

Secondly, I recommend Duffy. Great singer from Whales and she's like this really cool hodgepodge sound of Dusty Springfield, Norah Jones, Dolly Parton, Amy Winehouse and some others I'm not thinking of. I'm curious to see how she'll be embraced in America.

Butch Walker

I got dragged to a Butch Walker concert at the Knitting Factory in New York several years ago. Had never heard of him and knew nothing about him. He was INCREDIBLE. He is just one of these performers who goes all out with no apologies and thought to consequence. The antithesis of live Television whom I referenced earlier in the thread. By the end of the concert he was down in the crowd leaning against a column, singing a capella with sweat pouring off him as everybody stood there enraptured. A really unique musician. I've never even bought his stuff -- I suspect that he is someone, like Ian Moore, who is a live artist, period...or at least someone who never measures up on record once you've seen him live. Great stuff. he has a real mish-mash of old styles going on that sound really old school in person that I don't think would translate to record.

I'm enjoying a band called Dodos this week. Bit poppy, bit rhythmic, bit all over the place...they're fun.

I discovered Butch Walker during the Hair Band Hey Day when he was with Southgang. I thought he had slipped into obscurity until I did a search for Southgang on You Tube and it gave me the video for M3's "Freak of the Week". I was blown away by the transformation in musical style over what he used to do.

I kind of see his style as being as you said, a mish mash, mostly of Queen, David Bowie, and still some 80's hard rock roots.

I was really disappointed that I found out who Marvelous 3 was 8 years after Butch, Jayce, and Slug called it quits.

I discovered Butch Walker during the Hair Band Hey Day when he was with Southgang. I thought he had slipped into obscurity until I did a search for Southgang on You Tube and it gave me the video for M3's "Freak of the Week". I was blown away by the transformation in musical style over what he used to do.

I've been listening to Bush's Sixteen Stone. I know I'm about 15 years behind most of the stuff I discover...

Whoever mentioned pandora.com (http://www.thehollywoodgossip.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/08/beavis.jpg)- THANKS!

I have been listening to it for the last week and I'm amazed at how well it works.
I tell everyone I know about that website, it really passes the time for me.

Recent re-discovery of music I just plain missed: The House Of Love and Echo & The Bunnymen's first two albums (Crocodile in particular is a classic)

Also have found that I have a soft spot for Blind Willie Johnson's old pre-blues records and early Bob Dylan's less known songs that are just as good as his "greatest hits."

I have found myself liking "The Black Angels" out of Austin, TX quite a bit. Really drony at times, but much more likeable and entertaining than, say, Black Mountain, whom I find to be quite boring and dull. The Angels new CD is a good one, but the last couple of songs lose my attention, yet the rest are top notch. Their debut is very good also.

I've recently (re-)descovered Dark Tranquility, Symphony X, Every time I die, and The Early November.
