What are some bands/musicians that you seem to know about but are not as well known to the rest of the world?  Post their stuff here and tell us why you like them.  They can be a favorite or they can simply be some talented artists you appreciate.

 

(I'll post some that I appreciate right after this.)

First and foremost is...

 

Ladylike

Ladylike is a little old-style pop band from my sort-of-hometown of Tempe, AZ.  They have a unique 50's style rock sound to them that's fun and unique.  I like them better then most stuff that's popular nowadays and it's refreshing to hear something different.  I'm friends with the lead singer of this band.  You can learn more about them on their facebook page.  They just released a new single you can purchase or listen to on Spotify.

 

The Spinto Band

This band is a little bit lesser known band that has some fun tunes.  I wouldn't say they blow my mind or anything but I like how they use kazoos in some of their songs and what not.

Dragonforce

When you first listen to Dragonforce you'd think you'd be hearing one of those rock bands from the 80s.  It may come to some surprise that this band came together in 2007.  (I think)  What I like about Dragonforce is that it's ridiculous.  And that's what makes it great.  It doesn't try to sing rock ballads about bad break ups or lost love but about the heat of battle and fantasy stuff.  It's like something you'd expect Jack Black to like.  Ha ha.  Beyond that though, there's some amazing guitar action in their songs.  Enjoy.

Christian Contemporary Music

What are your thoughts on it?For me, 90% of the stuff I've heard brings this quote to mind: "Christian rock music doesn't make Christianity any better, but it makes rock music worse." Maybe the radio station I listen to just happens to pick all the worst songs, but honestly, it's kinda depressing how technically unsatisfactory a lot of it is: the lyrics are shallow and cliched, and the music is ... meh. Even the recent songs that I really like are just sonic rip-offs of the latest (secular)…See More
