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.

Local Band....

Is this negligence?

I've been working in a department store (Belk) inside of a mall for almost three years now. I've never had any security problems and I've always felt safe up until last Friday. I departed from school around 2:20 and I arrived at work at 2:40pm for my 3 o'clock shift. Belk employees have to park on the third floor of the parking deck which I've been doing. On this particular day, the deck was a bit fuller than usual due to the Easter weekend so I parked in the very back of the deck against the…See More

Admiring aspects of times of oppression

I was having a conversation with a woman today and I made a positive comparison to the style and composition of women in the Antebellum South. An African-American lady overheard me speaking and became extremely angry that I made a positive reference to a time when her ancestors were enslaved. I asked her if she thought the bubonic plague was the only thing going on before the European Renaissance, then I asked her if taxes would be the only reason an American would have stayed loyal to Britain…See More
