>tfw there is a AnCo-ish band in my town
Thee Audio Wreck, Kind of Like Spitting, Green & Lilac, Bogsey and the Argonauts, Chatterbox and the Latter Day Satanists,
Jib Jab Jones & the Indigo Circus, Cyclops & The Owl, Awahnichi, Travis James & The Acrimonious Assembly Of Arsonists, Vetuasaber, Hoor-paar-Kraat
Not all of them are local, but they've either played a show in my hometown or played with my or a friend's band.
I have a Jackie Chan album. Its actually pretty good. His Wikipedia doesn't mention it, and the only torrent my friend found of it had 2 downloads, so I guess that's my most obscure thing
found it in a 50 cent bin at a half priced books
i have some EP done by a screamo band called We Killed John Lennon. All the records are improv and apparently they only existed for a few nights. The music is ass but it's cool to say i have it
>mfw i like it, but the video is fucking lame
they sound a little like justice too
What's the point with listening to obscure music simply for the point of it being obscure? You guys remind me of my former stoner friend
>Bro, you gotta listen to these trance-tracks I found on YouTube, they all have under 1000 views, bro
I miss sharethreads so much.
Especially Klytus Scandinavian sharethreads.
I have a compilation of every good song ever done by anybody. Every great song by the Beach Boys. All the underground hits. All the Modern Lovers tracks. I have a vinyl of every Niagra record on German import. I have a white label of every seminal Detroit techno hit - 1985, '86, '87. I have a CD compilation of every good '60s cut and another box set from the '70s.
a digital copy of an album by art faggotry called art faggotry. 15 physical copies but i'm pretty sure plenty of people have the digital copy so not really very obscure.
besides stuff that I made that i'll never release
Found this at a 99 cent store about 10 years ago, apparently Savage Pencil played guitar on it
Some stuff a friend made it is actually pretty good
ive heard of most of those artists
as for me, i guess the most obscure thing i listen to, according to last.fm is lilangelboi, quays, and sohsie LAN, plus some other new acts that will likely get way more popular in a few months
Most obscure stuff I have is stuff that has a couple hundred listeners on last.fm. Actual obscure stuff probably wouldn't have a last.fm page.
Probably most obscure is the Upperdeckers, which is stuff made by someone I know. Still, has 20 listeners on last.fm.
I got an EP for free at a local music event a few years ago with the task listing written on it in sharpie. I suppose that would count as it. It's actually really great and I still listen to it.
Things You Do For Love: http://youtu.be/iaDT4NZ96VU
Here's one of the songs from it.
You're either from my area, lying, or these groups have gotten a lot bigger in the recent year or so.
Kind of Like Spitting probably doesn't belong with the rest of those on the list.
Holy Wave - Relax
cool local acid rock/psych rock band, got signed to a small record label. theyre really good and all nice dudes, check em out
despite Fantano recommending them on his podcast, Maker still remain fairly obscure too. they seem to have deleted their soundcloud and Facebook a good while ago, much to my disappointed.
My favorite album the too few people have heard
i guess pic related, it's recordings of swedish children tales / lullabyes
i got it from /mu/ though so one of you fuckers might have snatched it up when i did, was a couple of years ago though i think
Uh, probably an album from my band that we haven't released.
Other than that, it's this demo cassette with the name "The Dork Tape". Someone left a bunch of them free at this little record store in Oakland. Never found any kind of information about it since then. It's some kind of bad garage punk thing, although it's been awhile since I listened to it.
this is probably the most obscure thing ive got
I downloaded some album off bandcamp once. Gorgery Rodowuff - Speckled Pup Under a Red Wagon. Sounded remarkably like Aphex Twin. Went back to that page later on, it was the same album - but with completely different songs. Then the page disappeared without a trace. Pretty strange.
I have a bootleg album of a local comedy rap group. They're legends where I live
>Every great song by the Beach Boys.
He said the Peech Boys you pleb
This and Abu Lahab are the only artists in my library I would consider "obscure."
I have some of Ryuichi Sakamoto's albums that were used by companies for commercials and other such things. I don't really understand Japanese, so the only title I can really give you is CM/TV.
I first heard of these songs in this video:
The song is called ??? ??????'84. I was simply searching "JAPANESE COMMERCIAL MUSIC 84" for a while before learning that it was by Sakamoto. I thought the song was really beautiful, and the accompanying tracks are good too.
I have this one "album" by a group called. The Jake Adjutant Band. Really it was just the random lo-fi faffing of some guy whom I was friends with on a Rock Band/Guitar Hero forum, but I bet it's listenable when stoned. Jake, if you're reading this thread right now (he always seemed like a person who'd end up here), you're a bro.
I was internet friends with this guy and he used to send me CDs of his music (I especially liked his jazz influenced type instrumentals) we fell out of contact with each other (my fault, really) but if I'm ever not so broke and not such a cheapstake I'd like to buy copies of whatever albums he's put out since the last one he sent me.
Plumtree, Diners, Little Wings
Not really obsucure, but theyre all fucking phenomenal and for some reason Ive never hear anyone here talk about them and that upsets me
(captcha: Eldscin SPEAKS!)
When I was a kid I heard this remix of Gymnopedie. It was by a group named Vorpal and I loved it (search it if you're into drone / IDM kinda stuff its fucking amazing) so like a year ago I e-mailed them and asked why they dont make music anymore. They said they didn't have the time so they sent me 4 WIPs that were never going to be released. So I was the only person in the world that had these tracks and they were really good
but then my hard drive failed and I lost that shit
Not THAT obscure, but not many people talk about them, 764-Hero
Sr. Chinarro is pretty obscure to the English-speaking world
Also, Anklepants is mostly just known for the weird factor (even though he makes really good music)
Obscurity's a pretty bad way of determining what music you'd like. There's so many different types of obscure music, nobody ever knows what definition you're using.
>Obscure as in really weird and experimental, probably doesn't have a large fanbase, although anything can get popular thanks to the internet.
>Foreign, limited or old recordings that are hard to find
>shitty bands that have no fans because no one likes them
Of course these can overlap.
I have a friend with an atmospheric black metal band and I have physical copies of all of their demos, including hand-drawn covers. A couple of which were released by a weird Swedish "label" with a website that is now down I think.
I also have a lot of my friends' basement recordings.
Nothing too special.
hedluv+passman are british novelty "casio-rap"
all of their beats are made on all casios and Hedluv's composition is excellent. Plus they're both good rappers and funny guys. Nice quaint happy shit. They're actually touring with Rhys Darby right now
Get on this level.
Not a band I, or any mates of mine, know personally
>far from famous or ultra successful
>About 5 supporters on bandcamp including myself
We Are Far Too Easily Pleased/Holiday by the Goodfight. It was two EPs that they put on one CD. lead singer was a really cool guy I knew who was a worship leader at our church, but his music wasn't Christian music. First side was melodic punk, second half was folk. Now he sells real estate.
>although anything can get popular thanks to the internet
and the answer is nope because tv and radio stations talk about music in a way like their stuff was 99% of all artists.
if intenet changed stuff, you would have all those teenagers trolling mainstream artists last.fm profiles and youtube videos, born in the wrong generation, those same teengers saying black sabbath is unique (WTF is doom metal) and etc...
if that was true they would seach about bands and listen to it, as lazyiness and time is not a problem to them seem by the amount of time they spend doing this
I found an album of 80s Japanese celtic folk in my backlog a while back and I have no idea where it came from
they have 9 listeners on lastfm and not much else online that I could find so thats probably my most obscure
