original member Zolod died in early 2000s sadly. this album is a re-release of an old album from them, and some of there stuff was available only on cassette too.

oldschool russian psytrance, when psytrance was still innovating and defining itself.

Net Shaker - I'm So Cold

One of the best albums of 2013. Only 800-then-some scrobbles in total for the entire band.
It's hard to classify this one. It's a bit industrial, wavy, lo-fi,hypnotic pop. although pop might be misleading.
Very well crafted.

I have no idea, but it seems like "These Rappers Claim They Hard When Them Fags Never Even Seen The Pen" and "You A Hater Like Them Cowards That Killed 2Pac" are the exact same album.

Neither one came with tags, so I don't know what the tracks are called. But "Track 1", "Track 2", "Track 3" etc. are not Viperesque enough to be the real titles.

to those implying something is not obscure

if we get world population
then get discogs amount of bands
then assume each person listen to at average 100 bands and those listeners are equally listened between bands
you will get 197612 listeners to each band

but last .fm doenst have all humans of the world there, so lets make this math
197612 / ((world population) / 51.1 million)
and you get 1416 listeners to each band

lol no, but I didn't see southern rock band at the bottom. I'd call them post rock or instrumental math rock, but they're from atlanta and play instruments, so I guess southern rock band is technically correct.

Local emo/party punk duo. These dudes live about an hour from me and I saw and met both of them over the summer. Really talented musicians and super fun, catchy music that sticks with you plus has a lot of character. And honestly, it was one of the best live performances I've seen. It could have been just because they were loud as fuck in a packed room of 15, but I actually started tripping out stone sober and I got so into it. They recently put out their last album and then split up because they both went off to college. Highly recommend

>Car Seat Headrest
Most of you guys probably know this one but he only has 7,713 listeners.

>Barlow
>5,375 listeners
I found these guys in a bandcamp thread on here actually. It's funny because I don't care for shoegaze normally (Didn't like Loveless) but I absolutely adore their EP "Fell Asleep." Seriously, it should be illegal to make music this catchy. If anyone knows any other music that sounds like this, I'd appreciate a rec.

Looking at how many listeners all of my other artists have makes me feel like my music is way less obscure, which is actually a huge relief.
