The Fall of Troy. Many people have heard their most famous song 'F.C.P.R.E.M.I.X' and presume they are just emo rock, but they really aren't. They are also REALLY good musicians.

They even broke up, and it was blatantly obvious it was 'cause they just weren't selling enough CDs anymore :\

There's a good few obscure and just mainstream-obscure artists here, and a lot of tasty eargum (I liked SamGreen's list). But to me, underappreciated means, working in a total veil of obscurity, or the "rejected unknown", producing absolute nuggets of gold that barely anyone has ever heard. Or I would say that, except Daniel Johnston has made some really terrible songs, too. Part of his charm is that he's out there making this music for only himself, really. He's just a sorry entertainer, a retired boxer, a monkey in zoo, in any case.

I don't really know how to describe his music properly. I recommend the documentary on him from a few years ago, Devil and Daniel Johnston, describing his music as it's incredibly direct, raw, and real. I, for one, did not like him much at all the first time I heard him, and didn't even really appreciate him for a year. It's, lo-fi folk, indiepop songwriting genius.

On the more classical-New Age side of things, Ludovico Einaudi. He's simply incredible.

Also, Karl Jenkins and his Adiemus project.

I don't get it, most of you are posting artists that are popular, doesn't mean you haven't heard of them that they aren't all that.

Daft Punk is popular. Imogen Heap is popular. Nightwish did know a great deal of success. All of those 3 made it at a point or another on top of very well known charts. Just a reminder; music that is not heavily advertised does not mean they did not get their share of thousands/millions of albums sold.

Even Miranda Cosgrove made it on the billboard very fast, top 10 for a little while. It's just harder for a well-known actor/actress to switch or alter careers without having a huge fan base making a priority of how they knew her/him in the first place. The switch can be brutal or very well perceived at times, it depends of a lot of factors.

On the other hand I like this topic because it does give people a chance to discover new music if you haven't heard of them I guess. =) But there's a lot of misleading info in here too.

Edit: Wah, my apology. I did not notice this topic was 2+ months old until I posted, I got hyped by the music talk. Disregard my reply... moving on.

Omar Akram

Sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3r99DIRPE2s

This dude has created some of the most beautiful relaxing romancing new age piano music I've ever heard. I find his lack of popularity somewhat odd. On one hand casual people simply don't listen to instrumental music, but on the other hand I can't imagine them hearing his music and not liking it. It just seems that nobody has ever heard of him! When I first discovered him about 5 years ago he had less than 100 listeners at Last.fm... Since then he's gained a tiny bit of popularity: ~10,000 listeners at Last.fm, ~5,000 fans on Facebook. The YouTube sample linked above has gathered half a million views in 2.5 years with 1337 likes vs. 11 dislikes. I think he's one of the best in the world at what he does, and find this numbers way too small.

Nickelback, they have exceptional skill on their instruments and their advanced usage of tonal harmony (which borderlines on Avant-Garde) goes unmatched in the modern word. Not to mention their unique blend of guitar tones that sounds heavenly when heard in each of their masterpieces. If there was only one band I could listen to, It would be them. ....absolute genius.

A close second would be Rebecca black.

Dimitri Shostakovich, one of my favorite composers.

Vladimir Cochet, a metal musician with three one-man-bands:

Weeping Birth, Brutal Black/Death Metal.
Mirrorthrone, Experimental, Atmospheric, Symphonic Black/Death Metal. Simply beautiful.
Unholy Matrimony, Black Metal.

I'm probably the only one here to like this kind of music, but WTH, Cochet's music is truly underrated.

Lols @ Rebecca Black. That made my day a little.

He's not actually so well known here (at least I don't think so, I really don't know many people who listen to him), but I'd put Elliott Smith down. I've met like, four people in Scotland who've actually heard of/like him. And he's just awesome <3


I definitely have a love for Elliott Smith. I've listed him below. His music has shaped me in many ways.

QUOTE (SamGreen @ Apr 10 2011, 01:04 PM) *
I love Tove. I think Sweden's produced some of the best pop EVER. I mean just think of the talent... ABBA, Robyn, Erik Hassle, September and many more XD

Yeah, I think I can agree she's not good, what I meant was she didn't need the auto-tune so much.
That cover was brilliant although "Friday" sounded like "Fried Egg" haha XD


I definitely agree with this comment about Sweden. Another Swedish band I would I would recommend would be Versant. It's led by Carah Faye Charnow (Previously of Shiny Toy Guns, and now reunited with them again.). They only have an EP released, but I've been following their progress for some time. In any case, I'll list them below along with some others. There are SO MANY different musicians I'd like to list, but I'll try to keep it to a good amount with varied genres and samples for all.

Anyway, I've (lately) been into Dope, Blood On The Dance Floor, and Skrillex. I've tried talking to people about them but no one seems to know them. They're fucking awesome.
