Roll Call for B-list musicians


Recommended Posts

Between being bored and listening to music, I thought of a game that will be (hopefully) be fun, as well as help everyone here learn a little something about each other, as well as spread publicity to artists you think are good and could use the hype.

 

The game is simple. Starting from the letter "A", name one artists whose name begins with A, and one artists whose name begins with "B", etc until you have 26 artists from A to Z.Name artists you like but for some reason or the other just don't get alot of hype, radio/video play. It'll be fun as to see what people will list, and you may find an artist you like that you would've otherwise never heard. If you want to add a brief description to why you are listing this person, a certain song by them that others should search for, etc, feel free to do so...just keep the brief description "brief".

 

To start things off....

 

A-Amerie-sexy, smooth voice, smoother body.

B-Black Milk-Search for his song "Without You" and it'll explain everything

C-Cold War Kids-Nice, raw rock sound

D-Dwele-R&B without the oversaturated "sex" vibe. Just smooth soulful R&B

E-Erykah Badu-Call Tyrone wasn't enough?

F-Floetry-R&B+Spoken word=Awesome

G-Grand Puba-older hip-hop, but the classics are a must to pick up

H-Hi-Tek-Even if you have to download it, pick up Hi-Teknology Vol.1

I-India.Arie-Her music makes you not only okay, but proud to be different

J-J Dilla, Producer of the Roots, the Pharcyde, Slum Village, Dela Soul...and had flow. 1974-2006 RIP

K-K-Os-Rapping over accoustic guitars. Nice

L-Lupe Fiasco-Raw talent, reminiscent of old school rap. Pop appeal without being flashy.

M-Madvillain-Find "Raid" and tell me they're not worth a listen.

N-Norah Jones-Winning best new artist was still a snub to how great her music is

O-Outkast...prior to The Love Below...

P-Pharoahe Monch-Simon says give him a listen

Q-Q-Tip-"The Renaissance" could've very well been the best rap album of 2008

R-The Roots-Hip Hop's only true "band"

S-Slum Village-Fantastic Vols. 1 & 2 are hip hop classics.

T-Talib Kweli-In my books, far better suited to dethrone Jay-Z as the "king of Brooklyn"

U-Can't think of anything for this letter

V-Vince Guaraldi-The jazz genius behind many "peanuts" music

W-Will Smith-Doing such a great job at acting, everybody forgot he can rap

X-Whatever happened to Xzibit?

Y-Yo Yo Ma-Well known, but still worth listening to...

Z-Zapp & Roger-More Bounce to the ounce...

Great idea. I love way too many bands that seem to be unheard of, but deserve as much recognition as their more successful brethren.

 

AED of Uppereastside: Deep rap/hip-hop lyrics.

Ballydowse: Amazing variety of instruments and cultures with roots in punk rock. Their songs are stunning in both sound and message.

Crashdog: One of the most fervent and meaningful political punk bands I have ever encountered. Forerunner of Ballydowse, btw.

The Dingees: Divine mixture of reggae, ska, dub, punk, and who-knows-what-else. Full of both fun and meaning. Unique, but slightly reminiscent of The Clash, and the genre mixing is not unlike what Sublime did.

Every Mans Hero: Powerful screaming/shouting hardcore punk.

FurtherMore: Quirky, creative hip-hop.

GRITS: Christian rap/hip-hop with fun songs and deep lyrics.

The Havoc: By far my all-time favorite street punk band. Intense!

Intro5pect: Raging electro-punk! What could be better? Related to Leftover Crack, btw.

Jimmy Cliff: Good classic reggae

KJ-52: His first album, 7th Avenue, contains some amazing hip-hop.

likeDavid: Christian...post-hardcore? "Who Are You Spitting At" is epically intense.

Mars ILL: Absolutely wonderful creative hip-hop.

New Riders of the Purple sage: Very nice 60s country-rock.

One-21: Great punk/hardcore punk.

Pink Martini: Beautiful.

QuiVah: Hip-hop

Richard Hell & The Voidoids: Lovely early punk.

Spudgun: Epically fun old-school style (but not old) punk rock.

Television: Beautiful and deep post-punk.

Upside Down Room: Fun punk-o-billy.

The Velvet Underground: I'm currently obsessed with them.

War Rocket Ajax: More fun punk-o-billy.

X: Nice old punk band

Yellowman: Highly enjoyable dancehall reggae. "Everybody jump around, reggae on the move!"

ZAO: Some of their songs are epic.

Going off of my iPod since I don't want to be doing this forever:

 

Aquabats- Kind of weird but a lot of fun both live and on CD.

Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution (BOTAR) - punk / ska but acoustic and with instruments you wouldn't expect, like cello and french horn.

Chumbawumba - The one song you know of theirs isn't their best.

Dr. Octopus - good ska from down under. Guess the being down under part doesn't help w/ success stateside.

Edna's Goldfish - little emo every now and then, but incredibly catchy upbeat music.

The Forces of Evil - ska super group with most of the musical talent in the genre in one spot. Great horn players.

Goldfish Don't Bounce (GDB) - local reggae group from Las Vegas, but really good stuff. Girls Aloud a close second. They're huge in England, but how 5 incredibly hot women singing catchy pop music hasn't hit big in the states is a shock.

The Hippos- a ton of radio friendly songs and a song I think most people would enjoy.

Iron & Wine - comes up on pandora enough, and is pretty big, but don't hear them on the radio too often. Also a shortage of bands on the iPod that start with I.

Jefferies Fan Club - the most I've ever heard of them was in Disney Channel's Johnny Tsunami.

Kara's Flowers - on a technicality. They became Maroon 5, but the previous band was a little edgier and still as good.

Las Vegas Brass Band - British style brass band with a ton of people from the strip, local schools, UNLV, ex-professionals...if you're ever in Vegas check them out. The shows always have a good mix of humor, jazz, and classical music. Helps that I was in the band.

MC Lars- he seems to be gaining steam w/ commercials on G4, but I don't think there are too many people that can rap cliffsnotes for Hamlet and Moby Dick and make it sound good.

Natalia Imbruglia - wow I thought "I" was sparse. Ummm...her stuff in the 90's was pretty good and she was cute.

OK Go-as soon as their video with the treadmills lost its allure they seemed to disappear despite the fact that they're a good band.

Patent Pending - great bunch of guys and great live shows.

Reel Big Fish - Big in '96 but not so much after that. Absolutely great concerts and fun music.

Suburban Legends - I'm not as much of a fan of their last two albums, but they are the hardest working band I've ever seen. I think they played over 600 shows in a year thanks to playing at Disneyland rather consistently. Great live shows.

Transition - downloaded them a while ago and had that polished garage punk sound that would seem to push them to stardom.

U2 - ummm yeah I'm not even sure if I know who the other bands I have on the iPod are

Vengaboys - Come on Mr. Six dances to them, they have to be bigger right?

Westbound Train - very relaxed ska / reggae with one of the smoothest sounding vocalists I've heard

Yelo Melo- French ska. Its catchy why not.

Zolof the Rock and Roll Destroyer - good catchy music, even if the lyrics make absolutely no sense 90% of the time.

Eh, why not. Let's see if my 337 songs have some good B-list bands.

 

The Answer - Thanks iTunes for your free singles! Pretty good classic metal-style band.

Bang Camaro - Really only known for Guitar Hero games, but they actually have really good guitar and a unique chorus-like vocal style.

Campaign - Sure they're just a worship band, and their recorded stuff is average, but they're really incredible live.

Drist - Just look up Arterial Black. 'Nuff said.

EndeverafteR - Really great hair metal style band, excellently varied songs on their album.

Freezepop - I know, it's just another Guitar Hero song. But they're pretty awesome anyway.

Green Day - The only real band starting with G that I have on my iPod. Shut up, ok?

Hellogoodbye - Excellent electronic band. People really only know "Here (in your arms)".

Incubus - Yeah. They're pretty cool.

Jamiroquai - Remember that dancing scene from Napoleon Dynamite? That's this band.

Kansas - Can't find anything else.

Lostprophets - I only know Rooftops.

Muse - Very unique, interesting sound. Pretty awesome.

Nirvana - That's all I got.

Ok Go - As mentioned before, they're pretty awesome, and not just for the treadmill video.

Police - Good old stuff.

Queens of the Stone Age - Um, yeah.

Relient K - Simply amazing, incredible live, great music, deep meaning.

Serj Tankian - System of a Down's lead singer, he has an excellent solo CD. Check out Empty Walls.

Talking Heads - I love these guys, not totally sure why.

U2 - Is there any U band in the world besides this one?

Van Halen - Nothing else for V.

Weezer - Pretty popular, but I really like some of their new stuff.

X I don't have anything for X.

Yellowcard - OMG, one of my favorite rock bands ever.

ZZ Top - Why not?

This should be fun:

 

Alcatrazz - Nothing says 80's cheese more than a Metal band (with some hair ) with a guy who can't sing and a neo-classical shredder (Yngwie Malmsteen) and the freak Steve Vai.

 

Billy Joel - this is a tough one, but I have to go with the piano man. Wrote some amazing songs (GREAT arrangements and instrumentation) and great lyricist.

Well, this should be interesting...

 

Antony and the Johnsons - one of the oddest voices I've ever heard, but there's so much emotion.

Blind Willie Johnson - a blues legend. Take a stab at "Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground"; you won't be sorry.

I did this, but can I please list some honorable mentions? After all, I can't help it that more than one band starts with the same letter! So, in the spirit of exposing some more lesser known artists...

 

A

The American Culture eXperiments--Unique mix of punk, surf, reggae, and who-knows-what-else. Very deep, powerful social/political/spiritual lyrics.

 

B

Blaster The Rocketman--Crazy "cowpunksurfabilly"/horror punk. They remind me of Dead Kennedys, although they're really not that similar.

Blenderhead--Post-punk/post-hardcore, mixed with a tiny bit of punk. They're a little like Fugazi.

 

C

Cotton Mather--Sometimes they sound exactly like the Beatles, yet they're still unique. Powerpop. One of the most amazing bands I've heard.

Calibretto 13--The quirkiest, most random band...ever? I would think so! They call their genre "dork rock". Or acoustic punk, which isn't quite as cool-sounding. The closest well-known band to them would be Violent Femmes.

 

H

Huntingtons--They started out as a Ramones cover band (spot-on, I might add). Then they did punk-pop in the style of the Ramones. Eventually, they ended up switching to the more modern, "poppy" style of pop-punk. Which is actually my favorite "era" of theirs, oddly enough. (Unlike many, I'm not at all biased against pop-punk. It's actually one of my favorite genres.)
