I was listening to Brandtson's Send Us a Signal last night, and it got me thinking about albums that are so good and yet most people probably don't own them or even know about them. Ummm ... and if that's not a good catalyst for a top 10 list, I don't know what is. So here are the top 10 albums that I think go unnoticed and you should check out. As always, there are obviously hundreds of others that could be included -- but these are the ones that I felt like sharing. Feel free to add any to the replies that you think people should check out. I linked all of them to their streaming versions on Rdio, so now you have no excuse to not check them out. Oh, and this isn't really in any order besides when I thought of the album to include.
1. Chad Perrone - Wake (All of his albums could be included here but this is his best imo.)
2. The Reign of Kindo - This is What Happens
3. City Sleeps - Hotel
4. Jenny Owen Youngs - An Unwavering Band of Light
5. Fightstar - Grand Unification (A decent amount of people know who Fightstar (or at least Charlie Simpson) are, but considering how brilliant this album is, there should be a lot more)
Brandtson were such a good band (They're 2 EPs were great not to mention the awesome Hello, Control album), I feel like most of the Deep Elm roster could fit in here, so many good bands on that label & so many went/go unheard of.
Anyways I'd say the following albums definitley fall under this & are classics in my old punk jaded eyes
