Bored On Sunday: Under-Appreciated Bands

Posted by - 02:30 PM on 01/29/12
We all listen to and love many bands that don't get much attention from the general population, and I think it would be a fair assumption to say that our love for said bands is what often brings us together on music sites such as this. There are many bands I could list off of the top of my head that make me wonder, "How is this band not more popular?" whenever I listen to their music, but there are a few who really stand out. For me, one of those bands would be the Winterpills, and you could say that their Kickstarter campaign is what has inspired this post. This is a band that I have followed for the past seven years, and I have yet to see them achieve the success that they deserve despite being one of the best indie-pop and folk bands out there. Coincidentally, I just finished watching the movie Moneyball (which was awesome by the way), and its theme ties in nicely with the point of this post: many people and projects are often overlooked despite having great talents. So I guess I just want this Sunday's discussion to be about all of these under-appreciated bands we love that deserve a bit more love and attention. What are some that you have been following for years and would love for people to check out? Let's discuss and listen to some awesome music.

Cut Teeth. They're brand spankin' but I see big things for this band. At least, that's what they deserve.

This band is boring.

Good thread idea though!

Empire, Empire! I was a lonely estate.

I hate how everyone who hasn't read the book Moneyball has no clue what the thing is actually about.
Anyways, very curious to see what people mention here.

He isn't unappreciated at the AV Club!

Edit: It's a band, not a guy. Oops.

I'm gonna say The OneUps. They play funky and jazzy arrangements of video game music. It's a shame most people won't check them out. They're fucking amazing live too.

Their last album was still overlooked by a lot of music fans.

But seriously I agree with the guy who said The Downtown Fiction. Also, people need to check out Night Verses (formerly The Sound Archives and Archives.) Fucking KILLER band.
