[Civil Twilight - Letters From The Sky](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Wa7dFR09vU). Normally don't click random youtube videos shared on FB, but a musically-inclined friend posted this one, I listened... and immediately bought it. Just love the way it builds. (Upon clicking it again, honestly surprised it's up to 5mil views now -- I saw it when it was in the thousands. I never hear it on the radio or anything.)
[Wrabel - 11 Blocks](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbBobU_gZVA). This was introduced to me via a local radio station when it was released, but I haven't really heard it more than a handful of times since. I think it's pretty adorable, maybe not 'amazing,' but catchy enough that it should be bigger than it is.
These guys are incredible. They have 3 albums written about a young Frenchman in the first world war who falls in love with a prostitute, which contain some of the most balls out rock songs, as well as some of the sweetest and softest crooning, I've ever heard. Also a 36 song album with 4 songs based off of each color in the color spectrum (conveniently called The Color Spectrum), with genres spanning from industrial hard rock, to pop rock Beatles-esque flair, to the band's own unique sense of progressive indie rock. They also recently released an album called Migrant, which is a standard album of stand alone songs, however don't be deceived by the simplicity. The album is rich with excellent melodies, impressive guitar work, beautiful, visual, and visceral lyrics, and what I consider to be the pièce de résistance of all their music, the voice of lead singer/songwriter Casey Crescenzo. Seriously, the guy has this incredible and powerful voice, which can blow your ear drums out in angst, or sing you softly to sleep with some of the smoothest, most soothing and delicate vocals you've ever heard. This band is incredible and hardly gets the recognition they deserve. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND LISTEN! YOU WILL FIND SOMETHING YOU LOVE I PROMISE!
Also, sidenote, the mastermind behind the whole thing, Casey Crescenzo, happens to be a redditor. /u/caseycrescenzo , this one is for you and your incredible art!
[Passionflower - Jon Gomm](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nY7GnAq6Znw)
One of my favorite songs. Does things with a guitar which I've seen almost no-one else even try.
[Sunset - The Midnight](https://youtu.be/w2D4iCzRW7E) In the world of Synthwave/Retrowave, The Midnight isn’t one of the most popular or well known, but it’s damn-fine music. If you like this, I recommend checking out the rest of this album and if you like the whole album, definitely check out GUNSHIP. They’re easily one of my favorite bands right now.
[Hot Women, Cold Beer](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWDt-tqQshs) by Goober & the Peas.
Goober were a cow-punk band from Detroit in the late 80s/early 90s. They had a couple albums and a brief run of fame. Michael Stipe of the REM was alleged to have "discovered" them.
Like Spinal Tap, the band went through a series of drummers. None of them blew up, but one - a guy named Jack White - went on to some success.
If you ever get the chance to see Goober & the Peas live, I highly recommend it.
Obsessing with "Sleeping on the Blacktop" by Colter Wall
It's a cover, but Sleeping At Last's rendition of "Make You Feel My Love"
Also wanted to add Steam Powered Giraffe's "Honeybee", though I'm not sure how well known they are. Either way, enjoy?
Brother my Brother by Blessed Union of Souls
Otherwise known as that song that plays in "Pokemon the first movie" when Ash is turned to stone and everyone's tears bring him back. No one I know can keep from crying when seeing this scene and a big part of that is the song.
I wonder how many people are going to link there own Soundcloud profiles here
Brazil ~ Declan McKenna (or basically just any of his songs they’re all amazing)
Wasted ~ Freia
Somebody Better ~ Black Honey (and just all of their songs too, they kinda remind me of an indie Paramore for some reason)
[Lee Moses - Bad Girl](https://youtu.be/3lxp7WVXiXU). Everyone's slightly out of tune, but damn if this is not what real soul music is about.

[Sweet Talk](https://youtu.be/9W6bAAgUgW8) by *Dear and The Headlights* is neat.
[An Introduction To The Album - The Hotelier](https://youtu.be/PHsBgcwOw6Y) This whole album is phenomenal, but this song gets me every time.
["I Hate Everyone"](https://youtu.be/Y626eTivs60) by Get Set Go
Tom Grennan - Found What I've Been Looking For
His voice is so unique and good. I really love his songs, they are catchy as hell.

[the donkeys - ride the black wave](https://youtu.be/YHDK4S4j9BM)
They're steadily gaining a lot of attention in my country but I want you guys to give em a listen too: [Hey Barbara by IV OF SPADES](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0n-we66ZHqc)
Make sure to check their other stuff out too!
Wide Open Space by Mansun. Some UK redditors might know them but as far as I know they never got big in North America.
Night Terrors Of 1927 - Fall Into You
"Stop Motion" by Stephanie Mabey
Came out just last week and really resonated with me. Really all of her work is great and unique!
[transylvania stud - the red queen](https://youtu.be/3vAahF8h3Q4)
Love So Alike by Anne Dudley.
How unknown counts, and to who? This guy got into a Rock Band game so I dunno but here. (A lot of his stuff counts.) [Richard Thompson - If Love Whispers Your Name](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTmAseJHs-c)
Different style entirely but [DispersE - Message From Atlantis](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RagW200RFYA) as well.
If you’re into that 80’s style sound that Stranger Things seemed to have made popular, check out the band Gunship. Their videos are fantastic as well. Here are two of my favorite songs and videos.
