What the hell, another list thread.
What are some bands you think deserve recognition, but nobody else seems to know about? Here are a few of my favorites. \
Grant Lee Philips - Probably the most underappreciated guy I can think of.
Sky Cries Mary - great trippy Seattle band that dosen't sound like a Seattle band!
Juno - I just got turned onto these guys recentely. I don't know about their first cd, but A Future Lived Past Tense is fantastic.
Cat Power - I love her stuff, but I'm always hesitant to recommend her since people sem to either love her or hate her.
Lycia - My all time favorite ambient/mood band.
