I really like Lissie, but her album could've been so much better. The Why You Runnin' EP is amazing 'though.


People should listen to Laura Marling more. She is absolutely amazing. The lyrics are beautiful.

I don't know if he's famous in other countries, but I'm a huge John Grant fan.

I want to like Laura Marling's stuff. I like her voice a lot but to me the songs I've heard are so melancholic.

Yes they are. There are a few exceptions (try All My Rage), but don't expect any happy music from her.

Yeah. It doesn't have to be happy music. There are lots of serious but dang to me . . . the melodies she's singing are some real downers melodically. And that's after a few bars. :lol: Still I'm glad that she has many appreciative fans.

Yeah I agree about that. Her music isn't about the melody, but that's a common trait in singer/songwriter folk.

Hmm . . I dunno. I like folk because it is often about the vocal melody. Even though the melody is often simple. Marling just has melodies that are downers to me. Anyway moving on . .

Andrea Corr. I went searching for acoustic versions and found out she was lead vocalist of the Corrs. :yeah:

Were very popular in several countries in black Africa, after band leader passed away in 1989, the band has disbanded over artistic differences on the future of the band.
The music is being re-discovered by younger crowd, introduced to it by parents or older siblings.

Some posters from Belgium or France may have heard of the band Le TP OK Jazz.
The founder name is François Luambo Luanzo Makiadi , aka Franco; the band was based in Kinshasa, capital of Democratic Republic of Congo, former Belgium colony.


Perfect marriage of voices, wind instruments and guitars.


Don't be shy, think out of the box, try listening to them, you won't be disappointed.

No gimmicks, no acts. Just music.

This isn't "not-so-famous" as much as it's "someone kids these days haven't heard of." Masterpiece of a song anyway.

Maybe she isn't particularly famous here then. I knew she sang on Paradise By The Dashboard Light but I didn't know anything of her solo stuff until my dad let me listen to the vinyl of Night Out. Maybe its just me :p

Didn't expect to see Andrea here, I consider her rather famous around the world, even though I don't love her ( I was a Sharon fan). The Asian tours of The Corrs were successful IIRC.

From the last few months I'm in love with La Femme Nikita series featured songs such as:

=> Craig Armstrong feat Liz Fraser - This Love
=> Gus Gus - Is Jesus your Pal
=> This Strange effect - Hooverphonic

There are many more in that Soundtrack, including Enigma's Beyond The Invisible number. That album is highly recommended, IMO :)
