If you didn’t know…I like music. I was just perusing some old music and it made me want to write a blog about some very underrated music (at least underrated in these here parts). My wife, LaRae, always calls me a music elitist, which I guess is true, but I just like well written sustainable music. I like all different kinds of music from folky to hip hop, and almost everything between that (still waiting for some folky hip hop tho). So I made a little list to brag on some good stuff. Everyone I write about here I would highly recommend to anyone, whatever your musical taste. And the reason I am writing about them is because I think they should be substantially more popular than they currently are.
Paper Route. I continually mention this band, because they are just all around solid. If you like the current trend of music (electronic-y), but also like indy band stuff, Paper Route will become your favorite band. For real. For example just listen to the track below, and after I will bet 9 people out of 10 will think ‘how are they not more popular?!’ and…Go.
This Will Destroy You. This is an instrumental rock band. There are probably a lot of these bands, but I think 3 stand alone- ‘Explosions in the Sky,’ ‘Hammock,’ and this band. Their first album is ‘louder’ – with the use of amps pushed to the limit, and it was great, but their newest album is one where you can score a movie with it, or put it in the background of your day. Take a gander…
I just wanted to point out some great music for y’all to jump into. Give it a listen and let me know what you think! Thanks for reading.
