@Lash,
I always loved Coin Operated Boy, but never explored the album - didn't really get into Amanda until she went solo (not that her solo work sounds any different to the Dresden Dolls).

This is still my favourite song of hers:

Well, a bit embarrassed. Never heard of Rasputina and they've been around 20 years. And I love cello.

Anyway in case you've never heard of them

Finnish alternative folk rock (that's the genre I've assigned to it anyway.

Tyrolean tongue singers. I challenge you to watch the clip without smiling.

@izzythepush,
Green by Bumblefoot off "Abnormal", the melody line in the chorus is heartfelt and catchy.

@francocig,
Not bad for baroque emo (I specialise in inventing genres ;-)

Never dented the charts here, but I this is pretty cool in a chill hip sway sort of way.

Wow. I was looking for Andy Prieboy's "Tomorrow Wendy' link in youtube, and this played straight after and I'd never heard it before. Got a lot of love for his voice.
I don't think this would be out of place on Edgar's 'Music touching religious and irreligious' thread

Cataloguing my random downloads and found this. Was slightly amazed to find out this was Australian, and from 1986. Screw you gatekeepers, I never heard of them. They formed in 1986, released a 6 track mini album, and folded in 1989.

Found this in my downloads - pretty cool if you like late night jazz.

I'm listening to all the tracks I've rated four stars and finding stuff I'd completely forgotten about. Øystein Sevåg is a Norwegian composer with a blend of modern classical, jazz, world and new age that is a bit more inventive than say what you'd find on the Narada label - and more leftfield than Windham Hill.

@hingehead,
Here's an obscure one for you. This is a fake band from a computer game, but the music is real enough.

Sort of Tangeriney Dreamey. A nice long slow build up in this track by Carbon Based Lifeforms, a "Downtempo / ambient / acid electronic project based in Göteborg, Sweden, formed in 1996, as an offshoot from other projects. Both members were born in 1976 and they met at age 15."

Something a little different (for me) from Dave A Stewart and Thomas Lindsey. Very cool.

So an author on Twitter I follow was asking swede's whether red hair was common in Sweden given the blonde stereotyp.

One guy answered 'jag vet inte' which of course I had to look up - it means 'I don't know' but I also found this strange, but groovy, big beat number from 2020.
