Undiscovered Bands

It doesn’t happen often. But every now and again, by pure accident, I’ll stumble onto some obscure band that kicks ass. Rock music is such a niche genre these days and I feel like the best stuff is wallowing in obscure local scenes. Post your own discoveries here and tell us why these unheralded rock bands deserve a listen.

I’ll start. It occurred to me today that “The Jobbers” would be a good band name. For those who don’t follow wrestling, that’s a term for the lame wrestlers whose whole job is to lose to the better, more popular stars. So I searched to see if anyone beat me to the punch and indeed, there’s a band out of Brooklyn that goes by “Jobber.” And they fucking rock. Here’s a sample off of their first EP released this past fall:

It kind of reminds me of Liz Phair, with the vocals, guitars, and unorthodox song structure. Anyway, I’m hooked and I hope they release more stuff. 

Now it’s your turn.

Shit…just about all the bands that were on my record label in the early 2000s. We dropped the website years ago, but my partner made a Bandcamp and most of the releases can be heard there. Some of them I recorded and mixed. My favorites are the Hognose albums as well as SuperHeavyGoatAss and Players Club.

The band out of the broader scene I grew up in that I always loved the most was Ethan Durelle. Mostly a Waco band, which might be part of why they.... loomed large to me and had a great crowd but never seemed to break out anywhere
