Default Good Songs by Non-famous Bands

Please post and discuss, if you wish, songs you like by non-famous bands or musicians, any genre (classical, punk, etc.).

Every once in a while I find a song by a band that doesn't seem well-known, and I think, "Hey, that's a pretty good song! Why aren't more people listening to it?"

What is non-famous? Good question. Use your own judgment, but if I find a musician where her or his YouTube video has fewer than 1000 hits, and no wikipedia entry, I conclude "Not famous."

Here's an example of a song I like by a non-famous musician:

A Brokeheart Pro (Jeannette Kantzalis) - "Bleed On"
I was listening through Jeannette Kantzalis' songs, most of which are light and wispy, and none made an impression on me until I listened to this one. I thought, hey, that's pretty good! It has attitude and pep, but only 470 YouTube views. Then I thought of all the songs I've heard but don't like that have 13,000,000 views, and that irked me. So here you go, Jeannette Kantzalis, whoever and wherever you are, I like your song, and especially these lines: "I'm pretty sharp, so I'll cut to the quick."

I like this. We really don't have many venues for the discussion of largely unknown entities. It's free promotion without being excessively so.

I found this through stumbleupon labeled as Techno/Trance-like song on acoustic guitar. He's very clever, although I realize he's got a butt-load of hits (he basically got to meme status, it's been put through Stumbleupon...)

This is a great thread idea, but I'm glad the idea of non-famous is open-ended. Even one of my regular customers at my work that dropped me a very good demo has 11,000 hits on his one youtube appearance...

So I'm going to post it anyway. I thought it was very insightful and well done for local dudes:

Clara Klein's "Got Me" is really catchy with clever lyrics plus interesting instrumentals (an accordian sound and piano with dissonance). Her voice is lovely, so silky, warm and light. I liked that song very much. I could find no YouTube video of it, unfortunately.

What the heck is this singer doing, not making more songs than these two??? "Got Me" definitely got me. The music sounds like "ice cream and marshmallows," just like she wrote about it on her MySpace, but I'd add "with a dash of hot pepper or bittersweet chocolate." I listened three times to "Got Me." "Madman" was too quiet and mellow, in my opinion, but it seems to have attracted more attention.

Ewan Dobson's guitar piece is terrific. I didn't realize how lush the sound from a single acoustic guitar could be. I'd call him "famous-ish," though, because he has his own Wikipedia page! Ewan Dobson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

P.S. Lucifer, I'm glad you like the thread idea.

Kaizers Orchestra - Hjerteknuser [HQ] - YouTube

Maybe not a good representation of their sound, but magnificent nonetheless.

Yeah, I prefer that one myself. She goes to school with my brother which is the only reason I know of her. I think she has more stuff, but I have no idea where to find it.

Please tell your brother to tell Clara Klein to put more of her music up on her MySpace and make a YouTube video of "Got Me"! Her fans are waiting. I'd also like to know who was playing the instruments. I couldn't find that information.

Clara Klein is a really cool name, BTW. If it's a pseudonym, it's a good one. If it's her real name, she's lucky!
