Death Cab For Cutie- Transatlantisism (the song) maybe it's not the greatest, but I'm listening too it now, and it's one of my favorite songs, so I put it up here. You should at least consider it.

These albums are the shit, everyone should hear them.

Some others I'd add right now are:

Portishead - Dummy
Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral
Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
Sonic Youth - Murray Street

Like someone said though, there are millions of others I could think of. For whatever reason these are just the ones I thought of right now.

I'm sorry if DCFC is not obscure enough for your ultra-hip indie taste. You know, it doesn't have to be a band no one has ever heard of to be really good.

well, barring what smashingjj said, all I found was Victor Wooten, Pink Floyd, and some other band I've never heard of. I haven't listened to Wooten and I got nothing against Pink Floyd, but really you seem to strut what you LIKE a lot less than what you DISLIKE.

that said, even though all I talk about here is "new wave indie crap," that doesn't mean I don't like other stuff. it just isn't as relevant because it's not new. I just like to talk about new stuff.

I mean, it's Netphoria

instead of LZ2, I suggest getting their live album they released a year ago. I found it an excellent introduction, because barring a couple of their latter-day hits (specifically Kashmir and Achilles Last Stand), it has everything one should know by them, and their live sound is so much more intense from their studio sound. the album is called How the West Was Won. It's a 3 disc trip but it's well worth it.

I hate his vocals. What do you like about his music? And do you prefer The birthday party, bad seeds or the solo stuff? I think it's just not my cup of tea.

Nick Cave's compositional skills are amazing, and a lot of his lyrics are pretty incredible. I don't listen to him much, but when I do I always enjoy it. And he puts on a fucking awesome live show if you ever get the chance to go.
