Would also like to add Douglas Dare to the list of criminally underrated artists.
David Thomas Broughton
Toro Y Moi
Ian William Craig
^^ some of those are probably indie
Just remembered that “I’ve been sleeping in a stable, mate” line.
Daniel Rossen, if/when he gets round to releasing anything else
Probably should’ve stated that by contemporary i mean more ones that have broken through in the last couple years
Ummmm, ever heard of this guy called Mac DeMarco?
Welcome to the boards!
No I haven’t
Ezra Furman is (was?) gender fluid. Doesn’t count.
oh yeh, Devon Welsh
Not that new but the last Chad Vangaalen album from last year seemed to be ignored and was really good.
Also A. Savage
Does Richard Dawson count?
No sir. As above, I meant people on their first album or who have otherwise broken through recently (so you could argue Julia Holter shouldn’t be on my list. Gwenno should’ve though)
50/50 on including Ian William Craig. He’s great but dunno if he fits the criteria
