Ought. Last time I saw them, the venue was half empty.
I find the lack of mainstream attention given to Camera Obscura utterly baffling. It is classic pop that wouldn’t be out of place on Radio 2!
Archers of Loaf. Never going to be a mainstream hit but I don’t get why they’re so far down the list compared to other messy, fuzzy 90s indie bands. They had Proper Catchy Singles, shout along choruses, weird experiments, a few lovely sweeter quiet songs etc etc
Built to Spill
Lone Wolf/Paul Marshall
Liz Phair (She deserves to be universally celebrated like Pavement)
We Are King
Good shout. They’ve neither gained a mainstream audience or widespread critical acclaim, even though they’re ace.
I live in Sweden, and nobody here likes them either!
I was going to say Baroness, but then I checked and saw that they’re headlining Brixton on this current run so perhaps they’re finally getting the credit they deserve. I still feel like they’re a band a lot of people would love but simply haven’t been exposed to. The weird production choices on the latest album won’t have done them any favours though. Was very happy to hear their session for Daniel P. Carter last week; those songs sound even better when you can actually hear the instruments properly
Do Me Bad Things.
They are one of the only bands to emerge from the early 2000’s glut of “stoner rock” in decent shape
Who else would you put in that bucket? I guess Mastodon, although I still love them, but who else?
Her Name is Calla.
I would have thought we’d all be mad for them on here as they tick almost every box for a ‘typical cherished DiS band’ but it all gets a bit tumbleweed.gif when they’re mentioned.
