    This kind of crap is one of the reasons the ionternet should not be left up to individuals, before the WWW we would have been protected from this dross and these people would sink without trace.

    Not so much a new artists but new to me is the fabulous Porcupine Tree.
    This is a band that passed me by completely. They'd been recommended to me on several occasions on here and other places which I dismissed as not my cuppa T.
    The beauty about PT for me is discovering their extensive back catalogue and front man Steve Wilson's other projects like Bass Comunion, Blackfield and No-Man, then theres his own solo efforts. I've never known such a prolific musician and song writter with such quality.
    The most underated band and musician in Britain IMO.

    I think you really do have to be into "trees, Mellow Candle, Sandy Denny, Gryphon, Amazing Blondell" type of Psyche folk to get on with this band, which I am.

    Incidently from what I heard from your link I prefer their first album which is folkier than the samples on the site.

    Suckatash, an Adelaide band, they only have a 32 minute CD. Musically its a bit of South australian rap fused with Jazz funk.

    Heads up here if you are into the female voice. No album as yet but give this a listen and be blown away. Stunning methinks.

    Bands and albums that have passed me by in 2010 but will soon be ordered (been too busy comparing PT with PF).

    The Black Keys - Brothers

    Foals - Total Life Forever

    The National - High Violet

    The Dead Weather - Sea of Cowards (I have their debut and this is supposedly better)

    Arcade Fire - The Suburbs (maybe)

    Take That - Progress (no, I jest)

    Any other rrrrrrrrrrrrecommendations?

    One recent discovery for me, scandanavian female artist called Karin Driejer Andersson has put out an album calling herself and the album - Fever Ray, it's quite dark but very interesting.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3XkZ...eature=related

    Worthwhile checking her out, most of the album is on youtube.

    As soon as I heard that voice knew straight away I'd heard it before somewhere, very unmistakable.
    After checking the album cover notes she does indeed feature on Royksopp's "The Understanding" album on the track What Else Is There?. Great track, great voice.




    Trentemoller also does a stonking version of this on his "The Chronicals" covers album



    I'll certainly be checking her out....thanks.

    here's a female singer which given the right songs could go far, I like her album "East of Eden" but this track is by far the best in my opinion

    Glad you like her material Royksoff, her and her brother usually gig under the name "The Knife" i've got three of their albums which you should definately check out if Fever Ray appeals to you.

    Thanks for the Roysopp link, i like what im hearing.

    Karin has released a track for some new and wierd TV series called little red riding hood aparently, am about to check it out.

    Just recently ordered Fever Ray (i've got a copy) and the new single on vinyl, cant wait and it's cheaper than the cd which is just braw eh.

    Link to site/store etc - http://feverray.com/

    Cheers
