Default The best band you've never heard of

There's an awesome band out there making incredible music that you've probably never heard of. The band is Pinback, and you really should go listen to some of their music right now. The music they make usually has this really chill vibe, very melodic, but sometimes with kind of upsetting or spooky undertones. The songs are all very layered and complex, with subtle nuances blended in to create unique masterpieces.

I'm not sure if they are a band you have to listen to several times to get into, or if it's more of an instant appeal. I find a lot of music takes some time to appreciate. And I've seen other threads like this where some band is mentioned and I go check them out and I'm underwhelmed. That may happen with you here. I'm sure not everyone will be into it, but once you give them a chance, I'm sure several of you will be. Then I will feel like I've made a contribution to the world by spreading this magic!

So get tipsy to the point that you are feeling really good and chill, turn down the lights, get comfortable, and listen to this band. I'm sure at least some of you will find that you've discovered a new favorite band.

A few to get you started.





You can pretty much click on any of their songs though since they are all good.

Pinback's music has the unique ability to penetrate through all the BS and tap straight into your consciousness.

I'm diggin it actually. I tend to be more into jam band type stuff (Phish, the Dead etc.), so this isn't too much of a stretch. They remind me of this band that my old roommate's cousin was in, Soapbox Paradox.

Yeah, really cool stuff.

I can't figure out how to imbed youtube stuff, but here's some links for soapbox paradox.




Never mind, It worked. Cool!

I really like Soapbox Paradox's sound. They are a little more upbeat and "beachy" than Pinback but really good. Kind of remind me of some mix of the offspring, smile empty soul, sublime, 311 and someone else I can't think of right now.

Check out Lotus if you've never heard of them before.

Now that I'm at home I'm actually getting a chance to listen to the linked songs. Interesting stuff. There's a lot to like here! Good call everyone!
