Of course. Which is why it's such a pleasant surprise to hear the original.

Ah!

Doesn't sound that much different does it? :lol:

I loved all the rock n roll and doo wop revival stuff in the late 70s Darts, Rocky Sharpe and the Replays etc so I started looking up stuff like that a few years back.

You tube is such a great resource for that sort of thing. There is even footage of people like Leadbelly for goodness sake.

Like Martha, Garnett Mimms. For me, a great new discovery.

I've heard the Broken Bells album before... but I've now really taken to them with The Ghost Inside

Glad you like it! I like it a lot. But I'm increasingly of the opinion that James Mercer is a genuine genius - and the best songwriter of the last 10 years... Hence two efforts from him in my list :)

I'm not a big lyrics fan really, but his words for the Shins blow me away - they're fantastic as a rule.

Isn't that rather giving the game away as no one else has chosen such toss in their lists?

It's funny that list has turned out to be your brothers as I thought it was yours initially!

Take another look...

No Manics, no token rappers, no tedious '60s girl groups... :)

I've always overlooked this group, but this is a pretty great track.

Rachel Unthank & The Winterset.
I see on Wiki they/she are now called The Unthanks. I'd like to explore them more

A great group, although I find a whole album pretty unrelenting.

I'd never heard this band before, either. I like it. Are their records worth investigating?




Is anybody else still discovering things?!

I doubt it CG! Quite a number stopped voting weeks ago and I get the impression many of those who are still voting just nip in here quickly and then get out again! It feels quite lonely still being left in the competition. :)
But good on you for still checking things out. This track was something I didn't take much notice of for the first few rounds of its appearance, but I'm realising what a really good track it is.
