This is the 2nd installment of my songs you haven't heard series. For the first one, click here. Bellow are 5 more songs I highly recommend from bands and artists that are not too well known.
The first one is a collaboration between Short Stories and Gregory and the Hawk. You might have heard of GATH before. She gained a lot of popularity on myspace a while back with the song Boats and Birds. She is one of the best singers I have ever heard. "Short Stories" is the artist name of the guy who produced the song and also provides vocals. It's a beautiful song with electronic and organic sounds.
Short Stories - Ask the Dust ft. Gregory and the Hawk
In a similar style to that of the previous song we have an artist that goes by the name "The Blow". This band is a collaboration between a singer named Mikhaela and the guy behind YACHT. The have a lot of catchy songs. Again, you might have heard of these guys before if you follow internet music and blogs, but if not, you are in for a treat.
The Blow - True Affection
Changing up the genre, we have a rapper from Sweden named Promoe. I'm not sure how I discovered him but he has an excellent song called Calm Down. It has kind of a raw hip hop sound with some sampling. Good story and lyrics on this one.
Promoe - Calm Down
Start Trouble is a band that has that punk pop style. They released an album in 2004 with a bunch of catchy songs. They had the sound to make it big but apparently they never caught on with the mainstream. Here's a fun song called Non Stop
Start Trouble - Non Stop
Lastly is a punk song from a band called The Suicide Machines. The name may be intimidating, but the songs are upbeat and full of life. I was introduced to this band by a friend of mine back in the early 2000's. They have a lot of good songs on this cd and here is one of my favorites.
The Suicide Machines - Vans Song
