Obscure albums you rate highly…
What is “obscure”? Stuff that’s not played on the radio?
I’ve heard of Biosphere, so that’s not particularly obscure.
Sorry, but its a word that bugs me about music these days!Posted 4 years ago
Go on Bandcamp.com – how many artists have you heard of on there? Are they all “obscure”?
Then you get people calling you pretentious for like ‘obscure’ music!
I don’t even know what it is! ARGH. I’ve disappeared up my own arse again.
ps. I like the new Octa Push album.
Ok, it’s not the word ‘obscure’, but the concept. There is SO MUCH music out there, mainstream (I’m guessing radio airplay stuff?) is a such teeny tiny portion of it.
I get the Juno Records weekly mailouts and have only heard of about 10 artists out of all the weekly releases.
Another answer – Paul White – March of the Ants

Which radio station ? If you mean 6 music, then it’s listener figures suggest it’s still pretty small when you put it next to, say Radio 2 (not trying to pick a fight there DezB). 🙂
Kind of surprised people have heard of him, although he has got bigger over the past couple of years.
My mum won’t have a clue who he is, if we’re using that as a sort of sliding scale for obscure.Posted 4 years ago

I had amon’s first album when it was released . He was fairly obscure then. Excellent choice by the way.
Maybe he’s half obscure.
And all your picks of 2013 are obscure to me. Mind you that might be because I’m getting old and don’t know what’s cool any more. Not that I ever knew what was cool in the first place…Posted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
It’s All Done By Mirrors, by The Astronauts.
Unclassifiable genius, but here goes nothing…..
The wonderful sense of freedom of the free festival movement meets the harsh reality of establishment hatred filtered through paranoia and the easy availability of hard drugs.
Reminds me of dozing in fields to the sound of old diesel engines.
Hope you’re ok Mark.
