Best Kept Secrets

List is simple - rare-ish stuff that doesn't get a ton of attention on Sputnik. Not claiming I'm some kind of trailblazer and that people haven't heard this stuff, just sayin'. Links are my fav tracks.
1Meniscus
Absence of I


Best of the best aggressive post-rock with a prog twist. Drummer is wtf amazing, imagine Gospel drummer meets Danny Carey. Plus album has this crazy insect theme with samples. Check out Pilot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKl9EZhK650
2Wax on Radio
Exposition


Fantastic Indie-prog band with soaring vocals and amazing songwriting. RIP. Check out When In Rome: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIhn9Evi9bM
3French Teen Idol
Enlightened False Consciousness


Awesome ambient, great samples and striking atmosphere. Check out The Fleeting Beauty of a Butterfly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9zX1o1BIaE

What Sound


Some of the best trip-hop out there imo. Similar to Portishead if I had to compare. Female vocalist's voice is intoxicating. They have an amazing discography, but check out Gabriel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cHBSUP9T5w
5Bark Psychosis
Codename: Dustsucker


Bark is pretty well known, but their curtain call doesn't get nearly enough love. The first half of the album is flawless - imagine Laughing Stock meets Mezzanine. Check out Black Meat: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGFsdJ2OtCY
