Bands That Sputnik Has Either Introduced Me To Or Helped Me Get Into (ranked)

Cheers Sputnik

Again I knew this band a little, in the same way as everyone else (Mass Effect) and couldn't stop listening to M4 pt.2 (on repeat none stop for about two weeks) then after reading a few reviews went and downloaded the ep, then High Expectations/low results. Love their chilled out vibe on some tracks-makes you go into a trance-but I listen to them more for those "heavy" moments when you stop and think, that was just splendid.
7The Swell Season

Knew a bit about these guys, mainly Hansard through the film Once, and loved all the music I had heard. Checked them out on Sputnik, just trying to match a name with a face, then downloaded the Once album. Emotional songwriting at it's best, every song is sick and memorable.
6RX Bandits

Only discovered these a few days ago, had never heard of them before, was excited by the reviews stating that they were ska/prog and checked them out on itunes. Bought the album there and then, been listening to it ever since-none stop. Fantastic singer, very catchy guitar lines and awesome drumming.
5King Crimson

Knew nothing about them, other than the infamous album cover of In The Court Of The Crimson King which I think everyone has seen in HMV at one point or another. Then I started using Sputnik to find new music, before I became a member, found a review that matched up with that sick cover, liked what I read and bought the album soon after. They were way ahead of their time and take a special place up in my Prog rock collection.
4Twelve Foot Ninja

A very knew find for me. The aussie's are incredible in all aspects of the word; multiple genres in each song, which is what the bests bands do, heavy fucking guitars, interesting lyrics and just a great overall vibe. Another brand new favourite.
3At The Drive-In

I have a vague memory of hearing One Armed Scissor back in the day but other than that, I have to admit I knew nothing about them before I got into The Mars Volta and checked out a few of the reviews about Relationship Of Command and In/Casino/Out. Fucking love this band; more energy than most punk bands with better musicianship and the same odd lyrics which Cedric is now known for.

Knew a bit about Les and the guys through the Rush classic albums dvd where they are mentioned as being one of the bands highly influenced by Rush. Went out and bought Antipop, fell in the love with the bass playing and quirky side to the band, and rate them as one of my favourites.
1The Mars Volta

One of my favourite bands of all time; I heard Televators back when it came out and loved it, but for one reason or another never got into the band. Then after seeing the cover to De-Loused in the Comatorium, went out and bought the album, I haven't looked back since.
