How have I only just come across this??

Amazing Bands and albums that I have only just discovered recently for some strange reason. In no particular order.
1Porcupine Tree
Lightbulb Sun


It was cheap and had a pretty cool album cover, so I bought it. How disappointing such an incredible album has only just found its way into my life. Incredible band for that matter.
2Rx Bandits
Mandala


Cheers to Audiotree, I came across this gem. Man these guys are about as tight as it gets. Solid stuff.
3Karnivool
Sound Awake


Told to look 'em up by a mate, and holy shit. What a masterpiece. Every song is flawless and an absolute joy to listen to.
4Mogwai
Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will


My local radio station said they're supposed to be the loudest band on earth or something. Anyways I found this album and despite a few reviews saying it's 'average', I really dig this. Clever stuff.
5The Tallest Man on Earth
Dark Bird Is Home


Well it's all over the front page of Sputnik, so I thought I'd give it a listen. I was never really one for this folk-type stuff, but Bon Iver and The Tallest Man On Earth kinda changed that.
6Between the Buried and Me
The Parallax II: Future Sequence


Ignore the ridiculous contrast between this and The Tallest Man On Earth. A friend told me to give them a listen and well, it kinda weirded me out at first but you could definitely say it grew on me. Never heard anything like it.
7Oceansize
Frames


Okay, so I guess I came across these guys a while ago, but it feels weird making a list with 'amazing albums' and not featuring Frames. One of my all time favourite albums.
8WU LYF
Go Tell Fire to the Mountain


Two dollars. It was two dollars and had an interesting name, you could say I had no idea what I was in for. You could also say I've never heard anything like it. An experience more than an album.
9Violent Soho
Hungry Ghost


One of my favourite album covers turns out to hold one of my favourite albums of recent times. First heard them at the Big Day Out festival, hell they're a fun band.
10Tides of Man
Young and Courageous


Thanks to Audiotree again... Turns out I actually do have a thing for instrumental bands. Really nice music to put it simply.
11Arcane Roots
Blood & Chemistry


As a massive Biffy Clyro fan, I was bound to stumble across these guys somewhere on the line. What an absolute riff-monster it is. Sacred Shapes is my favourite on the album, thought I'd point that out for no particular reason.
12Baptists
Bushcraft


I remember when I was like 12 and I heard thrash metal and though "how is this even music?". To be honest I don't really know but fuck, I love this
13Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds
Push The Sky Away


Don't worry, I didn't only just discover Nick Cave, but I never really listened to them until I saw 20,000 Days On Earth. This guy is a goddamn genius, very interesting and thought provoking.
14Royal Blood
Royal Blood


I guess it's new so doesn't really count, but here it is anyways. Super solid album, Probably my favourite duo since The Black Keys, or maybe The White Stripes... well it's good stuff either way.
15Von Hertzen Brothers
Nine Lives


I read about these guys in Classic Rock Magazine, thought I'd give them a listen. What a choice I made.
16Listener
Wooden Heart


Audiotree again... I've never really listened to spoken word music, but the song 'Wooden Heart' absolutely amazed me. What an intriguing and fascinating band. Glad I found it.
17CHON
Grow


These guys are just incredible players. I can't say it's really my thing, but it's just impressive to listen to.
18Emerson, Lake and Palmer
Brain Salad Surgery


My Dad's old LP's again. I had no idea this existed and I gotta say I've been digging it a lot lately, especially the drum track.
19Big Wreck
Ghosts


I heard a track of theirs a long time ago but I never sourced who it was by until now. Thornley's voice, guitar playing and the whole bands dynamics are incredible.
20Frightened Rabbit
The Winter of Mixed Drinks


I was watching an interview with Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro, and he said he was really into these guys, so I thought I'd check it out. Turns out Simon knows some good stuff, really liking this band.
