Recommendations That Have Worked

Here's some bands that I got recommended that have turned out really well.
1Cap'n Jazz

This is simply fantastic music. Huge energy, diverse sound, unique vocalist that can make not being able to sing so damn this stuff.

John recommended this band to me, and I'm pretty impressed thus far. Really enjoy the tracks where the band mix it up with different kinds of instruments like mandolin or violin.

Haven't listened to her in ages, but getting back into her music has been great. She's definitely an underrated artist.
4Randy Newman

Disc by disc I'm getting "Guilty: Thirty Years of Randy Newman". What a great songwriter this guy is. There's certainly more to him than "You Got A Friend In Me", as I first thought as a kid.
5Leonard Cohen

Unbelievable songwriting ability. I can't believe I've gone this long without experiencing his music. I can certainly see where Nick Cave has gotten a lot of influence now.
6Portraits of Past

Holy shit. This band pretty much scared the hell out of me on first listen. Had NO idea what was going on. I really dig it now, though, especially those nightmare-inducing vocals.
7Rufus Wainwright

Very rarely have I experienced a voice more beautiful.

Fantastically executed black metal. A real treat to listen to.

Long time spoken of and worshipped amongst my peers at school, but I had never really listened to them up until this point. Just got Blaze and also Duh, which I think are really solid listens.

Again, a lot more to them than their best known song ("Alright"). In It For The Money is a solid release, and I'm slowly working through the rest of their discography as well.
