ONE recommendation for Spotify

There's been a couple of threads recently with people giving recommendations for new artists and bands and as I've just installed Spotify Open to check some of them out I thought I'd open a thread whereby people can nominate ONE band/artist that they really think people should check out. Ideally it be something not so well known (so popular combos such as Kasabian or so forth would be a bit of a waste) and you've got ONE nomination, ONE*, so make it count! To make it interesting, don't say anything about what type of music it is, let people discover it without prejudice. You can recommend a good starting album if you want to. I'll start: I'd would go for Medeski, Martin and Wood, probably, to start with Uninvisible or End of the World Party (Just In Case), or the best of, Note Bleu. Your turn. *Yes I know, following the Awards nomination thread there's very little chance of people sticking to that but...

Possibly too well known in Hi-Fi circles for this but as they are largely ignored in popular culture I will give them my recommendation:-

Blue Nile - Any album, any track.

Top Scandinavian progressive rock band Anekdoten. Chapters is their best of and a good place to start.

PS Medeski, Martin & Wood are superb

James Luther Dickinson - Dixie Fried

I was reminded of this album via the shuffle setting on the iPod on the drive to work this morning. I'm not sure they make 'em like this any more.

Howl Griff - though their new album isn't on Spotify yet. One of their band members used to work on WHF.....and now sits mere metres away on FourFourTwo

Not sure if they're on Spotify as we haven't signed up to it yet, but check out Elysian Fields, particularly their Bleed Your Cedar album.

Just listened to her- very nice indeed :)

One of my demo discs


I'll have to see if I can get Frank to pay for Spotify Premium so I can get together a list of the stuff we use for demo, and our own personal stuff - I have mentioned some of them on our blog, but Spotify would be better for most. Frank will have to do without one more ivory backsctratcher, but hey....
