I’m aware that’s a pretty long title, but it’s so damn true. I wouldn’t have to do something like this if sites like Pitchfork and Stereogum gave some attention to small time artists. Sure, there are cases where those sites have made artists get more likes and shares, but are those artists/bands really worth our time? You be the judge.
These all are records that I’ve listened to in the past year, so bear with me.
Doesn’t mean they’re all extremely new though. So…here we go.
(I’ll add some links to help out)

2.- Newhampshiretrees // Teeth (noise/experimental)
3.- Ashbringer // Vacant (atmospheric black metal/folk metal)
4.- Clouds Collide // All Things Shining (post-metal/blackgaze)
5.- Audrey Fall // Mitau (cinematic post-metal)

I will be updating this list eventually, I promise. Enough to enjoy for a while, right?!
