Thought this thread might be a good way to discover new music.

Basically, all you do is recomend one single track that not a lot of people have heard of, followed by a brief description in which you try and sell it to everyone. That way you can go out and find it if you like the sound of it. It would also be good to post a bit of feedback regarding each other choices too.

Just stick to one track per post please.

Good idea...

I will go for Destiny by Zero 7, an instrumental version of this is used on several TV shows.

It's from the album 'Simple things' which is a superb chill out album:

I quite liked that Zero 7 track. Was very soothing. It sounds like something I've heard before, but I couldn't quite place it.

Okay, my recomendation:

Shea Seger 'Clutch'. Female singer song-writer. Don't think she did too well over here. You can watch the video here.

An instrumental version is used as incidental music on Property Ladder

The Guide by Borne. It was Single Of The Week on iTunes a few weeks ago - very very good song. I'm thinking about buying their album when it comes out.

Comin On Strong by Broken English.

The best song that the Rolling Stones never recorded.

Just Because I'm a Woman - Dolly Parton

Everytime I bring it up, no one seems to have heard of it before - even her fans! Any one here know about it?

Awesome song!

Hmm...difficult, but I would strongly suggest 'Surfboard' by Sergio Mendes and Will i Am...absolutely brilliant.

Tis an album track of course, so there's a reason nobody's heard of it...

Emily Kane by Art Brut.

A lovely, funny song, which more people should have heard. But I think that about most of their songs.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfZF6kfVA2k

Reached the heady heights of number 41 in May 2005.

"Chicago" by Sufjan Stevens.

The whole "Illinoise" album by Sufjan Stevens is outstanding and one of the best albums in recent years. Some of the most glorious folk-pop you will ever hear. Ever.

Agreed ....I love their sense of humour...and I love that Eddie can't sing at all but still manages to pull it off somehow .

Agreed again . Sufjan is a brilliant musician and singer-songwriter, one of the best around imo....even when he's doing Christmas songs. 'Sister Winter' was one of my favourite songs of last year. Xmas songs aren't supposed to be that good! .

There are loads I can think of but I'll go for this one because some people will have heard of her:

Martha Wainwright - 'I Will Internalize'

A beautiful, haunting song which also shows how good her voice is....for some strange reason it's only a b-side and wasn't put on her album.

And here comes the obligatory "missed the top 40 by only two copies" comment...
I would like to recommend "We're From Barcelona" by I'm From Barcelona, released 2006, and the promo video is fun too.
