in the second part it will be about bands with less than 1,000 listeners...even more obscure!
in random order:
1. Beatbeat Whisper
A guy and a girl make some nice folk songs together..it's all very quiet and soothing. Ayla Nereo sometimes reminds me of one of these new generation folk singers (Alela Diane, Mariee Sioux) and i prefer it when she sings... the other guy, also known as That Blasted Hound (which can be downloaded for free on archive.org) is okay too...
For Fans Of: softly singing whispering folk songs
2. Jacob Borshard
People who are into ukelele pop must have heard of this guy. But if you like twee this is stuff for you. and it's free! On www.creebobby.com you can download two albums... go Ukelele!
3. Benji Cossa
