I think a fantastic but oft overlooked band is Built to Spill. Its "indy" and I think that is why. Anyway, I recommend starting with either Ancient Melodies of Futures Passed or Keep it Like a Secret.

Default I was thinking...

Just yesterday I bought some Cheap Trick album called ¨All Shook Up¨, circa 1980. I had that LP in the past, but I forgot how powerful it was...

Imagine some late sixties Beatles meet LedZep... incredible hooks, good -though not stellar- guitar playing, very good singing...
I overlooked that album since +/- 1985; my old one was missing -surely loaned to a friend, or something alike-; so it was really a revelation to hear it again.
The album is nicely produced -George Martin, Montserrat Air Studios, top analogue technology of those years-, and is very uplifting.
Cheap Trick fans -maybe purists- tend to dismiss this lp; but I reccomend it very much.

Regards

Default classix stuff

Acd, I´ve been listening to some Wishbone Ash stuff... maybe it would suit your taste: classic rock, twin guitars... powerful!

Cheers

Try the Mars Volta, an alternative / progressive rock group who are quite experimental. Sort of like Pink Floyd on steroids, with a dash of Radiohead. Excellent vocals and guitar work.

Their best album is "Deloused in the Comatorium" (2003), later albums are a bit too experimental for me. You will need to listen to the album a couple of times to get into it but the music is quite refreshing & different.

Another good way to find new artists for a genre which you like is to try www.pandora.com - an interesting concept where they have detailed categorisation of a huge database of songs so does an excellent job in playing "like" music. Type in your favourite artist or song and it generate a playlist of like songs with obscure artists, and will adjust the playlist as you tell it what songs on the playlist you like or dont. You can follow up on the songs/artists you like, and it makes for great background listening by the computer.

Regards,
Dean

I know how it is, cause here in Argentina is similar...
Sometimes is just a matter of luck, you know, ending up finding interesting music in the garage sales or in the salvation army, but finding nothing in the ¨official¨ records shops...

Regards, and good luck!

For CD's that I can't source locally I find eBay is my friend and have been able to find all the ones I was hunting.
