Lesser known albums you need to know

A Listmania! list by Brad Cleveland (Orlando, FL)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "This is my picks on what you should pick up from bands you may or may not have heard of"
Disappearing World
1.  Disappearing World by Fair
The list author says:
  "new album by Fair, awesome band headed by Aaron Sprinkle (producer for bands like anberlin, pedro the lion, and Emery). Excellent sing along rock songs that pull from sixties and seventies influences."
$10.75   Used & New from: $0.96
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Swoon
2.  Swoon by Silversun Pickups
The list author says:
  "second album by Silversun Pickups. A band with a sound somewhere between the smashing pumpkins and sunny day real estate."
$11.99   Used & New from: $2.94
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (135 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Control
3.  Control by Pedro The Lion
The list author says:
  "This album by Pedro the Lion features songs like Penetration and Rapture. Probably the band's heaviest rocking effort still to this day."
$15.48   Used & New from: $2.50
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (47 customer reviews)

You Are My Sunshine
4.  You Are My Sunshine by Copeland
The list author says:
  "The final album by Copeland produced by Aaron Sprinkle of Fair. A fantastic and calming mix of songs sang by the band's lead vocalist and lyricist Aaron Marsh."
$24.99   Used & New from: $3.99
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

Drunk Like Bible Times
5.  Drunk Like Bible Times by Dear and the Headlights
The list author says:
  "The second album from newcomers Dear and the Headlights. One of the more original sounding bands I've heard in the last few years."
$10.99   Used & New from: $2.11
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Then Is the New Now
6.  Then Is the New Now by Denison Marrs
The list author says:
  "A great rock and roll band in the vein of Ken Andrews and Failure (the self-titled 'Denison Marrs' album is actually produced by Ken). The vocalist has a singing style like no other while the backing band provides a wall of rock behind it."
$10.72   Used & New from: $0.01
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

The Pariah, the Parrot, the Delusion
7.  The Pariah, the Parrot, the Delusion by Dredg
The list author says:
  "The latest album from California band Dredg. The album was self-produced and recorded by the band themselves and sounds like a dream. The album features much more instrumentation and experimentation than any previous release from the band. Definitely their most ambitious release to date."
$11.13   Used & New from: $0.88
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (44 customer reviews)

Time Is Fiction
8.  Time Is Fiction by Edison Glass
The list author says:
  "A fantastic New York band with a sound all their own. The two lead vocalists in the band give them a sound that is always new throughout the album."
$7.41   Used & New from: $0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

A Toast to Bad Taste
9.  A Toast to Bad Taste by Far-Less
The list author says:
  "The latest from Far-Less. This album is a departure from their metal influenced shredding into a more progressive rock project. The album flows together with intermissions between each song and the overall creepy tone of the record is well felt."
$7.09   Used & New from: $0.38
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Sumday
10.  Sumday by Grandaddy
The list author says:
  "this is simply one of the best albums ever made. I would describe it as a collection of intense pop rock tunes by a band that makes weezer look like bon jovi."
$9.99   Used & New from: $0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (78 customer reviews)

Olly Oxen Free
11.  Olly Oxen Free by Mason Proper
The list author says:
  "this little known band consists of a drummer, bassist, guitarist, and singer/piano player. The sound created by the four instruments together really grooves and almost has a hint of 70's  funk at times."
$14.90   Used & New from: $0.01
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Mutemath
12.  Mutemath by MUTEMATH
The list author says:
  "the first full length from Mute Math in my opinion outdoes the second "Armistice" because the experimentation is king. The record sounds like what the album sleeve looks like, a band with a bunch of crazy sound gear trying to create something their own. The songs are as catchy and well written as ever with some of the most interesting samples and electronic sounds underneath."
$9.43   Used & New from: $1.87
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (77 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions
