I think Jack White and the Black Keys are pretty far above the radar right now. Both sell millions of records!

The Avetts have joined the mainstream, too. I'll be seeing them in a 20,000-seat basketball arena on New Year's Eve.

Still waiting to be discovered: The Sword (from Austin). In 1978, they would have been bigger than Van Halen!

The Stone Coyotes. Hardest-rocking combo consisting of a mother, father and son ever!

Ike Reilly. Indescribably good.

The Real McKenzies. If you like punk and bagpipes... and who doesn't?

You are corret about The Black Keys, they released five studio albums before they started selling truck full of album. I am glad they made it into the radar and is a positive development in the day of crappy pop and rap music. I will check out the other artist you have listed in your post and thank you for contributing to this thread:)

Two Gallants -
a San Francisco based duo that sounds kinda like the White Stripes - at least some of what they did. Some of it is acoustic and country/folkish. I have been follwing them since their second CD "What the Toll Tells " came out and they are my favorite band. So for me personally and for what it is worth they are better than Jack White.
Why not start with their new album:
The Bloom and the Blight

Some not completely new British artists that may not have reached your ears yet.
Hope by Northern Irishman Foy Vance being hailed in Britain as the new Van Morrison, some wonderful youtube clips available too.

The House That Dirt Built & Glorious Dead great funky rock .

Jamie Lidell's superb pop album Jim
Matt Holland's Quantic Soul Orchestra Pushin' On

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals seem to be really gaining steam. They may hit it real big very soon.

Great discussion. I would agree on Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.
Another group I like is Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears.
Another group I like that's been around since the 80's is The Smithereens. I know they are not new, but even their new music fits right in with the British Invasion of the 60's.

H&L, I just left names but I will add a short description and a YouTube link for each:

Rival Sons - Hard rock, Led Zeppelin style comes up often in describing them.

The Answer - Hard rock also, I have heard them compared to AC/DC and I think they opened for AC/DC but hear AC/DC a bit, but I might also say Zeppelin or maybe Humble Pie.

Saint Jude - Female led hard rock band. Think a heavier, bluesier Grace Potter. Influenced by bands like Free.

Blackberry Smoke - a modern day Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Black Stone Cherry - A heavier Skynyrd, more like Blackfoot or maybe Molly Hatchet when they sound more hard rock than southern rock.

Joanne Shaw Taylor - Really good blues guitarist and singer.

Beth Hart - Blues and soul are the signature sound of this gritty singer. Her album with Joe Bonamassa is great.

Thanks John, I agree with you abut The Smithereens. An artist does not need to be new to make a post on this thread. Sadly too many good artist who have been around for awhile but have not gotten in the public eye, I like for people to bring those artist up as well.

Hello all,

Activity as picked up a bit since I created this post. I have been busy myself and not had the time to make any new post so I just want to thank those who recently check in and I want to also wish everyone a nice Thanksgiving.:)

Raphael Saadiq is relatively new, but to hear him, he sounds like classic soul from the 60's. Great stuff.

Malford Milligan (formerly of Storyville) -60s soul for sure
