7 Songs You’ve Probably Never Heard Of But Really Need To Listen To

My friend Sam, my roomie Lizzie and I were all chillin’ in my dorm on Friday night. The two of them work together in a music store and I love music myself. It’s something the three of us love to bond over, well, that and food– we LOVE food. Anyway, we were all hanging out and listening to music when the idea of an article featuring some pretty obscure artists came up. I asked the two of them to help me come up with some songs to feature and bam! This beautiful baby of an article was born.

1. You and I both lose (but the number 5 wins) byToehider

Genre: Punk/Metal

Description: Poetic lyrics coming with screeching guitars in a demonstration as to why the punk genre will never die.

2. Love Is a Beautiful Thing by Theo Katzman

Genre: Easy Listening

Description: A solemn ballad of unrequited love. Love is a beautiful thing by Theo Katzman perfectly conveys the thoughts of someone caught in the throes of a one-sided writer.

6. As the Romans Do by Theo Katzman

Description: In a call back to rock and roll artist before him, Theo Katzman’s expert lyricism combines with a kick drum heartbeat to create the adrenaline filled rock ballad that is “As the Romans Do.”

7. Fine! by Mal Blum
