    I've been listening to a lotttttttt of stuff like this lately.
    The sheer raw-ness of the sound and the talent it takes to write a lot of this stuff amazes me :yesway:

    Here's some i've been listening to:

    William Fitzsimmons is my favorite at the moment, he has one of the best voices i've ever heard in my life, no joke
    (as a side note, epic beard is epic :lol:)




    Also, City and Colour is another favorite of mine


    (this one has to be the most beautiful 2 chord song i've ever heard :agreed:)


    And finally, Kings Of Convenience
    Gold In The Air Of Summer still remains one of my favorite songs of all time :yesway:


    I'm always happy to find amazing stuff that i've never heard before! So post away!

    DUDE, I've been dying to find more stuff like this. I practically wore out my City and Colour cds. Post up as much as you can think of.

    Man, im having such a difficult time finding what I want. I basically want City and Colour's doppleganger.

    Most indie acoustic stuff has soft airy vox and happy themes. I want super sad depressing lyrics and powerful singing. Prefferably with just guitar and voice and no other instruments involved.

    This guy is a MUST see. He's from Dallas, TX. If you ever get a chance to see him (he travels once and a while), fucking DO IT!




    That's a 9 string Taylor, btw. (three highest strings are doubled, like a 12 string.)

    Do you know Sun Kil Moon? It's one of Mark Kozelek's bands, tons of amazingly beautiful stuff. This is a Modest Mouse cover:



    This one isn't quite acoustic but it's profoundly good:



    Jeremy Enigk (Sunny Day Real Estate) also has some great solo acoustic stuff:



    And then *shameless plug* there's my own stuff in this vein: Pilau on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

    only two songs on there at the moment.

    Some metal, only the bands decided to make an acoustic version. They're pretty awesome in my opinion.







    Also, the end of this song. :lol:
