Personally I prefer the cleaner sounds though, like TTNG and colour and so on, easier on the ear I find

VV Brown, Melanie Fiona, Uffie, Santigold, M.I.A, Lykki Li, Sia, Massive Attack, Yelle, Teairra Mari, Richgirl, Chester French.
Though, if I think about it, sometimes it's best when some really good artists you like aren't the most massive in mainstream. Think about it; if they suddenly were, their songs could well get overplayed on the radio to the point you're sick of them, they'd be too overexposed on tabloids for all sorts of things like a lot of current celebs are, and their songs could turn mediocre and too mainstream. Do you get what I mean? For example, I'm a big fan of people like Rihanna and Lady Gaga, but even they can annoy me sometimes with how overexposed they are in the media. But I suppose if you're a big enough fan of someone, none of this would really matter much?

What bands do you think should be much bigger than they actually are? I thought this thread might be good for discovering some great new bands, so post the ones you think we should all be listening to.
My personal favourite is Nizlopi, you've probably all heard their JCB song but they're so much more than that. They've got a few albums which have some of the best songs I've ever heard.
Here's one of their songs called Freedom http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66dXHCCyQIw
Let me know if you like them.
and blue october ;D
but really, THIS.

He may not be big in the "pop culture" that dominates most young people's music tastes, but among music fans, musicians and jazz aficionados he's very well known....
But, he is an absolutely fantastic wide-ranging and talented musician.... love his music.

Manchester Orchestra, Brand New and Kevin Devine. And all the grey areas in between
I also think that people should give the new Hellogoodbye album a listen...not at ALL like the old stuff.

Vinterland, their sound was awesome, really different to the other black metals acts that were around at the same time. They had a more melodic vibe with a bit of a gothic feel to it, which hasn't really been done as well as they did it since. I only found them by sheer luck and I'm glad I did.
Shame they only did one album and thats its so rare that its not on itunes and that it costs stupid amounts of money on ebay if you can find them.

The stand out Edinburgh band from the 1980s, they should have been much bigger than their Scottish following, appeared to manage to fall out/fall out of favour/ self destruct with all their record contracts/themselves, who were awesome live with a really loyal Scottish following but from memory only got I think two singles into the charts.
Shirley Manson (later with Garbage)
Goodbye Mr Mackenzie

There was a band called Jakobínarína who split up in 2008. They released one LP, The First Crusade. I thought it was an amazing indie punk album. Shame they disbanded.

Sorry for continuing to spam you, but if you like the softer sound, then maybe American Football would be right up your street:
Thanks to you I've found another good sound, cheers!
