I just discovered...
Lal & Mike Waterson - Bright Phoebus
After hearing Night Of The Pelican in Unacclaimed, I went looking for an album of theirs, and this is the only one AM ranked. It reminds me of Fairport Convention only with fewer instruments and more delicate expression of emotion.
Laura Nyro - New York Tendaberry
Even better than Eli & The 13th Confession and instant top 100 AT list material.
After just missing the 60's poll for like three years in a row, Laura Nyro needs her due props.
It's more intimate than Eli, the first three tracks makes that clear. Gibson Street and Mercy on Broadway are beyond amazing in execution. The album as a whole is a terrific experiment in melodies and lyrical image. Laura deserves her top 500 status long overdue. She's beyond underrated, it feels almost like a crime.
The Replacements - Unsatisfied
Sandy Denny - North Star Grassman and the Ravens
Robyn - Hang With Me
The Weeknd - High For This
Jackson C. Frank - Dialogue
The Monkees - Pleasant Valley Sunday
I fall on the Androgynous side as well
Drum's Not Dead by the Liars. I haven't discovered it per se, since I'd actually heard it quite a lot and knew most of the songs already, but I listened to it last night all the way through, properly for the first time, and a strange sort of beauty creeped through. Anyone else like this album?
Black Star - Respiration has become one of my 5 favorite hip-hop songs. Unbelievable lyrics and delivery by three very talented MCs (Mos Def, Talib Kweli, and Common).
Random rediscoveries after seeing nj's post and searching for "similar artists" (not necessarily from 1992).
no sand... Killer shared these synth riffs that Smoke On The Water only could've dreamt of... and while Sinéad, Lady Kier and Betty Boo dealt the real sh-boom of 1990... the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ended up as the truest of all deep ands..
