I’m looking for some obscure band recommendations…got any?

I have thousands of CDs/vinyls, but so you can get an idea of my taste in music (and so I don’t get a long list of bands I already have), here are some of the artists that I have on my computer. Like I said, I have a lot of music so please try to be as obscure as possible with your suggestions. Thank you!
