A lot of my favourite tunes are the ones not many people know about. Listening to their B-sides and more artistic songs, you get a deeper understanding of the artist you’re listening to. Here’s 5 favourite underrated songs that I’ll love forever.

Jeff Buckley – Vancouver

For people that don’t know me, I’m THE Buckley fan. As much as some people still appreciate his work since his passing in 1997, I only wish he was more relevant in today’s time. This is one of my all time favs from his unfinished 2nd album. Being only a demo, you can tell this tune had heaps of potential of being a classic if he was around long enough to finish it.

Mitski – Class of 2013 Live performance

Mitski is awesome, blowing up overseas and starting to get known in Australia, there’s plenty of reasons why she’s killing it. This tune was the first thing I heard, watching her live tiny desk concert performance. Yeah it’s not a radio song which is why it sucks not many people know about it, but it’s one of her best.

Nina Simone – I shall be released

Nina Simone is one of my all time influences and has influenced many genres and an array of artists. This is one of her lesser known tunes, ‘I Shall Be Released’. I feel absolutely uplifted inside listening to this, something you can’t describe that only music can do. Everyone should know a bit of Nina.

Gang of Youths – Both Sides Now
Striping back the more known Gang of Youths signature sound, it’s a great change listening to Dave Le’aupepe solo covering a beautiful Joni Mitchell song. I appreciate his diversity of writing and performing for large scaled rock shows and still able to strum delicately with an intimate voice. You go Dave!

Courtney Barnett – Small Poppies

Building up a song slowly and precisely is key to make me fall in love with your music. Small poppies is a great example of this, slowly creating this underline of tension that builds iup to these massive solos and jams. It’s a pretty long 7 minute song, but god is it good!
