    I think Crowded House generally fit the bill. Despite their popular success, I rarely see them mentioned when critics discuss best bands or albums so, in that sense they are off the radar.

    The Innocence Mission have made a career out of quietly releasing an album every two or three years while raising a young family between albums. Beautiful music that deserves a wider audience:

    After that, I feel the need to re-establish my neo-pagan industrial funk credentials, so how about this gem from 23 Skidoo:

    Still sounds wild, alien and frankly f*cking brilliant after all these years!

    Lonestar is a good call. Another one for the rockers I can recommend is the Montrose debut album.

    Regards
