I'm a huge fan of Mike Goodrick. He's unsigned and his sound is kind of eclectic--sort of pop, sort of acoustic rock, sort of techno. It's hard to describe. I actually came here to see if his lyrics were listed and when I saw that they weren't, I decided to transcribe them, only to realize that HE wasn't listed as an artist. I submitted him for approval, though.
A major upside to Mike Goodrick is that he really interacts with fans. Most of his shows are at Hot Topic in malls in suburban areas and he replies to messages and comments on his MySpace page. Plus, he's a good PERSON. He doesn't wear shoes because other people in less fortunate countries need them more. Obviously, his ONE PAIR doesn't do much, but seriously... if someone's barefoot, you're gonna notice. In any case, he's a FANTASTIC artist and a wonderful person. I think that makes him worth the listen.
His MySpace URL is myspace.com/mikegoodrick. He's definitely worth the listen.
