Great Artists with < 10,000 Monthly Listeners

For a few years we've had a very popular thread "Recommend a band with fewer than 500 followers". A lot of you have shared great bands you've discovered that had less than 500 followers. 

 

Some bands you all recommended in the above thread were:

spotify:track:4A9hzLUX67TwVzCBjj8bFf:small

spotify:track:6Tlp4FhYCiIuH9ruutLfPm:small

Today I'm recommending Reuben Hollebon, a singer-songwriter from Norfolk. Any fans of Bon Iver, Patrick Watson will love.

Spec - I Can See Us Forever (feat. Toro)

 

SPIN Magazine

 

From Spin's Website:

 

" Stage Name: SPEC

Hometown: Santa Cruz, California

 

 

Tim Jack Wilkins, better known by his stage name SPEC, sounds so comfortable balancing low-fi, gravelly indie rock and synth-heavy electronic composition that you’d be forgiven for thinking he cut his musical teeth in deep, dark Detroit winters or Williamsburg circa-2002. But Wilkins is from Santa Cruz, the capital of chill, a place you’re 10 times more likely to see people grooving to a drum circle on Friday night than bobbing their heads to Mr. Fingers or Bloc Party. No where is that more apparent than on Wilkins most recent EP Love in Colours where standout track “Cherry Cola” roars open like high-energy Arcade Fire and smooths itself into bass-heavy electro-rock somewhere between OK Computer and the Dirty Projectors’ Bitte Orca."  -T.M. Brown

Gisela Novais And The Blue Summers

They are actually split into two artists on Spotify, The Experimental Pop Band with 15 monthly listeners and Experimental Pop Band with 29 monthly listeners, so I have included a song from each artist page:
