Here a small list (in no particular order) of lesser known artists that are worth a listen.

Actually I’m just using this list as an excuse to create a YouTube player. I’ve always found it cumbersome to click through a lot of YouTube links. This is how I think is a better way of playing videos, instead of reloading or opening a new window, the video opens and plays right in here. Pretty nifty ain’t it?
Note: there are some unplayable videos in the list due to restrictions from the publisher, can’t do anything about it (sadface).
Update:Check out my jQuery plugin: jquery-youtubepler it's the easiest way to create a YouTube player from links.
