Troysnoise was born in late October 2010 with the goal of sharing the tremendous sounds that cross its path. Over the years troysnoise has developed a superior ability to distinguish between worthy and undeserving, so there's a high likelihood that you'll like the majority of tracks you find here.
It would be too mundane and simplistic to post mainstream releases, so the focus is to reveal emerging and relatively unknown bands that are still playing small venues and who aren't afraid to kick it with the fans after the show.
The source of inspiration for the site arose in late May at a Band of Horses (a personal favorite of the past few years) and Pearl Jam (all-time domination) show played live on the "greatest music stage in the world," Madison Square Garden. PJ cranked out 34 songs with a set list for the purists, playing rarities like "Black, Red, Yellow," and "Sweet Lew" for only the sixth and second times live ever. The video above is from that concert, featuring Ben Bridwell (lead vocals for BOH) alongside Eddie V. bellowing out Temple of the Dog's early 90's classic "Hunger Strike." Even Bridwell agrees with me on PJ being the best ever with his acknowledgment at the end of the video. These guys have reached the mainstream, but at one point even they were an obscure and unknown, playing to half empty dive bars and music halls.
