On this edition of All Songs Considered we share some of the discoveries we made, along with some of our own candidates for bands that should be bigger.

January 22, 2012 With his fiery rock and rousing choruses, Arcuragi crafts songs of community, with music that binds. It's all so full of soul, so unadorned; it's a sound that always feels as if it's reaching toward the sky.

January 10, 2010 When Arcuragi came to the NPR Music offices to play a Tiny Desk Concert, many of us hadn't heard his music. After hearing him play three songs, many walked away dazzled by his voice. Arcuragi's voice is powerful, but without unnecessary melodrama.
October 21, 2009 "Bottom of the River" has already become one of Arcuragi's most beloved live songs, and it's easy to hear why. An ode to embracing your misfortune and letting it wash over you, the track finds Arcuragi deciding to plop himself down atop the rocks of a running stream and commiserate with the fishes.
