They sound all right.  Not a huge fan of their music.

I've been listening to a lot of Modeselektor recently. They're electronic, but they also have a few songs with Thom Yorke which are a completely different tone.

#27 Posted by Origina1Penguin (3504 posts) -

Check out the Mickey Mouse Operation album by Little People.

Also look up AERIAL2012, any of their albums.

I like checking user playlists that iTunes provides on artist and album pages.  They usually bring me to something else I'll find interesting.

Let the Submersible Hamster Podcast carry you away into New Music Land: http://www.hamsteralliance.com/submersible/

There are 28 episodes in the back catalog, which I'm sure will have a high concentration of bands you've never heard of.

Check out a guy named Matthew Good, he's an alternative-rock artist from Vancouver Canada, been around for 15-ish years. Kinda well known in Canada but basically unheard of anywhere else. His album Avalanche from 2003 is pretty damn awesome, or if you want something a little more mainsteam his album Beautiful Midnight from 1999 is really good too. He used to sing with Matthew Good Band but the band split up in 2001 and now he just goes as Matthew Good. Here's Youtube links to some of his songs.

Weapon
Carmelina
Apparitions

If you are into instrumental music then I would recommend the following titles:

This Binary Universe: by BT

Music for 18 Musicians: by Steve Reich

Both are good representations of minimalist music genre.

#37 Posted by MisterSpiffy (880 posts) -

K'Naan.

He was born in Somalia, and mainly raps about issues taking place there.  Most of his songs are rap, but there's a couple that I'd call rock.  I just bought his newest album today, Troubador.  One of his songs, Bang Bang, can be found for free on the iTunes Single of the Week.

Lots of the music suggested is great, but some are EXTREMELY inaccessible. I love the mars volta as much as anyone else, but it took me a while to get into them.
 
I'd suggest some easy to get into things, like:
 
Keane
Daft Punk
A.F.I.
The Hives

#45 Posted by SmasheControllers (2553 posts) -

Silversun Pickups, TV on the Radio, and Basically any Indie.

#46 Posted by Player1 (3892 posts) -

If your into hiphop check out Ivan Ives. He spits to some old school beats, about new school stuff. His sound is awesome. 
 
Asher Roth is also my boy. Hes WAY more than I love college. Believe me. 

#47 Posted by Chuggsy (556 posts) -

Streetlight Manifesto- Ska Punk, they have some of the most unique and great sounding songs I've ever heard. They know how to make somebody tap their feet and sing along, without being shallow or repetative. They're amazing.

Against Me! - Punk, kinda, but you just have to listen to them. Very emotional, but still badass songs. Just listen, you won't regret it. Or you might hate the guys voice. Either way....
