This seems like a good place to shoehorn in some personal music recommendations:

If you like = Then you must check out

Regina Spektor = Feist; Camera Obscura
The Fratellis and Kaiser Chiefs = Maximo Park; The Rakes
Death Cab= Band of Horses; Rogue Wave
Arcade Fire = Peter, Bjorn and John; Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

Other great bands I guarentee you like-minded people will like:

Matt and Kim (garage band/keyboard pop)
What Made Milwaukee Famous (Strokes-esque rock and roll)
Youth Group (gorgeous indie rock)
The Thermals (relevant, adult, political punk rock)
Tokyo Police Club (Gonna be huge -- saw them here in Chicago with Cold War Kids, and it was one of the best shows I've seen in a loooong time.)
Albert Hammond, Jr. (Strokes member goes solo - good stuff)
Be Your Own Pet (A teenage band with a chick lead singer that will rock your fuckin socks off)
Clipse (The best rap record of last year, hands down - if you're into that sort of thing)
The Essex Green (A wonderful pop record with dual male/female vocals)
The Hold Steady (new fangled classic rock with wonderful, and sometimes wonderfully goofy, lyrics sung/spoken by front man Craig Finn)
The Long Winters (Just a wonderful indie rock band - Im seeing them this weekend at The Double Door)
Phoenix (Another great guitar pop/rock record)

The new Modest Mouse and Shins records are also really great. But you knew that already.

Oooh, I feel like a little kid in a candy store.

Thanks!

I'm digging Band of Horses. Already knew the song "Funeral." For those who like Band of Horses... may I recommend My Morning Jacket? : )

Oh, and for those who like the male/female combo (which I do a lot), the Hush Sound.

Yeah, I think Band of Horses got more plays on my iPod last year than anything else (except maybe The Thermals). I love the song Monsters. Everytime he sings the line "When I am lost it's only for a little while..." I get chills every time.

I've only heard one My Morning Jacket album - the most recent one - but I like what I've heard so far.

Haven't heard much of The Hush Sound, though I think they're from Chicago, but I'll definitely check it out.

Oh, and just in case they haven't been mentioned yet... a nod should be given to the Scissor Sisters. I really like 'em so far.

Scissor Sisters are great. Went to see them just before christmas and it was the campest night I've ever had. Is it right though, that they're not that big in America? If so, a bit funny dat as they're huge over here.

Yeah, I pretty much love Scissor Sisters.

Also, Agent Sparks is a lot like Hush Sound from what I can tell.

Really, Hush Sound is great guys. I promise!!! Download 'em!

You kids with your rock and roll and your complicated haircuts.

Besides, all the cool kids are listening to Lily Allen--cute, tuneful and insane. Hey, even Randy Newman digs her

Unfortunately whenever I see Lily Allen, all I think is a) spoilt trashy pig faced tramp and b) her dads cock in Shallow Grave.

Of course that's just me Wink

And Smile is a decent enough tune.

I'm with you on Lilly Allen. I think that record is good front to back....Though seeing her perform live leaves something to be desired.

I've only seen her live on "SNL," where she wasn't too bad, but the album is probably the funniest and most entertaining pop album to come in a while.

So, I just updated my Myspace playlist and I'll have you guys know it includes more than a few of the artists recommended here. (Specifically Band of Horses, the Fratellis, and Nine Black Alps.) I'll have to say that lately, Scissor Sisters has really taken the cake though... I pretty much am hooked on them (and Shiny Toy Guns) right now!

Laura if you're liking Scissor Sisters, I'd recommend an album by a band called Nu entitled AlphaBravoShockPopDisco! - very similar kind of trashy, glitzy pop. However they're a fairly obscure European band who didn't really achieve any level of commercial success (I've had the album for years and never heard anything by them since) so I'm not sure how easy it would be to find them.

I'd also recommend the new Kaiser Chiefs album, Graham Coxon, Captain, The Feeling, Richard Hawley, Super Furry Animals, Elbow, Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Jarvis Cocker, Paolo Nutini, James Morrison and Little Man Tate.

Better catch Amy Winehouse before she becomes a drunken mess - no, wait.

Go for The Twang as well.
