I have to add my agreement to recommendations, especially Neil Halstead, Starsailor, Ed Harcourt, Mull Historical Society...

I also like Michael Head & the Strands (Magical World of the Strands), Cooper Temple Clause, Alfie, Beta Band...so many I can't think of right now. Oh, also, if you haven't listened to Nick Drake, I highly recommend that.

Definitely. You are right though, I guess you do need to be in the mood for mellow music. If you haven't heard much of Neil Halstead, he is very similar. I know people compare many musicians to Nick Drake, but I think Neil Halstead (Sleeping on Roads) is one of the most accurate comparisons.

*coughobsessedcough*

But Neil Halstead is VERY good. So are Mojave 3 and Slowdive.

Ed is wonderful though - if anyone ever gets the chance to see him live, definitely go!

Well, basically I just found a new band called "Mercury Rev". It'd an odd band, but beautiful music. Download a song called "The Dark is Rising", "Godess on a Highway" and give em a good few listens. You'll know if you like em or not. They are great on those late night when you've had some to drink or...whatever. Enjoy.

Mercury Rev are excellent. Deserters' Songs is their best album.

I agree. And if you want some more electronica/chillout/world stuff, try SiSe. They're my fave unknown band.



http://www.luakabop.com/sise/info.html

There's a U2 connection, in that their record label, Luaka Bop (world music) is somewhat linked to Brian Eno.

You can also try Putumayo's World Lounge, a mixture of global, psychedelic chillout, lounge music. Really cool.
