How can we introduce you to new stuff when we don't know what stuff you've already heard?

BC, simply suggest something, and if I've heard it, I'll let you know. Warning though, I own quiiiiiiiiiiite a few CDs... so I'm already pretty broad.

Bear, thanks. I've listened to Sigur Ros before, very talented, but I can't really get into them. Bach, Beethoven and Mozart -->

Pete Yorn, Rufus Wainwright, Loudon Wainwright (if you can deal with folksy stuff ), The Hives and The White Stripes are all on my plate as of late. But if Had to narrow it a bit I'd vote for Pete and Rufus....go become one with the music!

I don't know what kind of music your into aside from U2 of course, but I'll suggest some of these artists that have really influenced and impressed me.

Elliott Smith - Before I came across this dude Radiohead were my undisputed 2nd favorite band...now I'm not so sure. This guy can write such amazing songs with complex yet catchy structures. Lyrics that are clever and a voice that is soft around the edges. My number 1 recommendation!
try: waltz#2, miss misery, Say Yes, Son of Sam, Junk Bond Trader for starters...you'll be hooked then

Ours - Want something a little more rocking? Well their debut album is just about as flawless as flawless can be! A voice that will make you think of Jeff Buckley at times and Thom Yorke at other times. They have a new album coming out in the fall..it wil rock!!
try: Fallen Souls, Medication, Dizzy, Here is the Light, Temporary Loss(new bootleg)

Mogwai - The kings of underground rock as far as I'm concerned. Dynamic songs that could be rocking at one point and then make such a unqiue transition to trancey slow music that you won't even realize the tempo has changed. This structure pervades most of their songs, which tend to be over 10 minutes long...10 minutes of musical bliss!
try: Take me Somewhere Nice, Sine Wave, Dial:Revenge

The Frames - another Irish wonder! They're actually quite popular over there and were rated number 2 live act under David Gray in some magazine poll. I loaned Dance the Devil to a friend and he came back raving saying it was an amazing CD. It only took him one listen.
try: Seven Day Mile, God Bless Mom, Pavement Tune

thats all for now
