Recommend me a new artist to discover...

Before Christmas I was all U2 and very little else. Since Christmas I have wildly enjoyed Pink Floyd, The Beatles and David Bowie. Still have one more Beatles album to get, and probably another two Bowie albums, though at this stage I think I am done with Floyd, in terms of albums.

Anyway I am here because I want to continue my musical path of discovery. Can someone recommend an artist or band for me to get into, or try to. I'm looking for decently popular artists though. Recommend their most accesible albums/songs.

Anyone mentions Radiohead they get a crack over the head.

Porcupine Tree. But you knew I'd say that. Stupid Dream is quality.

Or how about The Chills? Submarine Bells is such a gorgeously well done album.

That's where my finger suddenly gained a mind of its own and floated to the off button...

and I was thinking about Led Zeppelin.

Are Porcupine Tree or The Chills death metal or metal? Cos if they are, no offence intended, but I'm not going anywhere near them.

Porcupine Tree most certainly aren't. They're heavy, but melodic. Definitely not mindless death metal.

Hell no.

Now, in PT's heavier moments on their last three albums, I can see a comparison (especially Wedding Nails, which is seriously rockin' and rifftastic), but The Chills, metal? That's really funny. They were the most successful band of the Dunedin Sound, which had its origins in 60s pop-rock and 70s punk and was essentially proto-indie rock.

Now, if you ever want a metal mindfuck, just check out Melbourne's own Horde. Christian black metal! Simply the concept of the genre is enough to mess with your head.

The Stone Roses aren't death metal either, if you're wondering.

Have a deep look into:

The Cure (Start with Wish, or Desintegration or Kiss me)
Soundgarden
Chris Cornell (Moring Euphoria is unbelievable)

Enjoy!

I'm going to make an insanely huge list for you tomorrow. It'll blow your mind and make your wallet ache.

The only death metal band in the world is U2.
