    Your favorite newly discovered bands

    One of my favorite things to do is listening to music that I've never heard before. There's nothing like hearing great music for the first time. I'm always up for some new tunes.

    Over the last year, what are your favorite 3-5 groups/individuals that you've never heard before (could be a new band or one you just haven't heard before)?

    My top 4 would be:

    Silversun Pickups
    Band of Horses
    Angels and Airwaves
    Brandi Carlisle

    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    I like "Vampire Weekend" too

    If you haven't already you might want to check out "Clap your hands say yeah". They've got their own Talking Heads thing going on. So much so that the first time I heard them I said to my friend "Did David Byrne make a good solo album I didn't know about?"

    I've heard a bit of Clap Your Hands... on XM but I'll check them out some more. Thanks for the tip!

    The Shout Out Louds sound to me like a bouncier, Swedish version of the Cure. Couple of the guys from Peter Bjorn & John were involved in the production of their latest album.

    Just checked their tour schedule and they're playing in Portland March 25 at the Doug Fir Lounge.

    Hope they tour the East Coast sometime soon.

    For what it's worth, a friend of mine is best friends with Hank Williams III.

    As for bands, I knew of them before, but I just got the new CD (their second) from Rooney, an LA-based band. Fairly modern rock sound, but with a healthy dose of 70s and 80s influence.

    If you have Directv, their performance at The Roxy in LA is playing on channel 101 this month.

    Re: Your favorite newly discovered bands

    Well, I search for new music constantly....a few bands I found before they got big, such as The Fray...

    Onerepublic is picking up momentum, but I started listening to them when they were only on myspace with no CD out...

    Melee I have been listening to for a little while, but still like them

    Nevertheless I just found recently

    Forever The Sickest Kids is another I just found.

    Pandora.com is a great place to find new music.

    The Fray and Onerepublic eh? Both Colorado Bands..

    The Fray has been big here in Denver for years, so I'm a bit worn out on them.. which sucks. But hey.

    Some bands worth checking out:

    The Kooks
    Louis XIV
    Cold War Kids

    I'm loving me some Cold War Kids. Fantastic!

    The Kooks are good too, but damn, I really like the sound of the Cold War Kids. "Hang Me Up To Dry" and "Hospital Beds" are just plain awesome.
