Ok, here's some kickarse bands that I just recently discovered:
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
The Cat Empire

Tonight @ The Orpheum in Boston I saw Honey Honey open for Matt Nathanson who opened for Lifehouse.
First time hearing Matt Nathanson, and I must say I was definitely entertained.
Do a lot of people actually like July For Kings? Maybe I just don't get it. Their stuff sounds so mediocre to me.
Also, Television has to be one of the more underrated/underappreciated bands ever. It happens when you don't have a lot of material though. Julian from The Strokes said that Television is by far their biggest influence (which makes sense).
Anyway, I'll make a few recommendations.
The first is to check out Panic at the Disco's new record, "Pretty Odd." They're not exactly a new band, but the record is new and it sounds really good. It sounds nothing like their first effort and musically, this album sounds like a Beatles record (a cross between "Sgt. Pepper" and "Magical Mystery Tour"). I did not care for their first album at all, but this is a special record.
Secondly, I recommend Duffy. Great singer from Whales and she's like this really cool hodgepodge sound of Dusty Springfield, Norah Jones, Dolly Parton, Amy Winehouse and some others I'm not thinking of. I'm curious to see how she'll be embraced in America.
I'm enjoying a band called Dodos this week. Bit poppy, bit rhythmic, bit all over the place...they're fun.
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
I kind of see his style as being as you said, a mish mash, mostly of Queen, David Bowie, and still some 80's hard rock roots.
I was really disappointed that I found out who Marvelous 3 was 8 years after Butch, Jayce, and Slug called it quits.
