Question Looking for similar-sounding artists

Hello, I have been looking around for a while to find similar sounding artists to my favorite artists, and so far the search hasn't been going too well. I've tried a variety of sites for the purpose, and they all yield pretty much the same results, I've checked out most of these bands and I more or less don't care too much for the results...
Anyway, I wanted to list some of my favorite bands and I was hoping maybe some of the knowledgeable people here may know more about similar artists...

Efterklang
Mum
Sigur Ros
Under Byen
Animal Collective
Canon Blue
Amiina (to some extent)
iLiKETRAiNS
Ef
Lights Out Asia
Bell Orchestre
Slaraffenland (to some extent)
Saxon Shore (to some extent)
Clogs

I particularly like songs with melodica and/or violin solos and/or a nice march/parade beat to it...
some examples of songs I really like by these artists

Efterklang - pretty much any song, but especially Jojo, Frida Found a Friend, and Falling Horses
Mum - I can't feel my hand anymore, it's alright, sleep still... Weeping rock rock, guilty rocks, a little bit sometimes
Sigur Ros - Staralfur, Samskeyti, Ara Batur, vid spilum endalaust
Bell Orchestre - The gaze, air lines/land lines, salvatore amato, the upwards march
Saxon Shore - four months of darkness

I always hunt around for dirty Alabama type blues but the stuff I come across is usually full accompaniment and too polished.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
check out leadbelly and blind lemon jefferson.

Check these out if you can as well...

Muddy Waters
Buddy Guy
Howlin' Wolf
John Lee Hooker
Mississippi John Hurt

^ You should find them ok anyway. Also, you should be able to find some cheap V/A comps in a highstreet store somewhere pretty easily too, which I find are usually the best option with classic blues.
