Grüß dich,
you should try the band Alt-J. I really love their music,
and it's a good mix between Rock and Electronic

I've been jamming Ulver's Teachings in Silence a ton lately and haven't had any luck finding bands or albums that fill that same niche for me. I'm looking for glitchy dark ambient juxtaposed with occasional acoustic instrumentals and repetitive chant-like vocals. Something eerie and dreamlike would be awesome.

Thanks in advance!

I've been hitting a lot of dead ends in terms of new music, and this seems like the place for recommendations. Here's what I have on my Pandora station, to give people an idea of what I've been listening to lately:

Arctic Monkeys
Brendan Benson
The Black Keys
Broken Bells
Cage the Elephant
Franz Ferdinand
The Fratellis
The Good, the Bad, and the Queen
The Heavy
The Hold Steady
Interpol
The Mars Volta
Portishead
Portugal. The Man
Queens of the Stone Age
The Strokes
Jack White
Yeah Yeah Yeahs

You can assume that I'm familiar with an artist's former associations (e.g. Blur, The White Stripes). Any recommendations, preferably artists who are active today?

Have you thought about stepping into genres that are alien to you? You will end up finding a ton of new music. Well music that is new to you anyways.

Spotify and Lastfm are good for finding recs close to similar artists. You could try going through the history of different genres. Check out the education of threads that we have around.

I guess I wasn't clear: I'm a music nerd. My background is in classic rock, psychedelic soul, and hip-hop. I've been listening to more alternative rock lately specifically because it was "alien" to me. Well, maybe not alien, but less familiar anyway. I'm looking for artist recommendations, preferably not country, metal, or progressive.

What I like about Pandora vs. those other radio apps is the ability to add multiple artists to your station, rather than creating a station based on a single artist or your iTunes library. With Spotify, etc., unless I've missed something, you have to pay to do that.
