Renaissance
Sleepy Sun
Hatfield and the North
Mumford and sons
crystal castles
LCD Soundsystem
The Unicorns
Strawfoot
Wintersleep
Treepeople
Ghost Mice
Talking Heads
Portishead
Lulu

These are the ones that I think are worth checking out. LCD Soundsystem is an indie/dance-punk band that plays music influenced by the post-punk of new wave bands of the late 70s. They're pretty overrated, but their second album Sound of Silver is definitely worth checking out.



Treepeople is the first band of Built to Spill frontman Doug Martsch. They've got a pretty different sound but they're good too. Definitely check out Built to Spill too.

Talking Heads is basically the best and most influential band to come out of the New York/CBGB scene in the late 70s. That's really all there is to it.



Portishead are an influential trip-hop band from the UK that were a driving force behind the genre's proliferation along with Massive Attack in the 90s. Check out their debut album "Dummy" from 1994

Portishead, Ghost Mice, LCD Soundsystem, and a great deal of Talking Heads material (if you're anything like me, you'll like some of their songs on an album and despise the rest, so expanding your horizons on them is your best bet).

With every fiber of your being, avoid The Unicorns!

@Stone Birds

Hatfield and the North keeps popping up as a recommendation on my last.fm, because I have a lot of Henry Cow plays. All I know is that it's a progressive, jazz-rock band from Canterbury scene. I haven't listened to it yet, but I youtubed some of their songs and I have a feeling I wouldn't like it.
