Another band you should check out, Best Coast. To me they are what California sounds like. The lyrics and music are well, sloppy, but it works.

The album Crazy for Youis the best. I haven't really listened to much off the new one, The Only Place. Frankly, I just can't get into it. But add them to the list
Thanks, band and album are on my list now

Regina Spektor maybe. Ellie Goulding seems to be making a big splash but I haven't really listened to her.

Phantogram, I know not on the same page as the above at all, but if you haven't checked them out they are worth a listen. two of my fav's: "Mouthful of Diamonds" and "When I'm small."
On the list too ....

Best Coast are definitely worth checking out to the poster above. I've seen them live before too and I was impressed.

With this being a predominantly US-based forum, do people know much about The Head & The Heart? Stumbled across them a couple of weeks back but based on their Youtube videos, they're relatively well known already. Thoughts?

I really like -
The Head and the Heart "Down In The Valley" - AllSaints Basement Sessions - YouTube and also found another video on the same session below


The Head and the Heart "Ghosts" - AllSaints Basement Sessions - YouTube

Are they popular/getting recognition?

I saw Best Coast this past summer, they were pretty awesome.

The Head and the Heart are from the pacific northwest and have the folk thing going on. "Ghosts" is the only song I really like, and that's due to the piano. Other than that, my knowledge of them is nil. But I have heard of them, so that's something.

I love pretty much every indie/pop band that comes out of the UK

Check out these guys, they are from the same area as The Head and The Heart, and I am really into them. I've seen them live twice; if you ever have the chance, go see them.

Does anyone have any suggestions for bands similar to what The Shins were from about 2000-2007 and particularly their very early stuff, only just got round to listening to Port of Morrow and I have to say, I'm really disappointed with it. Also anything similar to Mercury Rev would be appreciated

Fleet foxes self entitled album is a great album if you like folk indie. And for upbeat indie there is this new band ultraista who uses radiohead's producer Nigel Godrich.

Have you listened to Broken Bells? Mercers side project with Danger Mouse? Very shinsish.

Early Mercury Rev with David Baker (yerself is steam, boces)? Or afterwards because to me they sound very different after he left.
