    Default Looking for some new tunes

    I dig on Coldplay, Bon Iver, Sarah McLachlan, Norah, Sigur Ros, to name a few. I like a big, open, majestic, full sound. Anybody have similar tastes that can recommend a new artist to check out that may be less popular? I feel like the library needs an update.

    Not sure if you've heard the Fleet Foxes. Excellent stuff. I highly recommend them.

    Excellent recommendation. Their first self titled release and their second release "Helplessness Blues" are terrific. Their music is pure SDA magic!!

    Also, the Black Keys "El Camino" is very good.

    Im not sure what your audio setup is but I listen to one song when I test new setups.

    The song is Tears for Fears "the working hour" forget about shout and head over heels. I have it on vinyl and its the greatest song for pushing your audio rig. Another one I like to use is aphex twin selected ambient works vol II. "rhubarb" or "cliffs".

    Also any steely dan vinyl. "do it again" or "deacon blues"

    I would start with the working hour. all of you guys if you dont have tears for fears big chair record you need to buy it just for "the working hour" it sounds so amazing on high end setups you will cry. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOY_aqkUTxY

    Vienna Teng- Waking Hours or Warm Strangers
    Ray Lamontagne- Till the Sun turns black or Trouble
    Melody Gardot- My one and only thrill

    Black Keys are great. Dan Auerbach from the Black Keys also came out with a single which is really good called "keep it Hid". For really good vocals and well recorded albums, I agree with Ern Dog that Barton Hollow and Melody Gardot are really excellent.

    If you are looking for something different with a really full sound, check out The Allman Brothers "Hittin' the Note". I borrowed a copy and it is some powerful blues and very well recorded.

    Do give the Vienna Teng listed above a listen.
