In Need of New Music

The Ingrid Michaelson and Imogen Heap suggestions are great ones! I'm always looking for more female artists, because there are few played on the radio. Proportional to how many are played on the radio station I listen to, I buy far more females. And those are the two whose CDs don't disappoint at all. I need to get Ingrid's new one, though!

To the original poster, I recommend The Bird and the Bee's albums.

Ok, the post below is funny to me. They're pretty much all good suggestions.... but calling Secondhand Serenade mainstream, and Counting Crows and Damien Rice not... Hee. Secondhand Serenade is more poppy, yes, but definitely not more mainstream yet!

my mainstream favorites:

all time low- dear maria
secondhand serenade- fall for you
thriving ivory- angels on the moon
katy perry- hot n cold

not really mainstream i guess:

damien rice- blower's daughter
damien rice- delicate
damien rice- lonelily
straylight run- a slow descent
straylight run- buttoned down
straylight run- the first of the century (it gets really good about halfway through)
counting crows- a long december
counting crows- omaha
counting crows- round here (absolutely amazing)
modest mouse- missed the boat
modest mouse- spitting venom

random stuff:

gym class heroes- the queen and i
bob marley- natural mystic
flobots- so happy together
third eye blind- slow motion
daft punk- harder, better, faster, stronger
tal bachman- she's so high
ingrid michaelson- the way i am

yay!

yeah you're right.. but i was just thinking from the point of view of a 9th grader. no one else i know listens to Damien Rice, but they all love Secondhand Serenade. and that one song Fall For You plays all the time on the main 'hits' radio station around here.
but i guess the idea of "mainstream" differs.

and by the way, the songs I Remember and Rootless Tree by Damien Rice are amazing as well as the ones i mentioned earlier.

I don't really have any direct suggestions that haven't already been mentioned... but when I'm looking for some new bands, I'll go to Pandora, plug in a song that's similar to what I'm looking for, and I get to hear a bunch of similar bands/artists for free. I found a bunch of CD ideas there.

Esperanza Spalding. I need to buy her actual album, but the songs I've heard are really nice. That's if you like jazz musicians(she plays the double bass and sings).
A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.
