Matchbox 20 - anything of theirs for the most part is definitely solid.

Silvertide - I've been a huge supporter for a year now, love their stuff. The future of retro rock.

it's gayish. yanni is a concert pianist. you'd recognize some of his music if you heard it. the theme song for the masters golf tournament is a yanni song. it was meant as a joke. i'm sure you'd recognize enya too.

I couldn't think of a good word to describe. Gayish I think sums it up best. :-b

I like Matchbox 20 ...

Hell, I'm listening to Santana's album "Supernatural" Rob Thomas is in as I type. Not the actual song he's in (Smooth), but even still.

Also, hit up Motown. you gotta love young Stevie Wonder and the temptations. They are my favorite out of Motown, but there are other greats! ;-D

Underground music, man - it's all about the underground!

Some of my favorites from last year and this year:

-> Sufjan Stevens - Illionoise

-> Architecture in Helsinki - In Case We Die

-> The Boy Least Likely To - The Best Party Ever

-> Built to Spill - You in Reverse (although you should start with 'Keep it like a Secret')

-> Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! - S/T

-> The Clientelle - Strange Geometry

-> Interpol - Antics (although you should start with 'Turn on the Bright Lights')

-> Chin Up Chin Up - We Never Should Have Looked Like We Were Skyscrapers (or something to that effect, I can't remember verbatim)

-> Broken Social Scene - S/T (definitely start with 'You Forgot it in People')

-> Caribou - The Milk of Human Kindness

-> Neko Case - Fox Confessor Brings the Flood (if you like this album you will like all her stuff - not the best, not the worst, but very new)

-> New Pornographers - Twin Cinema (Neko Case's other band)

-> My Morning Jacket - Z (although you should start with 'It Still Moves')

-> Danielson - Ships (if you liked Sufjan Stevens, you'll like this - he's a collaborator on this album)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Some all-time favorites:

-> Jeff Buckley - Grace

-> Death Cab for Cutie - We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes (they were soooo amazing before the emo fags realized his lyrics are deep, latched on, and ruined this band. arrg)

-> The Postal Service - Give Up (this was great for about 4 months last year - until you were forced to hear the songs everywhere. Now that those movies died and all those commercials have stopped airing, I like it again.)

-> Dismemberment Plan - Change; Emergency & I (I don't think I've ever been more sad than the day they broke up. Much worse than any relationship breakup!)

-> Badly Drawn Boy - Have You Fed the Fish; The Hour of Bewilderbeast

-> Ride - Nowhere (this cd is in my top 5 of all time)

-> Radiohead - OK Computer (don't listen to these fruitcakes that like godawful mainstream horseshiat music and say that Radiohead didn't deserve to make the BotB. Personally, I think they are and will eventually be widely recognized as the Zeppelin of this generation.)

-> Portishead - PNYC (I don't know what it's really called, but it's a live disc from new york and the cover says 'pnyc')

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

OMG! There really is good hiphop out there!

-> Jedi Mind Tricks
-> Immortal Technique
-> The Streets
-> Aesop Rock
-> Eyedea & Abilities

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Electronic Faves:

-> Four Tet - Pause; Rounds

-> Mum - Yesterday was Dramatic, Today is OK

------------------------------------------------------------------------

That should do it for now. PM me with what you think, and I'll give you some "well I know you like this, you will definitely like this..." recommendations.

You would be doing your ears a huge disservice to not check out these bands. That goes for the guy that likes Matchbox 20, too.
