Unknown and your favourite bands and artists?

So, I'm looking for new stuff to listen to, so I thought you guys could help.

I really like to listen to bands and artists that aren't really popular. and I also like to listen to stuff my friends tell me they like, popular or not. Every time someone shows me a song they like, I'll end up liking it and the band/artist who sings it, so I'm open to pretty much everything. But, i really hate things like rap, and heavy metal.

A list of some artists and bands I listen to already are:



Sigur Ros

Regina Spektor

Wizard Rock


Owl City

Third Eye Blind

The Script

Cobra Starship

Short Stack


Sunset Rubdown


Arcade Fire

    Cursive (Look up the song Art Is Hard, immediately hooked me)

    Thursday (Look up the songs Understanding In A Car Crash, Steps Ascending, For The Workforce Drowning)


    The Secret Handshake


    Envy (Screamo, but the only Screamo band that's as soothing as Sigur Ros, trust me on this one. Listen to Go Mad and Mark, Chain Wandering Deeply, or A Warm Room)

    Envy On The Coast

    Taking Back Sunday

    Children Of Nova (Really small)

    The Fall Of Troy

    Circa Survive


    Kings Of Leon

    Passion Pit

    The Blood Brothers (Later stuff, listen to Laser Life or Peacock Skeleton With Crooked Feathers)

    Anberlin (Feel Good Drag, Day Late Friend, Paper Thin Hymn)
