    Sigur Ros. They have so much more talent than most of the crap out there today. It's like, how the hell do the Pussycat Dolls make millions while these guysare relatively unheard of?
    If you'd said that in 2000 then yeah, I'd agree. To an extent. But in the past couple of years their music has been played on Radio 1 during the day and used on so many adverts. Their fanbase is huge now. Just take a look at their messageboard... in the space of a few months they'd managed to get more new members than the number of original members put together. They're not as huge as The Pussycat Dolls, no, but to say that they're relatively unheard of is a bit... strange.

    *Delighted* Am slowly but surely falling in love with Sufjan Stevens. His lyrics are fantastic.

    Speaking of fantastic, has anyone heard of Devendra Banhart? He's a GENIUS! His music is as funny and vibrant as it gets, I urge you to checketh him outeth!

    He looks like this:



    Interesting, non?

    Check out the his latest album on http://www.cripplecrow.com/ (might I recommend 'I feel just like a child' as a bombastic starting point )

    Anyone know Joanna Newsom? She's got a wonderful song called "The book of right-on". She plays the harp.
