I have been waiting for a thread like this.
Santigold - amazing woman, blends genres. A different point of view. New album, after 4 years, is coming May 1.
Graffiti6 - just released an album. The lead singer has a great voice and the music is vey soothing. Gotye - you've seen him. Check out the rest of his work.
Making Mirrors is truly an amazing album designed for earphones.
My faves are State Of The Art, I Feel Better and Eyes Wide Open.
