recommend music you like here. it doesn't have to be some obscure band you heard of once so you can add up your credibility points (though that works too i guess). but i mean like i had known of the flaming lips for years but never gave them a chance (and probably never would have) until last year when a friend of mine finally sold me on them. it doesn't have to be new either, just whatever you feel like people need to hear.
also, if you're looking for something new, post what you think you might be looking for, and maybe somebody will already know of a band or an album that's exactly what you're looking for.
lately i've been listening to a lot of beirut. he may not be making perfectly authentic eastern european ballads, but there's something about his music that draws you in in a way that's almost like the way you feel listening to stories as a kid. i've been getting into leadbelly the last couple weeks too.
*edit: i'm not looking so much for namedropping as much as why you'd recommend something. and if you can, try and say something more than just "because they sound like whatever band". especially when you're looking for something totally new, it's a lot easier to get into it if you know why they're worth getting into.
