dEUS! Yes!

Glad you're getting the word out there-- more people need to listen to this brilliant band...
Although "Pocket Revolution" isn't their best album, anything from these boys is damn good, and I'm glad you know that! :)

Yes! BSS, Jason Collett and Stars!

You should check out the lovely, talented, and gorgeous Feist (www.listentofeist.com), who's also on A&C and part of the BSS family!

Also, I don't know if you've heard of them, but Wolf Parade are good too. I personally love their older recordings of most of the songs on Apologies To The Queen Mary, but the album is still good. If you ever need those recordings and can't find them, I've got them. :)

That Wolf Parade album is good, although I havent found myself going back to it much in recent months.
One of my favourite new bands are a Kentucky band called the Apparitions, they had an album out earlier this year, 'As This Is Futuristic,' which is insanely catchy.
My favourite band of the last couple of years has been the Features, a Tennessee band, who have yet to explode in the Uk, despite releasing one of the best rock records of the year in 'Exhibit A.'
I've been listening to a lot of early Roxy Music, and Elvis Costello and the Attractions recently.
