    I am on the lookout for some new tunes to listen to. Please suggest bands that you think are the bee's knees. The only restrictions are no hip - hop, rap or new country ( not judging, they are just not for me ). Help a brotha' expand his musical horizons!

    My wife and daughter really dig The Black Keys.

    Some good neo-soul: Eli "Paperboy" Reed and Mayer Hawthorne.

    The black keys are good! And for more indie pop I like modest mouse.

    +1 for the Little Willies. They are awesome.

    My wife just brought home a disk by a band called The Civil Wars. Great disk, awesome harmonies, great song writing.

    A guy I learned about here is Jim Wilsey. Awesome haunting guitar playing. I would recommend a song called El Dorado as a starting point.

    Redd Volkeart blogs here adn is a real nice guy. He is also a spectacular guitarist. I am especially fond of a blues tune he did Redd, White, And Blue but you really can't go wrong. Theres some awesome youtube vids of him with Cindy Cashdollar on pedal steel.

    Staying in the Tele vein Doug Seven is a great player, try Cloud Seven or Train What.

    Anything from Arlen Roth. I love the instrumetal version he did of Unchained Melody.

    Bill Kirchen - Hammer of the Honky Tonk Gods is awesome.

    Johnny A has a few albums out. I have the first one which I believe is called Get Inside. You'll lock the door and pull the shade and nobody will see you for a week after you get turned on to this one.

    Webb Wilder did a version of Sing Sing Sing which rocks!



    Most of these treasures I learned about from the TDPRI. I'm just paying it forward.

    I just discovered the Drive-By Trucks. They really have a cool old school southern rock sound.

    This thread needs more multi-media. :cool:

    I suspect this song's going to get overplayed in the coming year, but it's catchy as hell and the vid's pretty cool, especially a rather yummy Kimbra.



    Definitely liking this band's old school soul vibe:



    The Black Keys' new record El Camino is great:
