Andrew Bird - Weather Systems; Armchair Acrocypha; The Mysterious Production of Eggs
Band of Horses - Cease to Begin
And against my better judgment, Jack Johnson - Sleep Through Static.
I don't watch any music channels or listen to the radio that much so for new music I keep up by occasionally listening to NPR's with Bob Boilen. He's got a good mix of stuff (save for any hip hop) and celebrity guest djs, including John Waters (who I love) and Thom Yorke.
