I have been living under rock. I know it. And now you all know it too. A month ago, a friend of mine discovered that I never heard that song Beautiful by Akon and was shocked. I never even heard of Lady Gaga until recently. Well, I'm sure I've heard her name or have seen it somewhere before, I'm just not paying enough attention to let the it register. And I just heard the song Halo by Beyonce for the the first time like 30 minutes ago. Yes, pathetic, I know. I just can't stand listening to the radio. All the commercials drive me crazy. So I'm asking, cause I apparently need help, what songs have come out in 2009 that I should have on my ipod?
Florida by Starfucker.
And last.fm is a good place to find new music while working ... if your computer can handle it.
If we knew what kind of music you liked; then suggestions would be easier to compile. Personally, I think the state of American Music is dismal at the moment. Relentlessly whiny and undauntingly pitiful, it caters to the inner-child of disaffected dilettantes in every suburban strip-mall.
Seriously, I listen to all kinds of random things. I need to be musically educated, so whatever you've got, let's hear it.
Thanks Jessica! I like it.
I'm tragically behind the times too, and also largely anti-radio. These guys have been around for a short while and the one only killed himself like a year or two ago. That's about as current as I get.
Here's about 3 hours worth to browse through:

While comprising some of the softer stuff I listen to, I've been in love with this band for a very, very long time. They've been getting a lot of mainstream exposure recently, which I hope doesn't ruin them.
Minus The Bear
Everybody I've turned on to this band loves them on first listen.
but they're no Division the Cow (that joke brought to you in honor of my dad, who used to call my 1992 favorite band Pearl Jam "Diamond Peanut Butter.")
I'm getting suck kick ass feedback. Madmamma, I've got one word for you: Sweet! Fox, I remember you telling me about this band and thinking they were pretty darn good. How did I forget about them?
Darcy, thanks for the joke. You got a chuckle out of me.
People, keep them coming. I'm greatly benefiting from your input.
do it. you will find all kinds of new music you like.
you enter the name of a band/musician you like and it plays music similar to them. whole songs. in continuous stream.
Has been very sluggish. I used to listen to pandora until I realized that my computer worked a little faster if I didn't. Maybe I'll go back to it on days when I don't have a whole lot to do.
Therefore it is time for "Beyonce Clown", behold...
that i would have to think about.
I didn't know any of those names you just listed. I'm youtubing them right now.
also maybe Kings of Leon.
(neither are new, but both have some energy behind them)
Not sure if you're into that, but the Ponderosa Stomp website has an excellent radio station that's loaded with rare American roots music.
explaining then performing "Rollo Interior"
That song (you know the one, his vocals are completely indecipherable and it's all over the radio, sporting events, retail stores, etc) makes me want to gouge my ear drums out with rusty screws.
In other news, Creed performed on Conan last night and it was the worst thing I've ever heard in my life. I'm honest and completely serious this time. I say that about a good bit of music, but this takes the cake, by far.
listen to the others. although you may still hate them after that.
you made me bust a gut with your Creed take.
ChiKung listening to roots music?! hahahahaha.
I will now hear that song in my head on repeat for the better part of two weeks. SHIT!!!!!
Scott Stapp even started rapping in the song...on two occasions. Yep, serious again. It was randomly and alarmingly inserted like during Blondie's Rapture, except emasculated, crooning nu-metal targeted towards morbidly obese pimple-faced teens.
If you need a solid pick-me-up today, I recommend giving that a watch.
doth protest too much.
you probably have a poster of Stapp above your bed.
What a hottie. Something about recovering drug-addicted Christians in nu-metal bands really gets my motor running. Yum yum, give me some!
yellow ledbetter by pearl jam?
Suburban Kids With Biblical Names
El Guincho (this guy is amazing)
That was a kick ass list. I had a song from Passion Pit on my ipod already (courtesy of itunes free music), but I forgot to check out what other songs they have. I added Little Secrets to my song collection and a few other songs from the artists you recommended.
If you like Grey's suggestions, you'll likely like these.

and if you've truly been living under a rock and aren't burnt out on The Shins and Death Cab for Cutie like the rest of the world, then you should definitely listen to them.
You have brought good music into my life. I really like Friendly Fires. Their video for Skeleton Boy is really cute.
is definitely more tolerable, but the guy's voice makes me want to rub my ear drums on a rusty cheese grater.
I just never really got into that resurgent '60s lo-fi garage rock revival stuff...with the exception of maybe the White Stripes or the Hives. It just seems like the modern bands couldn't do it as well as the bands they were imitating.
i cut off the lead singers head with a kitchen knife (during his short hair phase). i tried to hide the head, but it resurfaced in the toilet when the plumber came. it was in a plastic bag and i said, oh don't mind that. i through the head over by his body hidden on the floor by behind the bed. the head magically reattached itself and he came back to life.
i then ran for my life down the street jumping behind bushes and car chases ensued and bunch of other cracked out shit.
Are you sure it was the singer and not a piece of shit that resurfaced in the toilet? I can see how telling the difference could be confusing.
Thank you Fonduefork. Both artists are very cool. I love it!
