Hildweller- funny that you mention Neil Young. I had the sudden urge to blast "Old Man" and sing along loudly in the car yesterday. This was followed by Stevie Wonder's "Superstitious".
Bear- I picked up that Snow Patrol album recently... I just can't get over the awesomeness of "Shut Your Eyes".
I've been playing the hell out of Bon Iver's "For Emma, Long Ago". It is fantasitic. I think fans of Snow Patrol, Death Cab for Cutie, Sufjan Stevens, etc. would like it very much.
Also picked up VNV Nation's newest, "Of Faith, Power, and Glory" in the last week or so. If you like a little bit of electronica ala Depeche Mode and haven't heard of them you should check it out. Danceable, flying just under the pop radars.
Also, speaking of Depeche Mode, I've been playing their latest, "Sounds of the Universe" for a month or two and it's fabulous. Peace, Come Back to Me, Wrong... they are all so good!
