She & Him
Iron & Wine
Pocket Full of Rocks
Band of Horses
Over the Rhine
I'm not sure of the history of some of these artists/bands but they have at least one song that I really like. I know....that's scary.
I will say that I heard most of these artists for the first time on Pandora as I would stay up late editing pictures. If I heard a song and liked the artists, I looked them up on iTunes. It's a great way to let "something else" pick similar sounds for you rather than browsing around and spending time doing it yourself.
I think that's all for now....go to iTunes now and listen to the demos!
