Hooray you got the ball rolling! Well I must say you're pretty comprehensive, and you captured a number of the lesser-known artistes I like a lot. I don't agree with everything, but you've covered most of my favourites. I'd just add a couple:

Death Cab For Cutie - Plans
James Blunt - Back to Bedlam
Robbie Williams - Intensive Care
Secret Machines - Ten Silver Drops
She Wants Revenge - She Wants Revenge
Sonic Youth - Rather Ripped
The Tears - Here Come The Tears
Vienna Teng

You good lah ... everytime I think something is missing I find it right there. Kudos!

Yeah, this is stuff I've listened to and liked. Of stuff that I haven't listened to and want to listen to (and bands to form and music instruments to pick up and tracks to mix...), there is no end.

Thanks for the recommends! Will check them out!
