Awesome funk band, the mainstream hipsters with the deadpan singer that still manages to sound really really cool.
Short Skirt/Long Jacket
- Yes, you've heard of them... but have you heard of their GOOD stuff? (Relatively good, even their worse songs are amazing)
And, my personal favorite, Knights of Cydonia
- Cool Prog Rock band. Similar to Pink Floyd. Good songs for sitting back and relaxing to. Most of them are long, but give them a chance. These are some of the most beautiful songs I've ever listened to.
The Sky Moves Sideways (Part 1)
Arriving Somewhere but Not Here
. (One of the best songs I've ever heard)
The Start of Something Beautiful
Buying New Soul
- British, does a lot of playful love/hate songs, but her lyrics are amazing, her voice is amazing, and her songs are actually quite amazing. Some explicit words if you care or not
Who'd Have Known
Everyone's At It
(about, but not advocating, drugs)
(about sex but who the hell cares)
that I can't put under an artist because there aren't enough...
77 Bombay Street - Up In the Sky

Two Door Cinema Club - Sun
(Another feel-good song)

Sara Barielles - Bottle It Up
(Her voice. And the piano.)
Sublime - Pawn Shop
