Here is some great music to try...
Grinderman - Grinderman
Debut album from blues-rock supergroup featuring Nick Cave and Warren Ellis of The Bad Seeds. Nasty, dirty, bold, abrasive and brilliant, with more than a few echoes of Cave's early band The Birthday Party, Grinderman's music is not for the faint of heart - the blues deconstructed and played with wild abandon by men who describe themselves as "old enough toknow better". Includes the single 'No Pussy Blues'.
Check out their MySpace site for more info.
Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
The sophomore release from Canada's premier alt folk-rock multi-instrumentalists is the eagerly anticipated follow up to 'Funeral,' one of the surprise smash hits of 2005. Described as "like standing by the ocean at night" by lead singer Win Butler, 'Neon Bible' is a collection of huge, multi-layered masterpieces which include an incredible range of textures and instruments, including a full Hungarian orchestra and a military choir which easily surpasses its predecessor in terms of originality, scope and accessibility. Includes the single 'Keep The Car Running.'

The Cure - Japanese Whispers
This is a favourite of mine! Classic Cure from 1982-1983. Four singles and their B-sides including:
- The Walk
- Let's Go To Bed
- The Lovecats
