VIN - what are you in the mood for?

although not really new - might I suggest:

Editors - The Back Room

Matt Pond PA - Several Arrows Later

I also have the Gnarls Barkley release if that intrigues you.

What are the Editors and Matt Pond like?

I'm not really into the whole Gnarls Barkley thing.

Here are some fun bands to check out:

Tragically Hip - Trip-hop

Of Montreal - Poppy rock, sorta similar to the Kings of Leon

Danger Mouse's Grey Album is pretty cool (cross between Beatles white album and Jay-Z's black album)

Editors are a little more harder edge with a sound very similar to old U2.

Matt Pond is more melodic with some catchy pop tunes.

Me too Vin...I know Rilo Kiley better, but this new one is Jenny solo with these two female backup/harmony singers and a backing band in some cases...pretty decent.

I have Rabbit Fur Coat. It's a great album.

Gotta put a plug in for my favorite NYC-centric band, The Walkmen.

I'm guessing if you like Editors (great band) you might enjoy them as well. Great live sound, great songs, they do convincing slow and fast numbers. Lots of use of piano, classic reverberated direct-to-amp guitar fuzz, etc. that doesn't get in the way of great songwriting. I always likened them to a garage-rock take on U2 without all the world-saving pomposity.

Of the 3 they have out, I'd recommend "Bows and Arrows" as the best to start with. They're putting out an entire covers album of Harry Nilsson's "Pussycats" later this year, which is hilarious and just the kind of offbeat thing the band always does every few years.
