London Grammar London UK-ENGLAND4.33 3.05 Slow and sweeping, almost operatic rock, with vocals that remind me of a less flamboyant Florence and the Machine.

Nas New York NY4.33 4.05 Prolific rapper who's been releasing music since 1991.
Lemaitre Oslo NORWAY4.33 2.45 Electronic Indie Dance Pop duo with fun beats, English vocals, and sounds similar to Phoenix and Justice including some great remixes. They're playing their first-ever shows in the U.S. at SXSW 2014.
Matt McCloskey Austin TX4.33 0.25 Guitar pickin' and a soul-finding folk. His voice has a pain in it that makes you want to give him a hug and a 'pat pat pat' on the back while you have a knowing look on your face.
GEMS Washington DC4.33 0.45 Darker dream pop that layers vocals, synth, and hazy guitars to sexy result.
Ms Mr New York NY4.29 4.20 Indie synth-pop duo w/ vocals like Florence but the sound is much darker
Sir Sly Los Angeles CA4.29 1.20 Indie pop-rock. It's a little dark, a little electro, and has some killer hooks to groove to
Conner Youngblood Dallas TX4.29 0.35 Unique singer-songwriter whose whispy soft vocals go nicely with the electro-indie pop loops he creates
