    Adele posted a link to a video of theirs on her website a few weeks ago, and within an hour I was downloading everything of theirs I could find (and paying for it!) Their song Poison and Wine was used in a Grey's Anatomy episode in 2009. I watched the video of them doing a cover of Leonard Cohen's Dance me to the End of Love and I was shocked to find out that they are not in a romantic relationship. They sizzle like Martini and Underhill did on the ice. eta- one more link to the title song from their new album -Barton Hollow.

    I haven't found an artist that I liked so instantly since I first heard Damien Rice.

    I'm also listening a lot to The Decemberists and Mumford and Sons. I like the mix of rock/folk/traditional sounds.

    Anyone else have any new music that they've fallen in love with?

    I've really been getting into the band Fun-they're a lot of fun lol. Also love Mumford and Sons, and was recently introduced to The Tallest Man on Earth-if you're looking for a folk sound. Also really getting into some older music-I adore the Kinks, and the Moody Blues.

    I'd also highly recommend Tally Hall, a band from Michigan that describes themselves as "wonky rock!"

    Also, thanks for the introduction to The Civil Wars! I'm in love with them already. :) Their voices blend together so fluidly, great sound.

    Edens Edge. I heard their first single on the radio . . . I guess it must have been a couple of months ago now. Fell in love on the spot. Here's the video.
