The title says it all!
I'm constantly on the look out for new music to satisfy myself
Anyway, I thought we could share some of the fantastic new music we've all discovered!

I'll start off:

Laurie Anderson (experimental rock, art rock)

The Mars Volta (progressive rock, experimental, jazz)

Antony and the Johnsons (baroque pop, dark cabaret)


Okay, go!

Ahh, someone else who's always on the lookout for new bands!

Not exactly just discovering, but just now falling in love with and coming to understand why Big Black (noise rock, industrial rock, punk) is so revered... Steve Albini's still a prick though, and so are most of his hardcore fans

Bands I'm just recently listening to/discovering/coming to love:

Today is the Day (noise rock, experimental metal) - Scary, well-crafted soundtrack for urban decay and mental deterioration

The Tear Garden (electro-industrial, gothic rock, psychedelic rock) - Artsy, cool supergroup with members of Skinny Puppy and the Legendary Pink Dots, and too much talent for one band.

The Axis of Perdition (industrial metal, black metal, dark ambient) - Disturbing, atmospheric metal from the heart of Silent Hill.

The Berzerker (industrial metal, grindcore) - Your basic grindcore but better-sounding than a lot of it and with an industrial sound and some cool visuals. Not a lot of substance but just badass.

Deutsch-Amerikanisch Freundschaft (electro-industrial, synthpop) - German EBM, kind of like Oomph! or Rammstein without the metal sound.

Eyehategod (sludge metal) - Apocalyptic, depressive and misanthropic doom-sludge like you'd never believe.

Fall of Because (industrial metal, sludge metal, doom metal) - Just an earlier incarnation of Godflesh, one of my favorite bands. If you know them, you know exactly what to expect, just in a more primitive form.

Sigh (black metal, progressive metal, experimental metal) - They started out as straightforward black metal and began gradually moving in a more experimental direction; now they've dropped the black metal style entirely and sound not too unlike something you would hear from one of Mike Patton's bands. I actually like their black metal stuff better, but both styles are good.

Terry Reid (blues rock, folk rock) - Really good stuff from the guy who was originally approached to be the vocalist for Led Zeppelin. This stuff is kind of Zeppelin-y in places, now that I think about it.

Psyche (synthpop, electro-industrial) - Gothy 80's synth madness, not sure how else to describe it.

Long John Baldry (blues) - Really good old-fashioned blues-rock and pure blues, and from the guy who voiced Dr. Robotnik in the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon, no less. PINGAS!

@ Erasherhead - I'm going to check out some of these! They sound very cool, and I appreciate the descriptions as well, it seems that your are as passionate about music as I am :)

@DepressionFromAllAngle - Hooray! I love trip hop! I've never heard of Hexstatic, so I'll definitely check them out. Also I listened to Amon Tobin for a while, I think 2 years ago or so. He's pretty damn good - I like his Nu Jazz tunes.

Forest Silence - Great black metal band. Has a much cleaner sound than most traditional black metal, kind of like a much less melodic Dimmu Borgir, but still sounds great. Really angry and icy-sounding.

Equilibrium - I already loved this band but I kind of rediscovered their music lately. They're a German heavy metal band that blends blackened death metal vocals with folk metal, German polka, and world music. Has an epic, killer sound.

Cradle of Filth - another band I already liked, but I'm getting more and more into their music.

I want to revive this thread!

Ok, so just today I've fallen in love with about 3 consecutive bands/artists

Moonshake - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - They're just so cool! The first track of 'Dirty and Divine' is possibly the best thing I've heard today.

Okkervil River - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - The only time I'll ever listen to country music is when it's so far removed from anything 'country' that it's awesome.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant_Squid_(band) - Thus began my post-metal phase

Grayceon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - only listened to the one album - it was enough to make me fall irrevocably in love.

Phideaux ? Free listening, videos, concerts, stats, & pictures at Last.fm - (the wikipedia page contained a lot of irrelevant info) - as with Grayceon, it only took me a short while to fall in love, however this time the process happened after listening to only 4 songs or so!
