I discovered Alexi through Stargate Universe. As far as I know, they've had 2 of his songs: Breathe & All My Days. Very cool artist and purposely disassociated himself from the industry. Has his own production going. I got 2 tix for his concert on Feb 17th at the Lincoln Center. $75 for table seats near the stage.

I discovered Midlake via iTunes. As I was listening to Alexi on there, the Genius pane had them on there and gave them a shot. They're a modern day band that sounds like they're out of the 60's. They studied jazz but made 3 sixties records. :lol: I got their latest one: The Courage of Others. After listening to all the samples (check Amazon if you don't have iTunes), I thought that album is the better starting point. The first song on there is great: Acts of Man. The band is like a mix of the Beatles and I dunno, RadioHead.

Just thought it would be cool if anyone else likes these guys cuz they're off beat and really talented. Hidden gems.
