My favourite recent discovery is a local rock band called Wake To Wonder. These guys are absolutely amazing, and I see big things in their future. Just check out this track:

And there's a slower duet version with Almarie Du Preez, recorded live - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMz8L3ZA93s

Then take a listen to the rest of their stuff. Really, really talented bunch of guys...

Post bands and musicians you've recently discovered, across all genres. Try to post the band name and genre in your post...

This track from Wake To Wonder is brilliant. A dedication to South Africa. He even uses the phrase "lekker braais"...:D

Another band I recently discovered that I really enjoy is Crystal Fighters. Their alt version of Champion Sound just screams Summer:

Another band I discovered a few months ago was HAIM. There's just something very cool about them. The rhythm just works. I've been looking for some more (what I call) alternative pop and they fit the bill...

I think I heard them on the radio recently...

CHVRCHES are a band that remind me a lot of the 80s. Probably because of the distorted synths they use. Dig their track Guns. Also a little "alternative pop"...

And for those of you who enjoy the style of London Grammar and Florence + The Machine, you might enjoy Ms MR - Hurricane...

Not new, but my latest favorite South African band.

I just accidentally discovered Grant Macdonald on Rdio. :sick:
Very NSF WTF
He's a country and western rapper that likes shagging cowboys. (Can't make this up if I tried)
Picture listening to Lindsey Stirling and then having it replaced by this guy's newest release - 'F*** me deep' :wtf:

Bit more down tempo, but these guys should fit the bill.
