"Now, here are some of your no-name bands. Sonic Youth? Nine Inch Nails? Hullabalooza?" - Homer Simpson. We love our no-name bands. We pick 100 you should be familiar with every year.
Adam PfleiderWatching The Inbetweeners and Fresh Meat and only speaking in British slang afterward. Also Daisy > Your Favorite Weapon. Fight me.
Alex DiVincenzoMayhem Festival. Once a maggot, always a maggot.
Ryan GardnerRelient K and Go Radio
BlakeBreaking Bad and Hop Along for female-fronted emo-indie and Sport for French-accented twinkle.
Jack Appleby Loyal Wife's Faux Light, Quiett Dog's Rough Drafts (Ryan Hunter's new project), Go Radio's Close The Distance and Moonrise Kingdom.
Kyle HuntingtonAnything and everything Brie Larson. In love. Also some music or something (a whole lot of The Cure, getting excited to finally see them in two weeks).
Craig ManningYellowcard's Southern Air is hitting me in all the right ways. Also, Glen Hansard's Rhythm & Repose, John Mayer (both Born & Raised and The Complete 2012 Performances Collection), and Matthew Mayfield's A Banquet for Ghosts

Bloc Party - Four is a grower
Foals - I have no idea why I put off listening to these guys for so long
Peter Bjorn and John - "Young Folks" is the catchiest song ever recorded ever.
Antony and the Johnsons - Only Antony could make track two of a live album a seven minute speech on feminism and keep the listener interested
Jens Lekman - Can someone please give this guy a hug?
Beachwood Sparks - Perfect Summer music. Country-inspired indie. RIYL Dawes
Halls - Great British composer. RIYL James Blake
Yo La Tengo - Just downloaded their discography and starting to work through it.
