Some pretty amazing songs ( to my liking) have popped up in the below threads, I was missing an important genre in my likes:

 

Alternative! Well, more like, Indie, folk, progressive, southern and anything not "mainstream" rock per se.

So I'll have my go:

 

Of monsters and men - Little talks

 

 

Paul Banks - The Base.

Yeah, I know there are musical services out there like last fm, but this a more "personalized" neowin version :D

Check out a band called "Brand New".  Especially the Deja Entendu album.  Amazing stuff!

Some other ones to check out are "Jacks Mannequin" and "Motion City Soundtrack".  Those are more mellow and relaxing types of music.

Hmm let's see.

 

For Motion City, check out: 

1.  L.G. FUAD

2. This Is For Real

3. The Future Freaks Me Out

 

For Jack's Mannequin, check out:

1. The entire Everything In Transit album.  It's pretty awesome from beginning to end.  The Mixed Tape, La La Lie, and Dark Blue are my favs from that one.

2. Swim

3. Spinning

4. His previous band was Something Corporate and their song "If You C Jordan" is really good.

 

As something else sort of unique, check out "Pierce The Veil".  I'd say they're pretty post-hardcore.  I never really liked bands with the high voices like that, but the song "King For A Day" is one of the most catchy songs I've heard in a while.  Them and Brand New played at a music festival I went to this past weekend, and both played phenomenal sets.

Also Deaf Havana, their old stuff is more post-hardcore but lately they've been turning a lot more to alt-rock!
