Some great stuff there, Thoughtforfood!

Top-10 artists or something:

Teenage Fanclub
Yo La Tengo
Red House Painters (Mark Kozelek in general, but the RHP stuff are his best in my opinion)
Low
The Jayhawks
Piano Magic
U2
Neil Young
Cowboy Junkies
Damien Jurado

Don't make me rank these further - I can't.

I'm mostly into sad-baaastard singer/songwriters and americana with pretty vocal harmonies and acoustic guitars, but try to branch out. I love shoegazey stuff like Slowdive, Lush and Mahogany, late 80's/early 90's indie rock (Dinosaur Jr, Sebadoh, The Lemonheads, Velvet Crush, The Posies, etc), angry-but-sensitive women (PJ Harvey, Scout Niblett, Julie Doiron), Icelandic too-beautiful-for-its-own-good glacier music - in lack of better terms (Sigur Ros, Johann Johannsson, Olafur Arnalds), and more straightforward pop with a twist (The Go-Betweens, The Lucksmiths). And giants like Radiohead, R.E.M - yeah, even Coldplay - too.

Oh, I want to marry the voices of country-goddesses like Emmylou Harris, Paula Frazer and Carla Torgerson (from The Walkabouts), by the way.

Whoa - namedropping galore!

I'm surprised at how many people like U2. I can't stand to listen to them live, once Bono starts singing its terrible. He doesn't have a very delightful voice live. Far to much work done by the sound engineers in the studio.

I will get some RHP at some point. Ghosts of the Great Highway is one of my very favorite cd's.

As to Emmylou, Frazer, and Torgerson, I couldn't agree more.

In that case you should give Songs for a Blue Guitar and Old Ramon a shot. The two final releases under the Red House Painters moniker, they have the same traditional folk rock vibe as the Sun Kil Moon albums, whereas earlier RHP is more gloomy sadcore. The first four RHP albums were 4AD releases, and the label bosses probably wouldn't have enjoyed the more traditional leanings of SKM. Actually, I think Kozelek was dumped from 4AD, because he wanted to make a more Neil Young/Crazy Horse'ish album. All that said, I love just about all of the RHP albums - the monstruous Rollercoaster is one of my all-time favorites, and Katy Song is one of the most beautiful songs ever written IMO.

By the way, I love Ghosts of the Great Highway, too - at least the first seven songs. I always lose interest halfway through Duk Koo Kim, and although the two tracks toward the end is fine in their own rights, the album sort of loses its momentum there. A shame, really, but it's a mighty fine album nevertheless.

You just need to find the right stuff. ;)

I spent about 3 years working in a music store when I was a wee lad and got great exposure to all kinds of music. If it's good music, then I like it.

There are worthwhile artists/bands in ALL genres.
Search them out.
