I need to find some new music. Radio in buffalo generally sucks and plays classic rock that is old in the tooth, top 40 which usually sounds like a bunch of crap to me, and some hard guitar based rock that is a little too loud/aggressive (even though I still like Nine Inch Nails from time to time...) for this middle aged guy.

Likes over the last few years: Grace Potter and Nocturnals, M.O.E., David Byrne/Brian Eno, Derek Trucks, Soulive, Kathleen Edwards, Neil Young (old and new). (so from Jazz to Jam Band, with some older guys that still put out good stuff)

Go see on when in the area: U2, Tragically Hip, Blue Rodeo, 54-40, Springsteen, Hope to catch War again this summer, Pearl Jam, Grace Potter, Derek Trucks, Roger Waters.

So, what new bands might I be interested in?

Some friends and I have a club dedicated to our fave. We call ourselves the Claymates and all we listen to is Clay Aiken.

Kidding aside I feel the same as you do. I usually end up listening to sports radio because I am burned out on everything.

Not necessarily all new bands but...

Avett Brothers - Migonette and Emotionalism
Kings of Leon - Aha Shake Heartbreak and Because of the Times (NOT their newest album which sucks)
Old Crow Medicine Show - O.C.M.S.
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros - Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

Its the same thing around here in Central IL.

With some thought, I could guess the 50 tunes that they play day in and day out on the classic rock stations with a few exceptions thrown in the mix.

Country stations are the same 20 tunes.

We have a station called "Hippie radio" that is generally alright except sometimes they start to get really slow and play crap that no one has ever heard of (and for good reason).

Theres been times at work where I flip it on the Classical station and no one bitches about it. Guess we're all tired of the same ol ****.

Sports talk radio is all I listen to anymore. New music for the most part, is crap, IMHO.

You are correct about new music. Hardly worth listening to.

And this is coming from a 24 year old, the target audience!
