Omar LOVES his dissonance. It had to grow on me, truthfully, but now I can't get enough of it.

I highly suggest checking out De-loused in the Comatorium, and after that, Francis the Mute. They are earlier releases with their previous drummer Jon Theodore, but by no means is his playing anything less than great. They do some really cool things with heavy latin rhythms. De-loused is definitely my favorite. And Flea plays bass on this one, which is awesome.

Recently for me it's been Hot Chip.
After seeing them play at work, and having heard their singles played at club nights, i got their albums and im HOOKED!

As for The Mars Volta, well they're the best band in the world to me. Frances is my favourite album ever, i actually think their 2 most recent ones are their weakest, but their still high in my favourite albums list.
Get Frances The Mute.

Zimmers Hole!!!!!
Best new metal band out there.
It has three out of four strapping young lad members. Jed simon(guitar), byron stroud(bass), and the one and only legend of metal Gene Hoglan(drums). and for vocals it has Chris Valagao. Producing the vocals for the record though was none other then Devin townsend. They have three albums out, and there newest and best one is When you were shouting at the devil....we were in league with satan.

Favorite new band (to me) is Dead Soul Tribe.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_Soul_Tribe

They've been around a few years now, but it's only been in the past year I've heard of them, and I have to say, they've immediately become on of my all time favorite bands.

Frank Zappa's blown my mind away lately...

Great composing, great feeling and great humour.

Billet-Deux!!!! i heard one of their songs on sirius-xm's Real Jazz channel, and i was hooked!!! There like some crazy italian jazz group consisting of a cello(!!!), a violin(!!!), a guitar, and drums. They are AMAZING. Anything with cello's and violins usually blow me away, but this is on an even higher level.

Doubt anyone has ever heard of them before tho.

The Secret Machines.
They have a psychedelic style, and background bits of Iron Butterfly and Pink Floyd.
