I have gone through every band on every day and nothing has blown me away yet. Can anyone recommend a band that doesn't sound like regurgitated Talking Heads or The Smith's wannabees or your typical hipster hip hop or folk rock. Where are the bands doing something different and new and exciting. I'm not trying to harp on the lineup because I'm going and am going to have a blast, but I need something on this lineup that I haven't heard before to excite me.

I pretty much know everything on the first 3 or 4 lines of each day and the following bands.

Tame Imapala
Sleigh Bells
Elbow
Delta Spirit
Radio Dept.
Joy Formidable
Trent Moller
Phantogram

Also, I know there are tons of great DJ's but I am looking for bands.

Post Youtubes if ya can.

definitely not Talking Heads, Smiths, hip hop or folk rock.

definitely old school punk rock though, strong Replacements and Pogues influences, among others, so may not be "different and new" enough for you.

definitely exciting, though. my #1 album of 2010

Mount Kimbie isn't a band per say, but they're definitely something original. Give it a listen:

I want to see Empire of the Sun, but for some reason i feel like they could be super dope or just really bad

Please, please do yourself a favor and see Empire of the Sun. I already feel bad for the people who miss their performance
