The Wedding Present.
Seamonsters, hands down. I wrote about it here (in the MLBMOTW thread) and there's probably still a link for it in the group, if you're a member.
After Seamonsters, go to George Best then Watusi.

or Spilling Over Every Side if you're more into his newer wubwub (dubstep) style.
You might as well get them all though, they're all free on his website.
p.s. His new-ish singles We Must Go On and So Bright are both pretty good.

I concur with FEELs on Tamaryn.
No Joy have one full length called Ghost Blonde, and both it and the recent Negaverse ep are very good.
Suuns also have only one full length, Zeroes QC, and it's pretty interesting. They're much better live - a lot noisier and a lot more rockin'.
Young Magic is probably my favorite of the bunch. Their debut 2012 album Melt is totally weird and awesome.
Roky Erikson is tough because he has a career on his own that I'm not overly familiar with. He was also a member of the 13th Floor Elevators, and that band was out of this world. The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators is one of the all time great albums.
I wanna start listening to Scott Walker. I was planning on listening to his five cd anthology first.. is that a good idea?
I feel like Tilt is the better place to start for new stuff, since it's shorter and slightly more accessible than The Drift. The Drift is better, to be sure, but to get the trilogy in full effect it's best to start from the beginning.
I'm listening to those tomorrow.
Listened to the newest Nick Cave release Push the Sky Away and really enjoyed it. I have never listened to any of his other stuff. What should I listen to next?
Great. Will check out
You're in for one of the greatest musical discoveries of yr life ^^
