I've noticed a lot of polls for Best Band of, certain time period, genre, etc., but this is an important one. It doesn't involve that feeling you get when you start getting into a band that doesn't play live or make new music anymore, and half way into loving their second album you realize that you will never see them live, or hear any new music after plowing through their discography.
There are also a lot of variables here. I'm sure there are people who would like to see Arcade Fire in the running, but they have only made two albums, and can they really stand up against legends like REM or The Cure who have passed their prime, but are still releasing somewhat relevant music?
I almost started a poll on this, but I thought a discussion was in order since there are bound to be a ton I am forgetting. So who in your mind is the best (or some of the best) band(s) still making new music?
The one's that come to mind for me are Radiohead and Elbow.
Other bands mentioned thus far are...
British Sea Power
Nine Inch Nails
Yeah Yeah Yeah's
Boards of Canada
