I want to listen to some music that deviates from angry shouting and threats of tearing faces off with sporks.
I've got a small selection of bands which are more chilled out and suchlike and am looking to broaden my tastes in this area. I'm not really into the whole new "OMFG indie!!212" trend, I'm getting more into softer rock or acoustic stuff.
Here's a list of the stuff I'm enjoying at the moment:
Absinthe Glow (purevolume.com/absintheglow)
So I'm looking for you to tell me some bands that are vaguely similar to them that you'd recommend and I'll give them a check out.
cheers for recommendations, keep them coming.

Yeah I've got the two latest 3DD albums, away from the sun is nice and mellow :-)
> Nine Black Alps.
Awful awful band. Saw them open for Idlewild and they were dire.
If you're looking for Death Cab songs to get into, I'd suggest Lack of Colour, We Looked Like Giants and Sound of Settling
As for Deathcab, was a little disappointed with their album - it's fairly plain.
Here Without You and Away From The Sun are the best of the latter's stuff, whilst the former have done the beautiful One Year Six Months, the rocky Back Home, the emotionally-charged Cigarette and the simply awesome Rough Draft.
Belle & Sebastian also.
Jimi Hendrix (not really a band)
Because I can.
