New music, PLEASE! / Ny musik SNÄLLA!

It's been so long since I found "new" music that I really liked. I want to go crazy over a new song or cd and play it on repeat! I don't want all good music to have died in the year 2000. Do you have any suggestions? This is what I tend to like the most: good lyrics, strong female voices (not too whispery), musicals, Elaine Paige, Ruthie Henshall, some opera and great singers like Cecilia Bartoli, Swedish singer Karin Bengtsdotter Olsson, rock-oriented poets like Heather Nova, Ani DiFranco. I like Alanis Morissette a lot but after her second album it went downhill for me. Love Tori Amos and Fiona Apple. Listened a bit to Liz Phair but no real favourite. I like Björk and a bit of triphop like Martina Topley-Bird. Goldfrapp, well, a bit.
Any suggestions?
Det är så länge sedan jag hittade "ny" musik som jag verkligen gillar. Jag vill bli helt galen i en sång eller cd och spela den på repeat. Jag vill inte att all bra musik försvann år 2000. Några förslag? Här är vad jag brukar gilla mest: bra texter, starka kvinnoröster (inte för viskiga), musikaler, Elaine Paige, Ruthie Henshall, en del opera och stora sångare som Cecilia Bartoli, svenska sångerskan Karin Bengtsdotter Olsson, rockpoeter som Heather Nova, Ani DiFranco. Gillar Alanis Morissette mycket men efter andra albumet tycker jag det bara har gått utför. Gillar Tori Amos och Fiona Apple jättemycket. Har lyssnat en del på Liz Phair men hon är ingen favorit. Gillar Björk och en del triphop som Martina Topley-Bird. Goldfrapp litegrann.
Några förslag?

Not really. I am a very weird person (I know you knew that already) and I like quiet. Very quiet. So I only listen to music in the car.

I don't know if I could help you or not ~ I like so many different types of music.

Have you heard anything by Lenka ("The Show"), Michael Buble ("Everything"), or Jason Mraz ("I'm Yours")? I like a little bit of everything so my taste in music usually doesn't make anyone happy! :)

Nix, helt utanför min kompetens... i den mån den alls finns. Jag håller ju fast vid mina gamla favoriter... Däremot har jag har tillgång till är ett gäng live inspelningar med Tori Amos, Legs and Boots. Men det verkar mest vara inspelningar från olika konserter...

noe of my absolute favourite songs to play very very loud is 'place your hands' by a band called reef. the album which has that song is very very good too.
have fun searching for new music.

I love John Martyn and Van Morrison. Otherwise, you could try: Kristy McColl, Amy McDonald, Duffy, Yael Naim.

Go to where you can listen to lots of artists and find new music!

Thanks for your suggestions so far!

Don't like Michael Buble :( I suppose I'm the only one.

I've listened a bit to Kirsty McCall in the past and like her. Too bad she died :(

i always like finding new music too. i can't do anything without a soundtrack following me.

i could make you a mixed CD and send to you. i can't promise you'll love everything i do but you never know what you could discover. :)

Try Karine Polwart - lovely Scottish singer. I think 'Only One Way' is a fab track.

check out el perro del mar for something whispery and dreamy.
crystal castles for something fun!

Kolla upp Sneaker Pimps om du inte har det redan. Trip hop, tror jag det kallas.

Jag ska göra dig en skiva. Ett "blandband". =)

Hoppas PC-köpet gick bra!
