The drum and bass outfit?
Yes! the very same outfit - checkout the track "The Other Side" from the album "In Silico" - a good old fashioned foot tapper!!
Interesting, seems this 'In Silico' album is a bit of a departure from 'Hold Your Colour'. I'll have to add that to my list.
For all those parents of young children who seem to have stopped listening to music, it won't be long before the kids themselves are listening and then you'll have plenty of 'new' music to listen to and it'll probably be too loud.

Resurrecting am old thread here.
My opinion is that we are more likely to want to listen to the music we grew up with, reminds us or takes us back to our youth. Whether that be a good or bad thing I'm not sure.
I have however discovered one new to me artist in 2013 who I don't think is that well known this side of the atlantic. Justin Nozuka is his name. I found him via LastFM well worth listening to some of his material, in fact I dowloaded a couple of his albums from i-Tunes.
Well worth a listen you may even like!

I myself have really tried to listen to new music. Nothing mainstream from the iTunes chart, but stuff under the radar. NME etc; But like what has already been touched on here, essentially there is nothing new in music now. Its all been done before. I do try to listen to a broader spectrum of music these days. But that's about it !

I listen music A LOT, mostly 90% of it new.. There's so much new music around, like never before - if I would throw some names you wouldn't know a single one. Try Bandcamp, Bleep, music blogs, NTS Radio, Wire Magazine... I could easily spend £1000 on new music only every month.
Looking constantly for new music is in my blood.

I'm making an incredibly broad-brush assumption that currently you don't have babies or young kids. If that's wrong then fair enough, but in my case it wasn't about finding the space, the HiFi was always there, it was about finding the time and energy. We had twins and for the first couple of years it was just a mad cycle of feed/poop/puke/change nappies/washing and drying baby-grows/fitting in a full-time job/trying to catch some sleep. You could have bought me an MP3 player and it would just have sat there and gathered dust.
If you've never been there it's difficult to explain what a massive impact having kids (epecially multiple births) has on your life. I couldn't have been less interested in music and HiFi.
Your assumption is correct - I don't have & are unlikely to start having children. However, I do know loads of people who've had children & children that have left home. Some of those managed to still listen to music much as they did before marriage & some almost only listen to the same music as they were listening to back then, despite having the time if not the inclination. I'll stop listening to music once I'm dead then it's who knows. I'm not completely convinced that marriage is to blame. I can understand that buying new music is not a priority when having to purchase cloths that only last a few months, endless toys, 100s of batteries etc but many still only listen to the same music once they have the time - that's the bit that saddens me.
I've just listened to some chiptunes - I'd better self-sensor my opinions. As for new music, I don't personally draw a huge distinction between new to me & new to everyone.

i mostly listen to metal, which has a massive scene, with more sub-genres than you can think of.
i'm in my fourties, (just) and enjoying music more than ever!

Forever trying to find new music to listen to - and struggle. Plenty of good individual songs but very hard to find bands/albums that make we want to part with my money. Spotify premium has helped a lot though.
