Yael Naim and Susheela Raman-There is still decent music coming out!
I've been disgusted with the quality of contemporary artists. Thanks to youtube and spotify I've managed to find few that stand out.
Susheela Raman, good songs include The Same Song, Save me
Yael Naim, good songs include Toxic (actually the best cover of toxic I have ever heard) and Far Far
Then theres this guy on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgJG7aYkiYw&feature=autofb he has the best cover of Fake Plastic Trees (dare I say even better than Radiohead) and also check out Wish That Home Were Here
