OT: Open Music thread (and PSA)

There was a music thread on this site a while back, and a lot of people recommended a band called Of Montreal.  I listened, got into them, and went to see them a couple weeks ago in DC.  And holy crap, what an awesome show!  It was one of the best concerts I've been to.  So first of, thanks to the McCoven, and second of all:

Public Service Announcement: they are playing in SF in November, and I believe tickets are still available.  If you like them, you should definitely go, because their live show is amazing.  In that sense, they remind me a fair amount of one of my long time favorite bands, the Flaming Lips.  There are lots of bizarre stage antics that get the crowd really into their shows, including people in animal suits.  And I'm not sure I've ever seen a crowd as into a show as the crowd was at that one.

But enough about that.  It's been a while since I've seen a music thread on here, so I think we need one for the coming baseball-less autumn months.  What is everyone here into these days?  I haven't gotten much new music of late and can always use some recommendations.  Other new (to me) music I've been listening to:

Secret Machines (whose third album just came out)

Animal Collective (ultra-weird but fun and interesting)

Beirut (whom I'd highly recommend)

M.I.A. (in my opinion, a mix of some really great songs and some unlistenable songs).
