Suggest some good bands/artists?

I can't seem to find any decent bands to listen to, and I'm getting sick of listening to the same songs over and over. So, any decent bands out there? Please, no pretty pop, screamo, or death metal stuff. Just good. Good music. If you could specify what songs are good by that particular band, that'd be even better.

Some of my favourite bands/artists at the moment:

Paramore

Jack's Mannequin

Ron Pope (if you haven't already, listen to his song "A Drop in the Ocean"

Phantom Planet

Katy Perry

And that is honestly all I've been listening to lately.

    Hey! I like Paramore and Jack's Mannequin!

    My current favorite band is Ludo. They've got a really unique sound because they've got a Moog player (a fancy keyboard/synthesizer thing) and really awesome lyrics. Here's their new single: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMCUinpSJGE
