Gotye- saw his video for Somebody That I Used to Know on reddit

Kimbra- she's featured on Somebody That I Used to Know

Miami Horror- Kimbra is featured on some of their songs

Fleet Foxes- Heard of them before but never bothered to listen to them. Helplessness Blues was on episode 434 of This American Life.

Zebda- heard them talking about their new cd, Second Tour, on France inter. They played Le Dimanche Autour De L'Eglise after the interview.

Brigitte Fontaine- heard of her before but never bothered to listen. Heard her duet with Grace Jones and decided to listen to Brigitte Fontaine and Brigitte Fontaine est... and she is awesome.

Gold Panda- listened to You last year when I saw it on disconaievte. Watched a video for Same Dream China an decided to listen to his albums.

Alabama Shakes- saw them on NPR in March, but their cd wasn't out yet. Wears the Trousers reviewed their album this week, so I'm listening now. The jury's still out.

Caibou- similar artist of Gold Panda

Four Tet- similar artist of Gold Panda

Philip Glass- 1st cousin once removed of Ira Glass. There was an article about him on npr- didn't read it, checked out his music instead. So far I've only listened to Koyaanisqatsi, the soundtrack to the eponymous experimental film.

Steve Reich- he's listed as an influence for Bat for Lashes. Like Philip Glass, he composes minimal music.

DJ Spooky- mentioned in a quote on Steve Reich's wiki page. Like the title of his album, Songs of a Dead Dreamer, so gave it a listen.

The Orb- mentioned in the same quote on Steve Reich's wiki page.

Ennio Morricone- he's one of GustaveFlaubert's top artists, so I looked him up. He scored dozens of movies, even The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

Flying Lotus- one of the popular artists tagged idm. He was the only black person under the tag, so I thought I'd check him out. He's John Coltrane's grand nephew.

Pogo- saw this on reddit:

عمر دياب- heard El Alem Alah in Seres Queridos

Juliette Gréco- Déshabillez-moi was on fillessourires.com

Grace Potter & The Nocturnals- heard Nothing But the Water (I) in the commercial for the show Last Resort
