MusicFilter: I decided to explore new territory in the new year. I want to discover at least one new artist a week and I'm kind of lost...(come inside to the dance!)

My problem is not finding new musicians. It's figuring out which CDs are most representative of their oeuvre. I've been liking the perky French pop of Les Sans Culottes
and Serge Gainsbourg lately as well as the bossa-dance sounds of Brazilian Girls
. My friend recommended Vienna Teng
and while she sounds too much like Tori Amos for my taste, I like it.
Ultimately, I'd like to know what bands along these lines (the more independent/obscure, the better!) I should be listening to and which albums I should own.
Other favorites to give you an idea of what I like are The Cure, The Arcade Fire, TV on the Radio and Belle and Sebastian.
