Please help me find "current" music that I would like.

The Grammys have come and gone, and I realize now that I know next to nothing about current musical artists. I rarely listen to the radio these days, so I am just not being exposed to very much in the way of new music. My tastes are pretty much all across the board, but they seem to have stabilized in the 70s-90s, and I'm looking for some help in finding what else I might like.
Just naming artists off the top of my head, I like: The Beatles, Paul Simon, Rush, Indigo Girls, REM, Cake, Tori Amos, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Sting, Moxie Fruvous, Melissa Etheridge, Aerosmith, They Might Be Giants, Jonathan Coulton, Kansas, and Queen. That's certainly not a comprehensive list, but I hope it gives a flavor of what I am drawn to in terms of music.
What's out there now? What should I be listening to?
