I enjoyed Notwist couple of months ago here in Zagreb, two-night show. They were much better live than on the record. That means something, as Neon Golden is remarkable CD. I liked it because live, they sounded more like singer-songwriter's band: the lading man (Mark?) was singing and playing guitar, with many acoustic intros, and band was also in singer-songwriters' mood, equipped with some synths and pro-tools. Ah yes, I have plenty of photos taken with cellar phone:-)

According to the list above, you probably did try Nick Cave or Tom Waits, or Interpol and Coldplay. Try Martha Wainwright, or Ryan Adam's recent album Love Is Hell - the closest equivalent to Nick Drake ever! I also suggest The Woven Hand...

Wow, that's really cool. I'd love to see them live myself!
And yes I did try Nick Cave, I have the Boatman's Call. It's really good.
What other album from him can you recomend. He has so many that sound different. Is there another that's more like the Boatman's Call.
Also Tom Waits has alot, I've been meaning to try him out but I don't know which one to start off with.

Cave's No More Shall We Part (2001) is my favourite Cave's record. It's pretty "cohenised" (female back ups, religious themes, violin). If you liked Boatman's Call, this one could be acceptable for you. Those two are his best records.

I second Tom with No More Shall We Part. It's my favorite too. Don't like the follower Nocturama very much though.

If you like Sigur Ros, maybe you'll like A Silver Mt.Zion. Great post-rock band, mostly instrumental with sometimes choirs.

Also, into the depressive way:

John Cale - Music For A New Society
Mark Lanegan - Whiskey For The Holy Ghost (a masterpiece, folk-country style, a little darker)
« Pour que nos vies s'illuminent » (Maryse Letarte)

Oh, yeah I forgot to mention R.E.M. I love them! I have all of their albums.
I also have some Velvet Underground, David Bowie, Lou Reed, and a couple of songs from Neil Young.
He's another artist that I've been meaning to get to but I don't know which album to start with? Which is a good one from Neil Young?

I'm always recommending Paul Westerberg's work. I'd go with STERIO/MONO for an introduction to some very amazing songwriting. Afterwords I'd recommend THE MOUNTAIN GOATS album The Sunset Tree. It is the latest in there catalog and is a good place to start.

Cannot recommend Richard Hawley enough. Brilliant romantic somgwriting and one of the best tragic, soulful voices around.

I'd recommend "Closing Time" and "Blue Valentine"
We weren't lovers like that and besides it would still be alright...
