Looking for similar artists!

Basically right now I'm into a few major artists and groups:

-Zero 7
-Death Cab For Cutie / The Postal Service
-Frou Frou
-Iron and Wine
-Damien Rice
-John Mayer
-(most of the stuff played on The OC, in case anybody watches it and knows the kind of music on that.)

So if anybody here has any idea who I'm listing you probably have a general idea of the mellow/deep/emo music I listen to.

So I'm going on a week-or-two long trip with some friends in a couple months and felt I should probably start planning what kind of CDs to be on the lookout for. Anybody got suggestions to good artists with similar styles?

Thanks in advance.
 
The Shins
The Impossibles
Cadet(I don't really like them, but lots of my friends do)
The Impossibles
The Dandy Warhols

and there are some select Weezer songs that would do it for you.

Ooh, copletely forgot about The Shins, my sister has that CD. I'll make sure to hassle her for it.

Does the fact that you listed The Impossibles twice hint that they're greatness? :p

Thanks for the suggestions. Please keep 'em coming everyone -- got a lot of space on my list!

I think it hints at me being on a class 2 opiate.

Are these all artist/band/group names, or are some of them song titles?

Do you ever wonder if some people just make up random band names in threads like these?

Like:
Los Monos Del Mar
The Nightstands
Multivitamin
Humming Fan
Candlewick
The Moxie Men

Ever heard of 'em?

Pretty sure that was Ev_, either way that site is older than dirt.
Yah man, Canadia ain't taking credit for my awesomeness!

But hey, that site's back up now. It was gone for a long time. Now I see why...new version in development.
