Azure Ray has a beautiful sound. I really like "Dragonfly." I like Tilly and the Wall too. A terrific way to find new indie music is to subscribe to Paste magazine. Each issue comes with a 17-20 song sampler CD and most of them are pretty awesome. The Elected, Blake Sennet of Rilo Kiley's side project, is terrific, really mellow. I saw them live when they first got started and it was a great show. She & Him (Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, respectively) is a terrific duo who just put out their first album in March this year. It's really hard for me to talk about "unknown" bands because most of the bands I like are unknown around here but in places with even a mediocre scene they're probably old hat.
