Postrock, maybe? like Maserati, or something. Start with "Inventions for the New Season." If you want it a bit lower-fi and chill, go with "The Language of Cities", if you want it cleaner and kinda catchier, try "Passages"

Hard rock, blues, garage, punk... Garage sounds like King Khan, you could try him. My sister's a big fan. She also likes Thee Oh Sees, so you could try that.
Interpol looks good from what you listen to--go through their stuff chronologically, starting with Turn on the Bright Lights.
If you wanna try modest mouse, go with "The Moon and Antarctica" and "Lonesome Crowded West" if you want it poppier try later albums like "Good News for People Who Love Bad News", and if you want it grungier and more... meth-addicted in the backwoods of washington state... go backwards to Interstate 8 and This is a Long Drive With Nothing to Think About.
uhhhh fuck.

For more punkish, a favourite of mine is The Offspring, try Self Esteem and Come out and play ( keep'em seperated ).

Maybe also for some folk rock/punk, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, try their earlier stuff like Brother my cup is empty, Papa won't leave you Henry and Thirsty Dog. ( Newer stuff is also great but, different. )

You might also like the Talking Heads. They're uuh... weird. A mix of rock, electronic, soul and a lot of things. Try Psycho Killer, Slippery People, Road to Nowhere and actually anything else.

I could go on for hours, but let's leave it with this.

Edit: Above poster is awesome, Modest Mouse are brilliant. Their newest album is also great. No One's first and you're next. Check out the song King Rat.
Are you ready? Well I made my bet
Are you ready? I made some.. preparations.
Are you ready? But I'm older now!
But are you ready? Yeah...

Also, don't feel you have to restrict yourself to this thread, there's tonnes of threads in this subforum and they're all about music that you could potentially listen to.

The post-rock stuff isn't exactly what I was thinking of, but is pretty good still. I'm getting some serious Meddle-era Pink Floyd vibes (that's a good things!)

Also, Dasboard, I know most of those bands, and like them a lot (save for the Offspring. I never could like 90's punk that much.)

Rolling Stones (I would just do best of), Velvet Underground (Velvet underground and nico., Velvet Underground for more mellow), Creedence Clearwater Revival (just do best of for them too...you'll recognize and love their songs), the Doors (the Doors)

Thanks, though I already love all of those bands. If it's been played on the radio a few times, I know it. Thanks, though.

Take a risk and listen to Portugal. The Man's album Waiter: 'You Vultures!'.
