I just heard this song and absolutely loved it.

It's called "The Kids Were Wrong" by Memoryhouse, and sounds like a combination of Of Monsters And Men, The Smashing Pumpkins, and The Flaming Lips, plus a little extra. Apparently, the band falls under the genre of "dream pop" which I've never heard of before, but I'm intrigued. It's definitely a distinct sound.

Thoughts? Anyone know groups that are particularly good or well known in this genre? Here is a possible list to jog your memories:

I second that Last.fm is a good site to get music recommendations. It basically takes your iTunes' (or whatever software you're using to listen to music) play history and runs collaborating filtering.

Just started using a friend's spotify account and it's awesome. $5/month with a .edu email and $10 otherwise. Well worth it for the mobile streaming. Hypem is pretty cool too for staying up-to-date with newer releases.
