That's all I know. Where in the the discography to go from here, say you boardies?
Other than the two you mentioned I only know To Bring You My Love and Let England Shake but of those four my personal favourite by far is To Bring You My Love. Nearly every song on that album is an absolute CHOOOOON. ("Meet Ze Monsta" and "Send His Love to Me" in particular). So yeah, go with that. :)

Rid of Me also appears to be highly rated, so that'll probably be the next one I listen to.

To Bring You My Love is one of my fave albums of all time. It's fantastic. Let England Shake might be my second fave album of hers too.

Her run of Rid of Me -> TBYML -> Is This Desire -> SFTCSFTS is remarkably consistent.

Foster the People - Supermodel

Loved their first one (the rest is much different to Pumped up Kicks, though it's pop-iness might still put a lot of people off)

This probably isn't as good but it's got some good tunes on it, have a feeling it'll grow on me more though with a few listens.

Best Friend is as good as anything they've done:

Have seen a lot of people here banging on about Sharon van Etten. Listened to this track and think I'll be listening to a lot more of her

Galaxie 500 are the best thing ever. Have you listened to that OOIOO album?

I really have to get around to giving that a proper listen.

Listening to Yeasayer - Fragrant World today, sounds like it got pretty panned at release but i'm enjoying it a lot.
