Recommend some music based on this song list...

I'll admit I know very little about modern music outside what I occasionally hear in a movie or on my commute. So I rarely remember song titles or artists but every once in a while something sticks.

So based on these songs I do recall--which I think all have a certain similar sound/style to them--recommend some additional music for me to check out:

"Another Story" - The Head and the Heart
"Ho Hey" - The Lumineers
"I and Love and You" - The Avett Brothers

And in a slightly different vein:

"Simple Song" - The Shins
"The Walker" - Fitz and the Tantrums

Thanks so much for any input.

Okay, I'm gonna plug The Way Down Wanderers; my cousin's the bass player but also I really dig them.

Of Monsters and Men - Mountain Sound

Conor Oberst - Till St. Dymphna Kicks Us Out

Radical Face - Cellar Door (Secrets)

First Aid Kit - My Silver Lining

The New Pornographers - High Ticket Attractions (sounds similar to the Fitz and the Tantrums tune to me)

I love the Shins, and also like the Lumineers. Artists I would recommend include Squeeze, The Decemberists and Cold War Kids, in addition to mentioned Of Monsters & Men.

I'll throw Whitehorse, Shaky Graves, and if you want a little more pop, The Ting-Tings.. Also, The Fratellis.
