Gimme dem sweet recs

Found lots of great new music lately. Help me out in finding even more! Anything that springs to mind due to any albums on this list will do. Particularly I've been looking for bands with strong vocals but as you can see this is not necessarily a requirement
1Russian Circles

Post-rock/Post-metal. Instrumental band who cuts the usual "post-" bullshit in favour of really strong and interesting musicianship, and a great ear for melody.
2The Dillinger Escape Plan
One Of Us Is The Killer

Hardcore/Mathcore/Metalcore...idk. Won't deny I'm usually a bit of a pussy when it comes to heavier music but this is awesome. Any similar recs of this quality would be the shit.
Failed States

Punk/Hardcore. Avoid watching interviews with them because I don't wanna be preached at about only eating vegetables or whatever but great music.

Field Report

Indie/Folk/Pop. Worked with Bon Iver on previous projects, his band has gone criminally unnoticed. Really great, atmospheric folk music with lots of reverb and open spaces, plus great vocals and lyrics.
Under Color of Official Right

Post-punk. Just a bunch of normal dudes from Detroit got together and made a punk band that probably should be shitty but somehow are actually fucking great. One of the most unnoticed albums of 2014. Great songs, great lyrics, and the vocals have a certain lovableness to them, even if they border on the out-of-key sometimes.
The Fire in Our Throats Will Beckon...

Post-Metal. Gets a little redundant after a while (and then there'll be a quiet melodic bit. And then it'll build into a big loud crushing bit. And then there'll be a quiet melodic bit. And then it'll build into a big loud crushing bit. And then...) but nice atmospheric music all the same.
Living as Ghosts with Buildings as Teeth

Progressive. One of the best albums of the year so far. Loooove the vocals and the crazy guitar parts. Really interesting songwriting, if a little disjointed.
8Steve Earle
I Feel Alright

Country/Folk/Rock. If anybody out there is at all into alt country like this or Uncle Tupelo or Whiskeytown, gimme dem recs!
