Nice list! Totally love Devilskin.

You could add I Am Giant to your list (Rock) - saw them live in Munich. They're amazing!

I'm going to have a look through this when I get a chance. The Phoenix Foundation are immense, really love the track Bitte Bitte. I know they are not lesser known but Flight of The Conchords are my absolute favourites
