God damn it I don't know! I absolutely LOVE Car Seat Headrest and Willow Smith, their music and the message behind their songs just brings peace to my mind. Honorable mentions are The Strokes, The Voidz, Crumb, Boogarins, Neil Young, King Krule, Rex Orange County, etc...

Btw, the artwork on my avatar is from an artist called OMOCAT, you should check her out ;)
1. frightened rabbit -- it's my current profile theme. listened to them while i was in a psychiatric hospital after attempting suicide. scott hutchison was some sort of angel. i genuinely believe that. he passed too early, and was so talented, deep, clever, witty and emotional when it came to his song writing. i can't listen to floating in the forth and i wish i was sober without sobbing. i hope he's resting easy now.
2. death cab for cutie -- first ever concert i went to i saw them and frightened rabbit. extremely relatable lyrics, unique sound... they shaped the face of alt, indie and emo rock. put them in the rock and roll hall of fame already you cowards. ben gibbard's sobriety inspired me to quit drinking. i'll always be grateful to this band for that.
3. coldplay -- i chose them purely for nostalgia and the fact that my entire childhood was shaped around this band. i listened to them since i was a little kid. they're always going to be my top three because despite their sound being drastically different now than their earlier music, they have the same messages and same mystical feeling they've always had in my opinion. also chris martin is adorable.
honorable mentions: manchester orchestra (and other projects by andy hull), a day to remember, snow patrol, bright eyes/conor oberst, brand new, imagine dragons, the national, sufjan stevens, kesha, kendrick lamar, elbow, bon iver, jimmy eat world, against me!/laura jane grace, taking back sunday and iron & wine.
1. Jimi Hendrix - I have yet to find a song by Hendrix I remotely dislike. My favorite song is by Hendrix. I would've loved to have gotten a chance to see him play live.
2. David Bowie - Same as Hendrix, don't dislike anything by him. A lot of great songs, I loved all of his different styles.
3. Sturgill Simpson - Sturgill gets some home state love on top of the music he produces. I have really enjoyed seeing his music develop into what it is now. His latest album that dropped about 2 weeks ago is awesome. I've seen him live before and I know I've got to do it again soon.
