If you're looking for some new music, try the BellRays.

This is maximum rock ’n’ soul, the gospel according to the BellRays: It’s all about pursuing that elusive and sublime moment where the words and the music and the mood come together in an electrifying jolt that makes you gloriously aware of both infinity and your own mortality. Or something like that.
