Andy Rehfeldt

Andy Rehfeldt's arrangements (and video synch-ups) of well-known songs are fantastic. For some, I like them better the original (Green Day video below)...

Rammstein - Du Hast (bossa nova)


Alice in Chains - Man in the Box (Funk)


Green Day - Basket Case (bossa nova)

Joseph

Joseph is a trio of sisters who sing some great harmonies.  While I don't mind their more pop songs, I prefer their recordings where it's just them singing with an acoustic guitar, where their vocal timber and harmonies are more in the forefront.

Daughter

I really liked Daughter's album, If you leave. Haven't had the chance to take a listen to their new album.

Miya Folick

Got the darker 90's Indie vibe. Really dig this.

Leon Bridges

I'm not really a fan of Leon Bridges' overtly retro-soul videos, since they really set himself up for comparisons that he can't quite come close to. With that said, from what I see of the simpler videos, he seems like he'd put on a pretty good live show.

The Whispers

If I were to direct a comedy film, I'd likely use one of the Whispers' songs in addition to draw inspiration from their videos and dance moves.
