What’s Worth Listening To?

It occurs to me that I could stand to get some new music. I haven't bought a new CD in, like, forever. And I'm not one of those Evil Internet Pirates, I just haven't been paying attention to what's out there very closely.  So now my music collection is kinda boring.

I already know one album I want to pick up, but I could use some suggestions as to others. So sound off in the comments: what's worth listening to these days? 

(Note: don't worry too much about whether or not the genres you like are genres I'll like. I'll try just about anything once.)

Niacin. Billy Sheehan of Mr. Big and David Lee Roth’s solo band fame has an electric jazz trio with a Hammond organ/piano player and an absolutely phenomenal drummer.
Also, Richard Leo Johnson’s solo guitar, particularly “The Legend of Vernon McAlister”. Kinda bluegrass-influenced avant garde, but very musical.

From South of the Border I’d recommend:
Soda Stereo – El Ultimo Concierto, particularly Persiana America and De Musical Ligera
