    Banks is great. Not got loads of stuff out yet, but an album’s coming soon apparently. She’s also pretty good live. Check out her soundcloud for more:

    i’d give Simone White a try if you want some sunday morning-esque type of tunes.

    or Susheela Ramen if you want some Asian female vocals with a slight western cross over

    Haim’s latest album is really great.
    Lorde is my new hero.
    The Distillers, featuring Brody Dalle, are/were ace.

    London Grammar and Daughter, but I notice DezB has recommended those already.

    I also like Beth Orton, particularly Central Reservation.

    I’m rather enjoying setting several of these youtube links going simultaneously, the first two on page 2 almost work together.

    I love Emmy the Great… Nu-folky, quite a lightweight voice but she uses it so well, she could probably freeze your blood with it. First Love’s one of the few albums I really listen to front to back

    Regina Spektor is about 9/10ths awful and 1/10ths amazeballs. You can almost feel the switch in each release- “Right record company, I’ve now recorded the 3 listenable tracks for the album that I’m contractually obliged to. The next 7 tracks will be wailing, random barking noises, me doing my brass band impression, and an extended remix of Regina Shouts At The Bins” Worth the effort though IMO

    Wow no body mentioned the Bellrays or Howling Bells.

    Actually someone might of but can’t see the youtube links in work.

    Give Fire on the Moon by the Bellrays a go, awesome track.

    Pigface mentioned Howling Bells, who, as it happens, have a new album soon, and their new single is today’s MPFree on Lauren Laverne’s show on 6Music.

    Don’t know if Lamb have been mentioned as work blocks Youtube. Albums are a bit patchy but the tracks Gorecki and Gabriel are great so they’re forgiven 😀

    Some niche-tastic suggestions above by the way – I think ‘unvarnished folk’ is my fave…

    Premier Icon failedengineer

    Whoa there …. What about Joni Mitchell?!! Sandy Denny?

    and for the younger ones, Trembling Bells (Lavinia Blackwood)?

    Plus, as already listed, PJ Harvey, Thea Gilmore, Beth Orton.

    Not sure if these have been mentioned yet, Tarja is by far the best of their three female vocalists

    Valerie june – i Like this one – good pairing with john forte (fugees), but not sure about some of her own stuf – a bit too much like a blues dolly Parton at times, but this is great
