My buddy turned me on to Alexi Murdoch way back when. It took a while to really appreciate how awesome he is. You’ve heard his music on TV a lot (most prominently, Orange Sky as the theme from that police show that got canned on NBC earlier in the year).
This is All My Days off his earlier short album (Four Songs). The new one (Time Without Consenquences) that he released this year is phenomenal as well. He doesn’t have any music videos, but does have a few Tubed non-official videos. I went with a live performance of All My Days.

Below linked is the medley music video from White Lies promoting their album To Lose My Life, which you can buy from Amazon here or on iTunes. Although my favorite band remains Air Traffic, WL is fast catching them.
They’ve been touring with Kings of Leon and are sort of a prepubescent arena rock band. I think if you mixed KOL with the Killers and through in a little Bowie you’d get White Lies. I’m dying to see them live but my tickets fell through when they were last in New York. Their entire album is fantastic and really flows through together.
The video below gives a great overview of their entire album and is chilling in a sort of Pink Floyd meets indie rock kind of way. The album itself is fantastic. I’m not sure I have any particular track that stands out, because it’s the type of album that flows together organically and really ought not be segmented (though a couple of tracks are on my iPod shuffle for working out).
