More music recs, please!

Suddenly, in the past 24 hours, I have become more interested in pursuing new music than I've been in years. Maybe decades. Yesterday, rikibeth (bless her heart!) gave me a bountiful list of ska recommendations, all of which utterly r0x0r. Now I want more! I started out looking specifically for motivational workout music, and that's still a priority, but I'd love a pointer to anything beautiful or quirky or atmospheric, too. Tell me who your favorite outstanding and interesting artists are. Give me links!

Come on, I know a lot of you folks like to pimp your favorite new finds. Lay it on me.

And while we’re on the subject, you should really check out my husband's stuff if you haven't already done so. He's dreamy :)

Not complete, just the ska i have in itunes at work, and not even all of it. I left out all the Two-Tone stuff, because you should already have it.(specials, madness, the beat, bodysnatchers, etc)
Check out the Studio One and Trojan labels for original Ska. There is also a lot on Island Records but hey are more reggae.
