I'll toss out a few names...
If you haven't heard, check out a band "Spoon"
also Saul Williams is great...
For something a littel heavier try Snot, a groove/stoner metal band with some ska vibes and some sort of bluesy breakdowns. Also Unearth if you are in the mood for something heavy... killer riffs! :)
As for more Chill sutff, there's The Cat Empire, ska/salsa/reggae Aussie band with horn section and all...
Manu Chao - Really cool dude, sings in English, Spanish and French, very different but great sun-shine music!
Zero-7 - Elctro-chill type stuff, very cool.

More Chill/Hip-Hop type stuff:

Damian Marley - Welcome to Jamrock
Liquid Soul - Blues fusion type hip-hop. look for newer albums
Danger Doom - Don't know much about, but cool and has Aqua Teen Hunger Force samples, how bad could it be!
Also Zach de la Rocha from Rage Against The machine has some assorted tracks floating around on the net, they're all decent, I just like 'em cause it's so good to hear Zach again! mmmm reunion...


Last but not least my rock-ish types to suggest would be:
John Mayer Trio - Try! - Live Blues album, very very good, not like his pop stuff.

She Wants Revenge - You've probably heard that song with the line "as I whisper in your ear, 'I want to fucking tear you apart'" in the monotonus voice... well they're allright.

The Black Keys - two guys who used to do landscapping for a living and suddenly hit it big, indie-style. Just two guys, guitar and drums. very stripped down but bluesy.

The Raconteurs
- Jack White and friends, I'm digin' it.


There you go, what can I say, I've got spare time :) Hope this helps... who am I kidding I just love any excuse to talk music ;)

Spearhead, awesome. I just recently got some bootlegs of early Beatnigs shows. Very different from Franti's later stuff!

Still with beats, if you like reggae as well, you've got to hear anything produced by Lee Scratch Perry. ("Arkology" is a pretty awesome collection, and if nothing else you'll get to find out where the Clash's "Police and Thieves" came from).

Lately I've been fascinated by some Japanese psychedelia (largely instrumental): Ha-Za-Ma, with Michio Kurihara. Hard to find, but absolutely fantastic. In the same vein:

13th Floor Elevators.

Spacemen 3.

And on the subject of vaguely improvisational, but also jazzy, heady, and interesting:

Can.

Tortoise.

And freakier, heavier, but also amazing:

Swans.

Neurosis.

Red Sparowes.
