Maybe it is just me, or what but they are a pretty big and well known band.

And I'd say that about 70% of the bands listed on here are at least somewhat known. Seriously, hoobastank unknown?!?
With that I'll unleash my list in sections of styles (must listens in bold):
*These Arms Are Snakes --> spazzy indie rock. members of isis and a few other bands
*Minus the Bear
--> melodic rock, former guitarist of Botch and members of sharks keep moving(seriously listen to this)
*Sharks Keep Moving
--> melodic indie rock
*Q and Not U
--> politically charged dance party!
*Kill Sadie --> just listen
*Faraquet --> math rock
--> mathcore, best thing since sliced bread (RIP)
--> gloom/drudge metal...sick
*Horse the Band
--> spazzy Nintendo-core. seriously 8-bit + metal.
*Fall of Troy --> fast guitars, kinda screamo voice
--> gloom metal - instrumental
*Mastadon --> recently signed: maybe you will know them soon
*Mike Patton --> see Fantomas, Dillenger Escape Plan, Mr.Bungle, Faith No More
*DNTEL --> pre-postal service
*Japanther --> sample based indie
*Ratatat --> guitar based electro
--> as heard on [adult swim]
*Boards of Canada
--> damn good IDM
*Prefuse 73 --> electronic
*Del tha Funkee Homosapien
(any project) --> aka: Deltron 3030, Hieroglyphics, Gorillaz, etc
*Quasimoto --> thin/small voice, phat beats
Sleepy Time Gorilla Museum --> Halloween comes to life
and these are just the favorites...
