Right now I am reawakening my addiction to Nine in Nails... (and possibly my obsession with Trent Reznor). Not exactly cafe music but I am recovering from 5 months in Central America with constant salsa... can't stand it!
Out of interest - anyone know any alternatives to the godawful Music of the Coffee Lands by Putomayo??? seems like EVERY SINGLE vaguely "alternative" coffee shop plays it, I had to endure it on a daily basis where I used to work...
Obviously, being new to coffee culture, at least urban coffee culture, I have no clue about any of the groups mentioned yet, with the exception of Soundgarden. What do I listen to? It varies....a lot! It might be Barber's Adagio, or Firehouse. Or Def Leppard, Poison, (yeah, I have a thing for hair bands, lol) Recently I heard live, and got to meet a Greek guitarist named Pavlo who hails from Canada. That guy is a genius! His band is incredible, too! Check http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_MROqagTbQ
The Muffs, Dent May, Scarlett Johansson (she has a record covering Tom Waits songs!), Beach House, Starf+cker (don't know if I'm allowed to spell it out =/), American Steel and Lake.
Ratatat, Owl City, new Royksopp, new Death Cab EP, Sara Watkins new solo album, Crystal Castles, Fiction Family, The Decemberists new one.

Yes, love them!
Lately:
DJ Shadow has been nice early in the morning...
Then maybe some St. Germain, Nightmares on Wax, & Massive Attack.
By lunch, we gotta pick it up... Parliment Funkadelic, Jamiroquai, MGMT, and anything that keeps our feet movin'...
Ennio Morricone, Jean Michel Jarre, Conlon Nancarrow, and Lightning Bolt. And Mickey & Sylvia.
i make mixes specifically for work! haha. favorites lately have been: this one deerhunter song, animal collective, the octopus project, the go! team, etc...
perpetual favorites: pixies, pavement, yo la tengo, that dog, etc....
I listen to a lot of bluegrass. It's nice background, but it keeps me moving. I also enjoy Jazz, Tina Brooks is one of my favorites. And there's always Dolly Parton!
TO WORK OUT TO I LISTEN JANE'S ADDICTION AND THE LIKE. CASUAL LISTENING THE DISSOCIATIVES, 2ND AND 3RD ALBUM OF SIVERCHAIR, THE BEATLES, COLDPLAY... IF WANT A LOT MORE I CAN CERTAINLY HELP OUT. ABOUT 10,000 SONG.
MASON CREWS
pandora.com

then i type in anything that is mellowish or whatever i want.
anything from counting crows to explosions in the sky.
(if you dont know what pandora is, you should check it out. basically, what you do is type in a band or a song you like, and then it lets you listen to a bunch of bands/songs that sound like previously typed band/song. its quite a wonderful tool.)
