Lots of stuff released in the last few years, there is still good music being made outside of prog - just have to find it and perhaps be open minded..

Lorde - Green Light (amazing vocal arrangements from this Kiwi youngster, and I hear a little Joni Mitchell in her writing) - love when the piano chords and bass drum kick in
Twenty One Pilots - Tear In My Heart (keys/drums duo - good sense of humor "You fell asleep in my car, I drove the whole time, but that's OK I'll just avoid the holes so you sleep fine; I'm driving here I sit, cursing my government, for not using my taxes to fill holes with more cement" haha
Kongos - Come With Me Now - killer accordion riff, you will be tapping your feet
Dirty Heads - Celebrate - BEAUTIFUL lyrics. All about gratitude.
Blackfoot - Morning Dew - majestic song
Rag'n'bone Man - Human - kick ass soulful song
Alice Merton - Hit The Ground Running - pretty good straight rock
K Flay - Blood In The Cut - killer bass riff, bit of a psycho chick, best lyrical moment: "It'd just be safest if you ran, fuck, that's what they all just end up doing in the end" and it sounds sincere
Kinks - Living On A Thin Line - thanks to Sei for this suggestion, old fave from the 80's
Huey Lewis - Walking On A Thin Line - surprisingly deep song about Vietnam vets from my college years. OK, done commenting (mostly)
Lucy Dacus - Next of Kin
Airborne Toxic Event - Sometime Around Midnight ("and your friends say what is it, you look like you've seen a ghost?")
Arctic Monkeys - Four Out Of Five (David Bowie-ish)
Missio - Middle Fingers (Defiance)
Beach House - Drunk In LA (maybe I've been there)
Comets On Fire - Wild Whiskey
Green Day - Bang Bang
Iceage - Hurrah
Greta Van Fleet - Highway Tune
Arcade Fire - Creature Comforts
Celestial Navigations - Lunch Stop (you've been living in the here and now)
The Sonics - Strychnine
Sweet - Ballroom Blitz
Widespread Panic - Shut Up and Drive
Bjork - Atom Dance
Ani Difranco - Knuckle Down - she can play guitar as well as she can emote
Sheryl Crow - God Bless This Mess - beautiful song
Neil Young - Ordinary People - amazing how many decades he is kicking ass
