Maggie is in love with Patrick Wolf, it's a shame that she doesn't live in the UK, as it looks like he'll be touring in support of his new album, Lupercalia, released on June 20th.
I don't have the album, but I did read about it - apparently it was called The Conqueror as part of his double-album Battle. The tile and concept was changed to Lupercalia because Wolf thinks his songs are mostly about love pop songs:
Fans will want to look for a special deluxe edition of Lupercalia. See him on tour this year:

Los Lobos (which means "The Wolves" in Spanish) are a multiple Grammy Award–winning rock band. They've been around since the late 70s and their music is a blend of Mexicana and American rock.
Los Lonely Boys will be touring with Los Lobos until August 10th, but it's a really good lineup, especially because the two band have a similar Latin-Rock-Soul sound to them. Since Los Lonely Boys' debut in 2003, they've been selling millions of records and singles, and even playing and recording music with legendary performers like Willie Nelson and Carlos Santana. Look for Los Lonely Boys' latest album, Rockpango, if you see them on tour.

I actually really love The Real Tuesday Weld, I gave his last album The London Book of the Dead a terrific review. If you've never heard of this guy, Stephen Coates, takes old 1930s records and put electronic beats to them, creating what he calls "Antique Beats". It's great, I love it.
The Real Tuesday Weld's latest album is called The Last Werewolf, released July 12th via Six Degrees Records. The sample song they sent out is called "Me and Mr Wolf".

WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM
Soup reviewed Wolves in the Throne Room's Two Hunters and live show (which looks really fun).
The latest news from Southern Lords Recordings is that they are putting the final touches on their fourth album, Celestial Lineage. All details and tour dates can be found here.
Look for Celestial Lineage to be out on September 13, 2011.
This looks like a fairly new band from San Diego. The information I got was that they are "an experimental electronic group into a mature band with a strong sense of pop melody.
The song sent to me is "Tell Me Why" from their upcoming EP. Since that's pretty much it, that's not a whole lot to work with (especially since the EP is unnamed and no artwork).
