I will have to listen to Santogold, I keep hearing good things about them. I still haven't heard Vampire Weekend too, so that's another one to look for! Same with Jenny Lewis!!

How does the latest TV On The Radio compare to their last one?

The Okkervil River CD is INDEED impressive. I also liked "Rook" by Shearwater quite a bit.
