Start with "Country Ghetto".....then "Lochloosa".....followed closely by the new one "Orange Blossom".......or hell, you could just take my word for it and get 'em all at once......they're all freakin' killer....
The only one I don't care too much for is "Black Water"......there's some great tunes on it, it's just not nearly as consistent as the other three....
I'll think of some more later.......

I'm gonna keep these reccomendations in the rock world, cuz that seems to be where yer head's at! good! cuz mine is too!
My new favorite straight ahead rock band is Biffy Clyro (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsSqFMNAf2o), a huge-sounding three piece from Scotland. They're getting big, watch out for them.
Getting slightly more out-there would be Manchester's massive 3-guitared, self-proclaimed 'progressive death indie' band Oceansize (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFkyrRqzkIQ). Love these guys, their latest album, Frames, is killer.
More out-there, you say? Boris (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXr1nTsWKYk), Japanese psychedelic punk, sort of like if the Melvins were. well. from Japan. Brace yourself!
OKOK, let's get crazy! Boenox (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8Mm7NVxLmM) is an experimental orchestral group from Belgium. All the players are involved in prestigious Flemish orchestras around the region, but Boenox is their chance to get a little saucy. With confidence, I can say that if you click that link, you'll be the only person in your town, city, and county listening to this group.

I will then go outside the rock world and include "Guitars" by jazz legend McCoy Tyner. Iconic keyboard player who includes tunes with:
It includes a dvd that has 3 hours of footage of McCoy playing with each. Includes Ron Carter on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums. Some VERY cool playing.
