As usual, here's a couple of seeds to start stations with if you need to change up what you're listening to:
Coleman Hell: This genre-bending musician can give you a station that will drop anywhere from banjo riffs to deep house cuts on you... and that's just from his own music! This station is great for anyone that wants a more varied and eclectic station, but doesn't want to spend the time expanding the station sound by curating it with lots of clicks. Yes, I'm lazy like that.
The Southern Gothic: This group of musicians have put together a damn fine southern rock/country band (yeah, a running theme with me), and it's really sad to me that they haven't gotten more recognition for it. Their station will provide you a nice bit of new alt-country, as well as a strong dose of southern rock (the non-racist Drive-By Truckers type). The Southern Gothic used to go by "Connor Christian & Southern Gothic," but the Connor Christian is still fronting the band despite the name change. They're a solid band to build an alt-country/southern rock station on, so go do it!
