sonic youth and the pixies are amazing
also the flaming lips' earlier stuff for some really weird and awesome alt.

You will probably like the Album Rubberneck by The Toadies

You'll probably like The Arcade Fire as well, and since you like Radiohead and Muse, you'll love Jeff Buckley if you don't already listen to him.
