i do. something along the lines of the above, Of Montreal and bits of My Morning Jacket and Bands Of Horses.
the weakerthans do a good line of powerpoppish stuff thats not too emo. they're also canadian. try 2003's Reconstruction Site.
would be a predictable choice...
it clearly would. As was about to say just that.
as was i!
They founded the Elephant 6 collective of which Of Montreal were members. Dusk at Cubist Castle is a pop masterpeice.

Download jumping fences.
i was about the say that as well.
Elf Power too.
The Russian Futurists
any particular songs?
ted leo and the pharmacists?
the mendoza line?
first time I've seen the Weakerthans mentioned on this site, I think.
Reconstruction Site is an amazing album, and it's exactly what you requested. Get it! Get the track 'Reconstruction Site' or 'Psalm For The Elk's Lodge Last Call' for starters...
you could try Rogue Wave, if you've not heard them already.
I seem to remember Adie posting news about them quite a lot at one stage.
Speaking of bands that having been metioned on here in a while:
Saves the Day.
the tracks are for a DJ set, and 'Endless Shovel' is already on :)
but you could always try Astrid, Astronaut, the Shazam or Myracle Brah.
Aside from AC Newman, try Jont (myspace.com/onelongsong), Trapper Blitzen, Rogue Wave et al...
or maybe that's Blitzen Trapper?
The Presidents Of The United States Of America!
maritime - we, the vehicles
ted leo + pharmacists - hearts of oak
