Guess my tastes fall into the indie pop category- I really love that dreamy pop ala Twin Sister, Letting Up Despite Great Faults and twee stuff like Camera Obscura and Belle and Sebastian. Haven't heard of the Drums or Tennis before, so thanks for the finds OP. Anyone have any more recs for bands like the ones mentioned?

Check out Big Troubles, they're more shoegazey like E For Explosion but they have the same wistfulness that a lot of indie pop/twee bands seem to love. My favorite is the song Minor Keys (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMMtf0YRVGQ) it's got a rare solo in it too! If you like them I'm sure you'll like The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, although I'm not really a fan of their newer stuff (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4itzHRpltQ).

You might also like The Rosebuds. I would place them more with Belle and Sebastian. Here's Go Ahead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxMa7jijgR4

Thanks for the heads up. Big Troubles was a great find, got Romantic Comedy in my rotation now.

Just came across this band in NPR's World Cafe Next 20 from last October. TV Girl comes out of San Diego, they'd fall into that indie pop/chillwave genre. They don't anything too special that stands out from their peers.. but it's pretty cool pop. Benny and the Jetts is a great track. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsdvYG37Ank
If anyone finds other bands of this feel (60s sampling, psychdelic/soul) I'd love to hear some recommendations.
