It's nice to hear someone has similar tastes. Thank-you for the excellent recommendations!
You're welcome. There is a thread on Animal Collective here, a thread on Tame Impala here, and I would expect you'd also like Grizzly Bear, which I started a thread here a while ago. Those are my "Big 3" of recent bands. There are others I like, but to me those are the standouts.

As for older music you may not have heard, if you like the Beatles I can practically guarantee you will like Todd Rundgren's Something/Anything album. It is, IMO, the best double-album ever. I had a college roommate get me into this album (waaay back in the mid-80's) and it's been a staple of my listening ever since. A few goofy songs on the album, but otherwise not a bad song at all.



EDIT: BTW, Todd Rundgren is also a big influence on Kevin Parker. In fact, if you listen to the first song in the video above, you'll notice the main melody is very similar to part of the 2nd half of Mind Mischief on the previous page.

It was late, last night
I was feeling something wasn't right ...

Kinda sounds old-timey. Vocalist sounds a little bit like Mike Love from The Beach Boys.
Had never heard this band before. Sounds like an interesting (and odd) mixture of early Beatles and punk rock.

I highly recommend his albums The Point!, Aerial Ballet and Knnillssonn.

I remember Me and My Arrow from a 70's commercial for the Plymouth Arrow.

One of the best 'live' bands ever, Jo Jo Gunne.

Wow, didn't expect to see this thread bumped again! I'm familiar with most of the bands you mentioned, but you've reminded me that I should really check out Cream one of these days.
