Default help me find music

this is what I'm looking for:

music that is well produced, with full-on bass, that's chill, and has vocals that preferably aren't too grating. something along the lines of:

tv on the radio
dandy warhols
massive attack
some of moby's better songs
radiohead (along the lines of kid a... everything in it's right place)

basically something really chill that I can turn up all the way and have it not sound like **** and make my room shake. something with lots of textures and layers of sound.

see what you can come up with

Ever heard of a band called Pylon? , came from the same time & place as REM & The B52s.
They're female fronted typicaly jangly post punk indie rock.

Gotan Project
Sneaker Pimps
The Brian Jonestone Massacre
Morcheeba
Hum
Boards of Canada
Minus the Bear
Band of Horses (I don't like them that much but they're chill as ****)
Failure

I could go on for a while, but this should be enough to suit your fancy. And I second swim's Faraquet suggestion.

Bark Psychosis and Talk Talk might be what you're after. Talk Talk's last album is really chill, has nice vocals, and is one of the best produced albums ever. Bark Psychosis is similar but with more emphasis on bass, but I find their vocalist gets a litte annoying after a while. Good bands, though.

Certain parts of Fugazi's The Argument are perfect for the vibe you're describin' as well. It's so well produced, cool bass as always, and with some really chill moments. Of course there are some shoutier moments too though, so it won't work as a whole album for ya.

The Feelies are pretty great too, but I think you know them. In fact, I'm sure I downloaded their album Crazy Rhythms from you about a year ago or sumthin'. You've probably heard all of these.
