Favorite 3 or 4 part harmonies
As an exercise in discovering new music, I'm looking for groups that use 3 or 4 part harmonies in their songs ... new stuff, not the (great) oldies like CSNY or the Beach Boys.

Examples of stuff I've found so far:
- "Challengers" by the New Pornographers. Awesome harmonies on the chorus.
- "I Will" by Radiohead off of Hail to the Thief
- A handful of Indigo Girls songs, like "Kid Fears" with Michael Stipe of REM or the live "Water is Wide" with Sarah McLachlan and Jewel.
- Also checked out the group Fleet Foxes. But they don't really click with me.

The Magic Numbers use this I think and also The Polyphonic Spree.

Blue Album era Weezer used this technique. Songs like Holiday and Surf Wax America have fantastic harmonies. They also did a great cover of Don't Worry Baby by the Beach Boys.
