Default Anyone have any infectious pop confection recommendations?

Hi! I'm looking for some album recommendations. I'm looking for stuff in the indie-pop/rock range that is extremely infectious, or "pop confections" so to speak. Buelah, the Cardigans' "Life", Apples in Stereo's "Funtrick..." come to mind. But stuff that doesn't get too pretentious or experimental or cheesy sounding. It doesn't all have to be positive and upbeat, it can be bittersweet as well. The Apples later albums just sound like the Beatles... same with Of Montreal. Just good solid indie pop/rock that has good pop-sensibility. Thanks!!

I tend to use to discover and download, but I still haven't found material that surpasses the artists I mentioned... (bands that show up in the "like artist suggestions" for example)

I was dead. This was hell. There were no demons, no hellfire or brimstone, just a deep, complete feeling of darkness and hopelessness. This was the never-ending void. Not at all how I had imagined it, but worse than I thought that it could have been.

Infectious? You need some twee pop. My suggestions:

Tullycraft (any)
Architecture In Helsinki - In Case We Die
The Softies - It's Love
All Girl Summer Fun Band - self-titled (the best for last).

Anything by Stereolab or Imitation Electric Piano.

Also i`d recommend Teenage Fanclubs Grand Prix album & Primal Scream's Sonic Flower Groove

Urb's RYM Stuff

Most people sell their soul to the devil, but the devil sells his soul to Nick Cave.
