The Octopus Project is a personal favorite of mine. Their album Hello, Avalanche, is one of the most consistently fun and addictive albums I've ever heard. Their sound is a mixture of analog and electronic instrumentation, with an extremely solid rhythm section that faithfully drives every song.

The video is for the song Truck.

Black Moth Super Rainbow is another band along the same lines as The 
Octopus Project, though a bit more experimental and laid back. They 
collaborated with The Octopus Project on a split album entitled The 
House of Apples and Eyeballs, but I have been unable to get a 
hold of it yet. They have a new album on the way entitled Eating Us. 
Anyway, enjoy the video and the mp3s.
