The Sun: The Band

Solar associations aside, the band The Sun is entirely worth listening to. They combine a catchy pop-rock (not the kind that kills you when you drink soda) style with a slightly indie edge to create a sound that is creative without being alienating. Their debut full length album "Blame It On the Youth" is actually an mp3 dvd which is one of the worst ideas ever, but includes plenty of videos that make it worth checking out. The Sun is best experienced live, where their frantic, passionate energy (not unlike two porcupines goin' at it) is contagious, and the rawness of the songs make them much more enjoyable than the more refined studio versions. Checkout "Must Be You", "Pavement Jive" and "Valentine".
