Out of Iowa, Death Ships first caught my attention with the track 'Little Mystery', what with the Band of Horses and My Morning Jacket echo chamber vocals, acoustic guitar and kick-in drums after the quiet lull. With some searching, I found a few other tracks by them that I think get more pop oriented, but you might still be able to find your fix.
No major distribution of the CD is available just yet (unless you live in Iowa City!) but you can send 12 dollars through paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org and get the hook up.
