Are you a fan of incredible pop music?

Ever since high school, I've been a huge fan of Guster. I've seen them live a handful of times; I skipped school once to go to a concert. The music is genuinely feel-good without being saccharine or repetitive. All of their albums are great, but Lost and Gone Forever is perfect from beginning to end. Go, uh, buy Guster albums.

I saw one of their albums in Borders once. I was attracted to it because it had a fuzzy bear on it, which was cool. Didn't buy or listen to it though :\

My feel good music is generally some good old Parliament. Never fails.

parliament's sweet, too. the bear album (parachute) is a little lo-fi for me... not really their best.

Is there anything you can compare Guster to? For some reason I get a jam band vibe from them.

not jammy in the least... i'd say like sufjan stevens but less 'precious', or like of montreal. try sonicx.com, they'd probably have a few free downloads. "jesus on the radio", "two points for honesty", and "the great escape" are probably my favorite songs on their respective albums.
