These New Puritans - Field of Reeds (more and more assured/ambitious/knowledgable with each release)
I think 2013 is one of the better years in music in a long time. I'm not loving the QOTSA album, but there are some gems on there. If I Had a Tail was sweet. The disappointing thing for me about TNP is that when I heard that song Fragment 2 a few months back, I was just waiting and waiting for it to get awesome and it never did. I like the music video a lot though.

Ro Sham Bo is the rockiest envisioning of power-pop and a bit of neo-psych.

His debut solo album is really damn good too.

I agree. It's really good (I'll never tire of the first track "I Live"). Actually, I also really like his second solo album. Since then, he's lost me a little bit, I have to admit. Maybe I just haven't paid close enough attention!?

he's worked with and helped a lot of guys record fantastic albums.

Eric Matthews - It's Heavy In Here : some wonderful baroque pop infused with lots of rock influences.

Brendan Benson's sophomore album was written with Jason Falkner.

He was in the first Jellyfish album, which is quite an album.

Oh yes, liked that first album by Jellyfish, even if I wish he was still a member of the band, when they recorded their second and last album "Spilt Milk", simply because I loved it even more than their debut. And yes, Eric Matthews' "It's Heavy In Here" is great, too. I recall reading about the Brendan Benson album, but never actually got around to listening to it for some reason. I'll have to rectify that.

yeah same goes on the jellyfish front for me. And the brendan benson album is very concise pop, with a definite Falkner sound.

Ro Sham Bo isn't on Spotify though =/

Jellyfish has a really unique sound, for some reason I hear overtones of queen and stuff in the harmonies. I like Jason Falkners stuff because he has a really good touch for power-pop, crunchy guitars, and neat shifts in the songs.

It's Queen, Weezer, Ben Folds (obv before those two but just for reference's sake), and Bubblegum pop all in one. I like it a lot

yeah, i'm a fan.

Other great artists with a similar sound are: Push Kings(if most bands are coined with being influenced by Sgt. Pepper's Beatles period, these guys are much more influenced by either american bubblegum pop, or beatles early period) The Merrymakers, The Posies(more power-pop), The Greenberry Woods( a bit blatant with their harping of the power-pop style), The Wondermints

those are the noteworthy bands I've come across in my search for more well-produced pop-rock.

The Posies

The Posies' "Frosting On The beater" is a great album, probably their most critically acclaimed. However, my personal favorite is "Amazing Disgrace", one of my favorite '90s albums. Still love it to this day.
