I am currently listening to Furtips from The Netherlands, I like the description of the band on their website, "Furtips, the band that plays songs which contain guitars, singing, drums and keyboards and some more...maybe." They do have that Pavement thing going for them and among their influences they listed Television Personalities, Wire and Syd Barret.
Furtips - I would rather be catholic now
Furtips - Cigarettes saved my life
More mp3s of theirs can be found here and here
