I love the Focker demo sounds so garage-rock, you can find it on youtube. Remember being 16 and playing it on my constantly to my friends off my shitty Sony Ericsson phone speaker and even then them being blown away.
Well shit. I got quickly tired of Franz Ferdinand and Bloc Party, but this album I always come back to and check for new ones. Then notice the "drummer" hit on google and... fuck. This album is a god damn hook from end to end.

@Prizonsex sadly, there's not ,many good indietronica bands out there now. I would suggest Apes and Androids 1st and foremost. Also Men, Women and Children. But both, like LotP, are long since broken up. Brian from Apes and Androids at least still making music under the name Majestyy (with 2 y's). The only band I can think of who also falls into the style a bit is fellow UK band THE CHAP.
