alright duder, its early but these bands are along my expertise.

 

764-HERO - awesome band with that subpop/up records sound (especially up). pretty guitar and vocal heavy indie rock. nothing too too out of the ordinary.

 

dismemberment plan - pop/punk? emo? indie rock? just get some of it its really interesting music. hard at times, and sometimes they even use processed beats giving it a weird dubbed sound. also fall under my impression of being "post punk" biting guitars with less punk vocals.

 

archers of loaf - i dont know if im going out of my way, but archers of loaf fits into my idea of "post punk" rock scene of the 90s. distorted guitar, loud multiple vocals. just rock and roll.

 

halo benders - i cant say enough about these guys. pure lo fi indie noise. its calvin (from dub narcotic) and doug from built to spill (and caustic resin...its like six degrees here). multiple vocals, the droning of calvin and the high pitch of doug over really jangly repetitive beats...but its not boring.

 

caustic resin - reminds me of built to spill, but thats because they share members. stripped down but not necessarily "lo fi" indie rock. on the rock side of things with bts.

 

death cab for cutie - smooth soothing indie rock. great vocals and great hooks and weird guitar solos

 

pedro the lion - people call them emo, but i hate that term im giong to call them indie rock. their guitar sometimes reminds me of a built to spill or a more together pavement. vocals are slack but bright at the same time. good music to listen all the way through and relax to for the most part...

 

 

i dont konw if these help but its my initial impression of some of the bands you listed. ill drop you an email sometime about some stuff.
