The stuff I keep coming back to on my iPod includes:

The Coal Porters, "The Land of Hope and Crosby", the leader of this outfit 
is a Byrds/Tillman scholar, and that influences the music. I'm in love 
with "Imperial Beach". It displaced Anya and Xander's duet from the Buffy 
Musical as the song wedged in my head.

Beastie Boys, "The In Sound From Way Out", instrumentals, you've heard 
this stuff if you have "Check Your Head".

Chris and Tad, "Hand Me That Door", Presidents' lead singer's home studio 

Chemical Bros, "Let Forever Be", oh man... cool video.

Reptile Palace Orchestra, "Hwy X", Balkan funk from Madison, Wisconsin.

Anthony Brown's Asian American Jazz Orchestra, "Monk's Moods", Y'evah hear 
"Crepuscule with Nellie" played on a koto? It's a perfect instrument to 
play Monk.

Glover Gil and the Tosca Tango Orchestra, Soundtrack from "Waking Life".

Beach Boys, "Pet Sounds"

The Golden Palominos, "Pure", Lori Carson's voice is sexual desire 
incarnate. Do they sell that in a bottle?

And I'd be remiss if I didn't continue to hype Amy Rigby's stuff, and the 
Broun Fellinis, Liquid Soul, and XTC's "Black Sea".

You can get a surprising number of these albums on eMusic.
