The Man With The Glasses
Le Man Avec Les Lunettes is, in their own words, "an Italian project, that have a French name and that sings in English". They claim to be influenced by "Belle & Sebastian, Blur, Beatles, Beach Boys", and probably some other bands that start with B. The name of this track may or may not be "Sybil Vane", but either way it's pretty damn good:

The Thumbsucker DVD comes out on January 24. Based on the box office gross, none of you saw this movie, but it was one of my favorite films of 2005. And yes, that has something to do with the Tim DeLaughter score and the Elliott Smith songs. Pre-order the DVD here.
Here's a much better quality version of Jose Gonzalez's Massive Attack cover than the one that's been floating around (via Brooklyn Vegan):
