This is one of my first finds when I started looking up what the internet offered the world of “indie rock/pop” as opposed to trying to catch collage radio programs or hanging out in Tower Records.  “Lederhosen Lucil” is the creation of one Krista Muir of Montreal, Canada — a very talented, creative and often very humorous songwriter, ukulelist, keyboardist, visual artist and stage-personality. Lucil’s songs are as creative and memorable as they are funny. Here’s a fine introduction with her synth-punk, garage/mod, NEW WAVE rocker:

Lothar and the Hand People: “Comic Strip”

Ahead of their time, Lothar and the Hand People were pioneers of the American psychedelic/experimental landscape in the late 60s and early 70s. They were the first band to record and tour with a synthesizer as well as introducing the theremin to the mainstream before Brian Wilson did on “Good Vibrations.” They were also allegedly one of the first known “long hair” bands.

Dig them in this trippy pop-psych studio production equipped with orchestral instruments, swirlly sitar-like guitar and synthesized sound effects:
