The Changes are a rock band from Chicago that sound very reminiscent to The Police with a great plus: bouncy keyboards and electronic drums. You should definitely check them out, they're playing at Rothko in NYC - dec 15 & dec 17 at the mercury lounge, and they're headlining two nights in chicago dec. 30 & 31 @ schubas, go check their space for further dates. I'm way south from NY or Chicago, but if you're around, here's a lil' something to help you make your mind:

Gustav & the seasick sailors, are a band from Sweden which sound to me alot like early Wilco or even the Gin Blossoms but with a very melancholica-gypsy feel to it. Lead singer Gustav and the aptly named seasick sailors, released Vagabond's Polka at 2004 under Marylin Records and will be releasing a new LP, Sirkus, in March 2006. Here's "Nightlife" and "Seasons of guessing" from the afformentioned, Vagabond's Polka:
