Maximo Park

Never heard of this band before. Out of the blue I got an email about them, and I decided to check out their album Our Earthly Pleasures. One distinct feature is the thick British accent in the singer's voice. You know how when some musicians from Britain sing, they lose their accent (i.e. Elton John, Sting, etc)? Not Maximo Park. Take a listen and you'll get a full dose of some jolly good Brit accents. Of course the accent is not the only thing worth checking out. But it does feel like your listening to a real Brit rock band. Add in hyperactive pop/punk background music, and you have a group that seems like they could give bands like Franz Ferdinand some competition.
