Lately I've been listening to a lot of lo-fi, garage-ish rock, and among all the bands I've found, The Sandwitches really stand out. They put our their debut How to Make Ambient Sadcake, which, aside from having a cool name and sweet sweet music, has a kinda strange drawing of a 2 legged cat on the cover, baggin them extra points.
If the Smith Westerns had a baby with Best Coast, and that baby had a baby with fellow San Franciscoans, Girls, that baby would sound something like The Sandwitches. In case that description didn't help you (and if it didn't go check out all those bands) they've got an almost jangly/retro twist on their lo-fi sound, and they occaisonally have semi-country-ish vocals on a few tracks (but don't let that throw you off, it sounds good).
Don't just take my word for it, have a listen!
