Really enjoying "Does it Offend You, Yeah's" new album. I dont own much in the genre; I enjoy:

 

The Presets

Depeche Mode

The Faint

Ghostland Observatory

LCD Soundsystem

Empire of the Sun 

 

Recos?

Chromeo. Aww yeah.

 

I guess it's considered French House, but Daft Punk.

Sounds more on the electronic-funk side, but good nonetheless.

Thanks.

 

And I love me some Daft Punk.

Recently got the "Alive" album; easily their best album.

Try Yeasayer, Odd Blood or Fragrant World.

Kate Bush: Hounds of Love (super artsy pop, but wonderfully synthy in that special 80's way)

The Cars: The Cars (should go without saying!)

Cat Power: Sun (Indie-rock's Patron Lady of Sadness finds the light and has fun doing so!)

Crystal Castles: Crystal Castles (either of their self-titles oughtta work for you, synth madness with a punk edge)

Cut Copy: Zonoscope 

Grimes: Visions (dreamy and adorable)

M.I.A.: Maya (maybe a little too noisy and unpleasant to fit your criteria, but you might dig a few tracks on it)

M83: Saturdays = Youth and Hurry Up, We're Dreaming

John Maus: We Must Become the Pitiless Censors of Ourselves (if you like Joy Division)

New Order: Low-Life (classic in the genre)

Nine Inch Nails: Pretty Hate Machine (if you don't mind a healthy dose of late 80s/early 90s angst)

Of Montreal: Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer (synthy-art pop with a psych/glam edge)

Roxy Music: Avalon

Yeah Yeah Yeahs: It's Blitz (Dumps the garage-rock of their early days in favor of dance-punk)

Haha--just make sure when you finally add Low-Life to your collection that you get the 2-disc set. It's got the complete edits of both 'Perfect Kiss' and 'Elegia.' The normal album edit of Elegia is probably the worst thing to ever happen to a track, period.
