I've gotten into them bigtime recently and love this whole laid back, trippy feel..

I like K+D a lot as well. Lemon Jelly is even better. Their first disc, lemonjelly.ky, is great. Their new disc, Lost Horizons, is even better. Brilliant, brilliant stuff.

Lemon Jelly

K+D and Lemon Jelly generally fall under the chill-out or lounge labels. Some other good acts in this genre:

Thievery Corporation
Royksopp
Zero 7
Underworld
Boards of Canada

EDIT: I like Manu Chao as well. I've only got one of his albums though, so I really don't know a lot about him and can't really think of anything similar...

Boards of Canada - Music Has the Right to Children
Dntel - Life Is Full of Possibilities
Thievery Corporation - The Richest Man in Babylon
Nightmares on Wax - Carboot Soul
U.N.K.L.E. - Psyence Fiction

Start with those.

Then check out allmusic.com

Search there for a band or artist you like and they will list similar artists, influences, followers, etc. Best music info site ever.

while these are most likely mentioned at allmusic.com I highly recommend you check out: Fila Brazillia, Faze Action, Jazzanova, Mouse on Mars, Kinobe (album: "Soundphiles"), Plaid, Mirwais, and Baby Mammoth.

another album I highly praise, because it is one album that rightfully deserves to heard from track one to track ten, straight through (yes, it's that good) is the British band The Egg and their album "Travelator"

The Egg

I don't know a whole lot about the band, but you should download "The District Sleeps Alone Tonight" by The Postal Service. It has a guy from Dntel (I don't know too much about that group, so it may just be one guy in the first place) and Ben Gibbard, the singer/songwriter of Death Cab for Cutie, on vocals. Its a GREAT song, and it just keeps getting better every time I listen.
