Of course, Breeders (esp "Last Splash") and Belly (Star). I like Tonya Donnely's solo stuff too. I knew I forgot something obvious. If nothing else, this list is giving me suggestions for artists to try.

Has anyone else heard of Grey Eye Glances? I think they fit the bill (especially Eventide and A Little Voodoo) -- really great pop/rock/folk/alt music, and definitely underappreciated (they've been self-publishing for several years after getting booted from a major label).

It's not my thing (and I don't have the CD) but I have a feeling the OP would like Kelly Clarkson (Breakaway) if he/she doesn't already have it.

You make me feel really old. "Beauty and the Beat" is a fantastic album.

Velocity Girl fits everywhere very easily. What a phenomenal band...

Anyway, for a while there, I wasn't listening to anything but female-fronted bands, so here are some of my suggestions (the links go to WMA samples from Amazon or mp3s from the band's official site):

Tuscadero -- "Nancy Drew", "Not My Johnny", "Freak Magnet"
The Go-Go's -- "How Much More"
Dance Hall Crashers -- "Make Her Purr", "We Owe"
that dog. -- "He's Kissing Christian", "Never Say Never", "Being with You"
Julie Plug -- Starmaker, "Listening to Astrud"
Tsunami Bomb -- "Roundabout"
Damone -- "Frustrated Unnoticed", "Feel Bad Vibe"
Velocity Girl -- "Audrey's Eyes", "Lose Something"
The Bangles -- "In Your Room"
The Soviettes -- "Paranoia! Cha-Cha-Cha"
The Eyeliners -- "Sealed with a Kiss"
The Skirts -- "Snapshot"
The Rondelles -- "Safety in Numbers", "Shanghai Surprise"
Fuzzy -- "It Started Today", "Drag"
Hot Pursuit -- "Goldenhead"

I could list a whole lot more by many of these bands, but...that's enough of a starting point, I guess. I'd recommend anything and everything by that dog. ("Retreat from the Sun" is one of my favorite albums of all time), Tuscadero, The Rondelles, and Velocity Girl in particular.

or better yet, their cover of Simon and Garfunkel's "Hazy Shade of Winter"..

i second Tanya Donelly's solo stuff. notably, "Goat Girl" for a quirky little song that would fit well on a light-hearted mix as is being made...
