looks like you are into the fast, running line counterpoint math rock stuff. that's one of my favorite flavors but rare to find bands that do it well.
they had a 5 or 6 song demo that was released in a 100-200 count CD-R w/ inkjet printed case and cd label. because of that, hardly any of these still work since the cd labels warped the cd's they were on.
they also had a 500 print 7" which is still available.
i've always dug them. w/ 2 basses and no guitar they do it well. their best album is out of print, "as seen from above." my order of favorites after that are "old material, new format" and "battle champions." "millions of brazillians" never really made it into my rotation.
they only had those 2 releases + a few 7"
june of 44:
tropics and sharks are their best albums. they got really weird near the end. my fav song by them is on four great points but i hated anahata. the main song writer used to be in rodan, so you may want to check them out too.
probably the most unique indie rock band i'd ever heard. i only like 3-4 songs from every album, but they are solid. today's active lifestyles is probably my fav album.
cars get crushed:
these guys started out pretty heavy (like old june of 44) but lightened up. you hit the stuff in their later era.
you basically summed up their stuff. bakesale is a masterpiece. harmacy is good. bubble & scrape (which still had eric gafney as a songwriter) is next in line. III is okay. everything else is poop.
in the vein of ent/dianogah/juanitas:
pele, ghosts & vodka, the swords project, godspeed you black emporer, sharks keep moving, sleeping people
most indie rockers would probably push all kinds of bands i thought were okay but not special: tortoise, maserati, don caballero, the fucking champs, etc.
in the vein of semi-interesting indie/math like june of 44, polvo, etc.:
shellac, thirty ought six, manorastroman?, crain, craw, the crownhate ruin, drive like jehu
in the vein of sebadoh... god.. there used to be so many low-fi semi-dissonant yet light pop hook indie bands. now i can barely think of any.
have you listened to any of the stuff i recommended? it's funny, some of the suggestions you just made are ones i was considering suggesting to you. i'll check out the others.

this is the band i'm involved in right now. just now finished one song and we'll have others up soon enough. we have wacky influences so our music is a little strange to most:
