Johnny + the Moon are an indie folk band from British Columbia. Though they sound nothing alike, the band's frontman is Dante DeCaro from Hot Hot Heat and Wolf Parade. When I saw Handsome Furs last month, these guys were the opener, and I rather enjoyed it. I seeked their album out previously when I heard they were opening and really dug it. Though Dante is a bit of a douchebag (he backhandedly insulted everyone's- except his own- music tastes while playing), this album is definitely worth a shot if you're looking for something folk-ey, pleasant, and accesible. I figure a lot of people here will enjoy it.
