From Allmusic's review of Keath Mead's Sunday Dinner:

South Carolina native Keath Mead is a self-taught musician, and from the sound of his debut album, Sunday Dinner, his education included lots of '70s soft rock, '90s power pop à la Teenage Fanclub, and 2000s chillwave. ... This production trick means that even the most uptempo songs, like the rollicking "Change" and "Navy," are rounded off and easy to swallow. Mead's voice is well suited to these tracks, but his sweet crooning sounds best on the melancholic midtempo tracks that sound like Teenage Fanclub album tracks, specifically the ones penned by Gerald Love.

This from The Guardian..

"The debut album from 25-year-old South Carolinian Keath Mead, released on Toro Y Moi’s label, likely won’t dazzle at first listen, but it quietly seeps into one’s consciousness, by virtue of old-fashioned merits: songcraft and melodies. In a sentence, you could say it’s Teenage Fanclub if they’d formed in the post-chillwave, post-electronica age. It’s pretty consistently sunny guitar pop, embellished with little washes of electronic sound by producer Chaz Bundick (Toro himself), but assembled so deliciously it’s hard to quibble. There are repeated ideas: the album standout, Polite Refusal, is all but a rather better rewrite of the preceding track, Navy. And those with a disdain for sweetness might find themselves reaching for the sick bag at times: “We can have a dozen children,” Mead sings on Where I Wanna Be, “As many as you please/ As long as they are like you/ And don’t take after me.” But if that poses you no problems, then there’s much about Sunday Dinner to delight".

Two words: Velvet Crush. Their 1994 album- 'Teenage Symphonies to God' is a masterpiece.

I'd settle for a group called Teenage Fanclub putting out records that sounded like Teenage Fanclub. Date for the album soon?

Check out "The Dreaming Spires". They are kind of Byrdiesque.
Especially the Song "Just can't keep this feeling in":

This group actually name-drops Teenage Fanclub in the song "Singing Sin City."
