Can anybody name some modern music that sounds like 50s/early 60s pop?

I'm talking about early rock n roll, doo wop, bubblegum pop, r&b, etc.... I have been searching for modern music that uses the same production, styles, instruments, lyrics, etc... of that era. Seems garage rock, synthpop, and 70s hard rock have been resurfaced as of late and seem pretty decent at recreating the past.

Here's some examples of classic music from that era
Angels - My Boyfriend Is Back
Chuck Berry - No Particular Place To Go
Fats Domino - I'm Walkin
Coasters - Yakety Yak
Cascades - Rhythm of the Falling Rain
Tokens - The Lion Sleeps Tonight
Chordettes - Mr. Sandman
Drifters - On Broadway
Ad Libs - The Boy From New York City
Brenton Wood - Gimme A Little Sign
Fleetwoods - Mr. Blue

And I'm looking for a true recreation of this sound. Not some band that fuses punk with doo wop or hip-hop with motown (Amy Winehouse). I'm looking for the real deal.

This is the best example of some modern music that tries to recreate that era.

I pretty sure the "Bands and Artists Recommendation Thread" would be a tad bit more helpful then the pit.

Example: I would love to help you, but I cannot.

EDIT: The song in the first post wins immensely.

Thanks for disproving me, jerk.

That Women track is close to what I'm looking for. I do enjoy it very much. A great Beach Boys like sound. The other songs on their album are more modern indie rock sounding though.

A new song by RJA draws from a heavy Doowop influence. I personally love it.

Not exactly what I was looking for either, though it is little different for typical pop-punk radio ballads. The lead singing has no connection with the era I'm talking about. Too whiny and them drums getting louder and louder at 2:30 is sooo overused in all the pop-punk music the last 10 years or so. Overall, a decent song imo.

Hell yeah! I loove the Ditty Bops. They're like the female version of the Stray Cats almost. I've only heard Summer Rains album which is good fun track. I love the fun and innocent energy they put off in their music. This track has a kinda gypsy swing, countryish, and rockabilly sound.

She-Him

Oh, I forgot to mention She-Him. "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here" is actually even a better representation of what I'm looking for.

This makes me all warm and fuzzy inside and reminds me of listening to oldies radio when I was a young kid.
