San Pedro is fuckin awesome!
I have to agree with Dori though,I feel like I sound like a close-minded asshole when I say they are a genre of their own and I have yet to hear a band that matches up to them but it's true! It's pleasantly true.

Some songs by faith no more. And a band called San Pedro give me massive chills just like incubus! But they are heavily influenced by incubus!
very tough because as everyone's said, they're so dang unique. in terms of musical evolution, the guy that comes to mind is jack white. he started out small (and ended big) in the white stripes and has since expanded his sound to the incredible alternative-pop-rock raconteurs, the dark dead weather (where he plays drums) and now this rome project. not to mention all the stuff he does on the side from bluegrass to a movie theme with alicia keys. he's intense--for better or for worse--but he really cares about music in a way that i think is similar to the guys in incubus. and i think his eclecticism is par with incubus's as well.
i guess while i'm on the subject, does anybody know any other artist that's as eclectic as these two? i'd love to give a listen.
