You know, recent ones.

Also, don't just post a link to the A/V Club or Pitchfork or a blog written by a 31 year old white person with a scalplock hairstyle. Don't want that heard, just need your word!

(that was a rhyme)

I am personally enjoying the new Snow Patrol a lot. I know a lot of people think they are too U2-esque / Coldplay-esque to be indie, but songs like Lifeboats, The Golden Floor and Lightning Strike are VERY indie.

Vampire Weekend's album is kinda recent and it's pretty damn indietastic, I think.

I heard it blew?

I guess I should give it a spin and confirm that it blows, though.

TV On The Radio - Dear Science
Parts & Labor - Receivers
Glasvegas - s/t
Subtle - ExitingARM
Of Montreal - Skeletal Lamping

All of these are worth listening to.

Also, Secret Machines - Secret Machines is pretty good if you're into that (I am).

I like the album. I also consider myself a bit of a weekend vampire, but probably not in the same way that they meant it...

Mud spelled backwards is dum.

It does blow, but yeah, give it a spin anyway.

And, while you're at it:

Cut Copy - In Ghost Colours
Hercules And Love Affair - Hercules And Love Affair
Sun Kil Moon - April
The Dodos - Visiter
No Age - Nouns

Also, Snow Patrol is NOT indietastic. By any stretch of the imagination.

agree with most of those... Dodos, Cut Copy and No Age especially. The new Walkmen Disc kicks ASS... Bon Iver = unlimited listens... I also like the new French Kicks disc. the opener, 'Abandon' is sweeeet. Les Savy Favs disc Lets Stay Friends is a little edgier, Patty Lee was my favorite song last year. Spoon's Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga is a kick ass disc from a year or 2 ago. Fleet Foxes is a nice disc too.

ya, and Snow Patrol does = coldplay. Thats not a good thing.

Oh boy.

A is for Andrew Bird. Get The Mysterious Production of Eggs.
B is for Broken Social Scene. Get You Forgot it in People.
C is for Cat Power. Get Moon Pix or You Are Free.
D is for Do Make Say Think. Get Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn.
E is for Explosions in the Sky. Get The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place.
F is for the Flaming Lips. Get The Soft Bulletin. (F is also for Feist. Get a boner.)
G is for Grizzly Bear. Get Yellow House.
I is for Iron & Wine. Get The Shepherd's Dog.
J is for Jack and Meg White. Get the White Stripes' De Stijl or Elephant.
K is for Kings of Leon. Get Aha Shake Heartbreak, their only good album.
L is for LCD Soundsystem. Get Sound of Silver.
M is for Man Man, whose Rabbit Habits is one of the best and most underrated albums of the year.
N is for the National. Get Alligator and Boxer. Fall in love.
O is for Okkervil River. Get Black Sheep Boy and The Stage Names.
P is for Picaresque, an album by the Decemberists you should get (as well as Her Majesty).
Q is for the Queen Mary, who Wolf Parade apologized to in Apologies to the Queen Mary. Get it.
R is for Radiohead. Obviously.
S is for Spoon. Get Kill the Moonlight and Gimme Fiction.
T is for TV on the Radio. Get the year's best album (Dear Science) and Return to Cookie Mountain.
U is for unpopular U2 albums and tunes (they give you valuable indie cred!), but you know this already.
V is for Vampire Weekend, who only have out a self-titled debut. It's just okay, but it's as indispensable an indie accessory as a v-neck from American Apparel.
W is for Wilco. Get it all.
Y is for the underrated Yo La Tengo. Get I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One.
Z is for Z, an excellent album by My Morning Jacket. Also get At Dawn and It Still Moves.

Yikes.

I vote for embracing your non-indietasticness.
