I like stuff like keane/kaisers/embrace dont get me wrong but there is no such genre as 'indie' - indie can take on any stylistic form of music, that is not on a wellknown label

i never thought this is gonna turn into discussion about indie music in general. i know its hard to define it sometimes. i just thought like...you cant say Killers are not more indie than Britney,or even some rock mainstream bands. I really like to discover new bands. Like i really discovered band called Lorraine and their first GREAT single I feel it. Ckeck it out!

On a somewhat related note, am I the only one that thinks The Killers' "Glamorous Indie Rock & Roll" is the lamest song since "The Final Countdown"?

Not to bash the band since I'll admit to liking the CD, but damn.

Anyway, here are some good bands that could possibly be considered "indie" in one form or another:

The New Pornographers
Arcade Fire
Interpol
Modest Mouse
Broken Social Scene
Brand New
The Format
Wolf Parade
Sufjan Stevens
Elliott Smith
Secret Machines
The Pixies

Meh, I don't really care whether something's regarded as "indie" or not. Labels are so fluid anyway. The only misuse that bothers me is "Britpop." I want to scream everytime someone refers to a band as "Britpop" just because they're British

Anyway , I can send you some mp3s if you'd like. Post your email address or email me at meegannie@yahoo.com .

If this is indie, what the hell is mainstream?

YES.

Britpop isn't necessarily my genre of choice, but it annoys me more than it should when I hear people throwing around that tag for the current wave of (clone) bands - especially since I seem to encounter alot of pretentious so-called music elitists using it.

Britpop:

I've always understood this to be a band often in 5 piece that uses a guitar, accoustic guitar, drums bass and piano, or at least 4 of these.

As Indie isn't really "Independent" artist anymore, there is still an indie sound, or idea that certain bands seem to follow.

It's more of a genre now than anything.

Most good music comes from "Indie" bands, but they would never get played on the radio because they aren't radio friendly. That's the way i like it, I hate the radio.

I like the indie sound, more and more everyday.

good Indie rock = Arcade Fire, Interpol, New Pornos, Smiths, Pixies, Broken Social Scene, Metric, etc....

I am always excited when i discover some new band like that one i mentioned Lorraine. I like that. And love to watch tv shows with that kind of music. I like Smiths and Morrissey the best and all of the old school like Jesus and Mary Chain , Pixies, Mission,
etc(Cabaret Voltaire, Bauhais, Cure)

To me Britpop should be used more as a description of an era of music (the 90s when British guitar bands were all the rage) rather than as a description of the bands themselves.

EDIT: Because as soon as you start using Britpop to describe the bands themselves you end up with bands like Pulp and Radiohead being called 'Britpop' when their sounds are actually completely different. Thus making it a meaningless label.
