Anyone else into the Indie scene?

I sure am. The amount of Indie bands I like is rediculous, so I'm sure I'll miss some but here are some of the major players I like:

Pavement
Grandaddy
New Pornographers
Belle and Sebastian
The Start
The Shins
Modest Mouse
Beta Band
The Dismemberment Plan (they just broke up)
Inerpol
The Avalanches

Lots others

Trying to get into, failing miserably. Where are the loads of cash I need for import releases and where are all the Stereolab fans on Kazaa?

Stereolab is quite good

Never heard anything by them. I don't want to spend $20 for something I've never heard and all attempts to download something by them to try fails miserably.

Quasi
Elliott Smith
Yo La Tengo
Low
etc...

-yo la tengo have a new CD coming out in april
-New Pornographers have a new cd in may....their new song is online at matadors website. It's pretty much the same as the mass romantic stuff but very good.
-elliott Smith has a new cd coming soon!

*overload*

Usually when I think indie I think the indie rock bands like Thrush Hermit and Dandy Warhols whom I do not really like so much. Seems like if you label yourself indie it doesn't matter how off key you sing

Downloaded the New Pornographers' song. You're right, now much different than the last album. Still though, considering the last album was fantastic, that's not neccessarily a bad thing.

I'm adding a new indie band I'm interested in : Catpower.
I really like what I've heard so far, their new album is on MTV.com's first listen thing now. Check it out.
