I've seen some on here, but others, I don't think so.....

Copeland (great up-and-coming young band, from Atlanta)
The Finn Brothers (Neil's solo stuff is awesome, but their newest CD - Everyone is Here - is grrrreat)
Iona (Irish band, epic in scope)
Hooverphonic (blissful)
Joseph Arthur
Interpol
Radiohead
Afghan Whigs (oh for the day, but for now, Twilight Singers will do)
Blue States
Boards of Canada
The La's (what a great ONE record they had!)
Mute Math (awesome new band)
Lamb
Frou Frou
South

some of these might be "indie" and others could be too mainstream, but these are a good cross-view of what I like.... oh, and Wes Anderson movies are good stuff.

I like a number of bands that would probably be considered indie, such as Elliott Smith, The Pixies, Modest Mouse, Nada Surf, Death Cab, The Postal Service, The Format, Radiohead, The Arcade Fire, The Velvet Underground, The Flaming Lips, XTC, The Talking Heads, the Jesus and Mary Chain, At the Drive-In, and David Bowie.


Although, I wouldn't call myself totally part of the indie crowd. Mainly because of my obsession with U2. Well, that and Third Eye Blind being my favorite band of all time. That might have something to do with it, too.

Let me ask a question to the indie fans who listen to fairly obscure bands...

Would artists like Jeff Beck, Marvin Sease, Alison Krauss/ Union Station, Gillian Welch, or Emmylou Harris be considered as indie as say Aereogramme?

Use of "indie" to mean anything other than "music on an independent label" is stupid.
