Indie Music Lovers (that also like U2)...

...make yourself known.

Along with U2, my favorite bands are:
Death Cab, Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley, The Shins, Sunny Day Real Estate, Modest Mouse, Copeland, The Postal Service, Pedro the Lion, Mates of State... etc...

I also enjoy a good Wes Anderson flick which raises my indie status significantly.

are there any others out there?

everyone in the music forum is "indie". you'll almost never seen a stupid bon jovi, matchbox twenty, or nickelback thread here, and you can thank me for that.

however, there's still three categories of indie. those who think they are, but clearly aren't when they think keane, the killers, coldplay, and starsailor are. no don't get me wrong, some of those bands are better than others, they're just not indie.

then there's people like u2popmofo, elvis presley, cujo, heartland girl, the wanderer (who doesn't post here anymore), calluna, kieran, etc. who all seem to have a good grasp on things.

then there's the sean johnston's of the world. most of you don't know who that is, but he's beyond indie. it's almost awkward.

Practically every store you go to has a different category for "Indie". (Hence my resentment for categories!)

Just take a look at the other million "Bands You Like" threads and you get a taste of the music discussions here.

ha, you just lost my vote Mullen....



As for indie, zoom hits it pretty well. However, to define it is to not understand it. Wouldnt you say?
Mr Brau around, he loves indie kids.....

The word 'Nickelback' should not be that close to a picture of Larry. Ever.


Crap. I forgot about my avatar.

I must admit to liking Matchbox 20's first album... and I too get irritated by this category bullshit. Being over the age of 10, I have a tendency to believe individualism. And, the definition of "indie" is in constant flux and is rarely an accurate term anyway these days (speaking as someone who was labaelled an "indie kid" for years).

As Lou Barlow once said, "The term indie is kind of dumb as it doesn't tell you what the music sounds like; it only describes the size of the label the band is signed to.

p.s. Death Cab signed to Atlantic recently, hence, no longer indie.

Anyway, to respond to the original post, I like Death Cab, Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley, The Shins, The Postal Service, and Pedro the Lion.

Oh my, I have a rep. I just hate "scenes".
I've still got my Death Cab, Velvet Teen, Orange Park, and Spoon records. Right next to my Johnny Cash, U2, Elvis, and REM records.
