    I know Indie isn't the most popular genre around here but for those that are interested. I compiled a mix for my girl (at her request) and just wanted to share it with the GC.

    Indie seems like a pretty broad umbrella... I mean some of the tracks in this mix are pure folk, or pop or alternative or electro mixed in with some sort of rock influence I guess. But I think as a whole can be lumped into indie? I dunno. Here's the mix anyway if you're interested... even if you're not check it out... why not?

    p.s. If anyone's interested in a track list let me know and I'll post it up

  2. Could you possibly list what tracks you have on there? I'm digging your mix. :smoking:
  3. diggin this man, +rep
  4. Right on... wasn't sure if there'd be any takers :smoke: Admittedly, it's a little on the "soft" side, (it was for my girl after all) but there are some jams for sure.

    And as you've requested:

    Heartbeats - The Knife
    Walking On A Dream - Empire of the Sun
    Transmission (Joy Division Cover) - Hot Chip
    My Night with the Prostitute From Marseille - Beirut
    Blue Ridge Mountains - Fleet Foxes
    Skinny Love - Bon Iver
    The Reeling - Passion Pit
    Ulysses - Franz Ferdinand
    Paris - Friendly Fires
    1901 - Phoenix
    Knocked Up (Rodeo Remix) - Lykke Li (Kings of Leon)
    Help I'm Alive - Metric
    We Own The Sky - M83
    Nothing to Worry About - Peter Bjorn and John
    I've Seen Enough - Cold War Kids
    M.E.X.I.C.O. - The Kills
    No Love Lost (Joy Division Cover) - LCD Soundsystem
    Ghost Under Rocks - Ra Ra Riot
    When I Grow Up - Fever Ray
    Brandy Of The Damned - Nickel Eye


  5. i like 90s indie. its my favorite genre, but nowadays the word indie is throw around so much and can mean anything from the strokes to a girl playing a xylophone accompanied by a french harpist.
    here are some of my favorites:

    Archers of Loaf
    Built to Spill
    Dinosaur Jr.
    Guided by Voices
    Silver Jews
    Neutral Milk Hotel
  6. lol @ french harpist

    /agree about the "indie" tag. It's stupidly broad nowadays... which is kinda why I used it with this mix... it's a wide spectrum of music from mostly independent record labels.

    ...and that list of yours totally brings me back to highschool... half those bands were in my favorite oldschool skate & surf vids. (and often playing in my "discman" :p)

    btw.. have you had a chance to listen to dinosaur jr.'s new album (Farm)? decent... definitely a throwback to that era... but kind of a let down imho.
