"Indie" Music

  1. Currently I am completely obsessed with "indie" kind of music. I have been listening to "Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes", "Modest Mouse", "Foster the People", "Wolf Parade", and a bunch of others. Anyone who doesn't know any of these bands I strongly suggest looking them up. Also anyone know of any other good bands that sound like these guys ^^?
  2. Check out Built To Spill, Pavement, Pixies, and Deerhunter. I like a lot of the bands you listed and will check out the ones I don't know :).
  3. Alright well I love Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes and Modest Mouse, so I'll drop a few bands that you may like.

    Spoon- I'm coming back up here to post these guys to make sure you here them lol. "We get high in backseats of cars" is the first line. Yeah you like them already :)


    The Shins- You'll dig these guys for sure, but make sure to check out all there stuff as it ranges from folk to trippy, depending on album. The first one is a newer popular while the second one is older. Both are beyond fantastic to smoke to...

    Interpol- Def indie and been around for a good while. I highly reccomend reading the lyrics while watching the videos as they are very beautiful and thought provoking. This isn't an official vid but it really gives me the chills when watching it....


    Pinback- Very groovy and chill; you can probably call their music contemplative. Lyrics don't mean as much and leave a bit more to interpretation. They use a lot of layering in their sound which is great just getting lost listening to the different parts. Here are more of my two upbeat favs
