    Favorite Indie Bands At The Moment

    I'm a big fan of indie music and wanted to see if anyone around here was into it as well. My favorites have to contain: MGMT, Foster the People, Passion Pit, The Lumineers, Death Cab For Cutie, Of Monsters and Men, Noah and the Whale, and currently just started listening to The Naked and Famous.

    I know a lot of people here probably are not into this music but we all have our differen't taste. Most of the bands I've mentioned above are obviously already pretty big. Anyone you guys like and indie bands I could check into?

    If you want to pick this stuff up you're better off walking around in skinny jeans with a can of PBR and pretending you have opinions about the different translations of Dostoyevsky.

    MGMT, Foster the People,
    Can you honestly consider those guys "indie" ?

    So a genre has a style, or in a way a culture/lifestyle behind it, so you mock it?

    Talk about ignorance. If anything, if a genre get's to the point
    where it does have that kind of following it's a great thing for music.

    Look at Hip-Hop in the 80's and 90's, not comparing the two. Obviously
    one was much more influential to music historically than the other.

    But if you call yourself a music fan, you should embrace moments like
    this while they come. Instead this generation being a bunch of squares
    that listen to the radio and the lack of expression we get from our pop
    artists in todays music, we actually have something of our own. (in a way)

    What? I don't mock it b/c it has a culture, i mock its culture. I'm supposed to like something just b/c its has a scene? Sorry but that's ********

    Was gonna say Cursive. Love that band.

    I really don't know what indie music is at this point. Hipster music? Hipsters are the spawn of elitist emo kids but with even worse taste in music.

    If Brand New is considered indie, count them in. Although they might have been around for too long to keep the label.

    I consider a lot of those more as alternative than indie, but it's just a label anyway. Some others: Civil Twilight, Metric, The xx, Young the Giant, Atlas Genius

    I don't consider Brand New indie. I consider them ****ing awesome and don't belong to a genre.
