    Help Me, Please.

    I love indie / obscure music. But I mostly listen to indie pop or softer stuff. I also really love Tool, Chevelle & Breaking Benjamin. Can anyone point me in the direction of some good indie bands that are similar, especially Tool & Chevelle. Thanks in advance!

    A Love For Indie Music.

    Once upon a time, I was a mainstream ***** (I'm a guy. This is metaphorical of course.). All that mattered to me was getting the "in" things, watching the "in" movies, listening to the "in" music, and the list goes on. All of that changed, on a fateful day a year ago. My...

    Indie Music Or Individual Music?

    Modern indie music is more alternative rock and pop than anything, which DEFINITELY isn't a bad thing, considering it's basically all I listen to, but I'm wondering if this group is for that kind of indie or the "real" indie (indie standing for individual) music, as in they haven...

    Spice Up My Playlist!

    I'm lacking in some good and new (to me) indie bands at the moment. While I love a vast variety of genres, it would be great to find more music like Neutral Milk Hotel, Broken Social Scene, Explosions in the Sky or Cursive (circa The Ugly Organ). Suggestions, please!

    This Post Is More Like My "adios" To The Indie Culture Thing.

    Back in 2005 my life changed when I heard my first indie band. From then on I couldn't stop. I needed to know everything about each band resulting in me joining every forum, was on multiple street teams, and for the bands I really loved...I would wait 9 hours at the venue to meet...

    Indie Music Is My Life

    So I'm sixteen, and about a year and a half ago I really started getting into listening to indie music, noticing that the bubble-gum pop so-called "music" that my peers listen to are meaningless. They all sound the same. Anyways, now, I have to listen to music whenever I'm not...

    Salute To College Radio

    If I hadn't discovered my city's college radio station(s) about a decade ago, I wouldn't have been a fan of indie music. I would have never heard of Crime in Choir, Te, The Big Sleep, The Black Lips, The Selmanaires, Ratatat, Free the Robots, Local Natives, and many other bands...

    Indie Can Be So Many Different Kinds..

    that's what I love about it.. it doesn't has to be something special.. it simply is.. It's not like punk or something.. if you're a punk you "have" to wear special clothes... But you can simply be indie.. It's just soo unconventional.. I love it I love so many bands...
