    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...

    Heard 'Skinny Love' by Bon Iver

    for the first time today, and loved every second of the song. I absolutely love Indie/Folk/Singer-Songwriter music. <3 It speaks to my soul.

    I absolutely LOVE The xx,

    even though they've kinda gone mainstream. Also among my favourites are Alt-J, Bastille, Arctic Monkeys, The Temper Trap and now Daughter

    I've really been into Indie Music lately.

    When I need to relax I just put on some Indie music and it seems to make everything better. When I'm doing something tedious and dull, like cleaning, I play Indie music and it seems to help make it less dull and tedious. The power of music. :P

    A Tad Bit Elitist

    Father John Misty can do no wrong.

    The song "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings" is probably my favorite, if I had to choose.

    Before he blew up, George Lewis Jr aka Twin

    Shadow. Forget is probably his masterpiece. I enjoyed his latest album, but most of his songs on Forget just have unforgettable melodies and haunting lyrics for some reason, especially the title track. It's a good post-break up song. I know this is a superficial post but DL the...

    If any of you guys dig 80's music you should

    check out Paperwhite. They have this classic 80's beat especially their song "Take Me Back". It's soooo good and hypnotic I've been hooked on it for weeks now. :) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7qpaxq4B87U

    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...

    Not especially the sort that

    for some reason is called "indie" now - The Kooks ! Neutral Milk Hotel! I mean the stuff like Jesus & Mary Chain, The Smiths, The Fall, My Bloody Valentine. Now that's indie.

    and fit in with the main crowd. The "cool kids". You would never see me without my Aeropostale t-shirt and plain blue skinny jeans, stick straight or neatly curled hair, and Kelly Clarkson or Maroon 5 albums. Now, I'm not saying any of these things are bad; if that's what you do...

    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...
