    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...

    When I was younger, I used to try

    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...

    Let's Exchange Bands!

    I'm not entirely sure if they all count as 'indie', so please no hipsters pointing out so - I've already admitted it. So maybe let's rephrase this: Musicians that deserve more coverage. That works. - Coconut Records - The Airborne Toxic Event - The Smiles - A B & The Sea - Moldy...

    Indie music is my life.

    I listen to it when I'm alone, when I have my earbuds, and at home. I listen to other genres such as techno, post core, metal, hip-hop, I'm open minded to music. Indie music that one that I like the best out of everything. But it really depends on the feel of the song that lures...

    A Tad Bit Elitist

    I love indie music and all the amazing, creative ways indie artists are finding to express themselves in their music (cough...Animal Collective...cough)...which is why I absolutely hate when I hear my favorite, unique, not that well-known bands on the radio. It just ruins it for...

    Burial

    I was looking through some Best of Indie 2007 lists and everyone's list was pretty much the same if in different orders. I came across one site that had Burial as number one. That wasn't on anyone else's list so I checked him out. Holy crap. His stuff is soooo bada*s. On his...

    who loves indie? i need new bands to listens to.

    . so i decided to make a post! i am quite picky, though. i don't listen to mainstream indie (although, i will forever love two door cinema club). i love underground bands, bands that aren't "out there" yet... anyways! current bands i'm listening to: magic man & new navy.

    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

    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.

    Billy Corgan, Falling In Love Vs. Getting Laid, And Death Of Albums

    Warning: You will be bored to tears with this if you aren't a music geek. Billy Corgan on the music industry, bands who produce singles, not albums.

    I've listened to kodaline

    for years, before they became more known. Their music has a way of sending me back to every memory I've had with a certain someone. Good and bad memories. It's so beautiful to be able to be transported mentally like that because of a single sentence in a beautiful song.

    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 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...

    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...
