    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...

    The National and a song called "I Luv the Valley OH!" by Xiu xiu. But there are so many ridiculously good indie bands.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Father John Misty can do no wrong.

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

    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

    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...

    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 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...
