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 Peaches
- Regina Spektor
- Kings of Convenience
- Beirut
- Sondre Lerche
- The Balconies
- ARKELLS (had to throw in a little Southern Ontario bands)
- The Sleeping
- Cat Power
- Backseat Goodbye

Now comment other bands that you believe need more views, or even suggestions for myself!

Death cab for cutie
Iron and Wine
Bon Iver
Youth Lagoon
Band of Horses
The Shins
Just some of my favorites :)

haha yeah their beards are outrageous I haven't heard their new album yet but I'm downloading it right now. I love all their old stuff :)

Here are some of my favorite indie bands:
- Bon Iver
- Real Estate
- Arcade Fire (I still consider them indie though they are Grammy Award-winning)
- The Smiths
- Vampire Weekend
- Sufjan Stevens (Especially the All Delighted People EP.)
- Two Door Cinema Club

These guys are a great pleasure to listen to. =)

P.S. I'm a HUGE Fan of Kings of Convenience and Beirut. Glad to meet a fellow fan. =)))

I love indie music so much, but am also confused with what is actually Indie music... Some of my favourite Indie bands and artists are; Daughter (Particularly her song 'Youth'), Stealing Sheep, Fiona Apple, Emily and the Woods (Which I'm not actually sure is Indie, but sounds a lot like some indie songs), The Honey Trees, The Paper Kites, Local Natives, Of Monsters and Men, and I could go on like that for hours, but it would be a lot simpler to just tell you that there is a whole 'part' of youtube for Indie songs, which you can usually find through 'Youth' by Daughter. Just click on the recommended videos in the sidebar and you could be there all day!



It's nice to find somebody that likes decent music!

Yeahhhh! My kind of post! Ok, I just found The Avatars (garage band, hard to find their stuff), love The Greenhornes, and Die Mannequin are also good. (I am allllll about the guitar). The Von Bondies are also underrated. I'm going to check out some of yours too, thanks; I like The Airborne Toxic Event so I'm sure I'll like some others. Oh, also the Black Belles are worth having a look at.

The yeahyeahyeahs are pretty kickass, I'm so into female vocalists (it's the lesbian trying to come out again!) lmao. I'll have to check out the avatars :) if you want a full list of some pretty talented artists that don't have as much recognition as they truly deserve, check out: http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/86OPOD/:y94BO7Y0:Dc2IZqw1/www.wolfgangsvault.com/performers/concerts/genres/hard-rock-metal.html/

The YeahYeahYeahs are good. I think we like the music.Thanks for the link, very cool, I love listening to bands that deserve a lot more exposure :)
