I'll begin with...
Title sounds like a hipster thread. great idea though. Thanks for the suggestion, I will check them out.
I recommend checking out company of thieves. The singer has a great voice and the guitar playing is great. Under the umbrella and Oscar Wilde are good starters from their first album and modern waste from their second.
Check out Wintersleep.
i'm a broken record here: field music
I remember Swell. Cool that you're bringin' 'em back.
My vote goes to Ted Leo and the Pharmacists. Not terribly obscure, but Ted's a great guy doing it on his own terms, and I like to tout him as often as I can.
Gonna go with Spoon. Not terribly "indy" or "underground", but a surprisingly large number of folks haven't heard of them. Give 'em a listen. You'll be glad you did.
some of my favorite sh!t right now is louis cole's music:
Anything that Esthero sings.
Another vote for Spoon.
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
Margot and the Nuclear So & So's
Minotaurs/ Nathan Lawr
Micachu & The Shapes
Broken Social Scene
Peter Bjorn & John
Kings Of Convenience
Brian Jonestown Massacre
The Dutchess & The Duke
Mr. Airplane Man
Dead Man Winter/ Trampled By Turtles
Do May Say Think
David Karsten Daniels
Love As Laughter
Love that band!
Haha second post in is already proclaiming "hipster!"
Eclectic tastes for sure. Thanks for the suggestions. I'll admit, I'm certainly a sucker for guitar-centric, slightly darker themed music.
Keeping along those lines, here's a great "supergroup" of sorts - Adam Franklin [Swervedriver] and Sam Fogarino [Interpol]...
someone still loves you boris yeltsin
^This is fantastic stuff! It reminds me of early Creation Records, some of the early 80's Scottish bands, and Flying Nun [New Zealand label].
What's the scoop? Have Beach Fossils been around long? Discography?
Have you heard of this band...
I this thread
A couple I havent seen mentioned yet:
+1 (played w/'em in DC). Adam's solo stuff is even better, and Swervedriver are the second greatest band of all time.
I discovered them via the third greatest band of all time, The Wedding Present. Speaking of Flying Nun, the fourth greatest band of all time is the Verlaines, and David Kilgour is a phenomenally tasteful guitar player and master of tone both with his solo stuff and in the fantabulous Clean who are on a VERY RARE tour of the U.S. in June; see them!!!!!!!
Speaking of Creation Records, they had, along with Swervedriver, Ride, an AMAZING band.
Two bands you have never heard and should: Fivehead (Austin--http://www.myspace.com/fiveheadmusic) and Latenight Television (Philly--http://www.myspace.com/lntv)--amazing tunes and lyrics, great sounds, both incredibly rocking and Matt of LNTV, in particular, is an amazing guitarist. -E
I like this band out of Montreal, Quebec, Canada called King Khan and the Shrines. Not real guitar heavy, but their bass player kills it.
When you say "Indie" bands, does that mean that they are from Indiana?
