Paper Rival were an amazing band, really sad about their breakup but in this economy it seems artists are being hit hard. Nevertheless, Good Old War are really good as well and Anthony Green’s solo stuff. All that’s quite bluegrassy/indie
Indie’s such a huge genre I guess that loads of stuff come under the umbrella but yeah, Gregory & The Hawk, Kimbra (seriously check her out, she is amazing), Marina & The Diamonds (more mainstream but eh) Mewithoutyou (check check check!!!!) & Dragonette. Plenty of Indie for the world to admire :)posted over 4 years ago
Indie – Now this is my thing :)
From mainstream I like Marina & the Diamonds, Florence and the Machine, The Editors, Kings of Leon, MGMT, The Killers etc…
From the past I love The Smiths, The Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen etc…
My favourites are probably bands like The National (AMAZING! You must check out their album ‘Boxer’) Interpol, The Shins, Idlewild, The New Pornographers, Immaculate Machine amongst lots of others.posted over 4 years ago
Los Campesinos! forever, I adore every single song by them.
Also, I’ve recently developed a taste for music on the Canadian label Arts & Crafts, they have some wonderful bands, Stars, although not indie, are pretty beautiful.posted over 4 years ago

i love indie and i’ve always loved it.
i don’t have my favourite artsts who count just as indie.
mgmt, last year i was really obsessed with the kooks, the kills, the libertines, cajun dance party (shame that they split) , yeah yeahs yeahs, klaxons , and so on.
lastfm says that arctic monkeys are indie, and they’re my favorite band.
and today i discovered ‘the filthy youth’ and i love them.
lol MGMT isn’t indie at all.
