Few British bands banging around there which is cool, I like most of the bands listed. New Pornographers, Decemberists, Shins, Bloc Party, Battle, Muse etc etc etc etc

My indie lust is dying a bit but the answering machines, and the little one's are cool, saw them live recently in london for a mates band (a beggars opera was supporting). Was quite a few American suit types there to watch (and some fans). I think a couple of them got signed off the back of my drunken antics alone (well, thats what im saying at least)

Bright Eyes is pretty much the stereotypical indie band. Conor Oberst is quite a genious though.

Yeah, i'm not that keen on their new stuff though. I was a massive fan when Helicopter and their first EP was about. The new album is alright, I really like the first few tracks, sort of dips after that though.

idk know what indie means now

most people dont consider an indie label to soley represent an indie band. the likes of slayer and mastadon are considered metal.

i think the consensus is that indie has certain rock ties and almost an unrefined sound to it. take bright eyes as the perfect example. very raw and rudimentary.

Death Cab, even though I really don't like them that much. If you count Oasis, they are my choice by far.

In Irving right now, but East Dallas is where I was born and raised. So I still consider it home.

The Killers are not indie anymore. They used to be the only rock group that I liked, then I heard that new CD and realized how frustrating the music industry is. It's sad that a band like the Killers had to sell out and change their style completely.

haha the killers, oasis, etc?! they r not indie bands, they r as mainstream as it gets im sorry
Oasis has one of the most selling albums of all time- indie is independent, unconventional music not top 10 sellers on itunes
the shins are great
belle and sebastian are fantastic
sufjan stevens is great
wilco is great
broken social scene
camara obscura
spoon
rogue wave
etc
