This indie junkie tends to have that electronic flair to it. Namely Stars, Death Cab for Cutie, the RealPeople and the Postal Service.

I really enjoy the fact Stars, Metric and The Arcade Fire put a little depth and ambiguity in their lyrics. I like them thinking songs.

Anybody heard of Psapp, Blonde Redhead, Ladytron or Matisyahu?

Love me some Arcade Fire.

I have a friend who's big into Matisyahu, saw him live and loved it. I've heard some Ladytron although it's not my cup of tea.

OH hella. I was on a HUGE Arcade Fire kick last year. 8 months of Neon Bible. Funnily enough, I'm still not sick of it yet.

I can see Ladytron being... out there. For me, it's kinda like Blonde Redhead. Really abrasive at first, then a little more bearable each time.

I got a Libertines album Up The Bracket when it came out I thing I've listened to it about twice I could never really get into the The Libertines.

I heard Arctic Monkeys 'From The Ritz To The Rubble' on the radio the other day I haven't heard that song in a while and I forgot how awesome it is

Love the Futureheads 'hounds of love' cover. Shadow Puppets, Maximo Park are good too.

They've got 1 LP out (Elephant Shell) and 2 EP's (A Lesson in Crime, Smith).

Absolutely frantic!

I couldn't get into them at first, couldn't see what the big deal was. For whatever reason I revisited the album and was hooked. I think some of the stuff from their second album ("Can't Stand Me Now," "Don't Look Back Into the Sun") was more accessible.

I highly recommend the new album from It Hugs Back entitled "Inside Your Guitar". This is the British band's debut on legendary indie label 4AD and they remind me a lot of The Ladybug Transistor or some of the quieter, fuzzed-out Yo La Tengo songs from the "Painful" or "I Can Hear a Heart Beating..." albums. Really mellow, catchy, beautiful songs full of atmosphere and subtle effects.

Went to a show at the Silverlake Lounge in LA to see DUSTY RHODES AND THE RIVER BAND.

Indie bluegrass at its finest. Even if you don't like that type of music, they are so good live!

You've got a lot of my favorites listed.

I'd suggest The National, The Flaming Lips, Arctic Monkeys, Band of Horses, and if you're into older stuff I'd throw in Joy Division and The Smiths.

Went to make a thread about obscure music and noticed this.

I have a slightly bizarre taste in music so I thought I would list some of my favourite songs.

1. Dog Days - Florence And The Machine

2. Skinny Love - Bon Iver

3. Oh My God - Ida Maria

Top 5 Best Songs At The Mo

1. Dog Days - Florence And The Machine

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


Seriously the beauty of this song just makes me melt into joy.

2. Skinny Love - Bon Iver

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


This song is kinda happy and sad at the same time. I love it

3. Oh My God - Ida Maria

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


A bit repetitive, but still awesome.

4. A Little Death Around The Eyes - Peter Doherty

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


This song relaxes and depresses me, but I think that's just PD's voice.

5. Meddle - Little Boots

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


Weird (nothing like the other songs), but it makes me think of video games.

Okay so those are just some weird songs I litterally love so much it hurts. If anyone bothers to listen to these I hope you will be pleasantly surprised. When I can be bothered I'll conform and list off some brilliant musicians.
bon iver

Been digging Pete Doherty's solo album, although I wish the seemingly inevitable Libertines reunion would happen. The solo stuff isn't as memorable, although definitely enjoyable.
