  1. Hey, I'm not sure if there's a post on this already... But I couldn't find any! I was wondering if anyone knows of some good Indie bands? Hahaha, my music's kind of getting boring. All I can really think of is The Strokes, Modest Mouse and The Vines! I think Modest Mouse and The Vines are Indie. Hahaha, anyway can anyone help? :confused:

    There is a Canadian indie group called The Organ. I have a site with links to their music, videos and pic. They sound alot like Morrissey come check them out.

    Rise Against - Give It All (its a song)

    It is a yelling type rock song, and the bass drum is very heavy in it, if you have a good sub, it will rock your walls as well as any rap song. I have a few other rise against albums, but the aren't of the same caliber as that song.

    I'm assuming "indie" means "indepedent". I am curious as to what indie bands are declaring independence from.

    Are they declaring:
    Independence from on-pitch singing?
    Independence from interesting chord progressions?
    Independence from technical skill in playing and in composing?
    Independence from lyrics about anything besides angst and depression?
    Independence from hi-fidelity mixing/mastering jobs?
    All of the above?

    Only the indie bands know for sure. I'll take the processed sounds of Dream Theater over Neutral Milk Hotel's quavering, self-pitying tirade any day.
