I define indie music as non-RIAA label artists for the most part. RIAA Radar being a good site to check this. Although, bugger all, it appears the site is not working right now.

Anyway, here are the indie artists I have been listening to lately.

Sunset Rubdown, absolutely my favorite band so far this year. Make sure to check out the free Daytrotter songs.

Tapes 'N Tapes, from my home town of Minneapolis. Good old fashion indie rock. The Cokemachineglow review has songs for download.

Band of Horses is another great indie rock band. They have songs for download on their site.

Islands, these guys are happly dark. The band is made up of left overs from the now defunct Unicorns.

Beirut, strangely enough a Balkan themed album from a guy from New Mexico. Haunting music, this guy has an amazing voice. They have songs for download as well.

The Figurines, a crazy Danish pop act. They are highly contagous. Check them out, they have mp3s on their site.


This is collection of new stuff that I got addicted to so far this year.

I think the electric car was killed for a variety of reasons including inefficiency and the difficulty of disposing of the batteries in an enviormentally friendly manor. Oh and the oil lobby.

"Jesus' Son".


It's a pretty cool flick.

The real question is: is there anyone under the age of 25 who HASN'T seen it?

Anyone here listen to Asian Kung Fu Generation ?

They have some really good music. They also played opening music for Naruto. Their music is like a pop, punk, alternative, rock conglomerate.

Ninth grade students are taken to a small isolated island with a map, food and various arms. They have to fight each other three days long until the last one remains and are forced to wear a special collar which will explode when they break a rule.

Holy Toledo!

Basically, imagine what highschool would've been like if we'd been allowed & encouraged to maim, shoot, stab and otherwise kill our classmates.

woot!

Rushmore was cooler IYAM, and I guess you'd classify it as more Indie in its lack of Ben Stiller. As for Battle Royale.... "infamous" is the word that comes to mind.

Also, for indie-esque listening pleasure, try Pinback.

Lots of Indie is crap. Lots of Indie I like.

Isn't it the same as in every other music genre?
