What music you listening to?

Posted 06 February 2011 - 12:47 PM

I have been listening to a lot of indie lately. Like Modest Mouse, Arcade fire and also some techno. Just wondering and if anybody has any suggestions. Post what you like.

Are bands that perform on SNL considered "indie"? Seriously? Seems a stretch.

I'm quite sure I listen to music you -- as a complete young'un -- have never heard of nor would care for. And some of it is TRULY indie...what I was listening to at the gym today was a CD financed up-front completely by fans of the band. Sadly, although they're a band from California, they're really only popular in Europe, so I will likely never get to see them live. This is the case with many of the bands to whom I listen.

I just called it indie because that is what Itunes said it was. :P
But I am not as naive as you might think. I don't listen to a lot of old bands but I listen to Pink Floyd like Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, Animals, and one of their first albums: Meddle.

Also one of the lead members in the band when he left he had a great solo career. Roger Waters. I got some great albums by him. Also went to see him in Phoenix, Arizona live which was utterly incredible.

Mostly last century stuff for me. (Damn it I'm feeling old!) Bon Jovi is always a favorite and will be seeing them live in Montreal on the 18th!

JackOfAllTrades I guess they were indie before lots of people found them.

Currently listening to Deerhoof.

And who cares if they are playing on SNL? If they are still producing good music, I don't care. Music should be shared. It just so happens that commercial music sucks. :)

indie rock is a sub-genre of alternative, it is not a description meaning 'independent of labels'

I listen to dude's dongs slapping bongo's. Soothing. Relaxing. Invigorating. You should try it. It's indie.

@lordofduct is Stereo Lab French pop? I know some of their songs are in French... but I think the band was from England.

Deadmau5 is great, depending on which album you're downloading, you may like Nero too.

I don't think I've heard many good American indie bands, but can name a bunch of Brit bands you might like:

Jetplane Landing
The View
The Holloways
Little Man Tate
The Pigeon Detectives
Maxïmo Park

I could go on, but I can't be bothered. I recommend trying something like last.fm and just start a radio based on one of those. Can't go too wrong.

As for what I'm listening to, a little bit of everything.

[edit]ooh, also try Air Traffic[/edit]
