    The thread to discuss the new mainstream so called anti mainstream music that is what it is. I so wanted to call this thread Indie Faggots Assemble! but I couldn't...Or Could I? Fuck yes I will till Dave or some concerned mod does change it. As you know I'm not an Indie Kid so I'm gonna disappear now. I just thought this thread needed making. I'm handing this to Lamb or whoever wants to ride this pony to the glue factory. Arcade Fire blah blah blah

    Is M.I.A. indie? I also like Vampire Weekend? I have no idea how this genre is defined.

    It's not a genre, per say. :wink

    as much as a bunch of faggots who like to dress like they're 40 years older than they are, usually in clothes that cost a lot more than they should considering they were bought at thrift stores, and talk about how a band was better before their current release.

    We also tend to pretend to like art that has "depth" instead of emotion and movies that spend all their time wanking about with "character depth" while ignoring plot.

    "Indie Music" is just a rag tag of these people who make unsophisticated music ranging from folk to hip-hop, skipping metal, and occaisionally diddling jazz's wiener.

    Only real requirement is an indie label (which is suspect considering the amount of "indie kids" who like Death Cab For Cutie and Rilo Kiley post major label debut.

    I don't like this term, "indie faggot." Moe/w even called me that in a PM. Such audacity! So a taste in independently produced guitar pop of various degrees of dissonance means you have a diminished masculinity? I think you should be ashamed of yourself for such language, and those who allow it to continue should be embarassed. This is an outrage, and I am deeply offended!!!



    Now, IF YOU'LL EXCUSE ME, I'm off to my bathroom; I have my new Saddle Creek mixtape to listen to while applying a LONG overdue cucumber mask.

    Most black metal is independent. Does that count? X3

    Okay, but seriously I like some music that qualifies as indie, but I want to know more.

    GTFO FAGET! :eud

    Quite :quite

    Logh + Owen + The Robot Ate Me + The Verve? D:

    /dls

    oh and I totally second the Jove thing, I tend to like too much non-Indie stuff, and I be stealing shit from his band name drops all the time. :edu

    It'd be so fucking hot if The Walkmen released a great album, but I admit I have lowered my expectations as far as modern post-punk bands go, it always feels like they release one or two fabulous releases, and then completely die musically. :D:

    I mean, the difference between albums like Silent Alarm and A Weekend In The City or Turn On The Bright Lights and Antics(can't talk about Our Love To Admire major label release and the kind of album that makes me wish it hadn't been made.)


    Though, by far, my biggest indie disappointment was Elephant Shell by Tokyo Police Club. I had high hopes for that album, and it failed to deliver. :(

    That's so true. But if The Walkmen only have Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me Is Gone and Bows + Arrows to their name, Hamilton Leithauser can die peacefully. And I just remembered that their new album comes out the same day as the new Stereolab!

    I also just want to point out that Hamilton Leithauser is the coolest fucking name ever.

    Antics... :uwah

    Turn On The Bright Lights was just soo much better. :D:


    Half the songs on Antics feel so unnatural and I never understood how Slow Hands got to be a single seeing as it makes me feel like tearing out my ears, same with Narc actually.

    That being said, C'mere, Take You On A Cruise, Next Exit and Not Even Jail are beautiful. :p

    What really soured me on Antics was that they ruined "A Time to Be So Small." The version of that on the Precipitate EP was incredible. The one on Antics was just boring. And "Slow Hands," that song seemed like an Interpol parody.

    They got so upstaged by Arcade Fire in '04, and then again in '07. :amuse
