Any good indie rock bands you could recommend?

Asked by Paul (2717points) July 10th, 2011

I was wondering if you have any recommendations. I found a quite unknown band, The Black Rabbits and was looking for another unknown or good indie band to listen to.

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Not a big fan of Spells, I liked LV, I LOVED NMH (downloading now), LLTB good but I can’t find it anywhere & finally CC my favourite of the lot. Thanks you two.

Freelance Whales, Bon Iver, David Ford, Russian Red, and The Sudden Passion.

Also, check out the Mountain Goats. They’re the best band in the entire universe.

@KatetheGreat Can’t give enough Great Answers just for listing The Mountain Goats.

A few of my favorites are: Architecture in Helsinki, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah!, The Fiery Furnaces, Headlights, King Creosote, Man Man, and The Walkmen.

@amujinx The Mountain Goats are my absolute most favorite band in the entire world. I can play most of their songs on guitar and own every piece of memorabilia that they have ever produced. :) <3

And do you not like spelling things out? Hahaha, initialisms for everything!

According to’s user statistics, people who listened to the The Black Rabbits tended to listen to these groups too. And there’s a list of similar artists on this page determined by Pandora’s music analyists and algorithms (and similar albums to Hypno Switch here).

I’ve come to trust the “wisdom of the crowd” more than Pandora’s scheme, though Pandora will occasionally turn up an ace, so I haven’t totally abandoned them.
