What is the best new indie band of 2008?

Asked by DieAlone (32points) January 9th, 2008

Definition of new: They have 1 album and it came out in 2008 OR they have no album, but it will come out in 2008. Bonus points for not being your band. ;)

It’s been 9 days… where is all the new talent?

The Virgin Tongues is supposed to come out with their first album in mid June. They are not really indie—more like the Velvet Underground but they do have a few indie songs that they play at concerts only

MGMT is good. I really like Fleet foxes. They just released an EP on Sub Pop, and the remind me a little of Band of Horses.

She and Him (aka Zooey Dechanel and M. Ward)

Never heard of MGMT, but will check them out!

Bon Iver. For sure. His album was written in a cabin in Wisconsin during the dead of winter and the feel of the music tells it.

Try to read an article or two about him (specifically in Paste Magazine). That’s a link to the article!

though I don’t keep up with such things really, I urge you all to check out Prince Rama of Ayodhya, whose first release did come out in 2008.
