Sweet Disposition by The Temper Trap
Vagabond by Wolfmother

Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley, Ingrid Michaelson, Kings of Leon, The Strokes, and Death Cab for Cutie are all great indie bands/artists. Indie was all I listened to in high school, PM me if you want more suggestions/details.

What Happens When the Heart Just Stops by The Frames. Everything off For the Birds is brilliant. One of my favourite albums.

I’m Your Puppet by Gregory and the Hawk.

Balloons by Julia Nunes.

@le_inferno My friends tease me for loving Bright Eyes, but I love them to pieces anyway :)

Also, look for the band Moth!Fight! if you can find them. They don’t exist anymore, and they have no non-live recordings on youtube, but you may be able to find them on torrent or itunes or limewire or something… it’s worth it if you can find any of their songs, but keep an eye out for “Hopscotch” or “Hopscotch Pt II”.

Seriously, check out NMH’s Holland 1945 and Oh Comely from In the Aeroplane over the Sea
