    Haven't seen an Indie music thread before (or really any Indie-related threads for that matter) and I know there is a good amount of NTers on here that listen to this stuff.

    Was thinking we could use this thread to post what you're listening to at the moment, some of your favorite albums, discussion about recent albums, necessities, put some more NTers onto Indie, etc.

    Some of my favorite albums (could consider some as necessities as well) (in no particular order) (Artist - Album):

    Beach House - Teen Dream

    [​IMG]

    Beach House - Bloom

    [​IMG]

    Fiona Apple - Tidal

    [​IMG]

    Bon Iver - Bon Iver, Bon Iver

    [​IMG]

    The xx - xx

    [​IMG]

    Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago

    [​IMG]

    Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti - Before Today

    [​IMG]

    Lana Del Rey - Born To Die

    [​IMG]

    Lykke Li - Youth Novels

    [​IMG]

    Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion

    Fiona Apple - The Idler Wheel.....

    Okay before we start. What classifies as indie? A lot of those artists are on major labels

    In my itunes, I have no idea what genre a lot of bands belogn to so I end up just putting alternative or ide

    Ah for some reason I didn't recognize the album art. Thought they had a newer one out and I got hype for a minute.

    Like I said, I have no idea what classifies as Indie. This band might be folk, but I just found out about them the other day and really like what I've heard so far

    Yeah, Indie was kind of broad. I meant for this thread to be a discussion about Indie and about genres that are very close to Indie -- such as Alternative, Folk, Dream Pop, etc.

    Will be checking out some of the vids posted later though.
