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



Beach House - Bloom



Fiona Apple - Tidal



Bon Iver - Bon Iver, Bon Iver



The xx - xx



Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago



Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti - Before Today



Lana Del Rey - Born To Die



Lykke Li - Youth Novels



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

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.
