Does anyone in this forum listen to indie music or just a big fan of music in general? I've been out of the loop for a few months- which for some is like a few years- and just found out that one of my favorite music blogs is out of commission. I've been listening to Grizzly Bear, Beach House, and Crystal Castles lately - just to let to you guys know what type of music I like :). But by all means, I'm open to any new suggestions as long the artists aren't endorsed by Disney :tongue:

SixNationState:



Don't ask me how I discovered them, as it's a long story, but they released one superb album on Jeepster Records two years ago and are one of my favourite bands now. Unfortunately they're kind of in limbo at the moment, as their label is basically out of money, but I hope they'll come out with a new album one of these days. I don't make a point of seeking out "indie" bands in particular though, I just listen to anything I happen to like. :bored: Which, thank god, does not include the likes of Justin Beiber, Lady Gaga, Disney artists, etc...

haha thanks guys. Familiar w/ all those artists except for sixnationstate. I think I'll give him a few listens. Yourstruly- I always feel l like a badass listening to the Kills and I'm always left with a sensation of putting on a leather jacket for some reason. The guitar also has this raw gritty sound, as if it just finished smoking a pack of Marlboro Reds and took shot of whiskey.f
