What are some of your favorite indie bands?

I love an acoustic sound and I love bands/singers that aren't quite mainstream. Some of my favorites are: Benji Hughes, Capitol City Lights, Jason Reeves, A Fine Frenzy, Colbie Caillat, David Gray, The Airborne Toxic Event, Nada Surf, One Republic.

So what are some of your favorite indie bands/singers with similar sounds?

  • No, I didn't see that movie. I heard "Popular" the other day on my local alternative station's Retro show. Total blast from the past, as I was a teenager in the 90's.
    I suggested to someone here the other day about checking to find artists similar to those you already like. Might be worth browsing if you haven't already!

  • The Shins are pretty good.
    Nada Surf--didn't they do that song "Popular" back in the 90's?

  • Yes, that is a Nada Surf song. Have you seen the movie August Rush? I wish I could find music similar to that. I love the way the styles blend and I actually thought JRM did a great job on vocals.
