I've been a fan of punk, classic rock and blues rock for years, but I've been getting more into "indie rock" lately. So what are some good indie bands to check out? When I say indie, I guess I am talking about a certain sound, not so much what kind of label the band plays under- but I'm not sure if all "indie" acts sound similar? Anyway, these are the bands I've been listening to lately that I like, so I was wondering if anyone can recommend any bands based on these ones I listen to: Metric, Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie, The Shins, The Decemberists, Elliot Smith..etc. These acts are all obviously different, some more so than others, but these bands are the kind of sound I'm looking to find more of. If any one can recommend anything I'd appreciate it! Thanks!
