Er, yay for indie rock...?!

The Virgins (LOVE them! So funky [] )
French Kicks
Fujiya & Miyagi
The Helio Sequence
MGMT
The Sounds []

And of course Vampire Weekend, which someone already mentioned. On Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist soundtrack there is a new song "Ottoman" by them which I recommend.

I know, I know, I have amazing taste in music. [] []

Freya - my boyfriend told me about TV on the Radio.... we really like the one song "Wolf Like Me" but the others are hard to get into. I love the lead singer though. []

Sufjan Stevens

Beautiful, inspiring American folk music.

The myspace is very poor; just take a risk and buy Seven Swans []

Aina Moja, I heard about the Christmas album. Is it any good? []

Another recommend: Bat For Lashes. Not for everyone; sort of Fiest meets Bjork. I love it

Anyone ever hear of Cloud Cult? My brother just got me into them last night [] I'm listening to their "Feel Good Ghosts" album. My favorite song so far is "When Water Comes to Life" []

I think they are compared to Modest Mouse, as far as vocal stylings? It's an indy sound with strings, which is what attracts me. Strings = []

As a rule I don't like rap as it isn't really music to me with its ripoff sampling and babble. But there always seems to be an exception to a rule if you look for it. I do like Seth Sentry's Waitress Song in all its simplicity and storytelling. That & back in '85 I had the very same experience nearly everyday at the Starting Gate Cafe.

This is a great Dutch band: Krezip. This is their latest single, and sadly also their last because they've decided to quit...

There is some great electronic music around right now, and a crop of really good "synther-songwriters" (awful term) basically folk/rock music which incorporates synths and beats and electronic sounds. I love it

Some notables:

James Yuill is a young British artist that fits this category perfectly. Don't think he has an album deal yet but definitely one to look out for. Also Brit group Elbow have this type of sound and their latest album is really excellent.

Empire of the Sun are an awesome electronic pop band from Australia, nice and chilled and perfect for a rainy Sunday morning. They are quite similar to fellow Aussies Cut Copy; definitely worth checking out if you've not heard already.

What a coincidence Freya - very recently I saw an Elbow performance on a show called Jools Holland, I believe - I hadn't heard of either the show or the band before.
They played two songs, one of which was One Day Like This. I really liked all of the layering and such (and the fact that the violin & cello players also formed the backing vocalists [] ) but I must admit that the repetitiveness of the bassline began to annoy me after a while.

People who speak Dutch should really listen to Ken Je Mij (Do You Know Me) by Trijntje Oosterhuis (she's tried going international by the name of Traincha ). The lyrics to this song written by her father are so beautiful.
The album Ken Je Mij also contains a lot of english songs - Burt Bacharach covers, "Blackbird" by the Beatles, etcetera.

E: Looking for english songs by Traincha I found this coloboration between her and Krezip (see my last post). Just thought it was funny [] . The video shows them singing a fragment of Krezip's first hit single (and it was a big hit here in the Netherlands) I Would Stay.

I remember that title - I think it was the first song they played. While I was doing something else. []
Can't seem to find a good torrent either and my pc is too slow for YouTube (how pathetic is that [] ) so I'll listen to some more when I visit my parents tomorrow.

Another Dutch band which doesn't exist anymore: Leaf. They've only got one album, Life's A Beach, but it's so nice and summery I can't keep it from you with this lovely weather.
These were all hits in Holland, especially the first one (I actually covered this song on my demo, too). I especially like the bass lines, they're really creative.
They are graduates from the same school I want to go to []

I am trying to get into Bat for Lashes, however I like Feist much better. (I've seen her twice! [] )

I downloaded Cloud Cult, Empire of the Sun (who has a free single on Itunes BTW), and Elbow. I am liking all three so far...

For my part I highly recommend Lykke Li to anyone who hasn't heard of her yet. [] The remixes of her songs are all fabulous!!!

Edit: I already had an Elbow song, I just discovered. They covered U2's Running to Stand Still, and you know I gots my U2 in the bag. []

I've been listening to Gossip recently and I really like the sound. Beth Ditto's voice is amazing! And she's a big girl too, so it's cool to see her being the front woman in an age of tiny twigs. [] She has quite a set of lungs on her.
