Well said.

From what I can gather there is a lot of people here with eclectic tastes. I see alot of bands Ive never heard of in the albums youre diggin thread.

I mostly only float around in the reggae forum and general music so I dont have that much awareness on the forum as a whole but based on what ive seen i would say this place has people who dig a little bit of everything.

Indie is the same as obscure and there are lesser known mainstream genres as well which falls under obscure. The forum overall caters to that as well as rock

Yet another ignorant post from my favorite member.

"Independent music (often shortened to indie music or indie) is music produced independently from major commercial record labels or their subsidiaries"

Independent music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Some of the most well-known artists ever are indie artists.

Great input!

Now let me ask you this...

So if it is independent music that is backed by a label that is not commercial or mainstream (which can make independent artists hard to discover and less accessible to the general public) that means they are less well known than the mainstream artists. That means they are not playing on the radio, backed by the industry or commercialized so it would be harder to know about them unless you already are a fan or found out about them by researching. I am just curious as to how you personally would define that since you don't think that independent/indie music is obscure?

The dictionary definition of Obscure is "not discovered or known about;not well-known; not known to most people;likely to be understood by only a few people " so how would you define it since you disagree with the universal definition?

Has she never heard of Pitchfork or something?

Just because **** ain't on the radio doesn't mean nobody discovers it lol what a short-sighted thing to say

Good luck trying to argue that like Vampire Weekend for example is an obscure band despite them being indie.

This statement is short sighted lol

If you read over the obscure definition I gave it states that only a few people know about it but that does not mean a mass majority knows about a indie artist like they would a mainstream artist. Yea they have their niche fan base and some don't even have that. It still does not change the fact that they are obscure to the masses.
