As of right now, I agree.

I can't tell if you're fishing for a flame or not, being new and all, but the reason I checked this forum out was to hopefully find something new.

I hate sub-dividing genres, but I look for coherent type art rock which is what I think of indie, but i think it's probably just some of those bands that I like have been considered indie.

But as far as the boring, I've been feeling a bit under-stimulated with the music selection myself. My last good find was The Fall 'I am, Kurious Oranj.'

On the note of Aussie indie, it reminded me immediately of Steve Kilby (The Church's 'Heyday' is one of my favorites).

I got some of The Jesus Lizard can anyone suggest some bands that are similar to them?
The Birthday Party. Also, two of the members of Jesus Lizard were in a band together called Scratch Acid in the 1980s. Theres a cd that has all of their recprdings on it called The Greatest Gift.

Math Rock-Music that strays from the typical 4/4 rock and is usually progesive. The typical math rock time signature uses an odd number on top and most of the time an 8 on bottom. Meters are often changed to add a different texture. Patterns are often used and vocals tend to be low in the mix. It's often mixed with other genres such as post-hardcore, post-punk or post-rock while still keeping a threaded sound.
Examples: Polvo, Piglet, June of 44, Drive Like Jehu, Q and Not U, Meneguar, Dakota/Dakota, Faraquet, Tera Melos, Unwound, Chavez, A Minor Forest, Dianogah,

add it hoes.
