Epitonic is -awesome- for finding new bands, sign up for an account and use the radio thingy, it gives you a mix of bands from the genre you selected.

hating the radio crap is the first step to becoming an indie fan :P

id recommend Last.FM... generally, if you search for a good band they give you more good bands. lots of indie groups/forums on there too.

Epitonic again is also very good. and so are we

a clever way to show off the fact that you have a boyfriend...just kidding.

yojimbo, start with Bright Eyes, Death Cab for Cutie, or Neutral Milk Hotel. Also check out these record labels: Arts & Crafts, Saddle Creek, Elephant 6.
Eventually you'll be finding more bands than you can handle, just remember just because its indie rock doesn't mean its good. you'll probably run into a lot of crap before you find some of the more obscure great ones.

Just go there and anything I listen to, you download.
