A list of great bands you're missing out on:
Animal Collective
Mouse On Mars
Tortoise
Red Sparrowes
Foals (well, their older stuff was better)
Pelican
Giraffes? Giraffes!

Now, I really like the band **** Buttons, but the band name is a major disadvantage when your aunt is going through your MP3 player. But yet again, Obscene name = not having them become too mainstream and have them lose all of their droney ten-minute long goodness.

I know, Empire! Empire! would actually be a pretty cool name, but the last part just wrecks it. But I hate it less now that I found out what it means.

Also - here's your vegetable vs fruit trivia for the day:

Fruit has seeds. Vegetables do not. People, lots of things you think are vegetables are actually fruit

And also hell yes to Red Sparrowes too

Like I said in my post... there are rare exceptions. I consider The Animals to be one of those. (Although I don't consider them to be an "indie" band

As I said in my post... there are exceptions.
