Smile Favourite Alt-indie songs

For everyone and MariaExpressesHerself who mentions The White Stripes.

What's feelings on The Raconteurs (another Jack White project).

Also, related to bands out of The Netherlands, do you - or anybody - have any additional ones to the 2 below and/or any general neo-garage? - (Besides the big states and British ones from 2000 on):

Black Box Revelation - Belgium
Mando Diao - Switzerland

And, do you know of an all-female punk band out of a Scandinavian country, too? Not from early punk, but sometime since 2000. I'd found; don't remember name and was interested (also to pass on to another).

(Not sure if I should have started a new thread for this, or not.) Thanks!

From what I've heard of them I kinda like them, but I much prefer the White Stripes

I try to stay away from Dutch music, because popular Dutch music is some of the worst ****e there is and it scared me away from trying to find the good stuff. Some Dutch bands that I do like:
-Jungle by Night: an afrobeat band from Amsterdam, they're fun
-Pip Blom: has a bit of a Courtney Barnett vibe, but not nearly as good. I like some of her songs

there is one piece of Dutch music that I really love: the songs of the 60's TV musical Ja Zuster Nee Zuster, written by Annie MG Schmidt, who is like the Dutch equivalent of Astrid Lindgren (but not nearly as good. If only Astrid Lidgren had made a musical). The songs are probably not as fun without the understanding of the lyrics and the childhood nostalgia, but whatever, they're amazing to me. They also re-recorded the songs when I was a kid for a film version but the originals are the good ****.

they really like to collaborate and experiment, many times withafrican musicians, they have a release with tortoise, but my favs are the albums with cellist tom cora.

I've chosen this one as a kind of "whatare you listening to now" clip because Wilco have been on my To Do list for some time, mainly because of their connection to Uncle Tupelo:-


And right at the end of your lists, yes! I really like (most of) Spacemen 3, who caught my attention when I heard those two "walking with Jesus" songs.
I love “I am trying to break your heart” so goood
