Florence and the machine i think would be a good example.
Most things with violins, tiny bells, and/or Big drums id like as long as the singing isn't too bad. I like voices to harmonize if there is more than one singer.
If anyone has any recommendations they would be much appreciated.
If you also want to look at other music i like here is my LastFM username

A Whisper in the Noise would be a GREAT band for you to try.

Are they still considered to be 'together' as a band, and does anyone know if they're supposed to be putting out new stuff anytime soon?
Maybe they are, but you should check out the Dead Weather in the meantime. I'd probably classify them as noisebluesmetal or something. Jack White plays drums.

Can anyone recommend a band that's similar to the sort of Indie/Shoegaze/Electronic sound of The Depreciation Guild?

Not so much electronica sounding, but it's got that mellow dreamy feel to it:

Alright, this request might be vague, but... maybe you guys can help me. I've been neglecting indie a while and I really need to start listening to it more. If you guys have a suggestion for a REALLY great album, then that would be great. I prefer something with meaning and a bit of experimental sound isn't a bad thing either. - Thanks

I would love for you guys to give a listen to my band Thomas Medicine's new album "Schizophrenifesto" and give me any input on bands currently playing with whom we might identify.
