Bands like Cows, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Pussy Galore, Brainiac, Boss Hog, godheadSilo, Jawbox and Butthole Surfers may appeal?

Perhaps ''the Go! team''?

Of that whole list I was only really very enthusiastic about Boss Hog. They were pretty awesome.

I also found Rocket From The Crypt on accident as a similar artist to... somebody. Anyway, they were freakin' awesome, so thanks for suggesting them cause I found a band I DO really like, even if it wasn't on your list. Hahahahaha.

Thanks for the help, guys.

Dont give up on bands like Cows (get Cunning Stunts, seriously great album) and Jon Spencer (Extra Width), they do not always sit well with the listener initially but, given a few listens, it hits home.

That's weird. Caravan also has an album called The Cunning Stunts.

Im really into indie bands but lately have had a hard time coming by any new ones. I know indie can range into a wide variety of genre's but im more into indie folk/pop. Keep it on the lighter side of things.
