Default Best Indie Band Country?

Which country do you think has the best indie music right now.

My vote goes to Sweden.

want to explain why you think that?

You seem in an awful hurry to want to get to 15 posts.

Well, #1 is because I am Swedish. #2 is because I like the current Swedish indie scene.

And I guess #3 would be to spark some debate and hear about other countries with good music. And discuss which ones have the best music. Isn't that the point of a forum?

I do like the swedish indie scene...a lot of good bands. Lacrosse, Sambassadeur, The Tallest Man On Earth, Love Is All etc. I love them all, but I still can't help but love the American and Canadian Indie bands more.

Definitely Canada. I haven't thought about this, but when I saw this thread I went through my Last.fm and my internal library and found that most of them were from Canada, a few from the US, and one from Australia. It makes since that Canada would have a lot of indie music, I suppose.

Would the OP care to name Swedish bands of interest?

The Guatemalan Indie-Pop scene is quite something at the moment.

*Probably America, most of my favourite Indie bands are yanks. Canada and the UK deserve a strong mention too.

Seriously, at the moment it's definitely the USA followed by Canada. I don't know whether it's me but the UK seems to be asleep at the moment, there seems to be very few interesting new indie bands coming out of the UK in the past couple of years. Per capita though Iceland has an incredible DIY indie music scene.
