A little bit. :P They're probably the absolute most famous "indie" band ever. Aeroplane... practically defined the indie sound.

Well, In The Aeroplane Over The Sea got a 10 on Pitchfork, which means liking them instantly gives you indie cred. I think they're probably one of the more widely known bands of their type (meaning, quirky lyrics with an instantly recognizable and easily dislikable lead singer).

Ok, I guess they're not the most widely known indie band, but everyone who knows anything about indie has heard of them. Other indie groups like Franz Ferdinand are more popular, but that's because a lot of people who aren't "indie" like them.

By the way, I listened to Aeroplane and found it incredibly boring. I don't get the hype around them at all. The same went for Source Tags and Codes by ...And You Will Know Us By Our Unbelievably Pretentious Name, another Pitchfork 10.

Basically, what I'm trying to say is that Pitchfork sucks.

In my case, In The Aeroplane Over The Sea grew on me tremendously. I went from being initially indifferent to having the entire thing stuck in my head (though not all at once, but I'm sure every little bit of it has been at one point).

Source Tags And Codes, I think the 10 rating was definitely a mistake, but it also doesn't seem to have anywhere near the same sort of respect as NMH get. I don't think it's so much that pitchfork rated it a 10 and so everyone has to love it, because the certainly isn't the same with Trail of Dead (in fact, their albums since have been pretty poorly received, even by pitchfork). I think a lot of people discover NMH because of pitchfork, and I think the fact that they gave it a 10 means that you can't really claim to know a lot about indie music and not know about it.

Not sure about overseas, but I don't think they are too obscure over here (I've heard of them enough times).

Well its nice to know other people enjoy Neutral milk, even if I do feel a bit sheepish.

Anyway, I'm going to cheat and mention a local band here in Utah called Coup De Grace.

They are not on Last.fm, but heres their Myspace which has a sampling. I can only describe it as instrumental, or "post-rock" is what its called I guess. Before you ask, I'm not affiliated with this band at all other than being a fan.

I don't know if they're more popular in the US but I love the Dillinger Escape Plan. No one over here has even heard of them but I think they're awesome. The Ire Works Album is one of my current favorites.

They're obviously very technically good, but I don't like them at all. I had to sit through them live once (I was there for The Locust, who opened) and hated every minute of their set.

Neutral Milk Hotel are one of my all-time favourite bands. There are very few songwriters who manage to put as much of themselves into their songs as Jeff Mangum did. In The Aeroplane and On Avery Island are both, in my view, stunningly beautiful records. (And - scout's honour - I promise I didn't hear about them from Pitchfork. ^_^)

In the spirit of this thread, here are 4 really good local bands/musickers from Melbourne, Australia:

Alex and the Ramps
(--a very cool, kinda schizophrenic explosion of various incongruous facets of indie, with a lot of dancing, and a fair portion of strangeness. Currently touring Canada, and threatening to get bigger very soon.)
http://www.myspace.com/aleksandtheramps

Wil Wagner
(--Will is a good friend of mine, but that's not why I recommend him. I recommend him because he's awesome. He writes furious acoustic folk-punk with such an unerring sense of melody and poetic honesty that it's goddamn impossible to resist him - at least when in the same room as him, with his larger-than-life personage shaking and bellowing at you. Listen to the live versions of "I Envy Birds" and "About Bombs" first - he's like a benevolent tornado live. I saw him for the first time with a full rock band just last night, and it was stupidly awesome. Retardedly excellent. If the shining eyes and awe-struck expressions of everyone in the crowds he's just played to are any indication, he's only on his way up.)
http://www.myspace.com/wilwagner

Hilda In The Woods
(--another band of friends. Whenever they play live, they're tentative, their guitars are out of tune, their songs are unfinished, and they're great. Don't ask me how - they just are.)
http://www.myspace.com/hildainthewoods

A. Wallace
(--this guy is actually amazing. When I saw him play live at a house party for the first time - a enormous, shy-looking guy with this stunning faqlsetto that came out of nowhere, I found myself more moved than I had been in years - by music, or by anything else. He gave me his album tucked into the back sleeve of a children's book, and it's become one of my most-listened-to albums since then. The songs on the myspace don't remotely do justice to the experience of listening to his album in the dark - he really is not a myspace kind of artist - but you can download it from his blog there, and I sincerely hope you do. There are certain people who are destined never to become famous, but just to refine and perfect one specific artistic thing, and change the lives of the few people who do hear him.)

As far as I know, few people out of Ontario/Canada have heard of Hawksley Workman, but he's my favourite hometown export. Alternative pop with more than a few slow, ballad-y songs.

You can listen to an entire album, legally and for free, at http://radio3.cbc.ca/bands/Hawksley-Workman. "You and the Candles" is my own recommendation. The end of the world can be surprisingly romantic.

Domestic Problems

From Grand Rapids, MI

http://www.myspace.com/officialdomesticproblems

used to see these guys in tiny clubs in central/west Michigan. You might've seen them since they've toured with Rusted Root, Ben Folds Five, Soul Coughing, They Might Be Giants, Blues Traveler, and a few more, but they've never had their own nationwide tour AFAIK, nor have they ever had a music video or been played on anything but local radio.

Lykke Li. She is from Sweden, and her music is chill and also excellent. Examples:

Dish. They're a local unsigned indie band in DeLand, Florida (Smack dab between Daytona and Orlando.) and are really, very good. Two brothers. One plays guitar, and the other bangs against random items, while still managing to make it sound organized and rhythmic. If you want to hear them, I suggest searching for them. I believe they have a MySpace page. Best song (I think) is Pictora. They're good returning-from-ze-beach music.

Silversun Pickups. Indie. Not very famous. You may have heard Lazy Eye on the radio. Also pretty good returning-from-ze-beach music.

Regina Spektor. So indie, she's practically anti-indie. More accurately described as Anti-folk, with some hints of Jazz in a lot of her songs. She's not a band, and I believe she's been mentioned two or three times in various comics/webstore. Actually, she's everywhere, now. I think she has a song in the latest Narnia movie. xP

You've probably heard Fidelity, On The Radio, Samson, or some other songs. I would say her best songs are in her first three albums, although, now that I think about it, she keeps her general flavor throughout all albums, with some slight evolving over the years. Her latest album has a lot of new flavor, though.

The Dissipated 8 - An A Capella choir from a college. They're pretty cool, they've covered songs from a pretty big range. Phish, Jimi Hendrix, Paul Simon.
Streetlight Manifesto - Cool Third Wave Ska band (I think. Maybe I just have no idea what I'm talking about.) I dunno what the music demographic is here.
Pulp (maybe). - I dunno what you crazy folks in Europe listen to, but I don't think they're popular in the States. A britpop band that's done a fair bit of albums.

I'm sure you guys have pointed out Mute Math. They're well known for their video of Video, which is played backwards.

Band - I AM

One album, self titled I believe. They were from Las Vegas and I believe went on tour in '95. http://www.frankklepacki.com/ has their music, plus all C&C music for anybody that plays it besides me!

The Dillinger Escape Plan is great, but I've only really listened to Calculating Infinity and the cover of Aphex Twin's Come to Daddy (Pappy Mix), with Mike Patton. I'm still yet to check out Miss Machine.

What about The Residents? They're not really as "underground" as it seems, I guess, but they're reasonably obscure. I'm a big fan of Meet the Residents, and they have a load of other great stuff as well.

My favorite Residents album is "Not Available", followed by "Mark of the Mole", and "Eskimo".

A late 90s band that had a similar mindset to The Residents, but with a hardcore background, was "Men's Recovery Project".

Dunno if anyone here has heard of them (I did a search and got no results) but I just got into the band Sukilove the other day. (Actually, Carol van Dyk from Bettie Serveert/Chitlin' Fooks suggested them to me via MySpace email--Pascal Deweze sings in both Sukilove and Chitlin' Fooks) To me, they sound like Sonic Youth, sprinkled liberally with Spoon, and a dash of The Shins, at least in the mp3s I've found online. (The last one especially in their song "Sun Sun Sun," which reminds me somewhat of The Shins' "Sleeping Lessons.") I loved them from note one. "You Kill Me" is my favorite track on their MySpace player. I need to see if I can find any of their CDs.

I would also like to take this opportunity to recommend Chitlin' Fooks (yeah, you knew that was coming, didn't you) for the alternative-country lovers. I found their debut CD at my favorite record store and I love it more and more with every listen. I'm going to buy the second one when I go back to that store. (Carol said she was surprised I found them, as "they were only a small release!")

I've never met anyone else who listened to Annie Haslam's Renaissance, but apparently they used to be huge! If I were to try and pin down what they are (I have no idea how to apply genres to music; I know that Oasis and Pulp are Britpop but that's about it) I would say that they are a mixture of folk and classical. Oh, and they tend to tell stories through their music. Their most famous piece is called Song of Scheherazade. So there we go. Has anyone heard of them?

If not, I have everything they ever recorded and am very happy to distribute songs to people who express an interest.

Wir Sind Helden - The most bestest German band ever, even beterer than kraftwerk. I don't speak a work of German, but they are so good I went all the way to see them live and they where brilliant live! http://www.last.fm/music/Wir+sind+Helden

Sargasso Trio - A couple of boppy little tunes http://www.myspace.com/sargassotrio

Nizlopi - Rather famous for the JCB song, but I assure you they did some good ones too http://www.last.fm/music/Nizlopi

EEEE I love the Helden!!! I have Die Reklamation (found it at my favorite record store) and I'm searching for Von Hier an Blind. I like Judith Holofernes' voice a lot. (I can even sing along with "Du erkennst mich nicht wieder" even though I only know what about half a dozen of the words mean)

Since this thread's come back, I may as well mention my favourite unsigned indie band from Fresno, Rachemacher. They just released a CD that's got their first four EPs all on one disc, and their debut full-length Stunts is amazing.
I have nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.
