Top Ten Best Indie Rock Bands
The Contenders: Page 9
BEST INDIE BAND! AMAZING good feeling music, hidden gem!
One of the best bands nowadays!
Page Hamilton is a juggernaut and Amphetamine Reptile Records was just so lucky to discover and sign his outfit of the time. Amazingly Helmet exists to this day, although Hamilton remains the sole original member. Foundation-influential in the hard rock genre coming out of the early 90's and to be respected for their influence overall on the genre.
Strays into indie pop territory but has very much rock elements. I'd recommend starting with The Sophtware Slump. It's a stunningly atmospheric album, melancholic, about the fear of technology and mechanization, etc. Sweet vocals, fuzzy guitar work, dreamlike.
Awesome band if you are looking for something great that much people don't know about this is it but they're so good just not know
Lovely music by lovely people. Unique and real
I dare the UNIVERSE to bring me something better! I could never get sick of how creative their songs are and how they do everything for music,instead of fame!
I get why they/he isn't higher up. As was said before, only known bands make the top ten. Hell, even the smaller bands on here seem to be only known by their big songs, but the fact there hasn't been a single comment made is kind of amazing. John darnielle was short listed for the nation book award and is probably a better writer than a good percentage of the bands in here plus, for how prolific and long running they are, they've been consistently good. Plus they seem to be one of those acts that seems to get age very well.
Maybe not the best Indie band, but they are more indie than most of the items on this list.V 2 Comments
Songs like Cannibal Queen and Dark Tower, are incredible. Beautiful dreamy and haunting melodies on Dark Tower, really great to listen to at night. Cannibal Queen is unbelievably catchy and again has the dreamy fantasy element. MY FAVOURITE BAND EVER. They are what got me into Indie in the first place.
I'm a huge fan of this band, I thought it could be in at least the best fifty. I think that if try to listen to some of their music you could love them.
I'm Spanish so sorry for the spelling
PLEASE listen to this band if you like indie, or music in general in for that matter. A great band with James Mercer from the Shins and Danger Mouse from Gnarls Barkley.V 2 Comments
Probably the only one listening to them in India
AWESOME AWESOME UNDERRATED BAND! LISTEN RIGHT NOW MAN. GREAT YOUNG AUSSIES making US PROUD
Grouplove are simply the best thing that happened to this world in music! LOVE every song of theirs
They have awesome songs and the way the music sounds, the beats, the singing, fits really good.
This band is excellent! One of the best around right now.
They are very experimental and passionate, most of all.V 3 Comments
Definitely should be higher, along with Sigur Ros for bands on this page.
Amazing band, highly underrated. - mangohobo
This band needs to be in at least the top 40, even David Howie said T.V. on the Radio and Arcade Fire are the best bands in the last decade 😀
I find it ridiculous that they aren't currently on this list. Mark Oliver Everett is brilliant and writes excellent tunes such as, " Novacaine for the Soul" and "Fresh Feeling." Wow, I can't bring myself to believe they aren't on here at all.
Low key canadian band. Listen to Kurt Vonnegut and Barnacle Goose for a meaningful and deep trip.
