Hmmm. Built To Spill, Neutral Milk Hotel, Animal Collective, Buckethead, Lightning Dust, Health, Levy, Regina Spektor, Bjork, Laura Veirs, Bat For Lashes, Emily Haines, Emily Haines and the Soft Skeleton, Crystal Castles, Metronomy, Laura Marling.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Not all of those artists are indie, but they're still interesting.

AHH! Someone with similar musical tastes finally!

I can send you some MP3's if you would like. I love sharing my music.

You NEED to know A Fine Frenzy. She's spectacular. (http://www.amazon.com/A-Fine-Frenzy/e/B0017PCN34/r... her newest album Bomb in a Birdcage is spectacular. Bests are Stood Up and Electric Twist and The Beacon. Her most famous song is Almost Lover, but I don't really like it.

Ingrid Michaelson. (http://www.amazon.com/Ingrid-Michaelson/e/B0017P6W... Girls and Boys is a very good album. The Way I Am, Die Alone and The Hat are the good ones.

Goldfrapp. They've got some electronic feel, but it's addicting. (http://www.amazon.com/Goldfrapp/e/B000APNZXY/ref=s... I recommend Crystalline Green (it was on House M.D.), Utopia, Oh La La.

Lykke Li: waaaayy cooler indie version of Lady Gaga. And she's Swedish. (http://www.amazon.com/Lykke-Li/e/B001LH3UDK/ref=sr... I recommend Get Some, Dance Dance Dance, possibility, little bit, I'm good, I'm gone.

Your other question says you like Foxy Shazam. I love the band The Venetia Fair, and everyone says they're similar to Foxy Shazam. They're a really small band, though. I went to one of their shows once and they barely had three rows of people lmao. But they're really good.

There's also a new band, Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows (D.R.U.G.S). Idk if they're your type of music, but they're really good. Their album came out 5 days ago, actually.

You might like Concrete Eyes. The Songs are very different from one another. They have free music downloads.
