I remember the first time I heard the term, in middle school, I thought it had something to do with "India" or "Indigeneous

Wow, that's some wicked middle school vocab. Now if you thought it was the soundtrack from Raiders of the Lost Ark I would guess you were from the US, now I'm guessing some alien place like Mars or France.

I love the way your quote of my quote left off the last ". Very meta. You're like a turtlely indie thinker.

BTW I'm from DC. So there's that.

Your post seems to indicate you think Ben Gibbard is a part of iron and wine. he is not. that is sam beam's work, and it is amazing - especially his last two releases (our endless numbered days and woman king)

Art Brut - Bang Bang Rock and Roll - funny, catchy pop rock
Broken Social Scene - self-titled - catchy as all hell.

Why? - Elephant Eylash - pretty good indie rock from a rapper
Lou Barlow - EMOH - acoustic, folky pop stuff from the driving force of Sebadoh
Fiery Furnaces - EP - spastic pop
Spoon - Gimme Fiction - good pop/rock from the best rock band on the planet

Architecture in Helsinki - In Case We Die - cutesy, spastic pop that's really good
LCD Soundsystem - self-titled - great dance music

oh, you're witty no doubt. it's just kinda annoying. if you weren't talking about me it'd be kinda funny I guess.

I display much more of the attitude I'm (jokingly) accused of when it comes to sports than music though.
