Default I had no idea there was such an indie following here...

I actually just started getting into it, after many years of being a prick about it and refusing to listen. Specifically, I have been hearing great stuff about elliot smith for at least two years, and never listened to anything by him, until about a month ago when I was in this hot girls room at my school, and I actually liked it, so she direct connected all the music he made to me, and I listened to it pretty much nonstop until a few days ago when I forced myself to download more music, such as picaresque by the decemberists. And I am now delving into modest mouse, I downloaded their discography. Any suggestions on bands to listen to? (I've listened to the new pornographers, their ok, I don't really care for Xiu Xiu, and I dislike Bright Eyes)

I'll just recommend Built to Spill. My favorite band ever. Listen to "I Wouldn't Hurt a Fly", "Car", and "Carry the Zero".

What are the most popular indie bands that people would recognize by name if there are any?

It's hard to define indie anymore. Modest Mouse is the easy one, though. Now I feel more like it's about some kind of "indie cred" and it's gotten pretty stupid. The Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs have indie cred. Hell, I think Coldplay used to have indie cred before Rush of Blood.

If you want to name some older indie bands, I'd say Sonic Youth and Pavement are "indie", Pavement moreso. Sonic Youth is like..."no-core" whatever that means.

Some previously unmentioned biggies: Arcade Fire, Wolf Parade, Spoon, The Shins...

And another one that gets a special shout out because they are from my hometown: Calexico.

The Shins are an indie band who've gotten fairly mainstream since Garden State came out.
