Not a huge fan of older stuff, especially with such limited space, but Closer by JD rules.

So you guys really think Neutral Milk Hotel are going to get someone into indie rock, huh?

If someone can't listen to and like King of Carrot Flowers pt 1, Ghost, Holland, 1945, etc, I don't know how they'll like most of the other stuff mentioned here.

Are people into indie really called hipsters? I know euro uses that term a lot but is it common?

The Hipster Handbook will answer all your questions.

the book is actually pretty funny. I condescendinly refer to people as hipsters usually based upon a few things:
1) their stupid dress code to try to look different while all looking the same, especially that hair cut
2) the sad, uninterested/depressed look on their face at all time indicating that they obviously have something better to do and their life really is THAT bad
3) when they want to keep indie music indie- keeping favorite bands secret, etc

Of the music I tend to listen to a lot, Carrot Pt 1 and Holland are two of the few that my friends actually like.

I'm not a "hipster", but from someone who can see from your friend's side of things, the albums that first got me to give indie music a chance were:

The Go Team - Thunder, Lightning, Strike
Bloc Party - Silent Alarm
The Shins - Oh, Inverted World

and while I happened upon this album later on, I also would throw in The New Pornographers - Twin Cinema

This one is an automatic if he didnt say he liked songwriter stuff more than weird sounds.

Even then, its SOOO good that it deserves consideration imo.

Being the poster in question I feel the need to add something.
I allready have.
Iron and Wine - Our Endless Numbered Days
The Shins - Chutes To Narrow
Postal Service - Give Up
Rilo Kiley - More Adventurous
Death Cab For Cutie - We Have The Facts
Bright Eyes - Digital Ash..., and I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning

And I am Familiar with and like
Radiohead, Pixxies, and Elliot Smith (though I don't have any of them)

As CMI said I'm more a fan of lyrics though I'd like a mix of different things so expirmental sounds is not out of the question. I want OOT to give me a good sample, so by no means should you leave something off the list just cause it's not entirely lyrical. I'm offten suprised by what I like. I am not looking to become a full on "hipster" or anything just looking to expand my musical horizons.

When CMI mentioned the idea of this thread to me, I thought it would have great expansion potential to list, new bands, new websites or labels, so there would be something to link for someone like me an indie noob (hence the tittle Indie Starter Kit).
