Seeing as though you're a Zep fan, I guess you're an expert on effing horrible pretentious crap.

Well I'll take my previous comment back (after listening to their songs again), just their singer is bad. Well, actually, I've heard about ten songs of theirs, and they all have the same/similar song and lyric structures.

preĚtenĚtious
adj.

1. Claiming or demanding a position of distinction or merit, especially when unjustified.
2. Making or marked by an extravagant outward show; ostentatious.

Which of these apply to Zep? I'm curious.

Here are some of my favorite albums of 2005:

Art Brut - Bang Bang Rock and Roll - funny, catchy pop rock

Sleater-Kinney - The Woods - Grrl Rock

Sleater-Kinney is pretty cool, although they could improve by changing up their tone a bit. It's like listening to Pennywise.

Your comment about Art Brut makes clear that the point has been totally lost on you.

A lot of it is similar to very familiar to new wavish stuff from my childhood, so if you're not my age or never really listened to Squeeze or the Tom Tom Club, I can understand why.

I think everyone sort of has their own definitions of indie stuff. growing up in nc, the bands I think of are all the merge stuff like archers of loaf, polvo, superchunk, portastatic etc.
