Indie is short for Independent. Nothing more nothing less. In the sense in which I am typing I am referring to music, for the sole reason of mis-interpretation. First things first. You cannot like "indie" music. I mean... I guess you can. But it is unreasonable to say. Thats like saying you only like music distributed by Tooth and Nail records for example... Indie is not a genre; no matter what the media wants you to believe... Now. What most people will consider "indie" music is alternative rock. Or mellow acoustic. Or dance. But in reality "indie" can be hardcore death metal, reggae, rap ect... Also. You can't be "indie".
Okay. I guess I will name some bands that someone might consider "indie" even though I'm completely contradicting myself...

Milosh, The Snake The Cross The Crown, The Red Paintings, Why?, Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Happy Mondays, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Q and not U, Token, Silp and Tra, Feel from, Owen, Pedro the Lion, MGMT, cLOUDDEAD, David Bazan, The Replacements.
