    The Microphones are my absolute favourite, but I mostly like bands on independent labels (e.g. Neutral Milk Hotel, Sufjan, Iron and Wine, At the Drive-In etc.).

    I would have gone for Joanna Newsom, but she isn't really a band.

    Umm...approximately 65% of those bands are rather well known and somewhat mainstream/post-mainstream. (Yes, I read that you said that many are not indie, but many of those don't even qualify.)

    I'm not totally sure whether they're indie or not, but Antony and the Johnsons.

    I don't really think of any band as my favourite, but The Arcade Fire come pretty close.

    Yay at the mentions of Of Montreal (of of XD) they are maybe my favourite band full stop. I hate labels though, look at people disputing the "indie" tag already XD

    But of the other bands mentioned I also love animal collective, arcade fire, the shins (probably my second favourite band), and I dont know what else i like is "indie" so I'll leave it at that

    I'd say Sufjan Stevens, if you consider him indie, because he is a god among men.

    also, is this just a thread for indie kids to one-up eachother by flaunting bands no one has ever heard of?

    if it is, I'm in. I love "man man" <3.
