So I've been listening to alot of Dredg and Mew lately and was wondering if there are any more good bands like them.

Also stuff like Fleet Foxes is pretty good. Mostly anything in that type of genre.

Thanks!

So like... indie folk, or?

Try andrew bird, bon iver, the dodos. Those are all in the same vein as Fleet Foxes so i'd check those out.

Isn't mew that really bad bland band?

I really like Mew. According to interviews with the band, their biggest influence was Dinosaur Jr. You should check them out if you haven't already.

that post reminded me of an experimental topic i wanted to make where all of gw listens to chinese democracy and each individual member tries to find ten legitimately good things about the album, not just "it came out" or whatever but I never did it because I never wanted to finish listening to the album.

but yeah this is yet another topic that is kind of oddly going all over the place. you guys have been making weird music recommendations again. I'm not sure how a Mew fan would like Dino Jr and why are we just THROWING INDIE BANDS out there?

what's weird is despite my dislike of the first two bands, I know this is a big genre for some people AND gw was huge into these bands and you can get real recommendations that LAST.FM or whatever won't pick up! so I'm kind of disappointed that it's one rec thread you guys in particular should be able to help him with and we're getting last.fm and focusing on some indie shit when DS refers to PURE REASON REVOLUTION like once a month and I know for a fact a lot of you are big nerds for this shit still.

fyi while checking for you

-pure reason revolution. ds et al used to love this fucking band when they were into Dredg stuff.
-I'm honestly just going to list DS bands now: Oceansize, Porcupine Tree, 3, Circa Survive was one wasn't it, anything by Steve Wilson.

if that doesn't keep you occupied for the first bit nothing will.

forget your fleet foxes rec though you didn't even try for that shit though. exert some effort man, just a little.

RECOMMEND ME A BAND *doesn't google anything*

this is both a bad and good topic in that by asking for two bands GW used to be obsessed with you are actually bound to get shit you never would have heard of but then you also just threw in "oh also here's like the most popular band of last year what's like them" and clearly didn't even try.

guys I like The Pharcyde and Blackstar, who's like this. also, I like Katy Perry anyone like that? please help.

man THAT GENRE though is huge. it is honestly like saying WHATS LIKE KATY PERRY? fleet foxes were the biggest indie band last year and as such they have so many imitators that I can't help but feel not disgenuity but I guess LAZINESS if someone can't honestly find shit that sounds like them with minimum effort.

this is admittedly a lot because I don't like Fleet Foxes AT ALL and think they sound generic as fuck.

I don't care what kind of music you like. Wake up early, roll like 6 joints, and listen to the entire The Fall discography. That should take you all day

both boring indie bands pitchfork people love..

admittedly, I was thinking that one ff song that goes "the door slammed loud and rose up a cloud of dust on us" followed by unrelated gibberish was the one yeasayer song everyone liked.
