A to Z of awesome alt\indie music

oh, you don't know these bands? learn em, love em
  1. Awolnation
    The crazed mind of Aaron Bruno brings this techno rock rap hybrid to life.
  2. Børns
    Sweet dream pop with falsetto goodness.
  3. CHVRCHES
    Lauren Mayberry makes intense emotional electro rock.
  4. Dredg
    They throw themes into every album and go from Pink Floyd jazz rock to dark pop. And their drummer plays keys and drums at the same time.
  5. Embrace
    British band that is all heart.
  6. First Aid Kit
    Folk duo full of raw understated power.
  7. Geographer
    I've been obsessed with this electronic pop band lately.
  8. Hooray for Earth
    Another electronic pop band with checking out.
  9. Idlewild
    Not the Outkast album... Used to be a punk band and have become more arena in the best way.
  10. Jump Little Children
    An old band. Made use of strings on the reg to have a truly alternative sound.
  11. Kaiser Chiefs
    My favorite band, the new front runners of the Britpop sound.
  12. Luyas
    This woman has an amazing voice. Truly fantastic.
  13. Metric
    They go from punk to synthetic and everything in between. Feminist and intense, Emily Haines is the best.
  14. Nothing but Thieves
    Amazing guitar driven rock with a stronger not afraid of the high notes.
  15. Operator Please
    Came together to beat the popular kids in a battle of the bands. They deserved to win. Punky but breezy.
  16. People in Planes
    Completely different sound. Started as a jazz band and definitely took that improvisational spirit with them to indie.
  17. Qualia
    Not much to say, just fun sounds.
  18. Rubblebucket
    Fun, energetic music with some ska influence.
  19. Stars
    Boy girl duo, dreamy but not without edge.
  20. Temper Trap
    Known for their Sweet Disposition, this band is so so much more.
  21. Uh Huh Her
    Taken from a PJ Harvey song, keyboard laden awesome lady rock.
  22. Voxtrot
    I don't really know how to explain them. They're good. Look them up.
  23. We Have Band
    Three people, two married and one other guy, all trade vocals in this electronic rock band. Awesomeness ensues.
  24. X Ambassadors
    They're living like they're renegades.
  25. Yelawolf
    Folk rap. That's a thing.
  26. Zutons
