Yeah, I've mentioned this band many times before, but it deserves its own thread. Say Hi To Your Mom. It's a very relaxed, calm sounding Indie music and, just as a bonus, I've talked to the creator and singer (Eric Elbogen) and he's really cool. I just rediscovered the song Twenty-second Century and it is definitly one f their best songs. Discuss.

Yeah, I've noticed that alot of people on here are into Screamo and stuff like that, along with rap.

I hate that shit. There's some rap that is ok (eg. NaS-illmatic), but all screamo/extremo/whatevermo sucks. I used to listen to alot of indie. Right now I'm mainly into 80s hardcore/ some garage bands/ a few pop punk bands (eg. off with their heads/ clorox girls) But yeah, I have no idea how all the rap and screamo shit got so well liked by skaters...

Haha, seriously, how much talent does it take to scream into a microphone.

Interpol or Joy Division. Similar bands, very ambient maybe not the typical indie style idk, also of course theres the Smiths aswell.

Haha, they're not from Seattle. They're from Brooklyn, but Eric wanted to spread the name cross country (Plus they're original guitarist and drummer bailed.) It was kind of to get a fresh start, too.





Choizy, try Sebadoh, The New Lows, Moving Units(some songs are oddly techno, though) and The Decemberists.
