Alt Recs for MysteriousNewUser

MysteriousNewUser has asked for alt rock recs. Feel free to leave rhim more below.
1Creeper Lagoon
Take Back The Universe And Give Me Yesterday

90's indie/alt rock that just missed the boat.
Ruby Red

Quintessential 90's Indie rock out of Boston. A lot of the Boston alt rockers
site these guys as being one of their favorites. The lyrics are a little
sophomoric but it is a prime example of true 90's indie scene. If you prefer
your music a little rougher around the edges go for this or their earlier
album Encendedor. If you prefer a more polished production go for Against
the Stars. It actually saw a little air time on MTV.
Hot Boxing

90's pop-punk/riot girrrl Most people seem to like their self titled album
more but the rawness of the production and the harsh guitar production
makes this their best for me.
Total Life Forever

Alt rock from 2010, this has a number of really great tracks. Some prefer the
previous album Antidotes but I think TLF is damn near a perfect alt rock
album. Their music has a maturity I find lacking in some of their
5Silversun Pickups
Neck of the Woods

Chances are you know these guys however unless you are an alt rock fan
in general you probably didn't pick up their newest album. It is just a skosh
behind their earlier and subjectivly better albums.
6The Smashing Pumpkins

Again, almost as good as the earlier stuff but definitely worth a spin.
We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors...

Really digging this right now. Very classic rock meets modern alt. Singer
slips into Hold Steadyesq broken vocals from time to time.
8The Horrible Crowes

Lead singer of the Gasslight anthem's side project. Very good album that
seems like it slid under the radar for anyone not on this site.
9The War on Drugs
Slave Ambient

Very Tom Petty, just read Bighans review.
10Black Mountain
Wilderness Heart

Just a great rock album.
