Actual Forgotten Indie Bands

Since I got some flak for my last list here's a list of some cool indie bands that are actually pretty out there/unheard of. At least on sput.
1Oxford Collapse
Remember the Night Parties


Really only know this album but 'Please Visit Your National Parks' is a jam and a half

2Born Ruffians
Red, Yellow & Blue


Used to get these guys and Local Natives mixed up because 'Hummingbird' is a song by these guys and also an album by Local Natives. Song is pretty sweet though

3LVL UP
Hoodwink'd


These guys just got signed to Sub Pop which is a pretty big deal but no one seems to pay any attention to em on here. They rip off the riff from Young Folks by Peter Bjorn and John which is pretty sweet so listen here

4White Denim
Corsicana Lemonade


Yeah they have a review but only 31 votes. I almost like this album better than The Black Keys but they are very similar.

5Electric Owls
Ain't Too Bright


Only know a couple songs by these guys but they have a cool electronic/moody kinda sound to em. 'Magic Show' is really cool I would rec

6The Epilogues
Cinematics


They sound identical to Silversun Pickups with a bit of Manchester Orchestra thrown in. Amazing album would highly, highly rec.

7Lovedrug
Wild Blood


Kinda cool sounding band. They are like a mix of Placebo and Silversun Pickups.

8Telekinesis
Telekinesis!


This is getting reallllll indie

9Tapes N Tapes
Outside


Not sure why this album has a 2.8 average it's kinda stereotypical indie but there's a couple jams on here that I think are kinda original sounding. Check it out for yourself I guess

10Rocky Votolato
Suicide Medicine


This sounds like your average singer/songwriter stuff but man are the lyrics depressing.

11White Rabbits
It's Frightening


Only know a couple songs by these guys but they sound like a band I need to check out more of.

12The Features
Wilderness


This is a band that should've blown up but didn't. Really poppy sounding but still unique. Not sure how I feel about them but if you're into indie-pop this is for you.

13Crystal Antlers
Tentacles


The album art for this should make you want to check it out alone. Psych/indie rock.
