Beloved indie albums that have been lost to time
1The Age of Rockets
The Drive Home

Please check this! Classic emo/indie album w/ electro elements. Very overlooked on sput, it needs way more love. This was one of my fav albums for years, it's super nostalgic.
2The Ditty Bops
The Ditty Bops

Cute girl folk duo with sing songy tunes.
3The Shaky Hands
The Shaky Hands

This was one of my fav indie albums as a teen. Think Conor Oberst-ish vocals without the super emo lyrics. Super bright clean guitars, sounds summery.
4The Rosebuds
Birds Make Good Neighbors

This is cute dream pop with catchy songs and pleasant vocals. There's a spacey dreamy indie vibe that hooked me pretty good for a long time, very overlooked here for some reason.
Dada Bandits

Think an alternate version of Animal Collective. This band was very unique and refreshing to me at the time, the music sounds like the album cover would suggest. Very overlooked and worth a listen.
6Joe Purdy
Julie Blue

Romantic and sentimental acoustic indie/folk with very memorable tunes and vocals. Joe Purdy seemed pretty popular at the time but not so much on sput.
7French Kicks
Two Thousand

Classic straight forward indie with catchy memorable songs.
8Born Ruffians
Born Ruffians

Born Ruffians made it big with their next album, but this was their best imo. This was very original at the time due to the vocals. Kooky indie with whacked out vox.
9The Spinto Band
Nice And Nicely Done

The Spinto Band was a seminal indie band at the time, and Oh Mandy was one of my fav tracks during high school.
10The Spinto Band

This one is a little more polished.
11Tap Tap

Still no more ratings? I used to love this. Think Wolf Parade but even more underground.
12The Robot Ate Me
On Vacation

This artist has no ratings on sput. This is a great weird little album. the vocals are a bit silly but this is really unique, a bit cutesy and weird. Kinda reminds me of M. Ward bu weirder and higher vocals and more samples. It's a little 'In the Aeroplane Over the Sea'-ish with it's theme.
13The Robot Ate Me
Good World

Another great The Robot Ate Me album. This one has a ton of woodwinds and a very minimalist analogue feel. The vocals on this are even higher and sillier this time around. It's a one of a kind sound and a special little oddity.
14Parenthetical Girls
Safe As Houses

Indie alt rock with high pitched vocals and memorable songs.
So Gone

indie alt rock band with decent little guitar riffs.
The Evening Descends
17Minus Story
No Rest for Ghosts

I used to LOVE this band in high school. They're emo/indie with pretty emo vocals but a bit of a rough garage rock band feel as well. The songs on this are classics to me, several of them should have been much more popular.
18Minus Story
The Captain Is Dead, Let The Drum Corpse Dance
19Minus Story
Moebius Syndrome

This one has a more wall-of-sound garage feel to it.
20Half-Handed Cloud
Halos & Lassos

Dang, this has almost no ratings. Think Sufjan Steven with high vocals, a tiny bit of freak folk, and weird lyrics. This was one of my favorites for years, listened to this so many times.
21El Guincho

Psych spanish folky music with reverb.
Heron King Blues

Very solid dark acoustic indie folk with the classic track '2 Sisters Drunk On Each Other '.
23The Little Ones
Sing Song

Cutesy indie pop/rock with infectious songs that will stick in your head, a lot of fun.
24Handsome Furs
Plague Park

Wolf Parade side project.
25Great Lake Swimmers
Great Lake Swimmers

Acoustic indie folk.
26Frog Eyes
The Golden River

This was my fav Frog Eyes album. Similar to Wolf Parade vocally. This band had a lot of great stuff, this one stood out the most to me though.
27Swan Lake
Beast Moans

Canadian supergroup w/ Wolf Parade and Frog Eyes members.
Meek Warrior

Freak folk.
29Beep Beep
Business Casual

Weird spastic alt rock/indie.
30The Elected
Me First

Solid indie/indie rock.
C'mon Miracle

Female indie pop
32Page France
Hello, Dear Wind

This one is a bit more popular, but still needs more votes. Simple acoustic indie.
33Oh No! Oh My!
Oh No! Oh My!

Wow even I forgot about this until now. Good indie rock.
34The Skygreen Leopards
Life And Love In Sparrow's Meadow

Unknown freak folk.
35The Besnard Lakes
The Besnard Lakes Are the Dark Horse

Pretty well known, but I thought this was waayy more well known than it seems to be on here. Slow burn dark psych indie rock.
36I Spell it Nature
I Spell it Nature

Quaint and straight forward post-rock first demo with some ambitious songs considering it was the band's only project.
37Kind of Like Spitting
Old Moon in the Arms of the New

Great singer songwriter w/ lots of acoustic.
38Kind of Like Spitting
One Hundred Dollar Room

This one is more electric w/ less acoustic. Fantastic emo/indie rock album.
39Say Hi
Impeccable Blahs

Somewhat well known I think, his albums do have some votes. Classic goth bubblegum electro indie pop/rock album by a prolific indie pop artist with a decent sized discography of good albums. They all have a uniform album art aesthetic that looks great. This one has a vampire theme.
40Say Hi
Numbers & Mumbles

Less goth than Blahs, it's more about thinking about saying hi to your mom.
41Dirty on Purpose
Hallelujah Sirens

Classic dream pop/indie album that has some shoegazey and indie rock moments. I was surprised to see that this doesn't have any other votes. This needs some love.

Indie noise rock.
43Ray Wonder
Good Music

I was super into this for a little bit years ago. Indie pop.
44Fruit Sand
Trashy UFO Dreambag

Bizarre harsh noise/indie album.
Giant's Despair

Emo/Post-hardcore/indie rock worth checking
46Josephine Foster
Hazel Eyes, I Will Lead You

Female folk. I Expected this to have more votes.
47Kaki King
Everybody Loves You

This is still getting some votes, but I feel like more of sput would like this. Female acoustic.
48Tiny Vipers
Life on Earth

Sput I promise you would like this, I figured it would have way more votes. Ambient folk.
49The Hospitals
Hairdryer Peace

Weird distorted lo-fi noise rock.
50Hello Saferide
Introducing...Hello Saferide

Female folk.
51Jens Lekman
Oh You're So Silent Jens

Sandwich I think you should hear this if you haven't :)
52Tilly and the Wall
Wild Like Children

Indie from Omaha, Nebraska associated with Conor Oberst.
53Pia Fraus
After Summer

Lovely shoegaze.
54Shout Out Louds
Howl Howl Gaff Gaff

Swedish indie pop.
55Sophie Madeleine
Love Life Ukulele

Female singer-songwriter ukulele indie pop. Usually I hate the ukulele but this is an adorable album.
56Patrick Wolf
The Magic Position

This one actually has a lot of votes but I haven't seen it around in many years. It's bombastic and creative indie pop, electronic, and orchestral. Pretty fun album.
57Sibylle Baier
Colour Green

This is another one with a decent amount of votes, but I'll keep shouting it out because it's a damn CLASSIC and still has no review. Similar to Vashti Bunyan but more lo-fi. Very intimate private songs about life and love.
Aw Come Aw Wry

Freakin classic americana indie right here. Needs more votes guys. Their next album was more popular but this is their best. I used to listen to this a lot. It's got a great sombre vibe and cool vocals.
59Emiliana Torrini
Fisherman's Woman

Pretty female singer-songriter indie.
60Chad VanGaalen

Lo-fi indie rock.
61Elf Power
A Dream in Sound

62Tapes 'n Tapes
The Loon

Indie rock.
63Throw Me The Statue

Indie pop. Everyone forgot this.
64Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin
