i'm a huge rock'n'roll fan, recently ventured into indie....?

i like the chill vibe, love makepeace brothers, joshua radin, eric hutchingson, ingrid michaelson, the weepies etc.

last time i asked about some inide bands, i got a lot of achey music! i like it as well, but would love some more upbeat yet chill music similar to the bands mentioned. (though im pretty open minded if you know of anything great! except techno - can't stand it)



similar sound to jack johnson, jason mraz and john mayer...they are just so overplayed. don't get me wrong i love them, but id like to find some other music thats really easy to listen to. try listening to vegetable car by joshua radin to understand :) thats the mood i'm feeling right now!

    Try some Mogwai - its pretty chilled.

    'Indie' bands like Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand, The Killers are also good, but not Indie in a true sense.
