I remember the Hummingbirds! I loved their "Love Buzz" cd. Gonna have to listen to that again soon.
I love tribal celtic music, though i don't have anything on cd. *mental note to get some*
Two bands i like from Indy- which is just 50 miles from my town of Bloomington- are the Shivers and Destination:Earth. The Shivers is like '60s Brit pop with a modern alternative feel. Destionation:Earth is surf instrumental and one of the best surf instro bands in the world imo (they're similiar to Man Or Astroman in style).

i gotta promote a local record label, Secretly Canadian. Some good artists on board, i know some of the folks at the label as they graduated from the record store scene to the record label scene.
Here's a link & there's some mp3's there to enjoy-
Wow! There's a great new indie rock band from Indy, Margot And The Nuclear So & So's. Their new album actually was released last year but is now reissued & remixed for a proper, larger reissue this month. The Dust Of Retreat is the greatest debut cd from an indie rock band that i've heard in many, many years. And they's from Indhickiana! The lead singer isn't Margot, there is no Margot but this is great music. Here's some free downloads and samples and whatnot. Check their site for a video.
Downloaded the MP3 and am listening to it at the moment.
Nice. Thanks for the link.
37 band members?!

Glad ya liked it, Argy.
37 band members? i thought it said 8 members. i knew the Polyphonic Spree had a large group count but 37 would be downright amazing! Well, Fela Kuti may have topped that in his band in the 80s, course he had 3 or 4 times as many wives as i do- in real life that was.

I might have heard the MP3 wrong. Maybe they said 7 instead of 37.
They were going on about how full the studio was due to the number of band members.

Picked up a great cd recently from a local band, Gentleman Caller. The band has connections with Margot & the Nuclear So & So's that i mentioned elsewhere in this thread. The beat may be slower than Margot's but i loves their songs and they're a hometown band, not from Indy.
And hometown rock/reggae boys Zox are currently on the Warped Tour so we'll see what happens there.This message has been edited. Last edited by: lila997,

Hey cuz lila, glad to hear Margot & the N S&S's are gettin' heard in your neck of the woods and you like 'em.
The Click 5 cd has been on my want list for awhile. i really like them. i've heard Lori McKenna from a comp or two somewhere (she's cool) and i need to hunt down an Edie Carey album. Zox is great, too, i would see them on the Warped Tour in Indy but i don't think headliner Joan Jett is going to be there that day. Why, Joan, are you missing Indy!?!?
Great cd from my hometown- Murder By Death's In Bocca al Lupo. Think Johnny Cash singing & writing stark indie-rock songs in '06.
The last 8 songs on the new cd are amazing. Not sure what their last albums were like, AMG didn't like their previous one but the new one is HOT! Vocalist has that Johnny Cash sound and the lyrics are Cash gone punk. Yay Indhickiana for having 3 amazing albums so far this year.

Another cool Indhickiana band with a great album comin' out soon (i knows cuz i have an advance copy) is Sam Lowry. A quieter version of Murder By Death, and a couple of the folks from MBD are on the new cd.
