Scott Pilgrim Vs. Your Stereo

An interesting request occurred when I publicly expressed my deep disappointment in the "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World", I actually received a request to recommend some new albums to people who might have liked some of the indie rock in the movie. Once I started the list, the bands just kept coming and though I don't even like some of these bands, or haven't listened to them in close to a decade, there are bound to be a few gems in here for the Knives of the less-CG-world. In fact, there were so many bands you can expect four, yes, FOUR, posts of ten bands each for your amusement. In no particular order, with the {Band Name - "Album Title" (Comments).} format.
  • Spoon - "Transference" (Stripped down, but ocmplicated, rock).
  • Monotonix - "Where Were You When It Happened?" (Craaaazzzy).
  • The Apes - "The Fugue in the Fog" (Heavy indie rock with an organ).
  • Archie Bronson Outfit - "Derdang Derdang" (Jangly, dancey Lodon-sound rock).
  • SSM - "SSM" (Dirty electro-indie from the Midwest).
  • Pavement - "Brighten The Corners" (A classic album from the slacker-rock kings).
  • Darker My Love - "2" (New from Los Angeles).
  • Tapes 'n Tapes - "Walk If Off "(Great upbeat rock from this Minneapolis unit).
  • The Duke Spirit - "Neptune" (A darker, slower album with a female vocalist).
  • The Subways - "Young for Eternity" (Dancable british punk-inflected rock).
That's it for this installment! Let me know if you have any bands you recommend to burgeoning fans of indie and underground rock?
