Strokes
Milburn
Interpol
Cribs
Foals
Modest Mouse
Arcade Fire

and this is where P2P comes into a world of it's own, you can sample any band and then decide whether you want to buy their album or go to their gig.

i sure did ;-) its easy when you know how lol x

If you give Mars Volta a listen, try and listen to some At The Drive In First, as Mars Volta are half of that band, the other half is Sparta, who are also well worth a listen.

For slightly more indie stuff, try:

The Beep Seals
Litt'lans
Envy and Other Sins
Angry Vs The Bear

also check out:

Frank Turner
Mew
Sigur Ros
Minus the Bear

oh, and if you havent already - Flight of the Conchords.

The la's
