Well I have been listening to indie for a bit and i'm really liking it.
Its also fun as hell to play, and not very hard.

I've been listening mostly to:

The Strokes
The Bravery

As you can see thats not very much. Please recommend me some more songs and bands please.
Andrew Bird
The Shins
Sufjan Stevens
Deathcab for Cutie
Eliott Smith
The New Pornographers
Bright Eyes
The Arcade Fire
The Apples in Stereo
The Dandy Warhols
Broken Social Scene


Also you could get a last.fm account (type that into your browser). You play some music you like and it recommends similar artists.

The Strokes

If you want bands that sound like similar to those, check out Joy Division, the Chameleons UK, Mission of Burma and Television. Also, have you checked out the Alt & Indie essentials? You might find that quite useful.

Anyway, these are just some Indie bands that I think you'd enjoy

Built To Spill
The Libertines
Yo La Tengo
Guided By Voices
Archers of Loaf
