Emo and Indie should not even be in the same thread. I refuse to take responsibility for the steaming pile of dog **** that is "emo".
Hi, how are you?

Broken Social Scene, At The Drive-in, Brand New, Pavement, Sufjan Stevens, Radiohead, The New Pornographers, The Flaming Lips, The Postal Service and Pixies are the best alternative bands, but indie and emo are not synonymous terms, neither are they mutually exclusive though, early emocore can be related to indie in it's dirtier less refined style and small base of fans and record labels.

Someone actually told me that indie and emo are really similar... Take My American Heartfor example. I'm not sure if I believe this myself, but he said that indie was pretty much taking off where emo left off. Since most emo now is quite... dead.

And seeing as both genres in thier modern form have been around since the late 80s that statement is a load.

Still, sound wise indie tends to sound like emo back before it was all high pitched and screaming.

Well bands like The Get Up Kids and Sunny Day Real Estate probably would be called indie now.

Yeah, emo did go through it's stage where it was "indie" (but seriously, let's not get into the whole debate where indie is just independant music and not actually related to a certain sound) around the time of Cap'n Jazz and then to bands like, as mentioned, Sunny Day Real Estate and such.

As far as "emo-indie" goes though Cap'n Jazz definately win.
