    Howe Gelb has a similar sound to Smog mentioned by the OP. Excellent album... Sno Angel Like You.

    If you like the beta band, try the Aliens as there's a couple of Beta Banders in there. And I agree about king creosote.
    Also, instrumental music that is good includes
    Mogwai
    Godspeed you black emperor
    Rickard Javerling (tbh I have no idea if I'm anywhere near the kind of music you are interested in or just flailing wildly now. In any case 'the three sisters' is quiet and lovely)

    maybe you would like sufjan stevens or beirut.

    I'd just like to say that Roddy Woombles album 'My Secret Is My Silence' was one of my favourite things last year. In fact 'Every Line Of A Long Moment' was probably my song of '06.

    Sea Change and Mutations by Beck are excellent. The former being depressing acoustic, the latter being more blues/folky.

    Apart from that, the only thing I can think of is Bright Eyes. Only heard a couple of songs but they seem alright.

    The Climbers have got a session on Marc Riley's show tonight. Not sure what time it is - probably around 7pm. Their album The Good Ship is darn good.

    I totally love this genre.

    I Am Kloot are my new favourites.

    Could not disagree more, Milk Eyed Mender is way more assessable. If I'd listened to Ys first, I'd have never got into her

    Bombay Bicycle Club's new album, "Flaws", is a real belter.

    Midlake get better with every album.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Each to their own,but I thunk the opposite:)

    Seeing as we've got Indie Folk in the title,I just have to mention HalfMan Half Biscuit.
    Back in the DHSS ,a post punk masterpiece.The recent albums have really cranked up the satire.The guy is a genius.And he's got Joy Division Oven gloves!

    Fair enough. Some like it rougher than others. Courage of Others is a cross between CSNY and Camel. Bliss.

    I saw them at Glastonbury and they were brilliant, and although they played a lot of the new album, it instantly seemed right and true to me already. Familiar. They found a sound in the second album. This was more of the same, but still good.

    Didn't actually hear it in full until I was driving alone to the Secret Garden Party last summer, and I listened to it twice on the way. By the time I reached the festival gates I had no need of drugs, I was in harmonious heaven. Flute-tastic too /stands on one leg and grins insanely like a certain Mr Anderson.

    But yeah, each to their own :D The first album harnessed something really special, experimental. They have just settled into a groove now, their corners have come off. Happens to most bands, eventually.

    They really do feel like they took so much acid in the 60s that they punched a hole in time and returned to earth 40 years later. I love Midlake.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Yeah, well you don't know what Reuters is, so I don't really put much stock in your opinion ;)

    I know Lou loves them, but I'm going to mention The Microphones and Mount Eerie anyway. Basically the perfect bands for the thread title.

    Two bands from Phil Elverum. Mount Eerie is the band after Phil decided he had done all he could under the Microphones name.

    Not ashamed to say I'm a total fanboy.

    The Microphones' The Glow Part 2 would be the place to start, IMO.

    Also, I'd like to mention Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and The Mountain Goats. Both are terrific.
  • Deleted user 30 October 2010 16:19:27
    Er, that was a joke about the time blize said he didn't know who Reuters were.

    Nice try though.
