So, we're equating indie rock with the likes of Grizzly Bear, The Shins, the National and the accompanying watered down versions of those bands, right? I feel like that's what most people would think of when hearing that term these days. If so, thread is probably on point.

YLT, Pavement, and Sonic Youth are all pillars of indie rock and decidedly good (imo!). Is Unwound indie rock? They're good too.
