Hoho, my time to shine. I'm sure some of you would have heard a bit of this, but I'm just gonna post my favourite shite. Lettuce begin.

The indie stuff:

Bon Iver - For emma, forever ago. Get this album.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhxQWiCmxfg

Dr. Dog - Heart it races. Cover of the fantastic Architecture in Helsinki song.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtZJk7ujsEw

Arcade Fire - Neighborhood #4 Kettles. Get this album.

Now for some misc stuff, just general chill out.

Air - Lost in Kyoto. Features in the greatest soundtrack ever made.

The Whitest Boy Alive - All Ears. Not much to say really, just so relaxing.

I could go on for days.

Bon Iver is(are) my favouite music artist(s).

Have you got Sean Carey's album?

(If you don't know; he's the drummer/backup vocalist from Bon Iver)

Arcade Fire are also quality.

Will check the others later.

Haven't got that album, and uni network doesn't allow torrents, so I'll have to wait a week before getting it from home. If it's anything like Bon Iver, I'm sure I'll love it, amazing group.

I'm assuming you've listened to the xx, or at least heard some of their stuff. Got their self-titled album on repeat at the moment, great to fall asleep to.

Also, for any soft guitar you might be listening to, try running this in the background.

Been listening to the Other Lives album on repeat; super album really.

Every track has got me in different ways.

Checked out those tracks you posted.

The Whitest Boy Alive one was probably my favourite, but didn't mind them all.

Little Dragon.

Probably not ambient or chill, but still fucking cool. This is the most suitable song, but get your paws on their album, amazing stuff.

However, going from your knowledge, I'm assuming you are already familiar.

To be honest, I'm not the most knowledgeable in this sort of genre (if that was directed at me).

But!.. I'm getting there. Only really been getting into it properly over the last few months and so am slowly creating a collection.

You're my only friend in this thread, for future reference.

So you haven't heard Little Dragon? Typical FIFA music, has a song on it in fact. Similar to and does a lot of stuff with the Gorillaz.

Not sure if you'll like them, but certainly try their latest album, Ritual Union.

I'm not too good at the ambient side of things, and certainly not a full blown indie, but likewise do enjoy some of the stuff. Tend to prefer electronic stuff though (Air, Chemical Brothers, Cassius)

Lol, I'm quite far from Indie, but I love the music.

And yeah, will have a geeze at Little Dragon tomorrow, and tell you what I think.

In regards to Little Dragon, known her for awhile as I know a fair few females of similar ethnicity mix, ''My Step'' is the best song of hers by a long shot.

Plugging my good mates band, expect big things.

Finally got around to checking Little Dragon... Given her a tick.

Not the stuff I'd typically listen to, but I do enjoy a bit of.

Almost reminds me of very early Chromeo - but less electronic.

Gives me the same vibe.

Hendo, that track is decent as well.

Jumping on the plugging wagon... Lead singer in this band is in my class at uni.

They've got some Triple J air play, and I can safely say I was solidly impressed by their EP.

Needs more beard tbh. Nice tune though. Sounds like they've taken pretty heavy influence from City and Colour. Or vice versa without knowing much about those guys.

This is my favourite tune atm.

Well City And Colour have been around a lot longer, so you'd probably think they were an influence for The White Album.

These guys are Danish, and have only made the one album/EP.

This is my favourite tune atm.

Good tune, that.

Their name sounds familiar but I'm not sure if I've actually listened to them before or not.

I think a song of theirs was on fifa this year. They release an album every 6 months it seems. They formed from the ashes of a hardcore band surprisingly enough.

I cannot put my love for the Decemberists into words.

Oh, that reminds me, I need to get Ros' new stuff.

When are they playing?

Jim Ward, founding member of At The Drive-In and Sparta. My favourite singer, songwriter of all time.

I was there for this gig in Brunswick, epic night:
