The Dead Weather are great




The Sheepdogs are popular in the Ontario indie scene, not sure how well known they are otherwise

The Sheepdogs were (not sure if they still are) getting some serious airplay on a few of the radio stations here on Halifax, primarily their song "Who?".
I normally get annoyed when songs get overplayed, but it didnt happen with that one. I picked up their EP "Five Easy Pieces" early last year.. not even realising they were the same band from the radio.. and it's been a mainstay on my iPod since (I usually change most of it after a few months)..

Went to see them live in Montreal with Wool on Wolves. There was about 20 people in the crowd and 10 of them were me and my friends ahaha. But they're pretty good. I don't have the full album though.

I think these guys are starting to get some recognition now that they've been opening for Thrice, but their album did come out in 2011 (my fav for that year), but in case you haven't heard of them yet, here you go...



Another good one...

I was supposed to see them with Circa Survive in October but the show got cancelled, so pissed.

I saw Moving Mountains and O'brother open for Thrice back in 2011 and both are amazing live.

The Wrens are my favorite under the radar band. The Meadowland is about as perfect a album gets, but the just never had the luck to strike the spotlight. I did hear one of their songs on the night rider remake a few years ago now.

They're so versatile, as made evident in the Colour EPs, from folksy Green, to gritty Red, to theatrical Violet. And three concept albums. Home, Crow and Cackle, Black Sandy Beaches, and His Hands Matched His Tongue are probably my four favourite. They're a fun band to jump into because they have so much material that's all so different and engaging.

Have fun! I posted Time & Place because it's the most approachable/catchy (Also the best song ever written about Nikola Tesla), but Used To Be Mine and Andy are my favourites.

Good list of bands. TDCC is the ****, and soooo amazing live. I really like Lighthouse and the Whaler, and my friend just got me into The Oh Hello's, nice, pleasant, warm music. Hard not to smile when Hello My Old Heart plays.

Haven't really got into Yukon Blonde or Bombay Bicycle Club, but I think I just haven't given them enough time, so I'll check that out again. And I've never heard of Kensington so I'll make sure I check that out as well.

Next batch since my last one was well-received.

Frightened Rabbit was mentioned in the OP, but for those who have not heard the... *insert appropriate word that has not been invented yet*... that is Scott Hutchison's songwriting here's a sample:




Also might have been mentioned, but Hey Rosetta!



New Navy


Plaid Dragon


Wildlife


Slow Club



The Jungle Giants



Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin


The Kissaway Trail

I mentioned them in the OP. I think Idlewild were the most underrated indie band I've ever seen. 6 albums by now. They seem to be on hiatus though their singer's done some solo stuff. Their 2nd and 3rd albums were probably two of the best indie albums I've ever heard, I'd recommend listening to 100 Broken Windows. They came up with fantastic choruses and they're one of the few bands listen to where it doesn't seem like any song is getting old for some reason.

Soooo pumped they're finally releasing a new album this month. I have a buddy who knows them, he went to a party where they played their new album for everyone and he said it's amazing. And Pick Me Up rocks, so I believe him.

I quite like this Canadian band. Great pop rock, releasing their 4th album this week. They're from PEI, nice but simple songs and I'd recommend their 2nd album:

Good stuff, I recently stumbled upon the Oh Hello's as well. Second Child, Restless Child is a great song. Looking at your other posts too, the Jungle Giants and, Hey Rosetta! are two good bands in their own right. You might like "Fly Under the Radar" by the Stillwater Giants, some more Australian indie. The Last Dinosaurs also have a solid album, Weekend is real catchy. And that telepopmusik cover is great!
