My two favourite bands of all time:
Wintersleep - An amazing indie rock/pop band that got me into the genre in the first place. However, they experiment a lot so you can't really pin down their sound, but I really like the variety that it brings. They have an astounding creativity, and I never get sick of their songs! Plus, Paul Murphy is a great singer whose voice fits their music. It also seems that they are getting better with each album, which is really promising.
The New Pornographers - Another indie rock/pop band, but they differ from the former. Unlike Wintersleep, they have their own sound, yet they can make lots of songs within that sound without being repetitive. Their songs are really catchy and usually pacey as well. Also, Neko's and Carl's voices mix very well, and they're both fantastic singers (they have Dan too, but he's not as good)! The only song I can recall disliking was "Your Daddy Won't Know", and that was a cover. And for those who wonder about the name, no, their songs aren't dirtier than average.
Of course, there are other bands I really like, but these are my two absolute favourites.
