...a label for things you can't label...a curious conceit...I quite like New Order...they're kind of pop though aren't they...?...and The White Stripes...they're kind of rock and roll though aren't they...?...

None of the above.
I like Coldplay but I wouldn't call them 'indie'; more like 'dadrock'.
I liked New Order when they were Joy Division, before Ian Curtis topped himself when the band was on the verge of becoming huge.

My favourite current indie band is The Coral.

Man, proud man, drest in a little brief authority, most ignorant of what heís most assured,
his glassy essence, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
as makes the angels weep.

cardigans, as they're one of my faves band tout court. and their latest is again of a very high level, not like their previous two albums.
