    Bluebottle kiss is a fantastic Aussie band. It's hard to get their EPs unfortunately but the LPs are around. And Ghost notes are great as well, just released their debut album which I have to check out.

    The Naked and Famous




    I absolutely love the Naked and Famous. Passive Me Agressive You is such a hit in my book, and they seem to put out beautiful work in their music videos as well.

    Although I'm a little indie hipster whore, I'd rather not bore you all, but here is one of my favorites.

    Empire of the Sun.



    And another Naked and Famous one.

    M83 is my favorite indie band. They are releasing a new album this year which I am really amped about.

    We Own The Sky:

    How do you embed the videos into the post, instead of just having a link?
