I know the term Indie was coined for artists on independent record labels, but the term is now widely accepted to relate to a sound (although there are so many sub genre's of Indie that's kind of irrelevant now as well.) And yes I know there are still many indie labels around today, but it feels wrong to dismiss an album because it was released on a major label

Also there are many independent record labels around today which produce only dance music, so again the term indie has pretty much lost it's original meaning.


Drugstore - Drugstore
The La's - The La's

Both Go! Discs, which I believe was an indie label before being bought by Polydor in the mid 90's

Not indie record labels

Eels - Electroshock Blues (Dreamworks)
Fountains of Wayne - Fountains Of Wayne (Atlantic)
