Often I hear this stuff at neighborhood coffee shop, when they are playing one particular Pandora station, which I think is called Americana or American something. (Amerindie?)

Tennis sounds nothing like Raveonettes and their singer sounds nothing like Neko Case (I really like them though)

Yes, my description is kind of wide of the mark.

Found another attempt to describing this kind of stuff by ilx0r Lamp here: ILM'S TOP 77 ALBUMS of 2010 (NOW COUNTING DOWN THE TOP TEN)

i do think theres a strain or i guess subgenre of 'indie' that doesnt really get rep'd or mentioned in ilx polls. jangle-y, simple lo-fi guitar pop sort of stuff like wild nothing or beach fossils or seapony or tennis or whomever thats hardly an less accessible or obscure than rangda or emeralds or zola jesus or w/e. & it does feel like these bands have little to nothing to do w/ like the national or arcade fire style indie formally or emotionally.

i mean i like this type of music & voted for a couple of lo-fi indie albums i thought were special but it is mostly a tracks genre - all those cassettes and 7"s lol - but it fares poorly there too. idk its not like ilx eoy polls wld be 'better' if this stuff was better liked, but it is a real blind spot

Makthaverskan could definitely fit, though the singer's voice is more Charly Bliss than Neko Case

Both of those work, thanks.

Reminded that some of this stuff can have a Joy Division/New Order thing going on- clattery drums, high Hook-y bass lines.

Really thought of starting thread about Tennis but thought it might get lost among threads about the sport.

Something that wouldn't count would be Wussy, because they are closer to the classic rock wing of indie. Something that almost counts, the track, not the band (or the weird video), but doesn't because the vocals are too choral, too Euro, too ABBA, and not girl group belting is this:

tennis are so dull to me. they just radiate whiteness in a way that makes me want to put on any record that charted in 1973. also when i think of the raveonettes i think of music that's either gloomier or scruffier at the edges.

what about leggy? she-devils? stef chura?

She-Devils yes, but not the other two.

Vocals seem to be a little too ironic, in Bob Dylan/B-52s sense.

The idea here is the juxtaposition of something that is more or less a conventionally pleasing pop vocal, the bigger the better, with a somewhat noisy/lo-fi/DIY track.

The above is not a value judgement, just an attempt to limn a thing.

No. Vocals too, um, ethereal.

Dum Dum Girls (particularly the ones produced by Sune).

Dum Dum Girls definitely. Not sure about any of the other three, maybe Black Honey.
