    So glad someone mentioned AM. Their debut would be my pick, but those first two albums are stellar pieces of indie rock

    such a fucking masterpiece

    Listening to The Ugly Organ and Cursive in general for the first time right now. Pretty cool. Not what I thought it would sound like, a lot more intricate instrumentation than I expected, unsure why.

    Some of my favourite 00s indie rock albums would be:

    Autolux - Future Perfect
    Broken Social Scene - You Forgot It in People
    The Appleseed Cast - Low Level Owl: Volume 1 & 2
    The Antlers - Hospice
    Carissa's Wierd - Songs About Leaving
    Modest Mouse - The Moon & Antarctica
    Unwound - Leaves Turn Inside You

    The 00's was every bit as good as the 90s and 80s when it came to indie rock. In ten or fifteen years time this will become more obvious.

    Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest

    I was born in a swamp, born with no clothes on

    I agree with all the MM, Death Cab, AM, P.TM albums mentioned above. I'd add;

    Person L - The Positives
    The Starting Line - Direction/Based on A True Story
    Steel Train - Trampoline
    Weatherbox - American Art/Cosmic Drama
    Manchester Orchestra - Virgin/METN
    The Matches - Decomposer/A Band In Hope
    Dear & The Headlights - Drunk Like Bible Times/Small Steps, Heavy Hooves (Forgot about these, gonna spin them today)
    Deer Tick - War Elephant
    Envy On The Coast - Lucy Grey
    Margot & The Nuclear So and So's - Dust of Retreat/Animal
    Wild Sweet Orange - We Have Cause To Be Uneasy (I think this album needs attention by everyone on this site)
    Tokyo Police Club - Elephant Shell
    Tickle Me Pink - Madeline
    Thrice - Beggars/Alchemy Index
    Say Anything - IARB/IDOTG

    Note: I'm really bad at determining the correct genre

    It's a brilliant little punk tinged indie rock album. And what Cody said, that closer is among the best ever

    Honestly I think Dino Jr's 200's output is some of their best stuff yet and beats out like half of their 80's/90's material. New album is grrrrreat
