Modest Mouse - "Dashboard"
Great indie bands that I want to see more of in RBN:
Minus The Bear - "Pony Up", "Double Vision Quest", "Knights"
Portugal. The Man (granted they are on a major label now (Atlantic) they are still indie) - "Lay Me Back Down" (Harmonies, Keys, Killer Riffs)
So Many Dynamos - "Keep It Simple"
Maps & Atlases - "Carrying The Wet Wood"
Protest The Hero - "Goddess Bound" (My word, the infinite sweeps)
Dear And The Headlights - It's Gettin' Easy
Just a few suggestions for anyone willing to listen.
Even if an Indie band is tied to a major label I dont think that should mean no attempt can be made. Considering Evanescence, Creed and even Seether came from Wind-up tied to EMI. Some of the tracks mentioned in the OP have even been Free to download on iTunes, which should mean there's a good chance something can be worked out.
Speaking of which is anyone working on getting "Bring me to Life" RB3 version? That song desperately deserves Harmonies.
