Are there any big indie sacred cows left? We've had Pavement, My Bloody Valentine, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Slint, etc. NMH was always the jackpot I think, considering the emotional attachment of so many people to `In The Aeroplane Over The Sea` and its place in the tastes of the typical indie listener, as well as the mystery and sort-of disappearance of the band.
Is the indie nostalgia-well dry? Or are there other acts that would cause genuine excitement (not obscuro third-rate sub-Pavement acts either)?
