    :wavey: Hello OT Tunes crew! I am hoping that you'll all be of assistance in helping me find music that is similar to the types of songs / music I am posting below.

    I am hoping to find Artists and mainly Albums (not just individual songs) that are similar in sound / style to the various tracks I am posting below.

    If you like Sigur Ros, you'd most likely enjoy Frou Frou and Imogen Heap.

    www.pandora.com will work as well, search for a song or artist and it creates a radio station of similar music

    I think for your indie taste you might like Copeland and their Eat, Sleep, Repeat album.
