I'm a little confused. Does the folk in "indie folk" simply mean "uses an acoustic instrument on occasion" or is something else tying all these artists to folk traditions? Can someone find articles linking the listed artists and their identification with the alleged genre? Just because something exists a tag on Last.fm doesn't mean it deserves its own Wikipedia article. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 19:06, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
A lot of these artists artists have recorded in a lo-fi manner at some stage in their existance - Bright Eyes,Elliot Smith,Mountain Goats,Beck,Lou Barlow,Neutral Milk Hotel... You might wanna put in somewhere how Lo-fi is a strong characteristic of this genre.
