There are some pretty obvious picks here – Big Star, who people seem to stumble upon late in their indie-listening careers and find themselves completely destroyed by, or the Left Banke, who with a single song (“Walk Away Renee”) basically invented the Belle & Sebastian twee pop sound as we know it. And then there are my more recent favorites – my beloved Softies, or the short-lived but glorious Sea Snakes, whose Clear As Day, The Darkest Tools remains my favorite album of the last four (!) years. But what do you guys think?
