In response to the mod's comments about not wanting to post stuff that everyone already knows about, I think you should just do it. Post everything you find relevant to the community no matter how small or large the news is. The goal afterall is to facilitate discussion and talk. There's a good member base already, all we need is topics. There's a lot of great sites and communities out there already that focus on japanese indie, and all their news content and discussions are very similar. The material across the internet is more or less the same, but we have the uniqueness of being on livejournal. So lets all generate some topics.
Here's a list of some of the sites I frequent, where interesting subjects are abound:
My favorite label: http://www.1fct.com/ (home of downy, dhal, ooioo, spangle call lili line, spanova, speedometer, etc.) <-- that's killer right there.
I'll make some actual posts in the community after some studying for midterms. Talk to you guys soon.
