Indie Tube is a collection of indie rock videos from YouTube with corresponding links into Last.fm music. The mashup lets you watch, download, vote and submit videos. If you discover a band you like, clicking the Last.fm link will provide you with more information and ways to buy the music. The idea is to target and promote indie bands through the use of two large scale, mass media distribution networks. There’s also a newer version that lacks some of the original features (pictured below).
