People may sneer at their skinny jeans, record bags and obscure vinyl collection, but indie kids are consumers of a market that represents a 27.5% of the music market, according to eMusic.

To celebrate independent labels that through the years have brought us awesome acts like Bloc Party, PiL, Arcade Fire, Paul Weller and Vampire Weekend, eMusic are promoting a double CD of independent songs recommended and covered by some of our favourite bands.

Download the album from eMusic between the 4-7th of July and enjoy The Futureheads covering Swedish pop princess Robyn's With Every Heartbeat; The Prodigy interpreting The Specials' Ghost Town and Devendra Banhart lending his gentle side to Don't Look Back In Anger by Oasis. 

CD2 offers a jewellery box of obscure indie gems as recommended by Maximo Park, The Charlatans and Editors.

So don your favourite converse and oversized shades and get on over to eMusic
