I never listen to music on the radio anymore, but I've been listening to lots of indie music of late.
Bands include Spoon (from Austin!), Pavement, Sonic Youth (long time fav), Sixteen Horspower, Wilco, Waco Bros., etc.
They are still pretty active and have more music than the one hit played on the radio back in 98.

 The Lo-Fi Threat
The biggest threats facing the rise of surf music are the proliferation of cover bands, the invasion of the no lyrics=surf bands, and lo-fi.
The no lyrics=surf bands are more dangerous because their product will be bought by folks getting their feet wet for the first time, and the resultant boredom in listening to melody-free backtracks will turn them off forever.
Bands would do themselves, the music, and us all a favor if they waited until they were really ready to record before doing so, and release only the best tracks they can muster, instead of the cheapest.

 lo-fi - lo(w) fidelity, initially used to describe recording quality, later a genre referring to a breed of underground indie rockers (English translations)
During the late '80s and early '90s, lo fidelity became not only a description of the recording quality of a particular album, but it also became a genre onto itself.
Often, these lo-fi bands fluctuated from simple pop and rock songs to free-form song structures to pure noise and arty experimentalism.
Most of this music grew out of the American underground of the '80s, including bands like R.E.M., as well as a handful of British post-punk bands and New Zealand bands like the Chills and the Clean.

Another interesting aspect of the bandís current marketing status is Nadineís regular participation on the Postal Blowfish mailing list, informing the die-hard how the marketing effort is going (in very specific terms of what radio stations in what parts of the country are playing singles, etc.) and letting them know how they can help.
This solo/band split also became a problem with the bandís label, Matador, who thought flooding the market with Bobís music could alienate fans who are trying to keep up, at the same time dilute the buying power of the potentially wider popular music audience.

Techno, depending on whom one asks, has existed for approximately ten yearsit is not new music when compared with some music genres of the '90s: Lo-fi, Neo-Lounge, and Grunge, but it is music which has diversified and evolved considerably since its beginnings in the mid '80's.
Techno is, finally, a thoroughly mediated music, from its continually recombinant musical genres and its constant (re)generation of new categories, labels, and self- definitions, to its circular processes of both resistance and acceptance.
Listening to Techno music, attending clubs and raves, and discussing the nature of rave culture via the WWW are all leisure activities which are, for the most part, engaged in by individuals who live in industrialized nations and who have a surplus of both time and money.
