This list answers the questions "who are the best folktronica bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest folktronica musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular folktronica bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
