If its modern alternative (and I mean proper alternative - not what some deem alternative), proper cutting edge, experimental material then you should sample some of the material released by Benbecula Records.

Benbecula Records is a Scottish independent label started in the late 1990's, primarily an electronica label, but over the years it has broadened its roster to include indie, jazz and modern folk amnongst others

The label makes available music that normally wouldn't be released though it's highly successful subscription service featuring its highly limited monthly "Minerals Series". With the material on offer it comes as no surprise why the label was a great favourite of the late great John Peel.

To quote the website -

"Benbecula remains a step ahead of its peers by daring to go where others fear to tread, but remaining a formidable global force in highly modern but entertaining music."
