I know this is now solved, but there's a simple solution that wasn't

    find . -type d | perl -pwe 's|[^/]+/|   |g'

Remove the "-type d" to get all files instead of just directories.
Note the obvious extension to print id3 tags by having a function as
the second element in the pipe, so that it prints the indent, the
name, and then the id3 tag if there is one.
