i do this often
New Soccer Mommy out today. I miss some of the "rough around the edges" aesthetic that Clean had, but my goodness, Color Theory is wonderful.
STRFKR - Never the Same
had no idea Modest Mouse was around in 97, gonna have to check that out
and I think that was their 3rd or 4th album at that point.
A lot of albums I like on there. Arctic monkeys at 2 is a joke
Yeah was blown away when I saw their discog on red, ended up just mass downloading with the abundance of tokens they've thrown out
Was surprised how many on that list I actually know of and enjoy
Idk how you get weezer on an “indie” list
Yeah think that’s just kind of you play rockish music, that’s not metal or grunge, in 90s and youre dumped in Indie land.
I can't fully get into Tame Impala. I've tried. I don't know what it is. They put on a pretty good show. Saw them Roo '16 late night. Will see them headline Roo this year to close the fest.
I just can't get their complete vibe.
I love em man. I’m not gonna lie to you.
I don't hate you for it. Maybe if that had more songs like Elephant
always thought Elephant was one of their more boring offers from the first two albums, outside of the sweet little synth breakdown
I think I would like Tame Impala more if their (or his, really) songs didn't all sound so samey. The music is generally good and well-produced, but if you've heard one song, you've heard them all. Sort of the AC/DC of psychedelic pop.
Saw Strand of Oaks at a festival today, fucking love them. Believe I’ve mentioned it in here before but the lead singer was living homeless where I was born in PA. Always felt a special kinship over that.
That's pretty cool, didn't know that. I've been to Roo once and they were a random pick to attend during early hours. Fantastic performers. I haven't loved their studio work but I would see them again in an instant.
downloaded this The Guru Guru album after seeing them split a nice live cover song with my people from Brutus and I was not disappointed, looks like they just released a new one last month to dig into as well
I feel like this song would be a lot better if it was shorten down to 4-5 minutes by cutting each different segment in half.
Matt Berninger is an angel, and this is a new song he put out a couple days ago.
this of course is not a new song, but a Mercury Rev cover that was done for Planned Parenthood
The Lemon Twigs - The One
Had no idea it was a cover. I'll check out the original.
the national also released a nice cover of 'never tear us apart' this week
New Diet Cig album out May 1st, called "Do You Wonder About Me."
This is "Thriving"
Caroline Rose, "Do You Think We'll Last Forever?" Album out Friday.
I know hes been mentioned in the past and their are a number of hoops fans in the thread, but the new kevin krauter album is solid. (I was kind of eh on his first one)
I got invited to go see Silversun Pickups this Thursday. Always kind of liked them, but never went out of my way to seek them out. Curious to see how they are live. It is surprising how many good songs they do have that I am familiar with.
Also getting tix for Car Seat Headrest and Starfucker this week.
Are any of these shows worth attending. I like all these bands, but don't have any feel for how they can be live...
Archers of Loaf
Angel Olsen/Mount Eerie/Eleanor Friedberger
Soccer Mommy and Big Thief are absolutely worth seeing.
I saw Bright Eyes at a festival years back. They were fine, wouldn't necessarily judge them one way or another based on the setting. Enjoyable enough.
The new Best Coast album is great. Don’t see any reason they wouldn’t be great live as well.
I saw them open for Modest Mouse or maybe The National about 6 years ago or so. They were so so. I do really like the new album though.
angel olsen, big thief, bright eyes are a big yes from joe. tennis pivoted in more of an R&B direction but their shows are fun. delta spirit and M ward could be fun for nostalgic purposes
Not always the case, but getting sober like she has usually leads to better live shows as well.
Only 2 I have seen. Both strong live.
Silversun also worth seeing
You know who's better than Silversun Pickups. Yuck
Angel Olsen is amazing live. Wouldn't have any interest in Mt Eerie though
Soccer Mommy crowds >>>
New Ohmme album out in June . This is "3 2 4 3"
What does this mean? I’m trying to see her in a few weeks and am having to convince friends to go, so I can use any ammo I can find.
She's a 22 year old female so presumably her audience is of a similar demographic.
Of course this is the indie thread so I'm gonna have to label such crude references to "talent" gross.
Just a fun and inclusive environment with lots of young female hipsters
Albums on my 2020 playlist so far:
**Denotes current personal fav
Thank you for all the inspiration and keep it coming.
Pom Poko - Praise
Hamilton Leithauser - Isabella
the Walkmen are obviously a sentimental favorite for me but goddamn I love this
Have listened to The Main Thing a ton this week and it's really grown on me. I think I love it now
You and November are some super sweet songs to have back to back
they can make the same album over and over again and I’ll still listen
