General | Latest Info

Indie music is diverse. It is a sort of catch-all genre for artists who you wouldnt define as classical rock, pop or rap. For that reason, even for longtime indie listeners, there are always artists who go unheard. Whether this is your entree to indie, or youre just looking to explore new corner of genre, this list is a good place to start. From indie pop and folk to Rock, there is a variety. Soccer Mommy is one of the most prominent faces of up-and-coming indie Rock. Her often bright, catchy riffs and tunes are overlaid with honestly profound lyrics expressed with certain ambivalent nonchalance. Her most recent album, Color Theory, is biographical, and its hit track, Circle Drain, is testimony to her songwriting skill. Pinegrove joined the indie rock scene in early 2010s and quickly gained a fanatical following. Their sound is characterized by gentle rock influences and slight country twang. Songwriter Evan Halls ' lyrics are direct and sincere. Their latest album, Marigold, was released earlier in 2020. Situate among a set of great tracks, Hairpin features their distinct brand of slow-tempo Rock and poetry-like lyricism. Band of Horses moves in the direction of folk-Rock. Know for their 2005 hit Funeral, group has since released four full albums, most accomplished of which Is arguably Infinite Arms. Always focused on well-support acoustic energy, group has found success with rock-orient ballads, gentle, atmospheric acoustics and everything in between. Phoebe Bridgers has been topic of conversation lately, as her sophomore album, Punisher, is set for release in June. Her emo-Rock vein of indie is concerned with Dylanesque discussion of upsetting and mundane experience. One of her most recent singles, Tokyo, discusses a troubled father relationship in a frank tone distinctly her own. Tracks like Motion Sickness and Scott Street are dripping with musical talent and lyrical genius, all underlined by deep anxiety. Be sure to check out Boygenius, her collaboration with Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus. J Ember is probably the least recognizable name on this list, and perhaps that is because he has yet to release a full-length album. J Embers ' catchy and immersive tunes make you want to put on a wry smile and just enjoy his smooth, hypnotic sound. His EP, Green Eyes, was released last month, and the title track is a catchy pop-like song about inexplicable attraction. Eden is quintessential indie pop. His songs are generally composed of tenor and falsetto vocals over complex electronic backdrop, effect of which is to claim the experience of listeners and transport them into the world of yellow-lit tunnels and long camera exposures. Occasionally, delicate acoustic sound will break through, and Eden's emotional profundity is put on full display. His second album, No Future, drops in February. Alt-J has one of most distinctive voices in indie. Their debut album, Awesome Wave, feels perfect when listened to as a whole, and lead vocalist Joe Newmans ' almost whiny voice is hauntingly beautiful.

40. Spoon - Inside Out

If youre old enough to recall the classic video game Mike Tysons Punch-Out! Or young enough to know what NES emulator is, picture Britt Daniel as games improbable hero Little Mac: scrappy Little small-town fighter underestimated from the start who, against great odds, plods on, fight after fight, setback after setback, to finally take the title. Like Mac, frontman of Austin journeymen Spoon has never let down his guard, evading virtually every music-biz pitfall, moving from indie label to major and back again. With each album, hes reinvented his band to greater acclaim, eventually evolving from the guy everyone counts on to one everyone counts onfor radio hits, soundtracks and reliably solid rock & roll records. He coulda been a contender, but instead he became champion. Now, on the heels of the band's ninth and latest triumph, Hot Thoughts, and in advance of a two-night stand in Brooklyn, Daniel brushes off compliments, lets down his guard, and explains this musical rope-adope 25 years in the making. Does it surprise you when website Metacritic named Spoon as best-review artist of the decade in 2009? Well, I guess I was surprised because I had never even heard of that award. We certainly review better that decade than one before it. Speaking of previous decade, howd it feel to be back on Matador Records 20 years after it released your debut, Telephono? Its cool. It is a totally different thing now. We were all in much different places when we worked together back then. I think everybody would agree that record didnt sell as many copies as any anyone want, but I still love the label and the people there, although I wasnt really expecting it to happen again. We make Hot Thoughts on our own, and we pay for it on our own, like we always do. Then we see who wants to put it out. They just make the most compelling argument.

35. Clairo - Bags

With the release of a series of lo-fi self-record singles and intimate music videos recorded in her bedroom, Internet found different sorts of pop star in Clairo. The Boston native's lyrics read out like loosely jointed diary entries strewn on the floor, touching upon the realities and joys of being a teenager and growing up.

Bags, latest heavenly single from Clairo, marks the lead single from her long-await debut album IMMUNITY, set for release Aug. 2. The Project center around self-discovery and transition, from coming out as a young queer woman to being straight out of college, It is no surprise that in many ways, bags arrive departure from daydream-evoking musings of her teenage body of work. Taking heavy inspiration from shoegaze and the power of emotional vulnerability and far-off guitars that established the genre and generation of indie rock fanatics, bags oozes with tranquil despondency. Pardon my emotions / I should probably keep it all to myself / Now you make fun of me, coo Clairo as she steps into a series of repeated musings that are nothing short of heart-aching. It mirrors a similar moment of repetition found in chorus where she repeatedly utters lines, walking out doors with her bags. Resounding calm in spite of what seems to be ongoing inner turmoil builds crux for Clairo's growth as an artist. Bags showcases Clairo as an artist more than capable of eliciting a torrent of feelings and moods, from the deafening void left in the wake of dejection to anxiety of even showing your emotions. It is first brilliant introduction to the world of IMMUNITY and this new chapter of Clairo. For more on Clairo, revisit first time we discover Clairo singing alone in her room.
