General | Latest Info

Indie Music is diverse. It is a sort of catch - all genre for artists who you wouldnt define as classic 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 the 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.S 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 Release 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 Release four full albums, most accomplished of which is arguably Infinite Arms. Always focused on well - supported acoustic energy, group has found success with rock - oriented 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 a 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, dropped 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.

Find collaborators

The best way to avoid this is to make sure you have all difficult conversations upfront. Bad communication kills dreams, so make sure you have discussed the following before you begin: What do they expect for themselves? What do they expect from you? Are you confident your artistic needs are understood? Have you been clear about what you expect from them? It might all sound a bit serious, but wed even go so far as to write it all down before you begin in agreement. It will help to be able to revisit what you originally agreed to when youre in the thick of a project and there is disagreement.

Manage your assets

Diy may not be the best strategy for Indie musicians. There are a lot of artists out there with excellent business chops, but theyre still not experts. And that is okay, because you have more important things to do, like creating music! The key is to find a team who is motivated and passionate. Instead of DIY, move towards a do - it - with - others strategy. Your team doesnt even have to be season pros. If you have a band, youre already way ahead of the game. Everyone has their own unique skills, so take advantage of that! Pop singer / songwriter Betty Who was able to be really successful with a team of college classmates. Producer Peter Thomas and Manager E than Schiff attend Berklee College of Music with Betty Who. With Peter Thomas, she was able to find and really latch onto her signature pop sound, and Schiff helped set her up on the business side of things.

In September 2013, song was featured in a viral gay marriage proposal video and just a few days later, she was signed to RCA Records.

The Capture

In the current landscape of the music industry, indie labels find themselves in an interesting, and complicate, place. As the glossy veneer of major label deals slowly crumbles away, helped by streaming services and emerging platforms like Steve Stoutes United Masters, what exactly is place for indie labels in 2017? I speak to Captured Tracks label founder and owner Mike Sniper, whose experience as a musician and & R informs his own business decisions and ideas on how to run an indie label. Captured Tracks got off ground in 2008 while Sniper was working at Academy Records. Sniper was also playing as Blank Dogs, stage name for his post - punk, multi - instrumental project. The Sniper explains that capture tracks basically just came out of release of his own as Blank Dogs, capture Tracks roster and reputation has grown massively since that early CDR. With artists like Mac Demarco, DIIV, and Wild Nothing, as well as exciting country blues musician Molly Burch, whose debut album Please Be Mine was one of the best releases of the year, capture Tracks boast pretty diverse collection of indie rock sounds. From Mac Demarcos ' ambient stoner rock, DIIVs shoegaze revival, Wild Nothings alternative synth - Pop, and Molly Burchs bluesy country rock, capture Tracks occupy massive swath of space in independent rock and roll. This is an interesting trait for a record label that does see itself as having any unifying aesthetic or sonic vision. When I asked Sniper about that unifying vision behind Captured, he told me there isnt effort to have a cohesive sound, but there is active intention to Be & R label that is constantly finding new acts: signing new artists is an especially notable mission from record label in the current musical landscape. It means that Captured Tracks is especially good at identifying young talent, supplying those artists with a platform, and properly packaging their music in exciting ways. But the diversity on the Captured Tracks roster comes from the Sniper and his team's own taste. And when looking to sign a new artist,s it really about their own drive: another aspect of Captured Tracks ' business model is capture Tracks Shop, brick and mortar store where customers can buy and sell vinyl and cassettes in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Snipers described capture Tracks Shop and labelled them as totally separate entities, but the creation of the Shop establishes a sense of community with their listeners. This goes in tandem with the idea of capturing as & R label with a passion for music discovery as intense as their listeners. Mike Sniper has been on many different sides of the music industry as artist, & R, and label owner. This gives him an interesting perspective on monetizing art and giving a platform to artists that have yet to make cohesive project.

Bloodline

Ahead of the release of their debut 2020 album, Canadian Indie newcomers Den have released their soulfully serene single Highway Bloodline. By mixing elements of Neo - Soul, 80s Pop, and contemporary Indie, Den has plenty of distinction to offer. But fundamentally, essence of their sound lies in the tranquilly arrestive experience which will greet you as soon as you hit play. With vocals somewhere in between what you can expect from Nina Simone and Angel Olsens ' more mellifluous singles, Highway Bloodline can only be described as hypnotic. Yet, overthrowing the ambience of the soundscape is the unbridled emotion which has been projected into Highway Bloodline, which will hit you through both lyrics and gentle melodious downtempo instrumentals. You can check out Highway Bloodline for yourselves by heading over to Spotify. Keep up to date with the latest releases by Den via Facebook.

Friends From College

It can seem like digital screens are replacing real people with online friends, but when Orchard asks their campus reps about students ' listening habits, they learn opposite real friends are students top influencers for new music discoveries and 18 - 21 year - olds are primarily sharing their favorite music in - person. There seems to be no limits to what types of music students listen to while studying or how many digital platforms they might explore for discovery and sharing. But while students ' digital explorations take them all over, personal connections, activities and concert attendance still dominate. It is something heartening that kids today know how to value what's personal important truth for young artists trying to nurture their fan base. Sure, Spotify's discovery and sharing tools are common, and college kids also engage with their favorite artists on Instagram, YouTube and Reddit. But these global sharing platforms have not replaced real word - of - mouth among college consumers as the most digitally savvy generation of all time keep it personal. Students, jump - start your music career! Learn More about GRAMMY U following music and culture in the US has often included reading Rolling Stone magazine over the past 50 years, thanks to the publishing success of Jann Wenner. So it came as a surprise last September when Wenner announced he would sell magazine.
