Blog on hiatus. I really enjoy doing it, but since most posts get seen by 1 or 2 people, it’s probably not worth it to keep going. I’m open to suggestions on what kind of indie music blog might be useful to a wider audience if you have any. In the meantime, enjoy what is here. The YouTube playlist is awesome – so much good music and lots of live videos of indie acts. See you at the concert.
15 minute indie rock playlists – both video (YouTube) and audio (Spotify) by me is what you’ll find here. Some playlists focus on a single band – say “Grizzly Bear” for example – and some are just themes like “beach music” or “chill” or “psychedelic”. All built by me – an Indie Rock lover, concert goer, and downloader, to give you a nice intro to a new band, or a nice little escape from the rest of your day enjoying tunes for the mood you’re in.
Why am I doing this? Because sometimes you don’t have hours to check out the latest playlist or the time to search out music that you’ll like. 15 minutes of music curated by someone who loves Indie Rock can hit the spot. Catch up on a band you’ve been wondering about or just spend 15 minutes chilling before your next commitment. It’s all about spending just 15 Minutes Underground.
