The Softer, More Melodic Side of Indie

Indie music covers a wide range. For this Sunday afternoon, I decided to highlight the more melodic, soothing side of Indie Rock.  Every few months someone reports the death of Indie, but I think what they are really mourning is a specific sound of the 90s and early 2000s.  A harder, punkier sound.  These articles are wrong in every respect.  That sound still lives on in plenty of bands still playing from originals like Sleater-Kinney to newer bands like Bleached and The Kills. But Indie has branched out to so many more genres including electronic, Psychedelic, and much more.  In this playlist you’ll hear some quite popular bands playing music that you can just sit back and enjoy.  So take off your shoes, turn off the news, and relax.

On this playlist:

Alvvays – Dreams Tonite
