Best New Indie

What's up, everyone? Thanks for joining me for the latest edition of We Are: The Guard's Best Indie Songs! September may be just around the corner, but there's still a bit of summer to go yet! As ever, the team and I are here to help you make (...)
When scrolling through the home page at We Are: The Guard, attentive readers will notice a Weekly Charts on the right-most third of the screen. You may ask yourself: How did it get there? Are the songs ranked in any sort of order? What algorithms (...)
Fall is fast approaching, and with it, it's bringing a whole bunch of new indie music releases. If you didn't hear, some dude called “Bon Iver” dropped his album last Friday, so it's safe to say that we audiophiles have been a little busy this past (...)
If you're like me and have HAD it with #HotGirlSummer (there's only so much thigh chafing that a person can take), well, fear not as #SadGirlSeptember is fast approaching! That's right, the countdown to Lana Del Rey's Norman F*****g Rockwell! (...)
I'm going to go ahead and say it: Chance the Rapper and Death Cab for Cutie is the most ambitious crossover event in musical history. Like, even more ambitious than JAY Z and Linkin Park dropping “Numb / Encore” that one time. If I could (...)
Hey, everyone! How are you? How was your weekend? Did you go to see The Lion King? I hope that it wasn't nearly as emotionally scarring as the Cats movie trailer! One thing for certain is that The Gift – Beyoncé's album released to coincide with The Lion (...)
Hot Girl Summer is almost over, and Sad Boy Autumn is coming, everyone! Okay, okay – so maybe I'm getting a little ahead of myself, but I *am* incredibly hyped for Bon Iver to release his fourth album i,i this fall. Justin Vernon isn't the only artist with new (...)
Heya, peeps! Thanks for joining me for the latest edition of We Are: The Guard's Best Indie Songs! How are ya? How was your Fourth of July? Have you managed to shake off the last of your hangover yet? LOL! Anyways, while you were (...)
Happy July, you guys! Can you believe that we're over halfway through 2019 and there's still no sign of Norman Fucking Rockwell? Oh well, at least Thom Yorke has finally released a pretty decent solo album! I'd still rather listen to Radiohead, though! (...)
Summer has finally arrived, but we all know that we can't get the party started without music! Lucky for you guys, the team and I have been busy as ever working our way through the blogosphere in search of all of the freshest indie tunes (...)
What's up, kiddos?! Thanks for joining me for the latest edition of We Are: The Guard's Best Indie Songs! One week and 18 hours worth of leaked OK Computer MiniDiscs later (I never want to listen to Radiohead again in my life), it's SO good to (...)
Did anyone else genuinely tear up at the announcement of the death of iTunes?! No word of a lie, fam – some of my best years were spent obsessively organizing my iTunes library. It's legitimately sad to think that kids nowadays will never (...)
Summer has arrived, festival season is in full swing (who here went to Governors Ball over the weekend?!), and the music simply keeps on coming! No, really – it's been an incredible seven days for indie, with seemingly everyone who's anyone (...)
