Best New Indie

From Charlie's Angels to Charli XCX, it's safe to say that it's been a pretty iconic seven days for pop culture! I'm not sure that I'll ever get tired of seeing Lana Del Rey wielding a rotisserie chicken while Ariana Grande and Miley (...)
Hello, everyone, and thanks for joining me for the latest edition of We Are: The Guard's Best Indie Songs! While most people are still basking in the afterglow of Norman F*cking Rockwell! (okay, well, most people except Ann Powers), (...)
Just in time for Labor Day, Lana Del Rey returns with the perfect soundtrack to bid farewell to summer to. Norman F*cking Rockwell! is a F*cking Masterpiece! and I'd feature every song on the album here if I could. I mean, have you HEARD (...)
Whew! What a week! It feels like everyone who's anyone released music over the last seven days. Keeping up with all of these new sounds being beamed to your smartphone is no mean feat, of course, which is where the latest edition of (...)

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! (...)
