Best New Indie

Hi, everyone! How was your weekend? Did you go out to any gigs? Or did you stay at home and watch El Camino? I haven't got around to checking that out yet, so no spoilers please, bitch! If you're wondering why I'm not prioritizing seeing (...)
There was *so much* new music released over the last seven days, but there was only one song that the Internet really cared about: “LOOK AT THIS PHOTOGRAPH!!!” Truly, this wasn't the Nickelback redemption arc that I was (...)
Kanye may have clowned us by failing to drop Jesus Is King on Friday, but it's all good as there was plenty of other music to sink our grills into over the last seven days. Okay, so I'm not entirely sure if any of the songs featured in this week's (...)
Hey there you! Did you have fun at the most important event of the year, Alienstock (Storm Area 51)? Of course you didn’t ... because you, like us, didn’t go. Aliens or no aliens the government has that place on lockdown and no (...)
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), (...)

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 (...)
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 (...)
