Best New Indie
I'll let you in on a secret: EVERY day is Halloween when you're a music blogger! No, really – I have to listen to some SERIOUSLY spooky sh*t as part of my job here at We Are The Guard! Fear not, however, as I've filtered out all of the evil tricks and left only the delicious treats for you in the latest edition of New Indie Music!
It's not going to fix or change the events currently playing out through our various screens, but I genuinely hope that the following playlist, featuring Muse, Matthew Dear, Robyn, Gallant, Nothing But Thieves, and five other favorites, gives you at least a moment's reprieve from this all-American hellscape.
That's right, despite being exhausted (read: hungover) from hosting our first-ever live night at Echoplex in Los Angeles on Tuesday (spoiler: it was lit and we can't wait to do it again soon), we've still managed to find the energy to filter through the blogosphere for this week's top indie music!
While most “meh” musical algorithms leave me with a flatline, this human-curated playlist is packed full of so many thrills, it was inevitable that it'd get my blood pumping! If you're also searching for an adrenaline boost, look no further than the following tracks from Gorillaz, HEALTH & Soccer Mommy, HOLYCHILD, Thom Yorke, and more.
