Best New Indie
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.
The simulation is officially glitching out, but at least we're getting some awesome songs out of it, right? RIGHT? Headphones at the ready, then, as it's time to check out this week's edition of We Are The Guard's New Indie Music, featuring Interpol, Fucked Up, AURORA, and lots more.
