What's up, hipsters?! Thanks for taking a break from catching those last-minute Cyber Monday deals in order to join me for the latest edition of We Are The Guard's New Indie Music! It's time to check out the following tracks from Karen O & Danger Mouse, The Vaccines, Shy Girls, GEMS, Hozier, and plenty of others!

Editor’s Note: the following was written on November 15th, 2018, the day before Anderson .Paak’s third record Oxnard was released. We now realize the error of our ways, but want to show you the full editorial process so as to disclose that we are humans too.
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!
