Best New Indie

Thanksgiving is almost upon us here at We Are The Guard, and the chill we feel is probably due to the drop in the thermometer and the debut release from Loma called Black Willow.
Before we head home to eat our body weight in carbohydrates and express gratitude for elasticated pants this Thanksgiving, We Are The Guard has once again filtered through the blogosphere to bring you the latest edition of Top Indie Songs for your listening pleasure.
JMR might have turned in the most secular Silent Night of them all, while still encapsulating the holy loveliness of the original. The requisite vocal harmonies stick to the source material, which is given a futuristic sheen with dubstep sub-bass wobbles.
As November grinds on, we're fixing you up with yet another dose of Best Indie Songs this Monday, featuring Two Feet, TheFatRat, Foster the People, and most definitely not Taylor Swift!
Brand new from HYDDE comes another collaboration, this time with Vives to produce the very theatrical I Am the Mountain. Keep it here as I celebrate my 100 music reviews and recommendations for We Are The Guard with this very euphoric experience.
The We Are The Guard indie holiday song playlist wouldn't be quite complete without some of the sweet mixes of Micky Blue's interpretation of The Christmas Song. Blue's vocals receive the auto-tuned treatment with a minimalist approach that is a two-and-half minutes of computerized acapella.
It's that time of the year once again where we blast Christmas carols every day and all day, but not just any Christmas songs. This year we’ve gone all out with our very own Christmas compilation. Jamie Lidell puts his own personal spin on Do You Hear What I Hear.
Still Young, by Chicago’s I'm Thirsty, is dirty, raw, dangerous, and damaged hip-hop. It’s excellent. Still Young will re-awaken the revolutionary bones in your body, instantly transforming you into an angsty drug-addled emo teenager.
There is something inherently charming to Bakar. His music comes off effortless and organic. This shows no less in his new song, Small Town Girl, a simplistic ballad intent on swooning a chick off her feet.
