What's up, hipsters? This is BitCandy reporting from the Staples Centre as the Bangerz tour stops off in Los Angeles for one special night only! As we type this, Sky Ferreira is boring us to death with “Everything Is Embarrassing.” Is somebody going to push her over again, or bust her for drugs again, or anything again? Anyways, let's get to this week's Best of Indie, Electro, PopSmut and Chill Out before Miley Cyrus takes to the stage and reminds us why we do this filtering shit for you!




best indie

“It's okay, you guys. Valentine's Day is over for another year. Did you get anything? I thought not. To make matters even worse, Ellen Page has come out as gay. So, there goes your chances of ever tapping that. Anyways, quit drowning your sorrows in that new Radiohead app and let's hug it out at this week's best indie songs instead. Big up to the Curators who helped me with today's pickings from Little Dragon, Metronomy, Twin Shadow and more. If you think you've got what it takes to contribute to any of our weekly posts, sign up to be a Curator (read more...)”



best electro

“It was Valentine's Day last weekend. I really hope that you had a beautiful night with a girlfriend or boyfriend or boyfriend AND girlfriend ;) or friend or movie or bottle of wine or box of chocolates or couch or restaurant or music concert or video game or absolutely nothing. I just really hope that you did something or nothing, you know? Whichever version of that you wanted to do. CAUSE U GOTTA DO U. Gotta love yourself first. Hey, get your mind out of the gutter. I spent my Valentine's Day ignoring my girlfriend and listening to music -- 'cause MUSIC is my true love. I hope that you agree and love this set of songs more than you could ever love a person. I'm totally just kidding? I don't even fucking know anymore (read more...)”



indie pop

“Someone puh-leez crack open a window here. It's starting to smell like steamy sweaty bootay mixed with an aroma of tasteful sophistimication. As you know, we've been hard at curating all week to uncover the latest and bestest tracks that the alternative indie realm has to offer. Honestly I think this may be the best PopSmut of the year. But if you disagree please by all means jot down your requests below. Hold the opinions for after you press play on the tracks below (read more...)”



best chillwave

“Spending your Friday night alone? Not anymore, as BitCandy is here to keep you big, fat loners company. So without further ado, let's get naked and vibe to this week's top chillwave songs! By the way, make sure you hang around until the end, as there's a treat awaiting you at the conclusion of today's roundup. Props to the awesome Curators who helped me out with this week's pickings from Twin Shadow, Monsieur Adi, Childish Gambino and more. If you think you've got what it takes to contribute to any of our weekly roundups, then go and sign up to be a Curator (read more...)”


That's it for this week's Best of Indie, Electro, PopSmut and Chill Out, but BitCandy is back next Monday with more music filtered from the blogosphere! If you think you've got what it takes to contribute to any of our weekly roundups, why not sign up to be Curator? As for the gig, we got far too close to Miley's weed print leotard when she was top of that gold Chevy and she stole our beer, and possibly our virginity too. Hmm, it's definitely time to make our homepage again!

Love BitCandy xXx
