Sigh! It's been a week of heartbreak and misery. John Mayer and Katy Perry split up once again, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton separated at long last, and as if things couldn't get any worse, Justin Bieber turned another year older! It's okay, though, as BitCandy and the team of Curators are here to mend your broken heart with this week's Best of Indie, Electro, PopSmut and Chill Out! Let's go!




new indie music

“Not gonna lie, this filtering business is becoming more difficult as the year progresses. Is St. Vincent the only artist with anything remotely interesting to offer the new indie music world at the moment? Sort it out, douchebags! Anyways it's cool as, against the odds, I managed to find you ten songs for my column, tentatively titled “BitCandy Meets the Grim Reaper.” Hmm, it's got a ring to it, no? Thanks to the Curators who helped me out with today's pickings from London Grammar, Phantogram, Trust and more. If you think you've got what it takes to be a Curator, sign up here (read more...)”

“So how are you this week? Did you have a good one? Mine was pretty awesome! I did a whole bunch of things! Let's see if you did anything similar to what I did. Did you sleep 7 nights? Were you awake 7 days? Did you go to work or school? Did you drink any beers out at bars with your friends? Did you watch any tv shows or movies? Did you talk to another person or animal? Did you spend anytime indoors or outdoors? That's all really good to hear. But -- did you listen to any music? Okay, phew. ME TOO. Why don't you take some time and listen to a couple of more musics though. Pop in your headphones and turn the volume ALL THE WAY UP. fuck yo job. music is life (read more...)”



indie pop

“Who needs a bowl of Wheaties to start the day off right when you have a list full of hot ear crack waiting for you? And yes I am aware it's only Tuesday, but PopSmut will be perking your ears and titties twice this week because indie bands have really stepped up the game over the past couple of days. Rarely does this happen and when it does we make the tune-age rain like Lil'Wayne at a strip club. Scroll through and enjoy the tasty beats below (read more...)”



chill out

“If you've come here expecting to hear Coldplay's new single, then you've come to the wrong place! 2008 called, it wants its Bon Iver tribute band back. Obligatory Coldplay diss to one side, how are you doing? Oh, I'm very sorry to hear that. I blame Coldplay. Sounds like you're in need of this week's best chill out music. Thanks to the Curators who helped me out with today's pickings from Iberia, Koda, Young & Sick and many 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! BitCandy and the team of Curators are back on Monday with more music filtered direct from the blogosphere! If you'd like to contribute to any of our weekly roundups, sign up here! Anyways, time for us to go and get ready for our date booked in with a trio of newly single ladies. Katy Perry, Paula Patton and Justin Bieber!

Love BitCandy xXx
