BEST OF INDIE
HAPPY HOLIDAYS, HIPSTERS! It's time for this week's edition of We Are The Guard's Best Indie Songs! Starring Grimes, MØ, SWMRS, LANKS, Vulfpeck, and five other favorites, this playlist has something for everyone!
NEW RELEASE: MXMS - AFTER NIGHT
MXMS’ "After Night" is a post-club music exploration from the edge of night. On "After Night," MXMS trade in the school of post-dubstep disembodied club music. Think the heartfelt emotionality of James Blake mixed with the spectral distance and vague sense of regret of early Burial.
BEST OF INDIE POP
What is up my little scrooges! Welcome back to the poppiest corner of the internet where we dive into the best songs in indie pop. This week it’s all about MXMS, Lila Drew, Emily Burns, and while we’re at it Mark Ronson. Listen now and thank me later.
INDIE CHRISTMAS DAY ONE: DENM - THE CHRISTMAS SONG
All I want for Christmas is a Garage-Dance alt-pop cover of Nat King Cole’s veritable Christmas classic. DENM wows with a modern reinvention of a song that I thought I’d never be able to hear again without stapling my ears closed to the side of my head.
We’ll see you guys next week with more music and features. Until then stay up to date with the latest and freshest in indie music by following us on Spotify.
