Cosmonauts (heart) Stars

Stars, I've mentioned them here before and I'll mention them here again. Stars is a kick-ass band. Not only do they make the best not-so-much-about-love love songs, they also make great soundtracks for independent short films.'Tonight' is a 6 minute film about the...

Leisure Centre Love

  There must be something in the water at the Latchmere Leisure Centre for this band to be passionate enough to write a song about it. And passionate it is - from it's intro of rolling beats , to it's rhythmic opening lyrics (yes, 'Swimming swimming, swimming,...

Stalking is fun…just ask Hello Saferide

I'm going to round up my Swedish indie music themed blog posts with a solo artist from Stockholm, Sweden called Hello Saferide (real name: Annika Norlin).This pretty young gal broke into the internet music scene with a song called "High School Stalker"- a cute pop...

The Best Love Songs are the Ones That Aren’t

Blog postings are coming way slower than I want them to be. Okay, so I won't promise something everyday...not with all the stuff that I'm doing for the DB (which admittedly, is at a snails pace in becoming the definitive indie music resource). Of course there's...

‘If You Leave’ Swedish Indie Pop Style

There's a couple of things about Sweden that I like the most - Swedish meatballs, Ikea Furniture and most importantly, their indie music scene. Not only do they have great taste in affordable but stylish furniture, but the Swedes have actually nailed down the heart...

Gypsy Punk is perfect for afterlife road trips

I never thought I would catch on to the Gypsy Punk movement, but after getting Gogol Bordello's song "Through the Roof N' Underground" stuck in my head for almost a week - I'm certainly wanting to give his other songs another go on my Mp3 player. If you haven't...

‘None’ spelled backwards means rock your drum and bass

If I had a choice of picking just two instruments to create the perfect song, I would choose the drums and the bass guitar. I'm  partial to the drums, since I play the drums myself and would actually appreciate a song with just drum playing. That said, I'd love...

Making it big with songfights and Sears portraits

I admit, this is cheating. To make up for the three days I missed - I'm featuring 3 songs from one band. Two bands actually, but the two songs are the same song - and the same vocalist in the band sang that song under a different name. So technically it's just two...

Manic, Melancholic and Magnetic

Manic, Melancholic and Magnetic

If I ever had the urge to woo anyone with music, I'd probably pick up a mandolin and sing a Magnetic Fields song. It's the anti-romantic, utterly pathetic, sometimes cheesy but always funny, tug-at-your-heartstrings, endearing alternative to those run of the mill, top...

Johnny Unitas and the Indie Music Connection

Johnny Unitas and the Indie Music Connection

As promised, I've got another song featured on the site. This time from a group from Portland, Oregon called The Kingdom. "I Am Constellation" comes from their debut album Unitas - an album named after the American football legend Johnny Unitas. I haven't listened to...

The Indie Music Database? Where’s the Database?

Well...it's coming. After several months of thinking, planning and procrastinating, I've finally managed to get the blog  up. But hey, it's totally indie, there's a bit of music, the database part.. just needs a bit of work. Call this a pre-beta version (if there ever...
