This song was written ironically. Combining elements from bands like Arcade Fire, the Lumineers, and Vampire Weekend, we wrote and recorded this song in two days, and then we made a video that looks like an Urban Outfitters commercial.
And with my one last gasping breath, I’d apologize for bleeding on your shirt.
If you’re trapped inside on a beautiful day, this is the next best thing to being in the great outdoors.
There’s plenty of ammo for the argument that tech professionals are basically total hipsters. But the reality is, the companies themselves are pretty much analogous to indie hipster music acts.
Now you can actually prove that you’re not a hipster because you liked all this cool stuff when it came out.
Why are there so many rock songs about being sad and lost in Chinatown?
This is the formula, the code has been cracked. (via reddit.com)
British indie band The xx covered “Last Christmas” on BBC Radio 1 and gave it a dark, brooding spin. Take that, holiday cheer!
The band recorded a song for Fox’s Bob’s Burgers and another for HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, both of them fantastic.
Vimeo user Hey_Rabbit filmed this compilation on her Canon Powershot from January 2011 to January 2012. My new, and relatively late New Years resolution is to do this starting in 2013.
These albums deserved more. Whether that be more praise on year end lists or simply deserving at least a few more listens that they didn’t get, these albums were underrated in 2011. After debating my choices make sure to also add your own suggestions.
Are you tired of ridiculous music genres? Yes? Well here’s one more! You may think that this new genre based off of Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! isn’t real but let me assure you this is very serious. Celerywave is the next big thing (it’s not) and is blowing up very quickly (I just made it up) so you should probably jump on the bandwagon (there is no bandwagon) before it launches into space and you can’t catch up because NASA can no longer take you there.

It’s that time of year; everyone has begun making their top albums list for 2010. One artist takes a simplified approach by stripping down the original artwork to minimalistic vector drawings. Take a peek at some of the year’s best! (Via ) View List ›
The video for Indie-pop band Of Montreal’s new single, “Coquette Coquette” has it all - barbarian invaders, cannibal natives, bloody battles and dead bodies being humped. That is all you need to know. Watch Video ›
Before Ke$ha spread glitter all over America, Brooklyn-based electropop trio Tayisha Busay was spreading it all over NYC. Here is the WTF-worthy (in the most fun sense of the word) video for their single, “WTF You Doin’ In My Mouth?” Watch Video ›
Okay, so I may have altered the definition of Indie-rock a little, but I had to find some way of fitting all of these hot guys into one post. From the ones you’ve been crushing on for ages to the ones you’re seeing for the first time, there’s something for everyone. And they don’t just look good, they can sing, too! View List ›
It’s safe to say, images from the indie horror flick are so graphic they’ll be seared into your brain forever. But an Austin projectionist took it a little too far and had said images seared into his skin forever. Maybe leave this off your OK Cupid profile….. View Image ›
Being a hipster in the city has never been so easy! As long as you can deal with the hate… [Ed. note: This reminds me, the G train is down this weekend. Thank god it’s totally fixed-gear bike-riding weather!] View Image ›
Ever wonder what kind of hipster you are? YourSceneSucks helps you define which totally sucky scene you belong to: Apple Store Indie, maybe Hipster Jesus? Or in my case, it basically outlines regrettable boyfriend choices of the last decade. View List ›

Hot on the heels of their eponymous debut album, the Seattle-area band releases a video for their single “White Winter Hymnal.” Released to universal critical claim, the quintet’s album, and its reverb-soaked folk rock sound, conjure memories of early My Morning Jacket and classic acts like Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and Led Zeppelin (no, not “Black Dog.” Think Led Zeppelin III). Earthy and pastoral, the album serves as the perfect companion to a warm summer afternoon. The video, produced and animated by Sean Pecknold, nicely complements the transient nature of the song, not to mention it’s a pleasant little trip through a psychedelic clay land. Read More ›
Not quite blues, not necessarily folk, not totally rock, this Pennsylvania-bred singer/songwriter is making indie music bloggers very, very happy. Signed to V2 records and having recently landed a gig on Letterman, Langhorne Slim (along with his drummer and upright bassist The War Eagles) seems set on his way to appearing on many Best Of 2008 lists come December.

The Australian-born former child actor is making a splash with his futuristic funk that is as progressive as it is a throwback to eighties New Wave. Despite oozing a hipster aesthetic of dressing like an extra on the set of White Men Can’t Jump (and waiting for you to appreciate it), Sparro backs up his colorful style with a signature sound that proves he is, in fact, the real deal.

The boy-girl self-described “fantasy rock” duo is quietly making a name for themselves on the East Coast as they continue to draw comparisons to Postal Service and Broken Social Scene. Alongside labelmates MGMT, Savoir Adore is continuing in Brooklyn’s tireless fight to conquer the iTunes library of the skinny-jeans-and-bedhead set. Read More ›
Meet the newest, hippest purveyors of “noise music.” Although such categorization may sound like a torture method straight out of Gitmo, the kids are loving it. Read More ›
People are saying good things about her upcoming album of Tom Waits covers, Anywhere I Lay My Head. While the idea of an actor doing a concept album would usually make us shiver, ScarJo has apparently pulled it off. Read More ›
