check out Guantanamo Baywatch, La Luz and Sick Hyenas, among others. there's a lot of good new surf/garage.

the indie sites have turned into pop sites and what we have left is a lot of garbage floating around the web. the first wave of big music blogs have long-since crested and it's time for some new online voices and places to discover actual underground music. until then, thank god for local music scenes.

Hey look, this is actually about music. I was one more Ariel Pink/War on Drugs/Grimes/Madonna/ Mark Kozelek/Perfect Pussy gossip story away from never visiting this site again, and then you totally redeem yourselves with something worth reading.

the tape resurgence is driven by local DIY music scenes – cheap and easy to make and they fit in your pocket at a show.

Pretty sure it'd be impossible not have a label pulling the strings when yr first single is associated with Michael Angelakos, Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat.

Seriously enough of these celebrity crowd-funding projects. Only suckers give money to a multimillionaire with the industry connections (both Hollywood or indie) that could make this happen with traditional financing.

agreed. he's talented but he's made some of my least favorite albums by some of my previously favorite artists ... Beck, James Mercer, etc.
