Saw this group open for Creepoid a few weeks ago, and they are definitely worth checking out.

Yes! Drives me nuts. Even when I get records from Three Lobed, they include a Bandcamp code. And they're about as small an operation you'll find.

I'd gladly pay more for Spotify if it meant more money for artists. I will also say that Spotify has allowed me to check out more artists that I'd eventually end up buying a ticket to their show. Side bar, really glad Drag City is on BandCamp.

The first 4-minutes remind me of a Joni Mitchell song. I really like what happens around the 5-minute mark.

I'd say less "mediocre" and more just "trying too hard to be clever."

I get more of a Jimmy Fallon-style Dave Matthews impression -- but yes.

The Lagniappe Sessions are such a great feature. Looking forward to checking these out. Steve Gunn and HGM's were both really good.

Lot's of really great acts doing weird and different things with guitars -- just gotta venture past conventional "indie." Look what Dave Harrington did with Darkside. Or Steve Gunn's unique-ish fingerstyle melds into neo-psychedelia (Ocean Parkway and Eyes on the Lines are good example of this, I think). Or fuck, Six Organs of Admittance has a new record out in two weeks and I've read diddly shit about it outside of AD. This all said, does noise/drone/psych rock not count as indie anymore?

Maybe not influential per se, but it was a culminating event, I think. It was a gathering of many of the the who's who at the time and some really great stuff came out of it -- especially if you consider it a 'B' sided and demos kind of album. In a time when I am increasingly aware of my whiteness (which I'm fine with), talking about the cultural impact of Dark Was the Night on Obama-era indie rock really takes the cake.

What a unique -- and awesome -- charity. When my grandfather had Alzheimer's his memory triggers were so weird and unpredictable. After reading this I'm kind of ashamed I didn't think of playing him his favorite music.

That seems pretty apt. Dark Was the Night was important. Like the Woodstock of indie rock... or something. I also feel like the start of "indie" codification goes back to the early 2000's with Shins and Postal Service and... everything on Garden State.

Pranav has been posting some great stuff. I don't comment really because I never feel like a discussion will ensure. Prisoner's Dilemma-ish. Keep it up Pranav!

lol @ Garden State-core. I agree 100%. And that's just the stuff coming across places like here, p4k, CoS, DIY Mag, etc. I feel like the stuff that I'm listening to in 2017 is grittier than in 2009. Granted, tastes have expanded and I've gotten way better at seeking out new jamz, but yea, agreed -- lots of really great, raw, gritty, organic (? kinda hate to say it) music out there.

I sometimes think that too, but then I stumble on a band not covered by the major sites and I discard that thought. Like last month I was reading Aquarium Drunkard and came across 75 Dollar Bill, and just thought, "fuck, where was this all year." I think my point is the rawness is there, definitely, it's just not being widely covered.
