[Unofficial] #VinylMePlease May #Vinyl Challenge
Day 22 - "Indie"
#NowSpinning: #NiceAndNicelyDone // @spintoband
I think I've changed my pick at least a dozen times for this challenge. Probably at least 85% of my collection would largely be accepted as "indie" as it's only been in the last year or so that I've really started branching out and trying new things. As previously mentioned, I was in undergrad in the mid-00's and had a college radio show and maybe I'm biased but I really feel like that was peak indie rock/pop time and all of that music is still hugely influential in the kind of stuff I gravitate towards.
I remember seeing the cover of this CD in the radio studio and being intrigued because does it really get much more indie than approximating an embroidered cover for your music? "Oh Mandy" was one of the singles beingrecommended, I pressed play, and I fell completely in love. Their aesthetic, the playfulness, the kind-of-weird-but-still-very-pop sound is, to me, the heart of that "indie" vibe.
