I decided to super-size this month’s playlist with 15 songs. March is when a lot of bands start releasing new music. Many of the songs this month also have great videos. Make sure you check out Big Data’s music video for “Dangerous”, it has one of the oddest storylines in a music video ever.
I always keep an ear out for new music. I love discovering new bands/songs, it’s a habit from my days as a music journalist. Even though this is mostly a sports blog, I still add quite a bit of music and pop culture content.
I have been called a hipster on more than one occasion. I like indie music more than any other genre of music. Don’t get me wrong, I can rock out to Richard Marx or Ace of Base (depending on the amount of alcohol in my system).
Here are 15 new indie songs I’m currently listening to. All of the songs are fresh and most have only been released within the last two months.
