I guess if I keep ‘super-sizing’ these playlists to fifteen songs, it will soon become the norm. Well, it’s official. We will always include at least fifteen songs in every hipster music playlist going forward!
July is an awesome month for new music. You can’t have an eventful Summer without a soundtrack that goes along with all the tomfoolery.
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.
Your ears will thank you for listening!
