2014 was a memorable year for the site. We had a record number in visitors. I want to thank everyone for making the site a fun place. I need to think of something special to do. In the meantime, we prepared a nice Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist this month.
January is usually an extremely slow month for music. I did manage to find some new material and a few gems off some albums released late last year.
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. Your ears will thank you for listening!

Paperwhite – “Take Me Back“
