February is usually a pretty bad month here in the Midwest. Tons of snow makes for quite a hermetic lifestyle. You watch a lot of Netflix and try to find something to pass the time. We hope this month’s Hipster Music Playlist helps out.
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!
Radical Face – “Sisters“
Night Terrors of 1927 – “When You Were Mine” (featuring Tegan and Sara)
Band Practice – “Band Practice Theme Song“
