Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: July 2015

funny weird hipster dog Sweetbob's hipster music playlistI went on a rant in last month’s Hipster Music Playlist post. I explained how much I dislike bands using low-fi recording/mixing tricks. It just feels disingenuous, especially when many of today’s bands want to make something ‘real’.

Well, I just want to clear up something. I don’t expect every recording to be as clean as a pop record, but you can just tell when a band is trying to ‘manufacture’ grime on a record. Be honest who you are and your sound will always be authentic.

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. Keep sending me tracks via email or Twitter.

I feel like this month’s list is fantastic. We super-sized the list once again with 20 tracks for your ears to drool over (also, don’t forget to check out our Spotify playlist).
