Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: August 2015

Roger_Minick_16I’ve went on ‘get off my lawn’ rants at the beginning of my Hipster Music Playlist posts the last few months. I’ve been on a campaign for bands to be authentic and not try to manufacture grime and use low-fi tricks during the mixing process. You will not lose your ‘indie cred’ by releasing crisp, clean records.

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 love checking out all the recommendations you send. Keep them comin’!

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).
