Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: May 2014

America's White Boy Hipster Music Playlist May 2014I decided to super-size this month’s playlist with 15 songs (again). May is a great month for new music. Artists begin releasing new music for the Summer.

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!

Potato Potato – “Morning Sun”

Le Trouble – “Fine Line”

Vancouver Sleep Clinic – “Collapse”

Mr Little Jeans – “Good Mistake”

Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes – “Sun Goes Out”

Bombay Bicycle Club – “Luna”

Firewoodisland – “What’s Underneath”

CHVRCHES – “Recover”

The Shallows – “Win or Lose”
