Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: August 2014

Hipster Weird Funny America's White Boy Hipster Music Playlist August 2014Sorry about putting this month’s Hipster Music Playlist up late. I’ve been dealing with some medical issues and a case of the ‘it hurts to sit up to type words’.

August is hit or miss for for great, new music. Bands are preparing their Fall/Winter releases, so bands often wait until after August to release new material.

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!

LP – “Night Like This

White Lung – “Face Down

Smallpools – “Killer Whales

alt-J – “Left Hand Free

Bad Suns – “Cardiac Arrest

Ballet School – “Cherish

Finish Ticket – “Tranquilize
