Been really into these guys lately...
(But then, I've always been a big fan of DCFC since the first time I heard them in 2001)
Your Friday Flashback -
How do we define the term "Indie" as I think I'm into it but is it just rock whats the difference?
I talked about that in THIS POST. Basically to me it's all College Radio. I don't mean Classical or Jazz, or Blues, or Bluegrass, stuff that's supposed to be "edifying" broadcast from a college that happens to hold an FCC license. I mean what college kids want to play and hear.
No Top 40. No Dad Rock. Just whatever. My station stopped doing rap 24/7 cuz the kids didn't like it and the DJ's weren't students - guys from the community taking up studio time. So I'd listen and noticed all the girl / surf / psychedelic influences - but better than the originals. But it's whatever you pick it to be. Here's the timeline I stick pretty close to:
1980 - 1989: College Radio
1990 - 1999: Alternative
2000 - 2005: Gray Area
2006 - Present: Indie
Great band! I think a new album will be out soon.
Oops - I posted this yesterday. Belated like.
Just saw Courtney & Kurt at the Showbox a couple of weeks ago (also Bob Mould and Vic Bondi the night prior at the Crocodile). Looking forward to Filthy Friends and First Aid Kit in January.
