maxresdefault

I was scrolling through my Facebook feed today during lunch when I noticed that Manchester Orchestra had released a song off of their upcoming album COPE, coming April 1st.

Bon Iver- “Towers” Music Video

Grammy-winning indie band Bon Iver just released a music video for “Towers”, one of my favorites off their sophomore album.

Indie Bands You Should Know: GROUPLOVE

I hear a lot of different Indie bands with catchy songs on the radio, and every time I hear one I like to give their whole album a listen. It is very rare that one of those bands has a listenable album all the way through; GroupLove is an extreme exception. Not only is their…
