New Indie Rock
Free alternative rock music

All of us want to label everything. The humanities will be the worst offenders of the propensity with virtually everything being categorized into some time and style labels. This is none more true compared to "pop" music (you see you will find the label right there, can't bypass it). This is especially frustrating when trying to categorize something you feel can not be categorized; could it be Indie and Alternative music, or perhaps is it mainstream.

While i think of Indie music I do believe of a band jamming away in the garage. That is it - a band! Not only a lot of producers searching for the "Next Popular trend." The Beatles were like that, playing seven hour gigs in Hamburg, Germany. These were poor and had inexpensive instruments. The Beatles roomed in cheap hotels and to a big extent blared your tunes with their Rock n Roll idols plus some original songs. Naturally we all know what actually transpired for them - they went mainstream. Some would blame Brian Epstein with the, however it is in contrast to some Beatles themselves didn't want that simply because they most assuredly did.

If you think of the sixties you must think that the full rock music scene was Indie because it am counter-culture. Obviously which was the process of the counter-culture; to make certain everyone which was buying considered that these folks were getting the counter-culture instead of Madison Ave. With a great extent these folks were buying and doing the genuine article. Maybe that's true Indie music.

Then this first golden era of the producer emerged and demolished the fact that was good. Out were trotted the sound-alike slick corporate bands. To be sure many of them sounded amazing; I love this guitar rock band Boston for instance. The Punk era from the mid 1970's demolished the demolishers inside a brazen even from time to time bazaar release of anti-establishment energy. Then those bands split up and died, few or no went mainstream unlike their close cousins "New-Wave."

Those bands came into common use and a battle then raged between "New-Wave" and also the overly produced, but sort of fun, Disco. Hair Metal and Glam also took part in the 2nd great era in the producer. Finally, and a few would say thankfully, that gave way to the "Alternative" rock sound ensconced by bands for example Nirvana, Jane's Addiction, or Jesus and Mary Chain. These folks were the new Indie until that which was good became destroyed by the lure of cash and lack of talent. Pseudo "alternative" grunge bands suddenly appeared and took the stunning landscape of seething musicians twisting it right into a sonic conformity that inspired such large selling yet forgettable bands such as "Stone Temple Pilots."

Here we're - in yet another era from the producer where over-the-top produced bands like "Fun," and singers like Bruno Mars. And don't mind the "Indie/Alt" bands like "Foster The People" or "5 Seconds of Summer" (did anybody else recognize that "Hey Everybody" was lifted from another Alternative-band gone wrong Duran Duran?) which might be quickly adopting the un-dynamic sound of studio overproduction.

So what is it? Maybe Indie and Alternative music is one area that could only exists for a brief period of time like the element Neptunium. It can only exist as rebellion towards the conformity of overly-produced Madison Ave. commerce. Nothing wrong with Madison Ave., however the burning energy of true, if brief, Indie Rock 's what I need.
