Indie rock died in , or , or maybe it was Or was it the moment when Modest Mouse and Wilco — critically acclaimed major-label bands that embodied indie rock's cultural peak — became the kind of acts that soundtracked chill car commercials? Doubts of this nature are to be expected as indie rock meets a third decade and routinely shows up on the charts. Indie rock is still, by and large, a genre dominated by young white guys with guitars, who are now creating music for a public that's increasingly unsure what to make of it. At a time when pop music is at the vanguard of so many powerful ideas, identities, and sounds, it feels as if indie rock exists in an airless bubble. Why should we invest in the stagnant musical efforts of America's most privileged group? Four years after the band's meandering debut, the follow-up is filled with even more interchangeable reverb-soaked pop songs, would-be shoegaze anthems, and brief noise ditties. It's hard to find progress in music as woefully familiar as this: The vocals are still outmatched by the blurry guitars and sleepy chord changes. That dullness is amplified by a song-deep tracklist that feels overcommitted to the band's shallow, one-trick aesthetic. There's an uptick in energy when lead singer Zachary Cole Smith cedes the microphone to a similarly disheveled peer, Sky Ferreira.
And naturally, the talk turns to social media. The bands weigh in on what it means to be Lo-Fi, what Chillwave is, and how much it sucks being broke on the road. The videos themselves are solid efforts, although it can feel strange to watch several programmed for you in the age of creating your own playlist.
An average of a billion rock tracks are uploaded to the Internet each day, leaving music fans with more than a glut to wade through. Hive's Martin Douglas is here to do your dirty work for you, with this all new, monthly round-up of the 10 best indie-rock tracks you need to put in heavy rotation. Remember back in , when every all-girl band even tangentially influenced by classic girl-group records was tied together as a scene supposedly revitalizing that particular sound? Seattle surf-rock queens La Luz are not only direct descendants of groups like the Crystals and the Shirelles, their recently-released seven-inch sounds like it was plucked right from the classic Girls in the Garage compilation. We here at Hive have not exactly been shy about our love for this Bay Area group, and as the old saying goes, no good deed goes unpunished. The song finds the Mallard knee-deep in stirring post-punk as well as they did off-center garage and saying goodbye as memorably as they said hello. Of course, the highlight of their recently released album Sunken finds the Chicagoan quartet playing up their most Deerhunter-y tendencies a balmy, alluring guitar line and a steady, driving tempo while not sacrificing their own upbeat energy. Not to mention its lightly tinged melancholy makes it a perfect soundtrack for the waning breaths of summer. It starts off with pummelling force and a threatening voice shredding his vocal cords yelling at you, then the pace picks up and things really get violent. Twin brothers with high cheekbones.
If it is already an issue in your relationship, then it'll amplify to an extreme if you get married. Just let things keep going. She's such a martyr and a great person for doing this. I completely relate to all you've written; many of us have come to see Mormonism for what it is, and the severe damage it does to human brains. Whereas white and black may both sleep in on Sunday and tie their left shoes first, Mos have a set of behavioral norms that are in serious conflict with Nomo lifestyles. The point to this story is that when he had any free time he wanted to spend it with me. The man had essentially been in acadamics his whole life and was emotionally immature. No hard feelings, is not his fault, I said yes when he proposed based on the life wee had at that time, my fault for not doing some re search and find out how is really when you are a register or in the training programme. Have those candid conversations with HIM, ponder, and listen closely for the guidance of the Holy Ghost. Well if she knew or ever found out, in her eyes you'll be a loathsome perverted deviant in need of sex addiction counseling.

If anything MTV went too far back to its roots as a music video channel.
It would be better if MTV delved into these bands regular lives, how they go from stage darlings to anonymous waiters and sweater-folders at the Gap. When describing life on the road, Jesse Cohen from Tanlines put it best.
