Indie music has grown to include so much. It’s not just music that is released on independent labels, but speaks to an aesthetic that deviates from the norm and follows its own weirdo heart. It can come in the form of rock music, pop, or folk. In a sense, it says as much about the people that are drawn to it as it does about the people that make it.
Every week, Uproxx is rounding up the very best of the indie releases from the past seven days. This week saw a great duet from The National’s Matt Berninger and Julien Baker, Maggie Rogers nailing a cover of a Taylor Swift classic, and Cass McCombs continuing to prove why he’s one of indie’s most dependable songwriters. Yeah, it was a pretty great week for new indie music.
