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 the first new Black Keys song in five years, an album from Helado Negro that is among his career best, and the unexpected the return of The National who continue to prove why they are one of the best bands of this era. Yeah, it was a pretty great week for new indie music.
