Here’s a quick look ahead at a handful of Q1 Alt/Indie tracks that have caught my ear in advance of their respective album’s release. If this is any indication, 2017 is going to be a vibrant year for electronically-influenced indie-pop and indie-rock, with the likes of The Flaming Lips, The xx, Dirty Projectors, and Temples shaping up this sheerly-for-shits-and-giggles compilation. I randomized the playlist’s order though, so there’s still a solid mix of more down-to-earth material, like Japandroids and Cloud Nothings.
Every song on this playlist is taken from an album that will be released between now and the end of March 2017. Give it a spin, skip around a little, or ignore it and go listen to something m/ as fuck. I just hope you give this a chance and perhaps discover a few new artists that you enjoy in the process.
Will probably return to this to do a Q2 playlist in due time. Enjoy!
