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!

Needed something to play at work for everyone, so this is perfect timing! Good idea for a semi-regular segment.

Most of the lesser known bands here made the best tracks

Pumped to check out Dude York, SUSTO, Temples, Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah, and Dryjacket when they all release new albums this winter/spring.

Only just found out about them but 'Fireproof' more than piqued my interest

Don't know why but actually got a little (very small) Beatles vibe from that song

just saw clap your hands at a living room show a few months back. still keeping the spirit of mid-00s blog indie alive!

temples' last album was great, very '60s influenced psychedelia you would probs dig sowing. if the new one is more electronic i am intrigued

lol weird that you just saw them, I didn't even know who they were until a few weeks ago

and yeah I was really intrigued by 'Certainty' so I have a good feeling about the new upcoming Temples

their first album really started the trend of pitchfork hype training nobody bands off the strength of one single. check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKdspWe-KdQ thankfully his singing has improved somewhat

Although if we're being technical indie isn't a genre
