The Indie Sabbath 11

A Quick Word from the Authors:

Rounding out the end of SXSW and beginning of the NCAA Basketball Tournament we bring you this week's Sabbath.

Three years since the release of their last album Whokill, Merrill Garbus' project Tune-Yards announced their third studio album, due out May 5, with the release of the eccentric song "Water Fountain". Everyone's favorite indie/blues act The Black Keys used a creepy video to announce their new album Turn Blue will be out on May 15th (their new single "Fever" should be out on Monday). Visiting the BBC Live Lounge this week BANKS performed an acoustic cover of Aaliyah's "Are You That Somebody". Rounding out the indie news Tame Impala released a live performance of their song "Be Above It" that will be apart of their forthcoming record store day contribution entitled Live Versions.

  • The Pasture Less is more — slow-churned nights need a soundtrack too, and relaxation is underrated. 
  • The Kindle represents a peak of accessibility where the masses will be drawn to the raw energy exposed throughout.
  • Lastly, in The Tryptophan indie gets plugged. What ups the ante more than experimental electronics and synths?

The Pasture

The Pasture


Drawing from hushed textures the intersection between folk and translucent melodies can surprisingly be seamlessly navigated. So kick back, chill out or fall asleep – but be sure to stream the easy-going tracks below for the epitome of mellow.

The Kindle

The top forty that no one knows, the songs that you pop on that party playlist, the tracks you belt while driving 80 MPH on a dessert highway, or the jams you blast alone in your bedroom, rocking out with your socks on, solo style. Wherever you are, you’re in for a treat by way of indie beats.

The Tryptophan

The Tryptophan

The Tryptophan is a playlist for the forward-minded individuals, filled with everything from airy ascending melodies to mind-bending beats that work to spark a progressive, yet equally grounded mindset.
