Play Listy For Me – Indie Pop Vol. 6

Play Listy For Me is our column where we share with you all the music we recently talked about in a genre blocked playlist, plus extra bonus songs.

Sure, a large portion of the country is stranded due to hackers shutting down a fuel pipeline / our continued dependence on fossil fuels despite ample technology available to make us not be, but at least we still got great pop music to keep us sane / distracted.

The B-Side: The Red

From France we get singer-songwriter The Red and their unique take on Americana / indie folk with “Pretend.” As the song starts all the usual roots suspects are there – banjo, acoustic guitar, strings, a road weary voice…but quickly things start to shift and move into unexpected territory with a subtle parade march drum beat and some sort of fuzzed out lead instrument that is either a vintage Stevie synth or an oddly eq’d electric guitar. It’s at this point that you notice that even the more traditional instruments are put together in a different way and you realize this has more in common with the literary and sophisticated pop of Rufus Wainwright than it does with Rufus’s dad’s work.

The B-Side: The Centrists

“Catch Of The Day” by The Centrists saunters out of your speakers with a decidedly throwback style not unlike The Kinks at their most playful or The Monkees at their most, well, Monkees-esque. It’s simple, it’s catchy and is a great way to start off the week on an audio sunshine trip.

The B-Side: Sharktank

God we love an oddball pop song that somehow simultaneously bucks current mainstream conventions while also giving you all the pop goodness you need. LEN’s “Steal My Sunshine.” OMC’s “How Bizarre.” Breaths of fresh air blowing across the stagnant pond that is Top 40. “Get It Done” by Sharktank is the latest cool breeze to relieve your tired ears. It’s joyous, it’s funky, it’s fun and it’s just weird enough to charm you thoroughly.
