If you want to listen to what indie rock really sounds like, you may just have to tune in to KEXP streaming live:

http://kexp.org

Yup, those were photos I took from about three weeks ago.  The week after that show, I got to see The New Pornographers--see photos below. 

I was supposed to see The White Stripes last Wednesday, but Meg's physical condition prevented them from touring.  It looks like the only show I've got tickets for right now is for The Decemberist's two-night stand at one of the local theaters before year's end.  Between now and then, I may go see Film School, Ulrich Schnauss, The Turn-Ons, and The High Violets.

My favorite Indie bands
-Minus The Bear
(I loved their latest album Planet of Ice (listen to Throwin' Shapes, Double Vision Quest and White Mystery) as well as Menos Del Oso (Pachuca Sunrise, The Fix, Hooray, This Aint A Surfing Movie) and a few tracks from Highly Refined Pirates (Let's Play Guitar in a 5 Guitar Band, Absinthe Party). Any girl will go crazy about their lyrics. The images they paint in their songs are just mind blowing and beautiful. The guitar tapping is tres cool too. I admire their song structures--abrupt changes in time signatures, but the transitions were done seamlessly. Galing.)

-Stars (Amy Millan and Torquil <insert last name here> is a really great vocal tandem. They have the most beautiful songs such as This Charming Man, Your Ex-Lover Is Dead, The Big Fight, Calendar Girl, First Five Times...and many more. They have this very subtle sound, very dreamy and ethereal.) Very relateable din yung songs nila, so it's very easy to remember them.

-Leslie Feist
(I know she's not a "band", but a solo artist, but I really really adore her songs. Very simple and melody-driven. Her voice is just so beautiful. When you close your eyes and listen to her voice, say on the song So Sorry or The Limit To Your Love, you feel like you're bathing yourself in this creamy creamy blanket. Basta I couldn't think of the perfect word to describe her voice but creamy. Listen to Armi Millare, you'd describe her voice as "malamig", right? Leslie Feist's voice is goddamn creamy. I love her. Apparently Steve Jobs loves her too, coz she's in the new iPod nano commercial. Check it out on youtube.

An additional trivia: Some members of Stars, Kings of Convenience (another great indie band), Metric, as well as Leslie Feist are members of Broken Social Scene. They're 16 in the band all in all. I find that mighty cool.

My favorite Indie bands
-Minus The Bear
I know what you mean.  Seattle represent!  It's amazing that some of these members used to be in Botch, one of those super-technical mathy-type metal bands.  I got to see them last year at the Capitol Hill Block Party.  Too bad I'll have to miss their show with The Helio Sequence (another favorite band of mine from Portland, OR) this November.  But I think it's worth missing since I'll be visiting for my nephew's binyag.  Matt Bayles has since left the band but continues to support them by being their producer.  He's also since helmed the mixing boards for Mastodon.

Have you picked up Kevin Drew's new record yet?  It was released just recently.

You're welcome to drop by and check my blog as well.  I make it a point to post every day anything indie especially stuff that's either based in Seattle or in The Philippines.  There's also the odd weird news item, film, book, or TV show that I'd rave about, but it's mostly music:

Looks like the next show that I'm definitely catching is the second night of The Band of Horses performing at The Showbox on Thanksgiving week Tuesday.

RX 93.1 Opens Up the Airwaves to Indie Artists       
By Jim Ayson     
Wednesday, 08 September 2004 
 
Indie artists usually find a friendly ear on a few radio stations open to playing their music (NU107 for one), but most stations appear to concentrate on the product being pushed by the major record labels.

We just got word that RX 93.1 FM has now deviated slightly from the contemporary hit-radio (CHR) format focusing on music from the majors and has started a policy of accepting indie material - and playing these on the regular playlists alongside the Britneys and the Outkasts of the world.

According to RX 93.1 DJ Francesca, a program called INDIE GROUND has been started to solicit material from indie artists for playing on the regular all-day playlist (not just on a special time slot).

Francesca also mentions that the station is still looking for indie artists to add to the playlist. For more info, contact her at indie@rx931.com "... or stop by the station at the 17th Floor of Strata 2000, Emerald Ave., Ortigas Center".

I've seen PGMG before they broke up.  It was at one of the shows at a local all-ages (local gov't sponsored!) venue The Vera Project.  Check out post-PGMG band Jaguar Love which a couple of members formed with one of the Blood Brothers.  Intense ang bagsakan nila.  I've heard of Sharks Keep Moving...can't say I've seen them play though.

I've heard Moscow Olympics through Seattle's KEXP.  They had one of their songs on the playlist for a while.  I also managed to track down their EP and picked it up by mail order a few months ago.  I myself got to see +/- open for Versus (with Fontaine Toups on bass!) at The Crocodile Cafe six years ago.  It was one of the best birthday presents I could treat myself to.  In fact, I snagged Patrick's copy of the set list they played that night off the stage floor.  I may even still have photos of the show somewhere too.

Other Pinoy bands that I've heard are internationally making waves in the fringes (mostly in the indiepop/twee subgenre) include Carnival Park, Sodajerk, The Dorques, and Arigato Hato! 

I make it my business to know about the Pinoy scene too even if I'm based overseas since I write a music column for some Pinoy ex-pats.

sorry cant help it. i used bandnamemaker though.


you cheat!!! hahahaha... the names you came up with are better than the ones i made up.

Those band names remind me of Cocteau Twins songs, a bit nonsensical names/title but can attract people who want to differentiate themselves from the masses :-D

Gimik ulit noong Sabado. Went to see Phoenix and The Soft Pack (the band formerly known as The Muslims)
The Soft Pack (their new sound as a band reminds me much of what The Buzzcocks play)


Phoenix
