Indie Party Playlist

analog-disposable-hipster-indie-Favim.com-532128 I’m a big fan of parties and get-togethers because they’re fun. That’s no big surprise. My wife and I love having dinner parties where great food, drinks, and conversation is had and the backdrop is great music (usually compiled from past playlists here). I was thinking this week about what a party would be like if the patrons were musicians, instead of just having a playlist in the background. What would that party look and sound like. This is it, a party playlist with all indie music. A few covers in the mix as well including my friend Bess Rogers’ new band Secret Someones taking on a Nirvana b-side and a few other surprises. Enjoy.

Sound Bites: Crazy Lady

The Fat Fox Southsea2 I like songs with an intriguing song title. I’ve admitted that on the radio show, even confessed that sometimes a song name alone will cause me to check out a band’s full album. I can’t help it, the oddest things capture my attention.

So when Crazy Lady, the song by Free From Gravity, came across my peripherals, I had to see (or in this case, hear) how crazy the song could be. To my surprise, it’s a nice trip through a not so crazy tale.

An 80s rock feel throughout, reminiscent of Marillion with a hint of Pink Floyd, this song dives more into a straight love anthem than a tale of jilted lovers, as I had expected. It turns out the song has a little more of a personal story, regarding how the lead singer Vince Barnes hadn’t written anything about his current love. The title of the song might throw that off, but Crazy Lady is an impressionable song about devotion and commitment. Insights into the back story are available on the Free From Gravity site. The guitar work, especially the solo, is some of the best aspects of the song. Here’s a preview:

Free From Gravity hails from Portsmouth, UK. They’ve been playing together for several years as a 4-piece rock act.

Sound Bites: Lost Yourself

MikeMuse When punk goes acoustic it slows things down enough to be understandably honest. For even die hard punkers, trying to grasp the lyrics of hardcore speedsters like Boris The Sprinkler or Strung Out can be a bit daunting.

Then a few guys took just their acoustic guitars and translated the genre into a slightly slower, but no less emotionally aggressive art form. We can thank Billy Joe Armstrong, Chris Carrabba, and nonmainstream guys like NUFAN (No Use For A Name) who made this version of punk more well known.

Mike Muse is an acoustic punk rocker from Indiana, who cut his teeth playing bass and singing in the band Amuse. His latest project is a solo punk record of songs that jump back and forth from shocking imagery into psychological intrigue. Lost Yourself, the single from the upcoming new album, cuts into the heart of strong punk rock with edgy lines girded with a well-produced acoustic track.
