Not only was it 4th of July weekend, it was also our birthday here at Indie. Yep, we launched our unique format on a Fourth of July weekend 3 years ago back on the old fm band and then carried it over to the internet where we continue to push the boundaries and give you something different to listen to ANYWHERE you are. Thats right, we dont need no stinkin' signal - we can be anywhere you want us to be. At work ? Hit the big GREEN Listen Now button towards the upper right corner of our sight and - BOOM - you're there. iPhone or iPod touch? Scroll down the main page of the site here and you'll find instructions on what apps work the best (the one to listen to us is free). In the car ? We know you take you iPhone/iPod Touch everywhere and have the whole car rig so you dont have to listen to the lame-o radio, so once you have the iNdie app installed, you can have us in the car too. SWEET! Tell your friends too - we rely on word of mouth and nothing else.
We'd love to know where you listen - email me with a line or two: email@example.com Although we were born in Santa Fe, we consider the Rocky Mountain region to be our territory (from Albuquerque on up to the Wyoming border)
Bram Meehan suggested Just One Of Those Things, and we will play it Monday, June 6th. What can we play for you? Capitol records has bestowed a generous box of the just released Classic Sinatra 2 disc on us and we want to pass one along to you folks that catch the Five O'clock Frank everyday at 5p (mtn time) here on Indesf.com. The disc includes 20 gems and one previously unreleased track - "This Cant Be Love". We definitely will be beefing up the already large Five O'clock Frank library with this one..... Simply check out the track listing of the new disc and then email me your fave (firstname.lastname@example.org) and not only will we line it up to play on the 5 O'clock Frank, we'll send you a copy of the collection. Pretty swanky we think...all courtesy of Capitol records and Indiesf.com. As Frank would say - woopy doo! (Click Read More to see track listing).
Hey Indie Nation,
I had the opportunity to see the magnificent David Byrne Saturday night at Red Rocks and, as with the two previous Byrne shows I have witnessed, he left me with nothing to complain about. This show was different though as he showcased nearly 3/4 Talking Heads songs - something I was NOT expecting. While he is out actively touring on behalf of the disc he recorded with Brian Eno, Everything That Happens Will Happen Today, he weaved in and out of of classic Heads songs effortlessly (with a crack band backing him up). He opened with 'Strange Overtones' and followed it with 'I Zimbra'..!!!!
He pulled out some other obscure tunes like 'Help Me Sombody' (another Eno collab) and 'My Big Hands'. He revisited
Hey Indie Nation,
Well, I am back and rested from a nice long vaca in Florida (and have the old retired lady tan to prove it) and have just added scads of new music including a Ra Ra Riot/Vampire Weekend collab called Discovery. We only have the single right now called Orange Shirt but a whole disc is coming. The new Moby single arrived this week and I immediately added it to the library - a return to the sound he mined on PLAY (very Porcelain like).We also are featuring
The Michael Jackson trib Rocque did for us last Friday night on the Independent Get Down (dated 6.26.09) is now posted as a podcast so you can now pull it down onto your pc/mac, put it on you music player thingy, or simply play off our site....enjoy.
Hey Indie Nation,
Some of you already know I am off on vacation but, before I split, I was in the audience for Laurie Anderson at the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins last Saturday night the 6th for her touring retrospective, Burning Leaves. Almost as good as the show was spotting Lou Reed in the back load-in area of the venue doing Tai Chi. Yep, true story, as I pulled in
