There’s a lot of indie pop out there. One could easily argue, too much. It really all depends on your perspective. If you need to find and own it all, you don’t stand a chance. There’s entirely too much for that.
But if you just want constant exposure to new music, then there are enough bands that you could stumble upon a new one every day. I used to be firmly in the own it all camp. But the realities of time and money have caused me to settle for the latter.
One of the bands I have recently settled upon is Sunny Day Set Fire. They’ve got some singles out there, but their first full length album – Summer Palace – comes out in July of this year. If you head on over to their myspace page and listen to “Stranger,” you’ll get a good sample of what to look forward to on their July release.
Here’s “Wilderness,” also on the July release. The song has a good hook, and I really am drawn to the video. Check it out, and set aside $12 for July…
