Top Class of Indie Bands

By Indiebands Subscribe to RSS | February 15th 2012 | Views:

In the past decade or so the music industry has dreadfully declined; the popular, mainstream music seems to all be created simply for commercial, financial means and not for great music. The search is tough, but if one looks deep enough good music can be uncovered. There are ample indie bands that produce incredibly pleasing music. Indie Bands such as Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, The Shins, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros [among others] are a few key examples of outstanding independently-created music. The large majority of independent bands are vastly innovative, bringing new trends left and right.

Passion, soul, and true inspiration are all factors that have been left out in regards to the performance of bands in the contemporary music industry; going to live performances are almost embarrassing, as the musicians horribly-lip sync, and cannot even throw in a few good dance steps to spice it up. Indie bands throw up some of the best concert due to the unexpected ability to actually be able to play [better] than their studio albums. This is the way it used to be with artists such as David Bowie, The Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra and all the other greats. Somewhere along the way this seems to have been [sadly] lost. Watching Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros perform live is one of the most sensually-appealing concerts one could attend. With frequent audience interactions, passionate lyrics, and outstanding on-stage maneuvers, Alexander Ebert (frontman) seems to bring back some of the great music that seems to have been lost. This is one among many indie bands that is able to do so.

One of the prominent reasons these bands seem to be inherently passionate in regards to their music is because an independent band is [technically] a band that has not yet signed to a label and therefore must independently-fund their projects. Most of the afore-mentioned bands are not truly independent, as many are signed to a label, but there has recently been a genre created by these bands. The fact that they must independently-fund their projects means that they aren’t in the industry for the music; they create music to please themselves along with their followings. Not being told by a label what the band must produce enables creative freedom to produce whatever said band would like to produce (this is why Indie Bands are inherently innovative).

That being said, this doesn’t mean that all “mainstream” created is poor music. There are ample great examples of well-curated music including Michael Bublé, Adele, Norah Jones, and the list can go on. However, the “mainstream” music is music that is already popular, and rarely has much innovation anymore. Take a listen to various Indie Bands and it will be easy to understand where this is coming from.
