The term indie rock, which comes from “independent”, describes the small and relatively low-budget labels on which it is released and the do-it-yourself attitude of the bands and artists involved. Now Indie Rock has a much larger definition but it leans mostly towards the freedom to create and express without boundaries and restraints.
Here’s this months list of interesting new music discoveries.
