Built To Spill - Big Dipper
Luna - Slash Your Tires
Poppier version of Galaxie 500.
Teenage Fanclub - Star Sign
One of my favorite tracks off Bandwagonesque.
Pavement - Shoot The Singer
Pavement has so many good songs…
Voxtrot - New Love
This band got me through high school. I miss them a lot. But at least I still have THEIR SONGS.
Cloud Nothings - Nothing’s Wrong
Regardless of all the publicity the newer albums get, this one is really the only one I go back to. So bouncy and fun. Very much “indie pop” as opposed to the louder rock sound they went for with their follow-ups.
Sambassadeur - Kate
the bassline in this will never leave you. unbeatable swedish indiepop
Moped - Through The Cracks
A nearly forgotten 90s band, which is a shame. Moped tears it up. Girl/boy vocal trade offs, with a solid pop-punk sound. Plus the songwriting is great and really catchy. FFO: Swearin’ or 90s indie rock.
Thin Lizzy - Running Back
Thin Lizzy definitely has a poppy softer side, and this track exemplifies that style. That piano riff hooks me every time.
