I wish there was an indie billboards chart or something to help us find an answer. But then again "Indie" can carry a bunch of different definitions (Heck, Sia could be considered "indie" in the U.S.). Despite not being a big fan, I think St. Vincent took the win statistically through sheer record sales. However there are a couple other bands on my roster who could've won. You can listen to them on my indie playlist called Riverside Drive.
I've been forming this playlist of indie songs for over a year and a half now while paying special attention to the genre, instruments, and beats of each song. If your planning on cruising down open roads with friends and your feet out the window this is the playlist for you! Riverside Drive features a number of familiar indie rock/pop artists like Imagine Dragons, Lana Del Rey, The 1975, Young the Giant, and Walk the Moon as well as some refreshing unfamiliar hits your sure to fall in love with. So, what are you waiting for? Get listening!
My playlist "Riverside Drive" just got some new songs added! Check it out below. spotify:user:sharkdavid:playlist:6e2Q1YlfPnrNe8JoIm3iVN

J Mascis' mostly acoustic new album has all the hallmarks we've come to expect from grown-up indie rockers making solo moves (piano! country flourishes!). But while the music may be growing more mature, Mascis is forever the vulnerable, heart-shredded, yearning boy, singing about his feelings in the same beat-down, reedy falsetto he's used over two-plus decades as Dinosaur Jr.'s leader. And though he plugs in for strategic, ripping solos throughout Tied to a Star, highlights like "Wide Awake" – his perfectly paired duet with Chan Marshall, which barely breaks a whisper – show that Mascis is now as skilled at quiet as he is with loud.
