Washed Out - live in NYC

Washed Out in NY

Washed Out in the Big Apple It seems every day Washed Out’s popularity meter grows more and more red. We honestly have a hard time keeping up with the fella. Ernest Greene, the man behind the namesake, played his first New York show at Manhattan’s Santos Party House on the 18th of October. There’s YouTube […]

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve been featured on Indie Vision Music for our interview with Cool Hand Luke.

Oh Dorina - Heather Kemp

Free: Oh Dorian’s NEW single, “Strung Finger of an Old Dear”

We have an interview with Heather Kemp, better known as Oh Dorian, coming soon to The Blue Indian. But, since we’ve made your eyes bleed with so many interviews as of late, we figured we’d hold off on posting interviews for a bit– at least until the weekend is up. Oh Dorian sent over two […]

My Beautiful Bride - Drew Goddard

A Blue Indian Exception: Mrs. Drew Goddard

To be clear, The Blue Indian is strictly an indie-music blog serious about its mission of “providing ways for the reading public to explore the different facets of art, including music, photography, video, comics, and fictional short stories.” But, sometimes, there are exceptions. And this is quite possibly the only “exception-post” that will be published. […]

Half-Handed Cloud (John Ringhofer) - Photo by Brandon Buckner

MP3: Half-Handed Cloud

The man behind the namesake of Half-Handed Cloud is John Ringhofer, an individual unwilling to succumb to the evolving advancements of technology. I haven’t had a chance to catch up with Ringhofer in the past year or so, but the last I checked, he was living in the attic of a church (rent-free), only with the responsibilities […]

Noah and the Whale

Band: Noah and The Whale

One of our favorite bands around here, Noah and the Whale, will be releasing their new record, entitled, “The First Days of Spring” on October 6, 2009. This is a date that has been marked on The Blue Indian calender for quite some time now. If you’re the vinyl-only type, you can grab the 7″ […]

MP3: Marissa Nadler

Marissa Nadler off of the fabulous Kemado Records sent over this gem, entitled, “Sylvia.” She’s highly discussed on several blogs/networks across the web, such as Pitchfork, Gorilla Vs. Bear, Stereogum, as well as major newspapers, such as NY Times, etc. Pitchfork says she’s “a voice you would follow straight to Hades.” The NY Times called her stuff “spectral verberations.” Ignoring […]

Karl Blau

MP3: Karl Blau

Karl Blau, who is signed to K Records, sent over this beautiful cover of Nikaido Kazumi’s song called, “脈拍,” or “Pulse Beat.” He names his version, “Stream of Ganders.” Both are available below for your streaming pleasure. There’s something worth appreciating when an artist covers a song in another language, especially when it’s not butchered. Blau never fails […]

Washed Out - Fun Run

MP3: Washed Out

I have so much more music to be blurbing about, but I just can’t get enough of this guy. We recently did a Q & A with Washed Out, a.k.a Ernest Greene, (search the archives) and every time I turn around, new Washed Out stuff is being leaked. His song, “Get Up,” one of my favorites, can […]

Mark Mathis

MP3: Mark Mathis

A week from tomorrow, I’ll be rehearsal the ceremony of my wedding. A year and a couple of months ago, I proposed to Drew Watkins asking her to put up with me for…. ever? Yeah, that sounds pretty good. This Blue Indian Blurb has a two-fold purpose: To give some blog love to my wife-to-be-in-less-than-a-week and To […]

Chandler - Blackout

“Blackout” by Chandler Reid

You have read a story by Chandler before called, “Night Carry Me.” An intelligently eerie tale that was. . . good, but strange. “Blackout” is clear as a whistle. It’s about a fight, the fighter, and what he’s fighting for. Unlike a great majority of the artists that are featured on Blue Indian, I know […]

Elf Power

MP3: Elf Power

After having released nine albums, two EP’s, a handful of singles, and touring America, Europe, and Japan, Elf Power definitely hasn’t thought about slowing down. Or at least it doesn’t appear that way. Veterans in the surging Athens (Georgia) music scene, Elf Power stays busy with their indie label, Orange Twin Records, which is owned and operated by […]
