Surprisingly great indie rock interviews

16Jul09

Ok, I like the whole indie rock thing; seeing an amazing band in a small venue is breathtaking, but its just so hard to keep up with the trends. I sometimes read pitchfork.com, unfortunately the reviewer’s taste is usually so weird that it warps my own perception (yea, Pavement and the Neutral Milk Hotel are great, but do they belong in the top five of the best albums of the 1990s?) But recently, I found some decent video journalism that gives a reasonably accurate taste of new artists. It’s all packaged into interviews just a bit longer than a pop song, and it’s…. on the American Broadcasting Company’s website… What? Yea, ABC Amplified.

Click on an album, then find that album in the short list. There’s also a lot of other great bands  interviewed on the site.
