Playlist – May 5th, 2010

I’ve been collecting a lot of good indie rock-ish stuff lately, so I decided to share that with the listeners today.  Mostly all new stuff with a few fav’s from a few years ago thrown in for fun.  I was really dismayed with the indie scene for a while but in the last year or two I feel some really great stuff has been coming out, so here’s a chance to focus on some of those releases.

Peep the playlist below and re-listen via the podcast in the top right of the site.  Also, I’ve included album names as well for this list since there really aren’t any singles besides the first and last tracks.  The format is: Artist – Song (Album – Label)
