Top 15 Indie Releases, February 2013
by Stephanie Benson | February 28, 2013
This month's roundup of the best indie, alt and punk albums jumps all over the place, from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' visceral, eerie, R-rated 15th (!) release to the funky psychedelic haze of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, the slow and seductive R&B flirtations of newcomers Inc., the vintage indie pop sounds of Veronica Falls, the gritty and dark noise rock of Iceage and Pissed Jeans, the jittery dance-rock of Foals, and the folky tenderness of Thao and The Get Down Stay Down, plus solo debuts from legendary guitarist Johnny Marr and My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James. Click the playlist to hear tracks from each album, plus new singles by The Strokes, Phoenix, The Postal Service, James Blake and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
