Finally, something worth blogging about...

Pretty sure you guys have all been eagerly awaiting the return of the Indie Anna Blog, right? Well, your wait is finally over, at least until the end of this post. It's been a rough couple of months, seeing how just about every indie release has sucked mad ass. Hard to write a music blog when everything being released is garbage.

Luckily for us it looks like the drought might soon be coming to an end. The new year will be bringing with it Mine Is Yours, the third album from Indie Anna Blog favorite Cold War Kids. Get your first taste of Mine is Yours (courtesy of below. Enjoy!

Cold War Kids - Royal Blue

Indie Hip Hop? @JayElectronica

Last week I was going through my new downloads for the month looking for something to catch my ear. While listening to them, Corey made a mention of an artist that I should check out. His name is Jay Electronica.When looking for his music, his discography is sporadic at best. Releasing tracks on mixtapes (1 hour long tracks in fact) or tracks here and there released on various websites.

I found his "Victory" mixtape and listened to it completely. I am huge fan of Talib Kwali and Nas so with all the artists featured on his songs it was a great listen. His sound is very similar to Nas with some excellent beats behind his phenomenal lyrics.

Here are two outstanding tracks from that mixtape. His upcoming release is slated to forthcoming.

Houston Press Music Awards Showcase

This Saturday is the @HoustonPress Music showcase. Always a great day to check out the local music scene plus the headlining acts that breeze through to play. Big changes this year. This year the showcase is going to be on Washington Avenue instead of the downtown venues. I dig the change. I am sure parking will be a beast like it always is, but it will be interesting crawling from club to club.

This years headliners features Matt and Kim. I am definitely interesting in catching them live.

As always the showcase is for the awards that are voted on by you the public. You can take a listen to some of the bands on the website.  Check out mp3s from some of the acts here and see the lineup below.

See you there!

Travel sounds

As i travel, one of the first things i check out are the local radio stations. its more of a jealousy thing. (Is this town cooler than mine) Jump into the rental and start scanning stations.
Stop the scanning when I hear The Cure. I know. you'd think i heard "friday im in love" or "pictures of you". What i heard was "bloodflowers" which i haven't heard in a long time.

What i found was FM 94.9

From the airport to the hotel i heard:
Zero 7
Team Sleep
The Big Pink
The Hold Steady
Not bad San Diego. you rock a decent radio station.

(on a side note, AndroBlogger app sucks)
