10 More Indie Songs You Should Be Listening to This Summer

If it was up to me, I would lock myself in my room and listen to music all day. There are a few things that give me more enjoyment than listening to my favorite songs, as well as searching for and experiencing new music.

Whether I am just relaxing, writing for Midwest Sports Fans, or just surfing the net, I always have music playing in the background. I truly believe music saves, so anytime I can share some of that with people I do.

Below are 10 indie songs I’m listening to that I recommend everyone check out. They are a nice complement to Jerod’s 18 Spectacular New Off-the-Radar Songs for the Summer from last week. Hopefully these are songs that you haven’t heard before, and hopefully you’ll enjoy one or two of them.

With that said, let’s get right into the music.

1. Souled Out!!-Conor Oberst 


Conor Oberst is well known in the indie community and for good reason. He’s made albums since he was 13 and has even been compared to Bob Dylan, whether he agrees with it or not.

This song comes from his 2008 solo album. I love this song and album because it’s a glimpse of the more optimistic and fun side of Oberst then you usually see with his main band Bright Eyes. The music video compliments the fun, optimistic feeling. Enjoy.


2. Steady Rollin’-Two Gallants 


I cannot stress the greatness of these two guys enough. Two Gallants is a two-man band based in San Francisco who get to tour the continent but must drive their van to the venues. The simplistic yet complex rhythm patterns along with the great story telling is what makes this band so great and worth listening.


3. The Cure for Pain-Jon Foreman

(iTunes or his website.)

I’ve been a huge fan of Jon Foreman since I first got into listening to music religiously, and my love for him has grown more and more each year. A few years ago he released four solo EPs: one for each season. This song comes from the Fall EP.


4. I Believe in You-Black Dub


My dad turned me onto Daniel Lanois a few years back. Known mostly for his producing, Lanois is also a really skilled musician. His newest band is called Black Dub and they’re a mixture of blues and rock.


5. Turn-Ein Astronaut

(Get his stuff here.)

I found this guy on Youtube and instantly loved him. It could be because he performs all the instruments and produces the songs as well, but the guy has talent to go along with everything else.


6. Mellow Out-Jeff the Brotherhood 

(Get their stuff here.)

I can’t remember how or where I found out about this band, but I haven’t stopped listening to them since. I can’t exactly pinpoint what exactly I like about this band, but it’s a mixture of their Ramones style, punkish and goofy attitude, and the grunge feeling I get from listening to them.


7. She’s My New Song-Tres Mts


Tres Mts is an indie band with some high profile members. I won’t spoil the surprise, but I will let you enjoy one of their songs of their debut album ‘Three Mountains.” They mix blues and classic rock very, very well.


8. July-Youth Lagoon

(Download Here)

Youth Lagoon is the efforts of Trevor Powers, who just got signed to the indie label Fat Possum. This song is chilling but beautiful at the same time. If you’re interested, his debut album ‘The Year of Hibernation’ comes out on September 27th.


9. Early Thoughts on Final Days-King Charles 


This song is a little quirky, but the lyrics are what makes this song. If anything, it’s a feel-good , summer song.


10. Rave On-M. Ward

This song is M. Ward’s cover of Buddy Holly’s song, but, unlike many covers, this one lives up the greatness of the original. The music video is also the best video on this list. If you haven’t listened to M. Ward, I recommend that you do. He’s a great folk singer/songwriter.


That’s it for my list. As i said before, I hoped you liked at least one of the songs.

Please leave your feedback in the comment section, and don’t be shy to link a few of your favorite indie songs as well. The more great music I can get into my life, the better.
