This week on Indiecast, Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen delve into the world of mainstream rock and assess the state of major-label bands waving the flag for guitars in a pop-dominated world.In the "meat" portion of the episode, they review the recent album by the viral Italian band Måneskin (30:28), who make their (mostly) English language debut with Rush! Is this record enjoyably dumb or just plain dumb? They report, you decide! They also talk about the latest LP from White Reaper (44:09), Asking For A Ride, a lovable one-time indie act who made the transition to the big leagues without losing their sense of humor or ability to write a hearty arena-rock hook.In the banter segment (1:40), they talk about the latest news regarding Panic! At The Disco (they're breaking up) and Fall Out Boy (they're putting out a new album). They then transitioned to talking about a happier topic — the 20th anniversary of Zwan's Mary Star Of The Sea, a long lost classic worth revisiting (14:39).New episodes of Indiecast drop every Friday.

Today Mac DeMarco releases an album of instrumentals called Five Easy Hot Dogs. How good is it? Well, it's an instrumental album called Five Easy Hot Dogs — you do the math. At the very least, the record was a good excuse to talk about the career and legacy of one of modern indie's most influential artists (32:47). Steve Hyden is a fan though he considers himself more of a "liker" than a "lover" of his music. Ian Cohen, however, has been a vocal critic. What are Ian's beefs? Was Steve able to talk him into re-considering Mac?The opening banter segment covers two of the biggest indie album announcements of the week — Boygenius' The Record (12:28) and The National's First Two Pages of Frankenstein (:26). What's up with that weird National album cover? Why is the Boygenius album cover already meme-able? Eventually, Steve and Ian also get around to talking about the music.In Recommendation Corner (54:43), Ian stumps for an actual book! It's Status And Culture by W. David Marx, which explains how the titular subjects are shaped and formulated. As for me, I shouted out Mercy by octogenarian musical legend John Cale, which includes cameos by Weyes Blood, Animal Collective, and Sylvan Esso.New episodes of Indiecast drop every Friday.

The holidays are officially in the rearview mirror and 2023 is in full swing, which means it's time for a new year of fresh music. It's rare for musicians to drop projects so early in January, but Indiecast is looking forward to the year ahead with hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen naming their most anticipated indie albums of 2023 (33:05).To kick off this week's episode, Indiecast discusses the biggest music news of the week. The Coachella lineup dropped (7:15) and M83 gave us some major 2010's nostalgia by announcing their return (18:24). Plus, Big Thief revealed they're inviting teachers and students to attend sound checks on their upcoming tour, which is both earnest and probably pretty boring for middle schoolers (12:53).New episodes of Indiecast drop every Friday.

Now that the new year has kicked off and people on Twitter are voting for which trends are going to be "in" and "out" this year, Indiecast returns to share their predictions about the state of indie music in 2023 (28:53). Will Sky Ferreira finally release Masochism this year? Who is the next artist to work with Jack Antonoff?Of course, Steve and Ian had to start the episode off by recapping all the music news they missed over the holidays. Sorry to any listeners who thought “talk less about Matty Healy” was on their 2023 resolutions because a video of The 1975 singer hanging out with Phish's Trey Anastasio dominated social media a few weeks ago, so it of course needs to be discussed (:24). Some other noteworthy news items include Courtney Love talking sh*t about Kurt Cobain in a podcast interview (6:51), Bob Dylan admitting he's seen Metallica twice (8:09), and new music by Mac Demarco and The Hold Steady. (14:12)In this week's Recommendation Corner (1:03:32), Ian gives a shout out to Detroit band Fireworks, who just dropped the album Higher Lonely Power. Steve tells listeners to check out rising country star Zach Bryan's latest live album, titled All My Homies Hate Ticketmaster, which was recorded at Red Rocks in Colorado.New episodes of Indiecast drop every Friday.

Now that Indiecast has decided the most annoying music Twitter story and the most 2022 album of 2022, hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen get (a bit) more earnest about their favorite music of the year. This week's Indiecast episode as Steve and Ian name the five albums they think deserved more media attention in 2022 (hint: one of them had an entire Indiecast episode dedicated to it).This week's episode also includes a brief TVcast segment where Steve and Ian share their thoughts on The White Lotus' near-ubiquitous internet takeover (:25) and the state of prestige TV in general.

Last week kicked off the annual year-end Indiecasties, an Indiecast segment where hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen nominate the best, worst, and most memorable music moments of the year. Think of it as indie music's Grammys, but in an audio format and with fewer Machine Gun Kelly appearances. On this week's episode, Steven and Ian reflect on 2022 by diving deeper into this year's releases. Their categories include: The “Angular Guitar” Award for Overused Album Review Adjective of the Year (15:44), the Comeback of the Year (23:44), the Most Memory-Holed Album of 2022 (32:34), the Rookie of the Year (42:28), and, of course, MVP of the year (50:12).Along with continuing the 2022 Indiecasties, Steven and Ian answer some listener mailbag questions (7:59). A question about the Grammys voting process and the alphabet sparks a conspiracy theory.New episodes of Indiecast drop every Friday.

It's that time of the year again: December is here and publications (including Uproxx) have begun rolling out their picks for the best albums of the year. That means it's also time for another annual installment of the Indiecasties, an episode of Indiecast where hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen honor their favorite (and most overrated) albums of the year. This year's categories are: Most annoying Music Writer Twitter story (26:00), “Why Isn’t This On Your List” Award: Consensus Album That is Truly Overrated (35:11), The “Hey, I Actually Like The Album!” Award For Artist You Came To Like This Year (42:45), Biggest Disappointment (47:47), and Most 2022 Album of 2022 (55:57).To kick off the episode, Indiecast discusses the most talked-about event in music this week: Spotify Wrapped (:25). While Apple Music users feel particularly excluded, the ethics of Spotify also come into question. It's no secret that Spotify rips off artists but does scolding Spotify users help the cause in the long run?New episodes of Indiecast drop every Friday.

The holidays are here, meaning it's not only time to tune out holiday music in every store but it's also time to chill out, lay on your couch, and binge watch movies. This week on Indiecast, hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen share their recommendations for the best music documentaries to check out (or to put on in the background while decorating your Christmas tree). Plus, they look back on iconic record label The Elephant 6, which was a home for bands like Neutral Milk Hotel and The Olivia Tremor Control.In terms of banter this week, Indiecast talks Twitter's still-uncertain future and how difficult it would be to hash out trends if the platform shut down completely. They also imagine kind of music they'd play if they had a college radio show (hint: it'd be pretty similar to Indiecast).The Recommendation Corner this week has Ian shouting out Drowse's Wane Into It, which is a mix of slowcore-country combined with Mount Eerie. Steven shouts out Weyes Blood's latest album And In The Darkness Hearts Aglow.New episodes of Indiecast drop every Friday.

It's hard to decide which indie album released in 1997 was the best since there are so many great ones to choose from. There's Elliot Smith's Either/Or, Yo La Tengo’s I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One, and Built To Spill’s Perfect From Now On. But this week on Indiecast, hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen are looking back on 25 years of an album that meant a lot to both of them at the time: Modest Mouse's The Lonesome Crowded West (41:28). They reflect on that era of indie music and decide if Modest Mouse is underrated, overrated, or properly rated at this point.In terms of indie news this week, Indiecast would be remiss if they didn't discuss the Grammy nominations this week (2:51). Plus, Steven and Ian talk about the Taylor Swift/Tickemaster bungle (12:08) and give a thoughtful tribute to Low's Mimi Parker (26:43), who sadly passed away earlier this month.In this week's Recommendation Corner (52:47), Ian gives a shout out to Japanese emo band Injury Tape, whose debut album came out earlier this year. Meanwhile, Steven suggests listeners should check out Guma, whose album A List Of Sightings dropped in February and has been compared to Steely Dan and '70s soft rock.New episodes of Indiecast drop every Friday.

A lot's been going on in indie music lately. The 1975's Matty Healy — yes, we're talking about The 1975 again — has been pulling some very strange on stage antics involving raw meat (4:29), Bruce Springsteen dropped a soul covers album (:24), and last weeks' Indiecast prediction about When We Were Young Festival becoming the nostalgia festival blueprint came true with the nu metal-themed Sick New World fest (11:06). So on this week's Indiecast episode, hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen are forgoing the meat of the episode to talk indie news and dive into some mailbag questions from listeners, including questions about Muse's The 2nd Law (20:13), modern-day indie aesthetics (28:25), and the next indie comeback (37:17).In this week's Recommendation Corner (52:39), tells listeners to check out Smidley's new album Here Comes The Devil. It's the solo project from Foxing’s lead singer and leans more psych-rock/late-aughts indie than his 2017 debut. Meanwhile, Steven shouts out Gold Dust, the project of Massachusetts singer-songwriter Stephen Pierce, who references The Grateful Dead and My Bloody Valentine on his shoegaze-y project The Late Great Gold Dust.New episodes of Indiecast drop every Friday.

New York City in the early aughts became a hotbed for indie artists when bands like The Strokes, Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and more suddenly ignited a new era of indie rock. On this week's Indiecast episode, hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen revisit that nostalgia-inducing era by sharing their thoughts on the new Meet Me In The Bathroom documentary, which uncovers footage from the '00s NYC music scene (26:18). Plus, they review a new album by another early aughts band, Phoenix, who just dropped their first LP in five years, Alpha Zulu (49:23). When it comes to music news this week, the biggest story comes from... Taco Bell?

Plus, Indiecast talks Elon Musk's Twitter takeover and whether or not they'll decide to shell out $8 a month to keep their verification (:25). In this week's Recommendation Corner (59:51), Ian shouts out the Canadian band Arm’s Length and their new album Never Before Seen, Never Again Found, which hearkens back to peak 2013-era Tumblr.

To be considered "prolific" in the music world, an artist usually puts out an album every one or two years. But what about bands who routinely release several albums a year? On this week's Indiecast episode, hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen deep dive into King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard's wildly fruitful career (they've put out 23 albums since 2012, including five albums this year) (40:56). Plus, Indiecast shares their forecast for which bands will make the rounds on 2022 Albums Of The Year lists (20:56).In terms of music news this week, Taylor Swift's new album Midnights once again seemed to have the internet in a chokehold so Steven and Ian discuss how each Swift album cycle sparks the same debate about stans (3:32). Plus, Indiecast names bands they consider to be the Velvet Underground of this generation (10:16).This week's Recommendation Corner (54:09) has Ian telling listeners to check out Sam Prekop And John McEntire's recent album Sons Of, which is surprisingly melodic.

The UK rock scene is clearly alive and well since two of this week's buzziest albums come from bands across the pond. On the latest Indiecast episode, hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen share their thoughts on the much-hyped albums from two UK artists: Arctic Monkeys' The Car (28:42) and Dry Cleaning's Stumpwork (40:34).Because it's MLB playoffs this week, Steven and Ian bring back Sportscast with some obligatory baseball banter (:25). They talk the Padres and the legacy of San Diego's music scene. The city is not only Blink-182's hometown, but it's also known as the breeding ground for ska bands like Slightly Stoopid and Sublime.In this week's Recommendation Corner (49:56), Ian mentions the Philly band Knifeplay, whose new album Animal Drowning manages to pull off a a darker edge that’s missing in most modern sheogaze. Meanwhile, Steven shouts out Field Medic, who writes lo-fi Bob Dylan-inspired music that carry heavy subject matters on the new album Grow Your Hair Long If You're Wanting to See Something That You Can Change.New episodes of Indiecast drop every Friday.

Indiecast may have ceaseless banter about The 1975 and band leader Matty Healy's antics — Steven and Ian even dedicated an entire episode to it — but now that the band has released their latest album Being Funny In A Foreign Language, have they finally written a project that lives up to the hype? On this week's episode, Steven and Ian share their thoughts on The 1975's return (33:07) and the new, ultra-vulnerable album ILYSM by Wild Pink (46:22).If you're an indie fan who happened to be online at all this week, you'll know that the biggest indie news story came from Blink-182 (:24).

Some bands are sprinters; they release new material with impressive speed. But other bands are more like marathon runners, taking their time with each project. Canadian indie pop group Alvvays are the latter since their new album Blue Rev is their first in five years. In this week's Indiecast, hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen review marathoners Alvvays' latest release (25:27) as well as Björk's mushroom-inspired LP Fossora (36:42).The biggest music news of this week was a pleasantly surprising No. 1 single. It's Steve Lacey's R&B hit "Bad Habit," which dethroned Harry Styles' long-running "As It Was" No. 1 and it seems like a very organic ascent (45:58). In other news, indie music celebrated the 10th anniversary of a majorly influential album: Tame Impala's Lonerism. While the idea of celebrating album anniversaries is a relatively new phenomenon, it does encourage younger listeners to revisit classic albums in an age when we're constantly introduced to new music (:29).This week's Recommendation Corner (53:11) has Ian urging listeners to check out his recent interview with Will Sheff and his band Okkervil River's new album Nothing Special.

Earlier this year, a major pop culture prediction was made: 2022 is the year indie sleaze returns. Think smudged makeup, disco pants, an odd obsession with cheap beer, and, of course, Meet Me In The Bathroom-era indie rock. So, it's only right that the period's most respectable band, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, are also making their comeback. On this week's Indiecast episode, hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen review the band's comeback album Cool It Down (44:41). Plus, they share their thoughts on Wilco's absolutely massive box set (32:36) and plug Steven's just-released book, Long Road: Pearl Jam And The Soundtrack Of A Generation (20:06).The most talked-about music news story this week was fueled by Pitchfork's massive listicle where they rounded up the 250 best songs of the '90s (1:37).

Meanwhile, Steven tells listeners to check out 2nd Grade's new album, Easy Listening.New episodes of Indiecast drop every Friday.

It's fairly common to see rock artists lean into pop territory these days, but what about pop artists who are turning to punk? On this week's Indiecast episode, hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen discuss Mariah Carey's rumored grunge album, which has been kept a secret since it was recorded in 1995. Plus, they review Alex G's new album God Save The Animals (23:00), talk Pavement's buzzy reunion tour (40:43), and Smashing Pumpkins' upcoming, massive triple album (48:22).Of course, Indiecast also had some trends to hash out this week. Another music-related course was added to NYU's roster, this time about Lana Del Rey, which prompted a discussion on the importance (or lack thereof) of studying music journalism in college (1:11). The biggest music news story this week was from Drake, who got into a public argument with The Needle Drop's Anthony Fantano, which probably boosted the music critic's cred more than it hurt it (9:11).In the Recommendation Corner this week, Ian notes ISIS' Oceanic 20-year reissue. Meanwhile, Steven praises Elkhorn's new album Distances.New episodes of Indiecast drop every Friday. Listen to Episode 107 here or below and subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.

This summer's Indiecast episodes have leaned banter heavy thanks to a slow trickle of review-worthy indie albums. But this week, it seems like every indie band got together to give the people want they want: an all-meat Indiecast episode. On this week's episode, hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen review four albums: The Mars Volta's self-titled LP (17:43), Death Cab For Cutie's Asphalt Meadows (28:42), Whitney's Spark (40:41), and Young Jesus' Shepherd Head (51:44).In the Recommendation Corner (1:00:15) this week, Ian gave a shout out to Top Shelf Records.

There's something poetic about the fact Built To Spill and The Afghan Whigs dropped an album on the same day. The bands may have been diametrically opposed in the '90s, but because they peaked around the same time and have now become a staple for Gen X indie heads, the two groups oftentimes get put in the same category. On this week's Indiecast episode, hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen put both bands' legacy into perspective while discussing Built To Spill's When The Wind Forgets Your Name (18:39) and The Afghan Whigs' How Do You Burn? (36:57)The biggest music news of this week came from Harry Styles and the absolute chaos that is his new film, Don't Worry Darling (:55). The film's premiere saw cringey interview quotes, Florence Pugh being a wild card, and a (debunked) rumor that Styles spit on his co-star Chris Pine. Plus, a fan mailbag question had Steven and Ian finally addressing which one of them is guilty of having a squeaky chair (7:26).In this week's Recommendation Corner (52:39), Ian endorsed Phoenix band Holy Fawn, whose new album Dimensional Bleed is out today. Meanwhile, Steven shouted out Bitchin Bajas' new album Bajascillators, which sounds like Philip Glass meets the Grateful Dead. New episodes of Indiecast drop every Friday.

Following the recent trend of early aughts bands returning with new music, Muse are attempting to make a comeback with their ninth studio album, Will Of The People. On this week's Indiecast episode, hosts Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen question the band's current critical acclaim and compare the LP to some of their earlier hits (39:24). Plus, Indiecast revisits Queens Of The Stone Age's Songs For The Deaf (32:54) for its 20th anniversary and discusses the new album by Portland-based power pop artist Mo Troper (48:44).The biggest indie news of the week came in the form of an investigation into the past behavior of Arcade Fire's frontman (20:06). Recent misconduct allegations surfaced against Win Butler, clashing with the musician's pious image and begging the question: How will these allegations affect the band's current tour?

would be much better if the hosts actually played the music instead of just talking about it. even an excerpt! other music podcasts are better for that reason alone. I'd had high hopes for this one but it's unfortunately just incredibly boring.
