Music Reviews


On 'Hindsight,' DJ Matt carries the torch for true indie rock in its many forms: post-punk, shoegaze, dream pop, etc. While the music often sounds laidback, the best examples use careful layering and subtle references to explore fresh sonic territory. This year’s Top 10 list, featuring artists like True Primitives and Night Flowers, proves that a new generation is taking up the mission.
