100% Indie Dynamite

Nearly two hours of new and classic Indie Rock for your Fourth of July throw down. Starts with the here and now and ends up for the OGs who stay until the end of the party.

Levek

“I enjoy a good space jam while sorting through the Disney VHS collection,” reads the myspace bio. Levek—also known as David Levesque—enjoys a strange existence indeed. But the key word there is “enjoy.” By day, David drives a bus of elementary schoolers. By night, he crafts deeply poetic, folky tunes with tribal rhythmic schemes. I hesitate to use the word “tune,” for fear that it detracts from the legitimacy of his work, but the whimsy and touch of fiction that live within his music make it the only appropriate term.

Phone Home

It’s a real shortcoming of Hallmark as a company, that they don’t offer a “Post-Rock brings families together” greeting card. New York’s Phone Home is the second duo of brothers (the awesome Lymbyc Systym is the other) to channel potential angsty rivalry into beautiful musical alchemy

“Dwrcan” opens with a modest, sad-elephant shuffle bass & break then takes a turn toward a nice half-time glitch groove.
