Multi-Love marks a departure from previous material with its disco rhythms and band-built synths, but builds upon rather than disregards the psychedelic sounds for which the American-Kiwi …

A music blog that doesn't trust the hype
Introduction
Indie is not a genre was started for a purpose: to not trust the hype. The name "Indie is not a genre" is more than a name, it's a statement. It's a statement to support independent and DIY artists against the common notion that all "indie" means is skinny jeans and electro-pop. Indie has become something of a landfill term for all kinds of bands because the major labels have realized that the label "indie" sells. Initially started in Germany in the summer of 2011, indie is not a genre soon grew into an international project. It now has 2 German writers, 2 British, 1 American and 1 Canadian who all bring their own taste and style to the blog. We have reviewed a variety of albums and shows such as Bloc Party, Villagers, and We Are Augustines to name a few of the bigger ones. We cover a broad area of musical styles, ranging from rock to electronica to folk to singer songwriter and even to punk - because: indie is not a genre.
