Episode details

We're joined by our friend Ben to discuss the shifting terrain in indie music from 2000—present. We cover the impact of the Bush, Obama, and Trump presidencies, the particularities of the indie sound as the genre developed and mutated, cultural stagnation post-2010—and we ask, what has changed in the last decade?

A sequel of sorts to our conversation about Radiohead’s Kid A, available here.
