The Fkin Awesome Indie Artist Playlist #1

This blog post will be the first of many that I am dedicating to all of the amazing independent artists I listen to everyday, who deserve way more support than what they’re getting. These actual songs I am taking from my thesixtyone.com playlist. They range from Rock to Reggae to Folk, and in between. All AMAZINGLY talented artists.

Thesixtyone.com by the way, just updated their interface, and it’s much harder to use!…but still full of amazing artists..Enjoy!

4. Manchester Orchestra – Shake it out

5. Rebelution – Outta Control

6. Temple Scene – Ordinary People

7. House of Heroes – Code Name: The Raven

8. Valerna – My Moon Rocket

9. Still Time – 9 to 5

10. Kina Grannis – Strong Enough

All of these artists are amazing! and they deserve a lot more than to just end up in my playlist to stream for free.

Please, if you love these artists and their work, help support a site like Beat-Play, that will actually give these artists the support they need to continue to master their crafts, while you continue to enjoy their music for free. It’s a win-win. Join the movement!

Check back next week for a list of some more of the worlds best independent artists
