Stupid Art Kids

Well guys, not much of an article today, but I still got a track for you.

I just found out I neglected to mentioned one of my all time favorite genres, Indie Electronica. Now I know electronica isn't a word, and I hate using it, but thats just the new of the genre. For my own purposes, though, I'll call it Indie Electronic.

To explain this genre, take that crappy Indie rock, and add some badass synth action to it. And BAM! you got Indie Electronic. The genre is also tied into minimalism because quite frankly, it's basic. But that doesn't mean it's any less badass.

The main man is this genre is a popular one who goes by the name LCD Soundsystem. Any Daft Punk fans out there might know him from a song he wrote called "Daft Punk is Playing at My House." I was originally going to upload that track, but it's too mainstream. Instead I'll upload another song by him that's more "electronic."

To sum up this song, take a simple bassline, add some cool drums, and a singer who really sounds like he's high. Like seriously, this dude was definitely baked when he wrote this. Anyway, here's today's track...

Have fun children,

Are you kidding me? This stuff is amazing!
Can't say I was ever really into LCD Soundsystem before (Daft Punk Is Playing At My House offended me. Yeah.), but this song just blew me away. Thank you, like always.
