Kind of odd how there are no contemporary indie male solo artists who are any good


#81

Douglas Dare is very good. Looking forward to another album from him next year hopefully.

My two favourite chaps from this year are:

Sam Vance-Law and his debut album Homotopia. Mostly quite poppy and catchy like The Divine Comedy back in the 90s. Although he also has a couple of nice sad songs which are good too:

and Jonathan Bree and his new album, Sleepwalking, is pretty cool:

#83

Jimothy Lacoste


#84

#85

John Grant
Matt Elliott
Micah P. Hinson
Peter Broderick
Douglas Dare


#86

Not odd at all. In fact, I was sorely tempted to simply post “*have never been any”, but Beck and Sufjan Stevens gave me pause


#87

This thread: there’s no-one good

Dis users that think there is someone good: There’s someone good, and there’s this someone who is good too

This Thread: No they aren’t good


#88

I’ve accepted Douglas Dare.


#89

Yes! Saw him at green man and he was fab!
His sister, Heather Woods Broderick, is also fab but, alas, ineligible for this thread.


#90

Despite being ineligible for thread, i’m giving this a like as Heather Woods Broderick is fantastic!


#91

just came to the board to talk about the newish Damien Jurado album and this was the first thread available

Exceptional album!


#92

there was an enjoyable bit of “no not that kind of contemporary indie male solo artist” back at the beginning too i thought


#93

This could go in the 2018 bangers thread but is better served here.

There’s a wealth of decent indie male solo artists, and of course another vote for ya boi Mac DeMarco.


#94

The track of his used in that montage during Wild Wild Country was one of my moments of the year.


#95

He he…‘Ooooh if you’re going to bring up thooose kind of contemporary male indie artists!’


#96

I was kind of in agreement with ya

Then as I scrolled through the thread and shook off the morning cobwebs I realized how incorrect a statement this is.


#97

To clarify (again);

Artists that are new or have only just had any recognition.


#98

Updated list;
Julien Baker, Mitski, Tomberlin, Julia Holter, Kathryn Joseph, Kississippi, Haley Henderickx, Gia Margaret
vs
Meilyr Jones, Alex Cameron, Douglas Dare

I’d 8-3 be a fan of contemporary indie male solo artists right now!


#99

I’m surprised how many people see Mac DeMarco as a leading light of our time


#100

Women also killing it in the realm of slightly heavier music: King Woman, Miserable, Fvnerals, Emma Ruth Rundle, Lingua Ignota, Chelsea Wolfe
