Hi y’all, and welcome to another episode of Indie Thursday! This week’s indie favorites at the ZXZW office are:


mewithoutYou, their new record came out this week, it’s called It’s All Crazy! It’s All False! It’s All A Dream! It’s Alright. We love it; it’s very passionate.

Micachu is the 21 year old songwriter/producer Mica Levi. She studies composition at the Guildhall School of Music Drama in London. As well as writing more traditional pieces, she writes electronic pop songs, very contemporary, and pretty DIY. She even uses a vacuum machine as instrument!

Dirty Projectors, led by singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dave Longstreth. Their last album, Rise Above, was a covers record of 11 tracks of Black Flag’s Damaged, but without having listened to the record since childhood. The new album Bitte Orca is typically Dirty Projectors with weird vocals.


Magic Magic
, a band from Boston. They play indiepop full of reverb. Pretty laidback but great melodies. And the cover of the album is amazing.

Last but not least: Pterodactyl, a band of the great Jagjaguwar/Brah label. And The Golden Silvers, especially the song ‘True Romance’. It’s disco!

Do you have any other tips for us? Please comment!
