Tasty Indie Goodness, Introducing Montmorency Records! New Production Music – 9/30/11

The musical term “Indie” has gone through a transformation over the years. What was once short for Independent, unsigned or signed to a label not under the umbrella of a major label, is now more of a genre regardless of label status. You no longer need the Matador or Sub Pop badge of cool to be officially Indie like you did in the 1980′s – 1990′s. Now you just need skinny jeans, a molester mustache, geeky glasses and a PBR in your hand. Zing!
 
All kidding aside, the Indie Rock scene has contributed some of the most inventive and compelling music within the last few decades. Freedom from Major Label restrictions paved the way for a more open artistic expression and room for experimentation. One of the newest additions to the 5 Alarm family comes to us from the Justement Music LibraryMontmorency Records. Each release features a different Indie Rock band with a unique sound and flair. Be the first on the block to discover a cool new band!
 
Great songs and nothing but great songs, nothing else matters! Boolfight seems to have caught onto that notion early on. These emotive and edgy indie rock songs turn up the energy with dynamic grace. They seem like the kind of band that has the ability turn up to 11 on every song but the musical smarts to save it for when you least expect it. Boolfight’s sophomore release Multiple Devils lives up to its bad-boy title with an underlying deviance combined with a depth and complex texture that can only come from an honest place. That inner struggle comes through on each song and celebrates the beauty of human contradiction.
