Tags: Future Perfect Radio, Indie Of The Year, IOTY09

Welcome to a special edition of Music Emissions Podcast of the week. With Indie Of The Year registration ending in a few days, I thought a spin for some of my favorites in this year’s contest was imperative.

1. Experience.Hold.

Absolutely my favorite band in IOTY, Philly’s very own Experienced.Hold. is in their second year of participating. Having not caught my full attention in 2007, I am enamoured with instinct to bury myself in this instrumental mincing of R&B and Post Modern Rock. Here is Experience.Hold. with “Everything At Once”.

2. Laurier Tiernan

Pop/Punk Prosaists Laurier Tiernan may be hailing from Japan right now, but their blend has certainly grabbed the attention of our users. Here’s the very melodic “End Of The World”.

3. (freddie) Sipo

After my initial review of Sipo, I was left wanting to hear it again, and so on and so forth. Here I am six months later still insistent Freddie is also one of Indie music’s best kept secrets. Here is “White Light” off his latest release “Year Of The White Rose”.

4. Where The Land Meets The Sea

Another Massachusetts artist, Where The Land Meets The Sea has more of that progressive pop rock sound. Here is their fan favorite “Tiny Maps” off their latest release Listen For The Gulls.

5. June’s Not Faking

Call me a homer, but I don’t favor a single NY band. BUT, June’s Not Faking is currently breaking clouds in Texas. Though not many Pop/Punk flavored talent comes from San Antonio Texas, these guys seem to have a little more than your everyday radio sound. Off their independent release “Not Planning to Leave…Planning to Escape”, here is “Something More”
