sub sonic

i thought sub pop wasnt happening after the mid nineties but theyve released alot of good stuff lately which i would label alt.folk. i see theyve called some of it urban folk. maybe its a little bit dream pop too. whatever it is, i like it, especially Fruit Bats, The Shins, Iron and Wine, the Baptist Generals, Beachwood Sparks and Holopaw. Ugly Cassanova an offshoot from Modest Mouse are more straightforward janglepop while Postal Service mix in 80s lofi keyboards with their indiepop but theyre also a pretty good listen. this link heads to a list of the bands but each individual page has at least one mp3 on it. i going to see Fruit Bats and Holopaw at The Mercury Lounge on Sunday if anyone is interested.
