Podcasts featuring new indie music - any recommendations?

I know that NPR's All Songs Considered is pretty good, anyone know of any other frequent podcasts that showcase the latest in indie music or in particular the British music scene??

Re: Podcasts featuring new indie music - any recommendations?

Aside from All Songs, the only other music podcast I listen to is The Bored-Again Christian, which I like a lot and have used to discover lots of new indie music. Don't dismiss it because of the title, if that's not your thing. While he does include Christian music, there's also plenty of secular songs, too. (Those kinda sorta have a spiritual theme.) I'd say go to his site and look at the playlists for several episodes and see if that floats your boat.


Sound Opinions has turned me on to new artists and songs, too. (via interviews, news, and record reviews)


And two podcasts that use a lot of indie songs as bumper music in between segments within episodes are Sklarbro Country and the Relevant Podcast:

I love the Sounds in My Head podcast - a great collection of music and he tosses in short comedy clips between some of the songs.
The Sounds in My Head

If you like NPR's All Songs Considered, you'll like KEXP's Music That Matters. KEXP is an NPR station out of Seattle, very nice mixes.

KEXP's Music That Matters

Both of the above are available through iTunes. And I also listen to Sound Opinions - great source of music news and the interview is usually good. I love their "classic album dissections".

Also, browse the iTunes podcast store. Tons of stuff out there. On the right choose audio podcasts, then the music category, then browse the "what's hot" category. And if you already know that you like a podcast, click on it anyway in iTunes and it will show you a "Listeners also subscribed to" list of podcasts.

^ I just did this for The Sounds in my Head and ran across this podcast:

NYUB - The UK Music Podcast - looks like a podcast of indie British music which is what you asked about. I haven't listened to it yet but will download a couple of them to give it a try.

GvsB does a monthly mix, if you just want the music.
