Editors' Notes “Indie” is one of those umbrella terms that better defines an ethos than a sound: music that pushes the envelope, plays with form, takes its tradition with a grain of salt. From open-arms guitar anthems to leftfield dance, intimate folk-rock to pop pastiche, here's an eclectic set of tracks that capture that indie spirit, whether made by its long-standing ambassadors or their modern-day acolytes. Our editors regularly refresh this playlist. If you like a song, add it to your library.
