Indie Mash-ups: The Old, the New, the Borrowed, the Blue

The beauty of indie music is that the sphere of creative music is limitless. Indie is the realm of co-creation–where artist and technologically skilled fan can create something entirely new and undeniably original, benefiting both the artist and the fan. The indie sphere truly is interactive, which, I believe, has led to its growth and overwhelming acceptance by the diverse collective of those of us who consider ourselves Indie followers. Case in point: the following mash-up I recently found perusing Indie offerings.

How does the old marriage tradition go? Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, Something blue? Phoenix’s 1901 (the old) set to the rhythmic stylings of the Shins (the borrowed), producing a melancholic revision (something blue) of the original anthem that, in and of itself, is completely different, refreshing, and “something new”.

Download and enjoy.
