  • Indie rock is a genre of rock music, and a means of producing that music, that originated in the United Kingdom and the United States in the 1980s. It is rooted in earlier genres such as alternative rock, post-punk, and new wave.

  • By the mid-90s, the term "alternative music" had lost much of its original meaning as rock radio and record buyers embraced increasingly slick, commercialized, and highly marketed forms of the genre.

  • A ringtone or ring tone is the sound made by a telephone to indicate an incoming call or text message. Not literally a tone, the term is most often used today to refer to customizable sounds used on mobile phones.

  • A sound made by a mobile phone when an incoming call is received

  • (Ringtone (film)) Ringtone is a 2010 Malayalam film by Ajmal starring Suresh Gopi, Bala and debutant Megha Nair.

  • (Ringtone (song)) Internet Leaks is the third EP from "Weird Al" Yankovic. It was released digitally on August 25, 2009, although all of the songs were initially released as separate digital singles between October 2008 and August 2009.

Gimme Indie Rock 1

Gimme Indie Rock 1

Before alternative, before Nirvana, a distinct bunch of rough, young bands criss-crossed the country in rusty vans. They played in dingy clubs, slept on the floors of ardent fans, and rewrote the history of rock and roll. Gimmie Indie Rock Vol. 1 tells their story.
Husker Du, The Wipers, Pussy Galore, The Minutemen: these already legendary names in the annals of rock passed stealth-like beneath the commercial radar of the waning 80s. They, and others like them, built a new infrastructure of labels, agents and promoters supporting an alternative American rock economy; an underground network that would soon rise, occupying the big bad music industry for the better part of the 90s. Many of these artists are still making music without compromise today.
Gimme Indie Rock is the first CD series to document the contribution of this unique cast of guerrilla/entrepreneurs to the history of pop. Including many long out-of-print cuts along with a heap of the hits plus insightful liner notes from Scott Becker (Option magazine), Gimme Indie Rock Vol. 1 is a must-have historic collection.

Back when indie really meant indie and alternative really was alternative, a handful of brave labels changed the shape of music by releasing albums by bands that cruised far below the mainstream radar in broken-down vans. Leave it to K-Tel to cull the best of the indie brat pack for what turns out to be a fairly surprising and definitive collection. The stalwarts are here (though in their full indie regalia, you might not recognize their later incarnations): the Flaming Lips, Yo La Tengo, Dinosaur Jr., the Mekons, and the Fall. No collection would be complete without the triumvirate of indiehood--the Minutemen, Husker Du, and the Meat Puppets--and they are represented with well-chosen tracks (kudos for choosing Meat Puppets' "Swimming Pool"--pure skronk-rock torture). There's also a host of de rigueur circa-'85 scenesters: the Feelies, Galaxie 500, Spacemen 3, and the Wedding Present. But the surprises are what make this two-CD set worth the price of admission: Savage Republic's Middle Eastern-inspired noise, "Andelusia"; the Wipers' seminal protopop grunge on "Nothing Left to Lose"; the unrestrained weirdness of Death of Samantha's "Coca-Cola and Licorice"; Half Japanese's "U.S. Teens Are Spoiled Bums"; Big Dipper's "She's Fetching"; and, best of all, Squirrel Bait's peerless and visionary "Sun God." Granted, ex-college-radio geeks may bemoan the exclusion of their favorite obscurity (Unrest, Big Black, Minor Threat, and Scratch Acid come to mind), and surely space for a Replacements' track could have been made, but otherwise Gimme Indie Rock is a sterling collection, as good as any mix tape made in the mid-'80s. --Tod Nelson

Back Cover--Indie Rock Album: Jive White Boy

Back Cover--Indie Rock Album: Jive White Boy

First approached by Brian of Jive White Boy (don't let the name throw you) through my myspace page to illustrate his debut album, I held zero reservations as this has always been a dream of mine.

Part Eliott Smith, part Leonard Cohen, this local Portland singer songwriter's music is darkly folky, sweetly biting. A fan of Art Deco and Art Nouveau style, he felt my illustrations lended a classic yet slightly sinister quality to his indie rock musings.

The inspiration came from listening to his songs on repeat whilst sketching. The 1920s Jazz Age style image seemed an appropriate one and was also reminiscent of Brian himself. The CD should be available sometime this summer, hopefully in a wide release (or at least it may be purchased globally through the internet.

I am most proud to present the back cover song list (all fonts wrought completely by hand in the Art Nouveau style of the early 1900s and of my own alphabet, of course) as it has been long in the making. I can't wait to see it on the CD itself. A dream come true. Thank you so much, Jive White Boy.

indie rock late 00's scene {2008-present}

Indie rock was created to describe underground rock music originally, however the public would soon catch up! Thanks to The Beatles for their sophisticated melodies, memorable songs and very intelligent song writing they inspired an entire genre! Indie rock style is loosely based on what the beatles created. Like alternative, they weren't bound to what they could do or how they could sound but the only limit was to not venture into the rockaholic zones since they have been accepted by Old School rock'n'roll lovers. They have been around since post-punk rock and are still around, their fashion sense is rather random but at best they consider a style they could get a job with! Male Indie rockers are more metrosexual by appearance, Female Indie rockers are tom girlish. They never gained the widespread attention until now, by 2008 bands such as Plain White T's, Kings of Leon, Iron and Wine and even Vampire Weekend got spots on the radio. Some describe Indie rock as 'city rock' being they often perform in cities and city radios more often play their tunes. Figurably chicks dig this genre more than guys do but I guess there is a reason for that.

Lost in the Supermarket: An Indie Rock Cookbook

Historically, a love of cooking has been left to those considered far from cool: suburbanite Betty Crockers toiling over a hot stove. But the new youth-culture sensibility has taken over, merging the axiom ?You are what you eat” with its updated mantra ?You are who you listen to.” Lost in the Supermarket?yes, named for the 1979 hit by The Clash?is a creative compendium of recipes that reclaims the kitchen for the hip crowd. At once a meditation on the connection between food and music and a great culinary resource, this cookbook is full of the favorite recipes of some of indie rock’s elite. In chapters on both daily dishes and special event grub, contributions from such indie notables as Animal Collective, Black Dice, Sunset Rubdown, and Country Teasers are included, giving readers plenty to groove on, whether they’re in it for the tunes or the tastes or both.
