Welcome to WatchMeExplode!

This is my place on the internet to share indie pop, indie rock, and alternative music that I think is awesome. It’s totally self-indulgent and I love it.

Often, I will discover great new music on streaming platforms and simply share it with readers on this blog.

Sometimes artists submit music to me directly here: I can’t listen to everything and there is certainly no guarantee I will like everything I do listen to, but when I do like it, I’ll share that too!

Other times, when I am just head-over-heels in love with an artist’s music, I will learn everything I can about them and post a nice shiny in-depth profile about them so others can join me in my creepy infatuation.

And other times, I will write about the music industry from a musicians point of view, because I am one. 

Basically, I enjoy a certain kind of music — quirky stuff, oozing with personality, dynamic and fun, ( think of artists like The Shins, My Morning Jacket, The Flaming Lips, Dr. Dog, Gorillaz) — and I like to talk about that music with other people that enjoy the same stuff.

That’s what I do here. It’s great.
