Bands That Hipsters Like, Vol. 1

DISCLAIMER: I am not specifically labeling any of these bands as "hipster bands," per sé – a label which might positively or negatively stigmatize them, depending on one's perspective. I am also not saying that all hipsters – whether they identify themselves as such or not – like all of these bands. But some degree of correlation can be drawn between the majority (if not all) of these bands and the so-called "hipster movement." That being said, I – who in no way, shape, or form could even remotely be deemed a hipster (not that there's anything wrong with them) – enjoyed "discovering" a lot of these bands throughout the course of my "research." Do I like bands that hipsters like? Yes, some of them, but not all. Then again, I enjoy music in just about every genre and style imaginable. So, my tastes can't really express anything definitive about the positive or negative aspects of "hipster music." Anyway, I've rambled on long enough. On with the music. Enjoy?  ~  JH''
