What was true in 1986 to 1991 can also be true today. One may find a lot of similarities in one modern-day independent record label called SideOneDummy and the old Sub Pop label. Although based in Los Angeles, CA instead of Seattle, this small label’s roster of artists that include (and have included) Anti-Flag, Chuck Ragan, Flogging Molly, Fake Problems, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, the Dan Band, the Horrible Crowes, and the Gaslight Anthem, is proving that the spirit of indie labels is still alive and well. Side One Dummy hasn’t concentrated all of the efforts on bands local to them as Sub Pop did, but the menu of artists do heavily reside in the northeast U.S. Like Sub Pop with the “drop D tuning” philosophy, Side One Dummy’s artist lineup does seem to follow a common theme and/or formula. A little mix of punk, ska, acoustic and sometimes Irish bar bands gives this label a concrete target market. Make no mistake; this target market is the group of consumers that are screaming for change and a new rock boom in the music industry. It gives the public bands that are writing from the heart, such as the Gaslight Anthem and Chuck Ragan. It’s safe to assume that Dave Grohl would approve.
As major labels continue to sign bands that are on the Side One Dummy label, a domino effect could occur. Just like it did with Sub Pop and grunge. When record company “A” signs a band from Side One Dummy and makes a platinum record, then record company “B” is going to notice that and start looking at Side One Dummy artists because their train of thought is; “wow, these Side One Dummy guys are great talent scouts.” A musical movement can take off from there. Being that they already have bands on their label charting high with releases such as “American Slang” by the Gaslight Anthem and “Swagger” by Flogging Molly, it can only compound from there. It’s also important to note that the Gaslight Anthem are currently in the studio with Brendan O’Brien (most notably known for his work with Pearl Jam and Rage Against the Machine) to record their debut album on the Mercury label.

Swedish pop rock outfit The Sounds brought their infectious fusion of indie rock and electronica to a packed house at The Wiltern last Wednesday. Ever-energetic frontwoman Maja Ivarsson literally strutted her stuff in a short black dress and high heels, much to the delight of the males at the front of the house; her perfect-front woman repertoire included drinking beer between songs, smoking cigarettes during them, and crawling along the front of the stage on her hands and knees. She must get plenty of Red Bull.
Ivarsson maintained her energy throughout the whole 90 minute set, including during crowd favorites “Living In America” and “Painted By Numbers.” The rest of the performance was heavy on material culled from their latest long-player Something To Die For.
The night culminated with Maja inviting everyone on to the stage to join the band for the finalé, much to the shock of the venue security, with around 20 fans taking the opportunity to dance around aimlessly on stage for a few precious minutes, and take self portraits on their Blackberries and iPhones with Ivarsson.
