Haters gonna hate, Indie Pong gonna pong

If you haven’t been on the internet recently my short deryk review is getting absolutely panned by the critics. Some people don’t like my (kind of) reviews but if you ask us they’re the perfect length. Put plain and simply: And that’s okay. As you’ll see below haters were showing no remorse in the Twitter

Confessions with Mates: I didn’t review the new indie music because I was busy listening to Lauv

I have another confession to make. I think I have a problem, I can’t stop listening to this Lauv song. I thought it was a phase but it’s been a year. I guess it’s not really that big of a problem. I mean I run an indie music blog so there’s that. And also this

Do I think they’re perfect? No,
