indiepop by country?

Post by alongwaltz » Tue Oct 13, 2015 03:00

Say I was looking for indiepop bands from somewhere like Norway or Brazil. Any ideas on where I could easily find artists sorted by home country? Short of just typing "Denmark indiepop" into Google or searching the "Hong Kong" tag on Bandcamp and wading through for stuff that looks indiepop,

If anyone else was ever interested in something like this, I found http://rateyourmusic.com/ was a good resource. You can search by nation (which includes artists born there or who lived there at some point) as well as by genre (and they have lots of subgenre categories like twee pop, dream pop, shoegaze, bubblegum) and even narrow it further by format and year.

The genres some releases are tagged with are questionable of course but that's bound to be true of any website. Overall, Rate Your Music was a good starting point for me.
