I think this guy has a cool thing going.. he has a ton of quality music available on his website, both in high quality mp3 and alternatively WAV format.Â This is definitely the kind of “indie” that I’m in to – easy to listen to, not too pretentious, and no weird noises for the sake of noises (or some other unknown purpose).Â Here’s what his myspace has to say:
Ryan Smith’s music finds middle ground between the far reaches of the indie landscape and the familiarity of pop radio. MTV2 and ThePalestra.com have both recently produced video features about Smith. His latest album, I Just Want To Feel That Way, was called “the best six Paul Westerberg songs that Paul Westerberg neither wrote nor recorded” by Eric Broz of “Just Another Columbus Ohio Music Blog”.
