Internet and Indie Rock

Here is a nice article about the role that the internet has played in the rise in sales and popularity of independent music. It runs in sync with the idea i have had for a while now that the internet is the new "cool older brother". One point made in the article is that listeners now can actually choose what they want to listen to, as opposed to only being able to choose from what radio and MTV played. So now we are going to have find even more obscure bands to make us feel cool. I mean Lightning Bolt was reviewed in Entertainment Weekly.
