"Indie pop? Folk rock? Americana? Geez, who cares?" I don't. And you shouldn't either. Just enjoy Scott Andrew's "American Thing" without worrying about the music genre.
Here is one (very funny) song out of many, many more which Jonathan Coulton has made available under a Creative Commons license. "Betty and Me" is a great, hilarious song. Pay close attention to the lyrics ;-)
If you like the songs, please consider buying one of Jonathan's CDs. He also has a nice campaign up currently:
This is sort of a protest - I will write and record one song a week and post it on Friday from now until someone starts paying me to do it. I guess technically then I will need to keep doing it, but you see what I’m saying. None of these are on a CD yet, so if you like them and you want more, please donate to me whatever you think is fair so I can keep doing them.
Another song from The Shades of Meaning, pretty cool, too.
Too tired for writing text. Just enjoy the song, ok?
