When you look at the family tree of music, it’s a wonder all the cross-breeding doesn’t dilute the gene pool. Yet when someone from one band hooks up with someone from another, sometimes lightning strikes. So too, sometimes you just need to spread your wings for a little solo action. In this Indie-ish edition, we’ve collected some of the best supergroups, solo efforts, and side projects including Tired Pony (Snow Patrol, Belle & Sebastian), Brad (Stone Gossard of Pearl Jam), Broken Bells (Danger Mouse, The Shins) and more. Working your way through this playlists will also make you the music expert on trivia night too. Listen to music and get smart!
