May 4, 2016 - Nonagon Infinity Opens the Door

May 2016 marks the very last Album of the Month ever on Indie Dependent! And we have a huge one this month with King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard's super heavy, infinitely looping Nonagon Infinity, a garage/lo-fi/psychedelic rock album that you'll want to start again the second it ends. That, plus the new Radiohead single and plenty more!
