Link and Mario Go to Coachella Indie rock was one of the biggest genres of the early 2000s. This episode looks at some of the more notable instances of video game music influencing the indie sound, with stories of Super Mario, Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy infiltrating the work of artists such as Owen Pallett, Boom Bip, Fleet Foxes and The Mountain Goats. All this plus a stern warning against going to Coachella if you haven’t been already.
