There are two reasons why I wanted to highlight a recent article from Seattle Met magazine. One is pure, selfish, hey, lookit me! Quoted in print. Yeah, yeah, whatever, you don't care about that.
More importantly than that little bit of vanity is the fact that the Kindiependent collective in Seattle, beyond the energy and coordination benefits it provides to its members, merely by existing provides another hook for someone to write about them. And the article itself goes a little deeper (or at least gives more details about the individual artists) than the typical "they make music for kids?!?" article. Worth a read if you're not familiar with the Seattle kindie scene (which really is awesome), or even if you are and think that your own area might merit similar coverage -- check it out here.
