Listen to a Coachella Band right now: Part 2

Gang Gang Dance is too weird for my roommate. He prefers Fall Out Boy.


Fucked Up is too heavy for my roommate. He prefers Tori Amos.


The Horrors are punk. My roommate doesn't care for punk. at all.


Junior Boys are awesome. I'm not sure how my roommate feels about them, but he's probably wrong. I've attached the snowboard video that their song "in The Morning" appears in because that's how Ryan Kobane and I discovered the awesomeness of Junior Boys.


Bloody Beetroots. This video will not properly represent Bloody Beetroots, but OMG titties.

Listen to a... HOW THE FUCK HAVE I NOT HEARD THIS BEFORE?

Ladies and gentlemen, I submit for your Jersey Shore rockout, the Gaslight Anthem:

Listen to a Coachella Band right now: Part 1

This is a little out of step with my usual penchant for aggressive slow-core with electro-polyrhythms, but I like this song so i'm putting it up. It's by Dear & The Headlights (terrible) and it sounds like a lovesick Sparta.


This is a band i'm excited to see called A Place To Bury Strangers. It's like hypno-frantic shoe-gaze psych-space. yeah, i dig it.


This is N.A.S.A. and it's a DJ collective. I suppose that means they won't be performing this, but they'll probably do something relatively similar and it's a sick-ass video featuring the art of Shepard Fairey. win-win.


People Under The Stairs: I love this. Blends my love of Pharcyde and Tribe Called Quest style versework with ironic T-shirt wearing. Note the Zep shirt on Double K.


Apparently this band is too cool for embedded videos. And by apparently, i mean they're really cool. So click, you bastard: it's White Lies. "DEATH"
