After actually listening to the album I retract everything I said. They don't really sound like any of those bands and they're on Jagjaguwar, not a major label. I kind of hope they end up at Sasquatch now.
I actually love Foxygen's new album. I'm not quite sure why I'm enjoying it so much, but I've been listening to it all day.
They sound like they grew up with a few Donavon records and loved Wes Anderson soundtracks. Which maybe would be a good place for inspiration, but they literally sound exactly like that and nothing more. As if they put both of those elements in a blender (along with a tender heart) and let their precious kid sister, who probably gives her shoes human names and actively converses with them on the bus ride to school, name the band.

I feel like Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds are going to be at Coachella based on their dates. I know that Sasquatch generally doesn't have the same highly booked acts as Sasquatch but I am curious where you guys think that they would be slotted at Coachella. Do you think they would do both festivals?

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, like Elvis Costello & Whatever Band He Currently Tours With That Isn't the Attractions, just wouldn't go over at Sasquatch. That's a headliner-caliber act, and Nick Cave ain't gonna move Sasquatch tickets based on that.
