Japandroids Kendrick Lamar Macklemore Tame Impala Grimes Death Grips This Will Destroy You Titus Andronicus Lumineers Great Lake Swimmers The Men DIIV (confirmed) Disclosure (confirmed) the Knife Knife Party Four Tet Sinkane School of Seven Bells Azalea Banks Jeff the Brotherhood King Tuff
In terms of hip hop, which has been slightly underrepresented in this thread, I'd say any and all of these would be fantastic, and a nice alternative to, say, Macklemore.
Shabazz Palaces - Squatch veterans, possibly dropping a new record this year...I attribute the low turnout to their 2012 set to bad scheduling (against Feist and Shearwater). They killed it though.
Death Grips - not much more needs to be said other than SPREADEAGLECROSSTHEBLOCK. One of the best live acts currently active.
Cities Aviv - one of the most innovative rappers out right now (ok i'll cool it with the superlatives), he's got that indie cred and toured with Death Grips. bangin live show.
Flying Lotus/Captain Murphy - both Until the Quiet Comes and Duality were fantastic, and generally well-received critically. instrumental set? rap set? both? please.
Earl Sweatshirt - seems as though he'd fit the vibe, would draw a pretty sizeable crowd. probably would need to drop more material in the meantime though
Heems - DR had a great set last time they played Squatch, and although now broken up, Heems is still is making the circuit...I'd imagine that he'd light it up.
Schoolboy Q - Fun, popular, slightly obnoxious...it'd be a party.
Aesop Rock - was gonna throw him in the less realistic category, but he lives on the West Coast now...an underground vet, and still making excellent albums. Could even pair him with Kimya Dawson. Personally, this would probably cause my brain to implode.
Less realistic: Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown, El-p, Killer Mike, Joey Bada$$/Pro Era crew, Action Bronson, Big K.R.I.T.
Even less so: Beastie Boys return with hologram MCA
I've found lately that I'm totally bored of rap music. The only rap I listen to is the stuff I know by heart, and I don't have the patience to learn anything new by heart. I feel sort of bad and that I'm missing out on a lot of good shit, I just don't like it anymore.
Better yet, let's hope the rumblings are correct and the new Madvillain LP drops this year. Then we can get twice the disappointment!!!
Kinda sucks about your rap-life crisis there, drew. Maybe you're just waiting for that right artist to come along and sweep you off your feet? Or perhaps going cold turkey on all hop for a couple months/years would rekindle your passion.
