I hadn't even thought about My Bloody Valentine as a possible headliner. They're definitely a band that's always slipped under my radar mostly due to not having any new material since I was 7 years old back in 1991. This new record of theirs is brilliant.
Yeah I'm digging it quite a bit. I'm holding out hope that they'll be on the lineup.
As far as shitliner is concerned, I think Mumford is the probable reality of that scenario. And there seems to be a contingent here that don't like 'em but can appreciate their live show, so if what they say is true, I wouldn't really consider their appearance the worst possible outcome.
I'm still amazed Pheonix are headlining Saturday night at Coachella by themselves. I knew they were popular but really...that popular?
As I understand it, The Avalanches album is done, in the can, good to go. The holdup is clearing samples.
That's what I have been hearing since 2007. Seriously, it's not done and it's never coming out.
Mumford and Sons (headliner) Neil Young (headliner) DeadMau5 (headliner) Sigur Ros (headliner) Primus Vampire Weekend The Yeah Yeah Yeahs The xx Imagine Dragons King Tuff MGMT Japandroids Waaves Black Rebel Motorcycle Club Grimes Beach House Youth Lagoon Flying Lotus/Captain Murphy (should count as one...right?) Titus Andronicus Earl Sweatshirt Father John Misty
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.
