Pretty please!!! And if Modeselektor is there you gotta book Atoms for Peace so Thom Yorke can do his creepy/awesome little dance onstage with them during 'Shipwreck'. Definitely in my top 3 moments of Coachella '12. The crowd went nuts. Also, has anybody seen Modeselektor with the 3D glasses? All the people up front had them on and I was soooo curious what that was like.
I donno, I guess I can't see Bjork at a festival like Coachella...She's not headlining and I don't think she would come if she wasn't. Doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
I get that she was at Coachella 6 years ago, but a lot has happened during those 6 years - Good and/or bad.
To most music nerds her relevance is about the same now as it was in 2007, but to the average festival attendee in 2013? Her name and reputation doesn't hold much weight anymore. If she headlines Coachella next year, there will be a lot of blank faces in the crowd.
Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see her there - but as Womp said, it just doesn't make much sense.
This just makes me feel like Sasquatch is even more likely. Adam Snacks has a huge boner for Bjork and if he's booking Mumford and Sons as a headliner, that'll take care of the 'relevant in 2013' factor (read: gets radio play) and hopefully he'll throw us music nerds a bone with Bjork.

Goddamnit. I watch SNL and it takes me 45 seconds to find the remote and fast forward through Maroon 5's performance. Low and behold, I've had that shit (and I mean shit in the most literal sense) stuck in my head for the past several days. GET OUT OF MY HEAD, ya bastahds.
Microcastle is one of my favorite albums by a long shot and the jam at the end of Nothing Ever Happened was beyond words. My girlfriend who was indifferent to them at the time was freaking out after. Amazing show. Made better by our nameless, wonderful, Canadian friend we kept running into that weekend who would ask us every five minutes or so whether we wanted some vodka. I miss that dude.
Also, made better by that perfect sunset lightning storm. My face melted so hard during the transition from Helicopter into He Would Have Laughed.
Has anybody ever actually sat down and synced all four discs of Zaireeka? I have it but I've never found a group willing to do it. I have just the stereo mixdown but I've always wanted to do it for real.
I have the four discs; I'm gonna be 'that guy' for a minute and say that I bought one of the original 2500 copies that were released in 1997. The one and only time that I managed to successfully play Zaireeka, I was home alone and I went into the rooms of three of my roommates and borrowed their jamboxes. I spent forty-five minutes lying spread-eagle on the floor hitting the play button on each of them with both of my hands and both of my feet until I finally got it right.
If you've only ever heard the stereo mix of Zaireeka, you haven't really heard Zaireeka. Hearing ten billion Waynes say STUFFED ANIMAL BABY
[/i] at the same time in octophonic sound is the greatest moment in the life of any Lips fan.
We were going to do this when Burrito and Nadine were down for Animal Collective week and it is one of the few things we didn't get around to. Death Grips weekend, anyone?[/quote]
Even more motivation to say fuck it to finals and come to pdx! But I still think you should be the one to simultaneously start all the discs with your spread eagle methodology...
You guys need ta hear this Beck remix of Philip Glass if ya haven't already. Beck pulls out all of his coconuts on this one and manages to integrate every classic Glass element as well. I realize 21 minutes is a lot to ask of some, but this is quite possibly the best "remix" I have ever heard in my life. Even if you don't know Glass (Gramma), Beck makes this shit his own and will make you want to party with Glass all of the time.
If Gramma has seen Candyman, The Hours, The Truman Show, etc. then Gramma knows Glass. And if Gramma hasn't seen any one of those flicks, he should.
Also, I think Gramma would love all of Glass's weird operas. Einstein on the Beach and Satyagraha, specifically. And of course, The Low Symphony in which Glass pays homage to David Bowie and Brian Eno's "Berlin Trilogy".
