Modest Mouse joined Big Boi at Stankonia studios back in 2011 to record three songs. “I’ve been asking [lead singer] Isaac Brock] when they gonna do it, man. We’ve got these songs they’ve been sitting on forever. I saw him a couple months ago and they’re working on some additions to what we did. I don’t know. It’s a crazy camp over there. It’s coming. Talk to him! He’s the boss.”
1. OutKast 2. The National 3. Cut Copy 4. Queens of the Stone Age 5. Chance the Rapper 6. M.I.A. 7. Violent Femmes 8. Foals 9. Phosphorescent 10. Rudimental
I didn't see Cut Copy, Phosphorescent, or Rudimental.
These artists were my top 10 most played Sasquatch artists in the 6 months before the festival: 1. OutKast 2. Queens of the Stone Age 3. The National 4. Portugal. The Man 5. Elbow 6. HAIM 7. M.I.A. 8. Chance the Rapper 9. De La Soul 10. Waxahatchee
I didn't see HAIM (but I will at MFNW later this summer), and I only saw one song of Waxahatchee's set.
If you've made it this far, here's my top 10 sets from Sasquatch! 2014: 1. OutKast 2. Portugal. The Man 3. Queens of the Stone Age 4. The National 5. Violent Femmes 6. De La Soul 7. Elbow 8. M.I.A. 9. Hannibal Burress 10. Chance the Rapper
3-7 were very close for me. I had an absolute blast at all 5 of those sets.
Honorable mentions: Neko Case, Phantogram, Rodriguez, and Goldbeard for complimenting my shirt on the way into the festival on Friday. I thought he looked familiar, but I didn't realize until later that I recognized him from this board.
Sorry, but I have really fallen behind in updating the first post over the last month. I think I've updated it to include every officially announced album with a release date. I also added these albums:
Andrew Bird- Things Are Really Great Here, Sort Of..., June 3
Bob Mould- Beauty & Ruin, June 3. Stream @ Pitchfork https%3A//soundcloud.com/mergerecords/bob-mould-hey-mr-grey/s-5GY8D https%3A//soundcloud.com/mergerecords/bob-mould-i-dont-know-you-anymore-vocals-up-single-version
My thought was that they got skipped b/c the festival and/or Phantogram didnt want to push back their hyped (and godawful) evening set. regardless, it was a huge disappointment and a terrible way to start the weekend.
I've been curious about Rudimental. I had planned on splitting them and Outkast. Worth it or no?
I have a theory that they'll be playing a DJ set instead of their live show. Theory's based on the fact that the past three years there's been a DJ set going on inside of the tent during the top-billed act of the festival: 2011: Foo Fighters - DJ Anjali 2012: Bon Iver - James Murphy 2013: Mumford - Azari & III (Who are usually a full live band)
Also, Rudimental plays DJ sets all over the world at several festivals, so I wouldn't put it past them. Plus, on a lot of bills I've seen they are listed as Rudimental LIVE for their live show.
I'm over-thinking this, I know. But just divulging because I can't stand the excitement..
Jack White and Beck were both billed higher than Bon Iver in 2012. So maybe you're not over-thinking this.
