Every year we make some Coachella playlists. Because we never get to go. We used to go back in the day. But now that it’s such a fiasco we abstain from attending.
Below are playlists fill with tunes from this year’s acts. At the bottom of this post are links to previous years. I also left some quick comments on bands/artists that I felt are worthy of extra attention.
Here they are for 2014:
Chromeo – 80 synth and stimulants. High pitch voices. Party time.
Martin Garrix – Typical electro-cliche stuff. If you like that, you’ll love this.
The Cult – I would watched them. I’m sure they’re old now. But the weird Gothic glam rock mix was always a winner.
Flume & Chet Faker – Interesting. You have my attention. Peep it.
Aloe Blacc – A living legend. Witness him while you’re alive.
Jagwar Ma – Interesting. Another attention taker. Will research more. You do the same.
Goat – I like it. Worldly.
Anti-Flag – The last of the punk rockers? They actually have something important to say. Listen to them.
Caravan Palance – Holy shitballs. Creativity. Danceable. Fun. Finally. Check it out.
The Bots – F*ck yes. All up in the artz district in shit yo.
Pet Shop Boys – If you like house or EDM…these guys helped build the foundation for you. Pay respect. And man. If you lived in the 80s or 90s and were a fan of them, you got a LOT OF SHIT for it.
Fat Boy Slim – Coachella act of yesteryear.
Capital Cities – Is like Chromeo of the East Coast?
Temples – Weird. These guys are going 60s. But I’m definitely in the mood for it.
Mogwai – This is some serious shit. Mad respect.
Tiga – Weird. I like it.
Graveyard – They looks like some high desert speed dealers. They play like they just got in the game are having the time of their lives.
Holy Ghost – Superbly 80s. Synths and old age.
Beck – Another living legend. Usually a great live performer.
Disclosure – I think everyone likes this group.
Toy Dolls – Early fun punk.
Chance the Rapper – An anomaly. Witness him.
Zoe’ – They sing in Spanish. It sounds beautiful.
Fishbone – AH HA! Now we’re talking! Ska weirdness from the 80s. Nothing like them on earth. F*ck yes.
Bombino – Groovy.
Blood Orange – Looks like there is some talent here.
Poolside – Super synthy with late 70s bass. Like analog synths. The name says it all.
Bo Ningen – Do it for the sound. You gotta experience it.
Preservation Hall Band – Here’s something old yet different. Pure entertainment.
