If you like Friendly Fires & Cut Copy, then you'll like Delphic

I love FF and CC but I couldn't get into Delphic. :/

At least on the first listen anyway.

Wow thanks for the comprehensive list.

Of course! I'm glad that someone's used it other than my friends and myself. I've updated it with the new posts. :)

I've started using Pandora to fill in the blanks.

why the fuck is everyone comparing z-trip to girl talk? sure they both do mash ups but z-trip is a great technical dj and girl talk mixes top 40.

if you like bassnectar, you'll like rusko (and vise versa)
if you like deadmau5, you'll like wolfgang gartner (but not vise versa)
if you like sia, you'll like charlotte gainsbourg
if you like jesus and mary chain, my bloody valentine, or the kills, then you'll like the ravonettes
if you like the flaming lips, you'll like yo la tengo
if you like the destruction of house music, you'll like david guetta

My Bloody Valentine & The Ravonettes....don't quite see the connection. The Kills? Yeah.

Possibly 2ManyDJs, it's a stretch because major lazer is very dancehall influenced but it's both good dance music that doesn't feature the Black Eyed Peas.

If you like Diplo you'll like Major Lazer (cheating?)
If you like the White Stripes you'll like Band of Skulls
If you like Girl Talk you'll like Pretty Lights
If you like real hip-hop you better check out B.o.B.
If you like drum machines and Don Henley guitars you'll like the XX
If you like surprisingly good and un-ironic Motown sung by a white guy in Nike SB's you'll love Mayer Hawthorne

Devin the Dude
02-28-2010, 01:32 PM
If you like Beirut, then you'll like The Middle East (pun intended)

1. If you like Madness, you'll like the Specials
2. If you like Bjork, you'll like Fever Ray
3. If you like Hot Chip, you'll like Whitest Boy Alive (and vice versa)
4. If you like Vampire Weekend, you'll like Ra Ra Riot (and vice versa)
5. If you like Mars Volta, but you're gay, you'll like Coheed & Cambria
5. If you like Franz Ferdinand, you'll like Phoenix
6. If you like Conan O'Brien, you'll like La Roux
7. If you like QOTSA, you'll like Them Crooked Vultures
8. If you like the movie Conan the Destroyer or RuPaul, you'll like Grace Jones

1. yeah, this is the one i agree with the most.
2. i'm offended! i like fever rays music, but her voice is nails on a chalkboard. i know björk is an aqcuired taste, but at least she's musically all over the place. fever ray is nice ambient stuff that puts me to sleep - in a good way.
3. not really. hot chip live is really different - not as good as recorded, but still fun.
4. i really like vampire weekend and i couldn't watch ra ra riot.
5. i like mars volta AND i'm gay. i could care less for coheed & cambria. but i'm glad their playing cos it's one less conflict i gotta worry about.
5. ff has an edge. phoenix is more electronic.
6. wtf?
7. qotsa is badass. tcv is kinda boring to me.
8. hilarious! i wish she was still playing!

If you like Frozen Lemonade, you might want to sneak in some clear tequila in a water bottle.

Great idea! I did the rum and coke thing last year. But they didn't give you the cap for your coke!? Lame. Tequilla and frozen lemonade...much better idea. :)

Yeah Beach Boys is sort of a stretch, but I guess my mind was putting those three in a blender while acquiring a taste for the Raveonettes. They seem to have a fuzzed out beach sound.

I was hoping to get some recommendations for each day based on some of the artists I am excited to see. I'm always hoping to experience new music at festivals and don't want to potentially miss anything (conflicts aside) you guys think I'd like. Thanks!

Friday: Grizzly Bear, Vampire Weekend, Yeasayer, Jay-Z, Wale
Saturday: Muse, MGMT, Dirty Projectors, The xx, Portugal. The Man
Sunday: Gorillaz, Thom Yorke, Phoenix, Spoon, Julian Casablancas, Kevin Devine

Can't wait, this will be my first Coachella =)

I'll fill in for the latin bands even if no one cares....

If you like Brazilian Girls you'll like Ceu
(did anybody get that? it's a joke for smart people)



If you like Gogol Bordello + Snoop Dog you'll like Calle 13

If you like Hot Chip or the White Lies or even AC/DC guitar riffs you'll like Babasonicos

If you like Phoenix you'll like Zoe

If you like Cafe Tacuba + Bajofondo you'll like Aterciopelados

If you like Air + Samba you'll love Ceu


And if you just ignore music just because it is in another language other than english then you're missing out big time.
