My favorite band on the line up. Can't wait to hear them in a tent!

Billed remarkably low, imo...

Wild Beasts were incredibly awesome at OSL'10. Super stoked to see these guys on the poster.

Billed waaay too low, but I'm just happy to see them on the poster.

Yes, like most of you, I was really surprised at how low these guys were booked, didn't expect a band of this caliber that down the list. Hopefully they play early enough in the day with the weaker lower bill artists of that day, and not clashing with the better top billed artists.

It's a crying shame that this band get very little recognition in the States. I can't be picky, though. I'm just happy that they're going to be at Coachella. If they play "Reach a Bit Further," I'll be a happy man.

Not familiar with this band, but I have to admit that this song bored the hell out of me.

This may be a better song to listen to as an introduction:

Thanks, I have heard this song before, but didn't know who it was. I like it.

I'm relieved that they are billed so low. If they play between 1pm and 4pm, there's one less conflict!

I'm not going to be as pompous as to proclaim that this is the best act of the entire lineup, but they are certainly my favorite.

Got into them because I saw on the lineup, great stuff!

Edit: Just keep growing on me. Not sure how I slept on them before.

Do these guys kind of sound like Editors?

Not at all, I would say, particularly being that Hayden Thorpe's falsetto is the polar opposite of Tom Smith's baritone. Tom Fleming does sing in a baritone, but his is not as powerful as Tom Smith's (whose is?!), and he carries only about a third of lead signing duties in the band.

The beauty of this band is that it's very tough to find comparables, especially in regards to their first album, Limbo. Panto., and its flamboyant cabaret style. If forced to make a comparison, I'd say something of a melange of The Antlers and Foals, can't think of a better comparison off the top of my head.

As for Editors, the closest thing to them that I've heard recently is Twilight Sad's brand new album.

I don't think it's gonna happen, but they should play during a sunset....

Sometimes they remind me of Elbow. I can't think why exactly.

The difference between Wild Beasts and Elbow is that Elbow is boring as all fuck.

If Elbow were only slightly dumber, they would be called Coldplay.
