Okay, here's my problem: I've listened to pretty much a CD by every band playing Saturday, seeing as all I hear on this board is that it's going to be "the best day." But, as I've been listening to a lot of these bands that I have seen highly praised by people on this board at some point or another, I don't really understand what's so great about them. Please, enlighten me, give me other CDs to listen to, other places to look, because I've heard good things about all these bands.
Turbonegro - Shocked at how normal this band was. Honestly, I think I could find hundreds of garage bands with the same sound and bad sense of humor.
Portishead - Found them repetitive, boring, and don't really want to go asleep at Coachella saturday night
Hot Chip - I have the feeling I'm going to get the most crap for this. I listened to The Warning, and just didn't think it had anything memorable. I've heard Made in the Dark is great.
Animal Collective - Seems like pure acid rock, not sure anything can convince me to like them
M.I.A. - Another one I really wanted to like, but Kala just seemed like someone trying to shove as many tribal and exotic beats as they can into a CD just for the sake of having them there.
Jamie T. - I hated, hated, hated this guy. I don't even know why I'm putting him in this post because I don't think I will ever be convinced to see him. Just 100% crap, the worst music I've heard in a long time.
