Thread: my mixtape for Coachella 08

    Default my mixtape for Coachella 08

    so as it turns out i know dick about american indie, i looked at this lineup and thought two things, firstly that it was crap and secondly that i don't actually know who these people are! not one of my favourite bands are on there and the ones i do know aren't inspiring me very much so i decided over the last couple of days to go hunting for stuff i would like. i can honestly say i have now listened to 90% of the bands on this lineup and although i'll never be a huge fan of electronica, whiney acoustic or the hip hop side of things i have found a fair few bands that sounds like they are definitely not shit and worth some attention. my preliminary list of bands i want to see goes as follows and i made a mix tape of it all to share with anyone in a similar position to me.

    The following playlist can be found on the AJ Player at (top right of the homepage, click 'Coachella 08' to listen)

    The Verve - This Is Music
    The National - Mistaken For Strangers
    Manchester Orchestra - I Can Barely Breathe
    The Black Kids - I'm Not Gonna Teach...
    Enter Shikari - Jonny Sniper
    Les Savy Fay - The Equestrian
    Turbonegro - All My Friends Are Dead
    Holy Fuck - Royal Gregory
    The Breeders - Cannonball
    New York Pony Club - Ice Cream
    Metric - Soft Rock Star
    MGMT - Time To Pretend
    Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip - Thou Shalt Always Kill
    Hot Chip - Over & Over
    Battles - Atlas
    Pendulum - Granite
    Vampire Weekend - Boston
    Tegan & Sara - Nineteen
    Death Cab For Cutie - President Of What
    Rilo Kiley - My Slumbering Heart
    The Raconteurs - Steady As She Goes
    Pink Floyd - Time
    Islands - Rough Gem
    Stephen Malkmus - Baby C'Mon
    The Bees - Love In The Harbour
    I'm From Barcelona - Collection Of Stamps
    Spiritulized - Electricity
    Shout Out Louds - The Comeback
    Cold War Kids - Saint John
    Portishead - Glory Box

    so these are the bands i'm giving my attention to over the next few months, i really hope i'll get excited about seeing them!

    right now i'm pleasantly surprised by manc orchestra, metric, the national, shout out louds, les savy fav and vampire weekend.
    there are a few bands on there i already know well like riol kiley, nypc and most of the headliners but if anyone can recommend other artists i might like based on my findings above then i will gladly check them out.

    what about jack johnson's curious george soundtrack?

    i couldnt think of a more alternative album suited for coachella than the Curious George soundtrack.

    Great idea.

    Do you upload music to make a playlist or search off their server?

    i know the guy that runs it, we'll be wearing AJ t-shirts at coachella one day i'm sure if he has his way! so i upload to his server. i'm so glad people were enjoying this at work cos that's one of the main reasons i put it up there, i know how shit work can be and hopefully it'll mean people can think of happier times ahead!

    cheers guys i'll be listening to the bands again, might be able to make another if we get some more announcements and i can dig them!
