    Received today:

    Mark your calendars! The third annual Treasure Island Music Festival will take place on Saturday October 17 and Sunday October 18, 2009. Saturday will feature two stages of electronic and dance oriented acts and Sunday will feature a compelling line up of national and local indie rock artists.

    Full performer line-up and on-sale information will be announced early this summer... stay tuned!

    For up-to-the-minute information on Treasure Island Music Festival please visit www.treasureislandfestival.com.
    This looks to be almost exactly (maybe exactly exactly) what they sent out like a month ago.

    You act like that was the press release's main content. I think they just tacked that on at the end of the email about Noisepop events and Wanderlust just to keep the Treasure Island name in the average reader's mind.

    Right. I was (perhaps not obviously) wondering if this is something they already fully released, ie, only electronic/dance acts on Saturday. I have not been following TI very carefully this year because it seems like it's going to be underwhelming.

    I trust TI, will have an equally impressive lineup as last year, or better. Probably better...? More people are finding out about it. Has anyone checked out the lineup for ACL this year. It's pretty good.

    Cheers

    Last year had some great acts: Justice, TVOTR, Goldfrapp, CSS, Raconteurs, Spiritualized, Okkervil River, Fleet Foxes... Really wish I could have afforded it.

    I wonder if there will be any shared acts between Detour and Treasure Island. I

    You missed DJ Shadow>Gotan Project>Thievery Corporation in the middle of the bay for that? I don't get why people like Tycho. Everything I have heard sounds like a more repetitive Boards of Canada rip-off.

    First of all, I had recently seen DJ Shadow twice and the Thievery Corporation from like front row and I had to take money into consideration and the fact that my wife doesn't like any of those artists (all of whom she has been "forced" to see with me).

    I don't find Tycho to be repetitive at all, plus his live show is great. You should definitely check him out sometime, I can almost guarantee you will like his show.

    Ahh, understandable. Hmm... I'll give him another listen, but you are not denying it sounds like he is ripping off Boards of Canada?

    Me too. It made me regret missing their show at the Warfield, even more.

    Tycho's music is pretty and I don't really think that he sounds like BoC at all, but if you think so, there are certainly worse bands to sound like. Tycho's music goes really well with his graphics and the visuals at his shows. It kind of glorifies the 70s and early 80s in a non-barf inducing way.

    Really? At all? Listen to "Sunrise Projector" by Tycho, and then listen to "Sunshine Recorder" by Boards of Canada. If you don't hear any similarity, I must be going crazy. That's just off the top of my head. I am going to investigate this further, I may have written Tycho off too quickly.

    I dunno, I think that those song names are more similar than the songs themselves. The bass is different and more pervasive in the BoC song. Yes they both have random vocal samples, but I believe that they are sufficiently different.



    (I know that those song choices were just off the top of your head, but here they are anyway)

    This is my favorite Tycho song:

    I don't know if Grizzly Bear and Joanna Newsom can save what is looking like a shitastic Treasure Island line up.

    And...

    I hope there are some confirmations from that list soon, as it would actually help me a lot in deciding what to do for Sasquatch + Bonnaroo.. TI essentially has no conflicts so it would work out a lot of conflicts I have for those festivals.

    The one bad thing about no conflicts is avoiding acts you don't want to see.

    I agree to an extent. What I was trying to get at is hard to pin down. There are no exact "rip-off" moments, but an overall aesthetic similarity. Like Tycho listened to everything by Boards of Canada and Ulrich Schnauss and then combined their styles into something similar to both.

    Another example of how I came to this conclusion:





    Listen to the vocals in each. Sounds like the same voice. I maybe reaching, but it's what I hear.

    The great thing for me about your response was that it made me go back and listen to Tycho and now I'm enjoying it.

    If I were to take a stab, I would say a good deal of those confirmations are bogus.

    I mean it was posted by someone named Puddles...

    Also, isn't it a little early to even think about Detour. As recall we didn't get the line up until late July last year...

    All the good ones are probably bogus, but MSTRKRFT and Girl Talk will be true.

    A bunch of these will definitely be touring in the fall. Of course, that doesn't guarantee they will be at either fest.

    Tycho lists his influences as: Boards of Canada, Ulrich Schnauss, Manitoba, DJ Shadow, Zero 7 and Cinematic Orchestra. So, you are definitely onto something there.
