    Default Biggest discoveries this weekend

    I couldn't find a thread like this so forgive me if I am double posting...

    What are the biggest musical discoveries you guys made this weekend?

    Personally, I was walking around early Sunday afternoon and just happened to stop by the Sahara tent and caught Rusko... my first introduction to dubstep. Fucking awesome. I also didn't realize how amazing the Specials were until I saw them live, even though I had already known about them.

    Before Coachella I tought of all electronic music as a joke. After seeing Pretty Lights, Rusko , Mimosa , Bassnectar and Aeroplane I have a newfound respect. I also found out after partying Thom Yorke is probably the worst artist to listen to.

    With you on The Specials, they really kicked butt ! Loved hearing Rat Race, Much to Young, etc... Maybe they can get an English Beat reunion with Ranking Rodger some year too but i guess thats a different thread.

    For me Phoenix and LCD soundsytem were the biggest discoveries. I had downloaded a few songs by each before and thought they would be fun to check out, but didn't fully get or grasp them until I saw them. Sleigh Bells, Temper Trap also was surprised by, i had a song or two but didn't know what they looked like or would be like and had fun.

    I hadn't heard of Local Natives, Jets Overhead, and Florence and the Machine. I like their albums and they were great live.

    Also the Middle East and Charlotte Gainsbourg, didn't get to see them, but like their music.

    I missed all of those sets but they are pretty good...I'm really suprised Jets Overhead haven't made it yet, they have one of those indie sounds that could easily go mainstream...bet the local natives put on a great show but i was stuck at the damn airport!

    Kate Miller Heidke, holy shit. Did anyone else check them out? Her album sounded like electropop garbage to me but when she performed it was just her and an acoustic guitarist and she had an AMAZING voice (and was very cute).

    I still don't know the name of my newest discovery. All I remember is it was on a day that wasn't friday, in the afternoon at the outdoor stage and someone was playing a violin... I think. Maybe it was on Sunday. Anybody?

    I knew of Hot Chip already, but fell madly in love with them this weekend.

    Wow, she was absolutely epic. I have yet to listen to her record, but my god, this was the surprise of the fest for me and might be in my top 5 sets.
