    Default Top 5 New Discoveries Since Lineup Was Released

    So, it's been about two weeks since the lineup was released, and I'm sure you're all deep into your research like myself. I've found over the years that there are bands that I've heard of, but never really given them an in depth listen too until they are on the Coachella lineup. My question is this... Which five bands have you gotten into the most, that you had never really listened to before, since the lineup was announced?

    My top 5 (so far) are...

    1) Broken Social Scene- Had always heard great things, but I never realized how strong they really are!! Love their stage presence as well. Forgiveness Rock Record is amazing.

    2) The National- Have always dug The Boxer and High Violet, but I had no idea how amazing they are live. The clips I've seen of them remind me of the energy Arcade Fire puts forth on stage. They are a must see for me.

    3) PJ Harvey- Yes, I admit it's embarrassing that I have never given Polly Jean a proper listen. Now that I have, I am digging her. Stories from the City is amazing. How is she live?

    4) Trentemoller- Worried about conflicts on Sunday with them. Have a bad feeling they will conflict with DFA 1979 or The National.

    5) Tame Impala- These guys are right up my alley. Spacey rock with an excellent rhythm section.

    I could name another 10 that I'm really digging, but let's hold it to 5 or so. Curious what you guys are enjoying so far as well.
    COACHELLA- 99, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12 (wk 1 & 2), 13 (wk 1 &2), 14 (wk 1 & 2)

    i'm having a hard time discovering anyone on this line-up that i'm really stoked about... a few new groups seem interesting at best, but nothing i'm willing to go out & purchase. still have a few more groups to look into, though...

    1) Francis and the Lights - They are by far my favorite of the "newly discovered bands" they have an energy that I really dig. They rock socks.

    2) Skrillex - I know he is a douche-bag but I am going to have to say I have been listening to a lot of his stuff. I am really digging his remixes and I like the collaboration's he does.

    3) Trampled by Turtles - This whole folk/country/indie thing is really grabbing me! Last year I was pretty excited for Deertick, The Avett Brothers, and Old Crow Medicine Show. This year Trampled by Turtles takes one of these spots.

    4) The Morning Benders - I had never heard of them before but I am more than excited to see them. They are really intriguing to me.

    5) Cold Cave - I feel like I am way late on them here. I love new wave and these guys are pretty awesome. I will be checking them out.

    Brandt Brauer Frick - they are by far my greatest discovery on the lineup. Acoustic minimal techno German trio that I think are going to be a great live show in the afternoon.

    1. Clare Maguire - holy crap she's amazing. The next Florence Welch.

    2. Glasser - the next Bjork? Sounds amazing. Similar to former Coachella discoveries Fever Ray, Lykke Li.

    3. Warpaint - sort of a continuation of a theme - ethereal female vocals with swirly guitars. Kind of like a combination of Ride and the Cocteau Twins.

    4. Cold Cave - Yet another small font band from Friday. Love their record and looking forward to their new one releasing right before the fest.

    5. Gayngs - love their record. Anything the Bon Iver guys do is solid gold.

    DFA 1979. Good stuff.

    Also have some Robyn that I need to listen to.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Joy Orbison - Always heard his name being tossed around but never gave him a listen - definitely one of my must-sees for the weekend.
    SBTRKT
    Brandt Brauer Frick - Very interesting group. Should be a good set
    TOKiMONSTA - Some of her stuff I'm not so into, but all in all I think she's worth checking out
    Alf Alpha/Beardyman- Yeah, that's six but I'm only 1/2 excited about these guys - should be fun though.
