Thread: Gotye

  1. #1

    Default Gotye

    I had no idea who this guy was until the lineup came out, but this song is pretty legit. Hoping for a good crowd at an afternoon tent set.




    [EDIT: Kimbra re-joins Gotye on tour a few days before Coachella, so it would appear that we will all get to see this entire song performed live! http://www.songkick.com/artists/5392...lendar?page=3]

    Yes. He is going to be awesome, just discovered him the past couple days. I've had Somebody That I Used To Know and this other song stuck in my head:

    gotye is the golden boy of australian music at the moment. he won 6 ARIAS (australian grammys) this year so expect this crowd to be jammed full of aussies.

    I would definitely be interested in checking him out. I know nothing of him other than that massive single, but it seems like something I would enjoy. I need to do some more investigating.

    He's been around for a hot min...and is extremely good. Half of his songs are chilled out and spacey, imo his better tracks. The others are upbeat and a little overly earnest.

    best:







    High time they brought him.

    As a fellow Aussie & longtime Gotye fan I am stoked to see him on the lineup.
    He represents a lot that is great in music - he is humble, talented & independent. I saw him live last month and it was one of the best shows I have ever seen. He has been known to be a little inconsistent live , his worst is still good but his best is brilliant !
    Check him out...

    I can't get into any songs of his other than the single. Will probably skip him.

    All the songs I've heard are fantastic. I love that he kinds of sounds like Sting (esp. on Someone You Used to Know). Looking forward to the show!

    I'll probably check him out barring any major conflicts. I've only heard the one song and thought it was pretty good. One of my favorite things about Coachella is finding bands you ordinarily wouldn't give much thought too.

    The more music of his I listen to, the more I fall in love with him. Definitely excited to catch his set.

    So this is a pretty incredible mashup of that Gotye single and the Chemical Brothers' "Swoon." The Gotye track kicks in at the 2 minute mark...

    He would have the full 10-piece band at Coachella, right?

    He has said that often he can't take the full 10 piece overseas, he does have a core group of 3-4 who travel with him & play a lot of the material on crazy electronic instruments & gadgets ( as apposed to the more "traditional" instruments the full band use )
    When I saw him recently he performed "Thanks For Your Time" with the stripped back crew & it was really something to behold. I am excited either way. He has become more & more polished & the fact this is potentially a huge break into the US market for him means I'm confident he will be on top of his game.

    I'm getting more and more excited to see him; I hope he brings the entire band, because this is the cat's pajamas.
