View Full Version : Who are you most excited for on Sunday?

Maybe it's just me, but I feel like Sunday doesn't have a whole lot to look forward to. Sure, Dre and Snoop will probably put on a good show (not really my genre though), and girl talk is always fun (though I have a certain distaste for mashups), but there isn't any one band that I cannot miss.

The few acts I am looking forward to are: Real Estate, Metronomy, and a far 3rd and 4th would be Beirut and the Weeknd.

It could easily just be my lack of knowledge of most of the Sunday bands, anyone care to shed some light?

At the Drive In! That's gonna be a pretty intense set, I bet. If you like any kind of heavy music with guitars and/or songs that sound really emotional but are actually about abstract nonsense topics like switches on fences, you'll have a good go.
Thundercat should do something pretty respectable, and might be joined by Flying Lotus.
Modeselektor could go either way, but in the absence of quality bass music at Coachella this year, I'm looking to them for something interesting on Sunday.
But yeah, Sunday looks kind of like a come-down day after all the intensity Saturday...

I wanna like Wild Flag but I just can't get into it. Too peppy / makes me miss Sleater-Kinney. I would rather just listen to Carrie Brownstein riff on funny shit with her friends and say cute awkward things.

03-28-2012, 10:51 AM
Seun Kuti/Egypt 80 and Gotye so far. I'm still working my way through the Sunday bands, so I'm interested to see what other people recommend.

THE WEEKND

03-28-2012, 10:53 AM
I'll try to listen to At the Drive In, see if I can handle it haha. I've checked out Wild Flag before, and they're not bad, pretty catchy, could be a fun show.

Anybody have some Gotye songs to recommend (besides somebody I used to know)?

I was also listening to some Wild Beasts, and they aren't bad. Not fantastic, but could make for a decent early afternoon show.

Vic Viper
03-28-2012, 10:54 AM
weird, because sunday is by far the most loaded day for me. justice, dj shadow, modeselektor, the weeknd, nero, porter robinson, gotye, noisia, probably something else i'm forgetting.

03-28-2012, 10:55 AM
I didn't like Wild Beasts until my girlfriend was like "this guy kinda sounds like Antony" and then I listened to them with that in mind. The instrumentation and production on the newest album are awesome. Dude's voice is hard for me to take, but I'll keep trying. Maybe it will be an acquired taste. I don't know if I could handle a hot, early afternoon set of that, though.

And yeah, duh, the WEEKND. How could I leave that out? That might be the band I'm most excited to see this year, Radiohead fanboy-dom not withstanding

Araabmuzik is great in my car, but his live show left me kinda flat.
I was really excited to see him in Chicago, but he played for way too long. I have a pretty long attention span, but I can't get into a dude doing the same thing on an MPC for over an hour. Maybe a (shorter) Coach set will be more inspired...
And yeah, CoFlow might be pretty awesome, as long as they have him mic'd/mixed well and you can understand what he's saying. I'm a huge hip hop fan, but after going to over a ton of shows with dudes yelling into mics with all their friends on stage yelling along, I kinda gave up on live hip hop.

Sunday is the strangest day. I think you'll either want to see everything or nothing. For me, the Dre/Justice/The Weeknd/At the Drive In/DJ Shadow juggernaut is going to be brutal, and while I could miss him, I think Girl Talk will be an absolute party and I'd like to see him if nothing else conflicts. But if your tastes skew introspective or avant-garge, there are literally no names in the first four lines that would appeal to you. This is definitely a day that favors those who like hip-hop, electronic music, or music with an edge. I couldn't be more excited for Sunday, this could easily be my favorite day of Coachella ever, but I also feel like it will be a disappointing end to the weekend for many.

LetThereBeLight
03-28-2012, 02:03 PM
Santigold?
Glad I'm not alone. I am fucking STOKED for Santigold.


Anybody have some Gotye songs to recommend (besides somebody I used to know)?
I like "Thanks For Your Time", "Eyes Wide Open", and "Bronte" but I have not listened to an extensive amount of his music, just watched a few videos on youtube. His videos are awesome, though.


Other than those two, I'm also very excited for Florence + the Machine, Justice, the Hives and Band of Skulls.

so interesting & amusing how people's perceptions of the 3 days vary so wildly. I personally think Sun. is the most stacked day by far and that Fri. is the weakest. granted this is coming from someone who loves electronica, but...

Modeselektor!!!, Santigold!!, Justice, Porter Robinson, Metronomy, NERO, Calvin Harris, Girl Talk, At The Drive-In, DJ Shadow, The Weeknd, Wild Beasts, Gotye, The Hives, NOISIA, & of course Dre/Snoop are all acts I'd love to see. obviously way too many to catch in one day, but enough to where there'll probs be an act I'm wanting to see at any point during the day/night. i.e. stacked!!

Agreed...best latest two albums of any act on Sunday's bill save for possibly The Weeknd, though I fully expect Florence, Wild Flag, The Hives, DJ Shadow and a few others to probably be better live sets.

I think electronica is the key...this is the one day where the Sahara doesn't seem to have caved into the mainstream thriving Pacific Palisades private high school glo-stick set playing hooky, and is instead bringing in truly outstanding electronic acts all have come to expect (oh and I'm sorry, most of the Palisades/Malibu private high schools kids aren't playing hooky as most of their schools now honestly treat Coachella as an excused absence).

Surprised nobody mentioned Flux and Doctor P, not exactly sure what to expect but I think they are gonna kill it. Even though I'm not a big fan of Doctor P's productions, I really like FP's material as well as the few collab productions they have made.

Other than that I'm most excited for Modeselektor, Porter Robinson, and Justice. Beats Antique are cool too, especially on drugs.

Seen them live here in Phx, they were good and I was pretty much sober. I am sure they will bring the heat for Coachella, Flux is sick as fuck.

Dre & Snoop, Justice although i see an inevitable conflict
DJ Shadow & NOISA

I've got a feeling Snoop and Dre won't be conflicting with anything considered headliners. Sunday 2010 Gorillaz conflicted with Yann Tiersen (who's set was moved to an earlier slot anyway), Sunday 2011 Kanye conflicted with Axwell and the Presents, who were both on the fourth line, I believe. Not to mention She Wants Revenge, who I believe were actually billed lower than spicy pie.

Maybe a Modselektor or Santigold conflict?

Axwell was the highest billed Sahara act of that day. Angello was the highest billed Sahara act of Saturday 2011 and he went against Arcade Fire. Deadmau5 was the highest billed Sahara act of Friday 2010 and went against Jigga. All of this leads me to think it will be Dre vs. AVICII, which means the guys in our group will be camped out at the main stage, whereas the girls will all be getting silly in the Sahara.

First of all, if you check out my name I am a huge fan of Sunday's at Coachella. Second, I'm glad you appreciate Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg as well as Real Estate, but how are you not excited for:

Santigold / The Weeknd / Gardens & Villa / Wild Flag...among others.

Get in the game.

At The Drive-In, hands down. Snoop and Dr. Dre will be...an incredibly high experience. I just discovered First Aid Kit and am pretty stoked for some lady driven
60's folk revival. Justice for sure. I'm not sure what to expect from Greg Ginn at this point in his career, but as a lifelong, die hard Black Flag fan, I'm not gonna miss it. Girl Talk is gonna blow it up too.

I can't WAIT to see Beirut play. And if you like Beirut, stop by and watch Fanfarlo. Very similar sound. Real Estate is good too, I just got one of their albums. Listen to It's Real :) First Aid Kit and Dada Life also have my attention on Sunday. If you're still looking for a suggestion for Gotye... I currently love State of the Art and Save Me.
