    Default Feel-Good Song of Coachella 2015

    You know the song. Every year there's one song you discover by some band you weren't really familiar with until the lineup came out. It's upbeat, it's probably some form of indie rock. It makes you bounce a little while you listen to it. You can feel the sunshine. You can imagine the release that washes over you when you hit those Polo Fields. Even though it's hotter than fuck out, you haul your sweaty ass over to the Mojave or Gobi or Outdoor to catch their set. And while only a few minutes ago you were too beaten down by the lack of sleep you'd suffered in all the excitement, by the drinking and drugs you're blasted yourself with the night before, and by the oppressive heat--when this song hits none of it matters. You're at Coachella.
    Normally I start off this thread by instructing you all on what this year's song is and then you all submit a bunch of suggestions that are wrong, but this year I haven't had time to really do any research so the floor is yours. I will pick the winner when I hear it.

    This is my feel good coachella song. I can already imagine the nostalgia I will be in when the war on drugs is jamming the fuck out of this tune and I'm balls deep in coachella bliss.

    Not a new discovery, but I have a feeling St. Lucia will have one of the happiest and most feel good sets of the weekend. Hopefully right before sundown on the outdoor stage.

    Not new, but this will be the set I think you're describing, and possibly the song.

    Alabama Shakes don't work for this. I like them, but it's not a Coachella sound.

    This song, while not groundbreaking (even by Major Lazer standards) is catchy by itself. This might make for a good 1pm dance party.

    05.11 - Courtney Barnett @ The Roxy Theatre
    05.19 - San Fermin, Natalie Prass @ The Troubador
