    Default Chet Faker

    Anybody else listening to Chet Faker? He's gaining some considerable attention down here in New Zealand/Australia, and wouldn't be surprised to see him to big things. Absolutely stunning debut EP. And even better cover of Blackstreet's "No Diggity"

    Heard a remix of MS MR he did on their soundcloud a month or two ago and started listening to him, definitely good stuff.

    Speaking of Australians, Chet Faker's new tune with Flume is pretty great.



    Really hope we get Flume in 2014

    ^^ Agreed. Either or both would be a pleasant addition.

    Flume is another one that needs to be on the 2014 bill. That Flume/Chet Faker EP is pretty good. Along with the Flume track Chet Faker featured on awhile back...

    The woman singing is a dear friend of mine. Her brothers are two of my best friends. Grew up with them and I've known her since she was 5 or 6. That's the only reason I knew about FF, but they are super good.

    Was really looking forward to this show at the Parish in Austin on 6/7, but I got an email today that the entire tour is canceled, refunds are being issued, and no news of rescheduled dates at this time. Anyone know what's up?

    One of the my most anticipated acts of day 1 at FYF. He has a great live sound. Not many people are doing what he's doing right now (well).
    THIS IS SOME REAL SHIT.

    These comments are all making me happy! Supposed to see him for the first time in October when he comes through NYC. If he was this amazing at FYF I'm hoping he's a shoo-in for Coachella.

    He was pretty great at FYF last summer, for those that actually made it in the arena to see him. They had the upper levels closed, and closed off the floor when it got too full, then a bunch of people rushed up to the upper levels and stood in front of the curtains trying to watch. Security freaked and tryed to kick everyone out and this is why the Arena got screwed for the rest of the day, (and I missed Caribou) because I left after his set and couldnt get back in.

    So depending on where they put him on the polo fields I would suggest going early if you wanna get close at his set.

    I got in 15 minutes early really easily, but can't believe how fast it filled up after that. He better be on the Outdoor.
