sasha's remix of come save me is amazing. The reason I know about this group now...yup. Maybe they should invite him on stage :0 j/k
Really hope they get a prime set time. Don't know if I'd prefer to see em in one of the tents or The Outdoor
I really like Howlin. But the lead vocals really leave something to be desired for in a majority of the videos that I've seen of their live stuff.
I was worried too until I saw them live. True, it isn't the best but when everything else is swirling around you it doesn't matter.
Bump because Coachella just posted this video by them.
They seem to love the desert about as much as the desert is going to love them

Just discovered them when I was doing my lineup research. Liked them so much -bought the cd-love it!
Honestly, just let them open for Outkast and have 60,000 people be turned on to how amazing of a band they are. Set of the weekend!!!!
Really hoping for late afternoon set.
Fuck. Friday is the most stacked day ever.
Loved their set. Way better than the first time I saw them (SF, Rickshaw Stop). Maybe the fact that I was watching the webcast from my desk, rather than in stifling heat dealing with the sound bleed from the Mojave and Outdoor might have played a factor. They sounded much more polished than in October last year.
On a computer at your desk, always the best way to enjoy live music. But, yeah, I liked their set, too.
Camera people kinda sucked. Lots of blurry frames, and I was sorta bummed that I was dancing harder in my living room than most of the people in that tent, but I could see they were genuinely stoked to be playing there. Strapping young lads, aren't they?
watched 3 second of it on youtube, because I don't want to spoil it for when I'm there next weekend (one of the acts I'm really looking forward to seeing) . needles to say, it was an awesome 3 seconds and I can't wait. only listened to their album once (the day it came out) and intentionally haven't listened to it to not "spoil" it so to speak. totally reminds me of early 90's UK scene which is what I saw in the 3 seconds as well..going to be insane!
Holy crap, fucking fantastic set. They set the Gobi on fiyah!
Gobi looked super packed for a Fri afternoon set too.
2013 = Coverchella
2011 = Perfectchella
I'm surprised shotglass75 hasn't logged in from the polo fields to post his review in this thread yet.
Not going to lie. It was kinda so good that I watched it twice.
Second best set of the day for me (#1 goes to Bryan Ferry). Their songs are unbelievably catchy and translated well live. And good to hang with TallChris and meet Rage Patton too (along with quite a few other boardies). My only complaint would be the over-use of reverb on the vocals. But other than that, was fantastic to finally see them.
This Will Destroy You| A Place To Bury Strangers| His Name Is Alive| Barry Manilow| Coachella| U2
Spot on sonny, the reverb on the vocal was distracting at times, but that didn't take away from what they did on stage. Second best set of the day behind The Knife.
