Coachella 2012: Spotify Playlists!

| Official Coachella 2012 Lineup! |

Update (6 April 2012):
Just think. In one short week you will be waking up, getting dressed, and wandering over to the Empire Polo Grounds for three non-stop days of music and whatever else strikes your fancy.

I have updated my Spotify playlists (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) after listening to tracks from each and every band on the lineup. I really narrowed it down to the bands that really caught my ears.

Some of the bands that I wasn't familiar with that caught my ears?

  • Yuck - A melodic, shoegazey, lo-fi band from the UK. Listen with your arms crossed to "Get Away."
  • Honeyhoney - Modern alt-country with a healthy twinge of Fleetwood Mac. Grab a glass of whiskey and listen to "Turn That Finger Around."
  • Wallpaper. - French-disco-funk-house-pop-music. Get up and dance to "I Got Soul, I'm So Wasted."
  • Destroyer - Dreamy'80s-Roxy-Music-Bowie. Get your 4am coked-out vibe with "Kaputt."
  • We Were Promised Jetpacks - If Two Door Cinema Club were more post-punk. Do your Ian Curtis dance to "Quiet Little Voices."
  • Keep Shelly In Athens - Dreamy female vocals? Big late-'80s-New-Order (or current-Cut-Copy) sort of beats? Got it. Here's "Fairytale."
  • Real Estate - Pitchfork darlings. But take from that what you will, it's still good jangly-guitar-indie-pop. Keep your hair over your eyes for "It's Real."
  • Housse de Racket - This French band were former session musicians for Air and Phoenix. So, you get the idea. If you like your Phoenix with a bit of French-house jam to "Chateau."
  • Sleeper Agent - Energetic alt-rock band from Kentucky. A bit of Cage The Elephant with a bit of The Strokes. Get drunk on domestic and rock out to "Get Burned."
There's a total of six hours of music. Enjoy. Get pumped. See you there!
