Retro-funky doesn’t even begin to describe Saint Motel. Their 2012 debut Voyeur and its exuberance was received extremely well by listeners in the indie-pop scene. More recent EP My Type has been earning them more clout as a hip 80’s pop-rock outfit. With a live set that is bound to keep you shimmying. Then there’s jazzy piano, horns, and sax thrown in for good measure, Saint Motel have got a certain zest about them that would be foolish to kick off Sunday without.

The Ghost of a Sabertooth Tiger, or The GOASTT, is a psych-rock project formed by Sean Ono Lennon (yes, that is exactly what you think it means) and Charlotte Kemp Muhl. While our elders had The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix, we have The GOASTT. A quintet on stage, they create a musical landscape that brings to mind the legends of old. Ripping guitar solos, intellectual lyricism, and mesmerizing psychedelic melodies are their mode of play.

 

Sean and Charlotte met upon the fields of Coachella in 2004, so expect this set to be special for all involved. Catch the magic with us Friday.

 

The GOASTT – Moth to a Flame

The GOASTT – Animals

The GOASTT – Long Gone

Some good things go away and never come back. Some good things go away and come back more powerful than before. I thought indie rock essentials Spoon were gone for good, until listening to a song a friend recommended recently. I recognized the voice, the unmistakable voice of Britt Daniel. Years after Spoon broke up, Daniel got together with Dan Boekner of Handsome Furs and Wolf Parade and made one good looking baby. That baby–Divine Fits–is really something beautiful and probably a force to be reckoned with live. If you look at the fine print of the Coachella ’13 lineup, you’ll see their name. That font should be bigger. It’s guaranteed to be an amazing show. Don’t miss them. You won’t regret it.

Check out some choonz and a video

I wanted to do my last CoachellAltDelight on something more critical. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I haven’t had the essential time just yet to put together my complete schedule for the weekend. One thing for sure, though, is who I start with on Friday. In a world where the number of DJs exceeds the number of white girls dressed up as Indians at Coachella almost ten fold, the Ed Banger Records crew has always led the pack. Showcasing talents like: Justice, SebastiAn, the late DJ Mehdi, Mr. Oizo and even Daft Punk; this isn’t a label to f*ck with. Check after the jump for more!

Radiohead didn’t make sense to me for the longest time. I knew they had a massive, devout following but didn’t know why. All I knew for sure was that they were a sensation live, and it was until then that I realized what they’re about. Been obsessed ever since. And I’ve come to terms with the fact that I could never put into words what exactly you’ll get from seeing Radiohead live. Their music isn’t enough to formulate an opinion around. The videos online don’t do it any justice. Everything comes together in a way that I’ve only seen them create. And that was four years ago! I can’t imagine what they’ve added to it. Pretty comparable to when I saw Muse live…Just different. Do NOT miss them on Day 2!!

Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover aka Troy from Community is set to hit the stage Saturday at Coachella. His skill as a writer is the back bone of his music, producing some witty metaphors and stupid fun raps. I wonder if anyone who watches Community will see him on stage and trip. I can only stand so much of him at a time but that amount of time is about the length of a performance; plus he’s a natural entertainer, so his live performance will probably be solid. I wouldn’t be mad if he incorporates some of his standup material.

Santa Barbara’s Gardens & Villa have their own brand of cool. Indie synth that feels like body surfing to another universe, their psychedelia is the kind of stuff you want to get lost in all summer. Their debut album came out last year, while they toured with breakout sensations Foster the People. These guys are going to be big, too. They’ve got their own thing going on and it would make for a really wacky/trippy live performance. Keep an eye out for them on Sunday if you wanna give your ears/dancing shoes a rest from all the electronic acts that dominate that day. They’re a guaranteed good time.

Gardens & Villa – Black Hills
Gardens & Villa – Neon Dove
Gardens & Villa – Orange Blossom
Gardens & Villa – Spacetime
