Every year it gets harder and harder to leave Indio as Coachella draws to a close. This year is even worse, because they’re doing it all over again this weekend! Even though I wish I was back, I’m just happy to have been a part of one of them. The countdown begins yet again for next year, and I have these amazing artists to help hold me off until then. Check them out after the jump:

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

I rarely get this excited over “buzzy” shit, but I’m all about Team Banks right now. She’s just the walking, spittin’, flowy little k-word that we need right now. What do you kids think? Over the top wannabe gangsta shit? Or a rough-n-tumble, not-giving a fuck, let’s see how many forties we can kill before its noon shit? I choose the latter. Day 2 of Coachella. You already know.

Noel and Liam Gallagher, frontmen of multiplatnum rock outfit Oasis, are some of the most musically gifted assholes out there. Oasis has really come to represent a generation for me. The clashing ruckus of the idleness of youth with the intensity of growing up, compressed into sweepingly beautiful rock melodies. Everything, aside from their notorious dick attitudes, was wondrously constructed. To this day, few bands are able to impart the degree of nostalgia associated with Oasis. What’s more, they’ve been cited as influence for many prominent musicians today, but really, their music is timeless.

Oasis-Don’t Look Back In Anger (Acoustic)

After Oasis split-up, Noel and Liam went off and started their own side-projects, Noel’s arguably gaining more attention. Of the two brothers, Noel tended to take the backstage more. This is evident in the lyrical construction of his self-titled debut, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. The album is refined but honest, generally recalling the glory and pitfalls of the rock and roll lifestyle. Yet it’s surprisingly unpretentious. It’s the kind of stuff that would make for a great live performance. He’s taking the stage at Coachella on Saturday. I wouldn’t recommend missing him.
