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.

It’s a wonder to us how long it took for Germany’s Milky Chance to get picked up by US radio. Honestly though, we’re just glad they are finally getting the recognition. With a 2013 debut that hinted at a blend between The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, and The Shins, this duo has been repping all the things we love about indie-rock in stride. Their single ‘Stolen Dance’ was and continues to be remixed by pretty much every producer going the ‘chill’ route. We can’t argue with that since the original was a summer hit in its own right.

 

We’re thinking a Saturday Sunset Session at Outdoor Stage is definite. House right, look for the frisbee.

In the realm of female producers, Alison Wonderland holds her own as one of the more badass girls in the game. With a rather prolific career learnt from a background in classical, a coming of age in rock, a solo move to DJing in front of thousands, and an extremely anticipated vocal-featured LP on the way, she’s more than earned her place on this lineup.

 

Australia can already attest to her high-energy sets (we had major FOMO during the Wonderland Warehouse Project). But having seen her at a secret house party in LA, we can say that she puts a very exacting effort into keeping the room alive. And that was just a house party. Imagine the painstaking care she’s putting into her Coachella appearance. Suffice it to say, don’t be surprised when she blows your mind on Saturday. We’ll be right there with you.
