The Hives – Tick Tick Boom
[audio:http://www.controlaltdelight.com/Music/the%20hives/01%20Tick%20Tick%20Boom.mp3]

This post takes a time machine back to over a decade ago. If you were into the musically relevant in the 2000s, you remember the phase of the “The” bands. The Vines, The Strokes, The White Stripes, and The Hives, where the focus of this Coachella spotlight will be held! Well, if you remember that phase, you remember the sheer rawness of it all. All these grungy kids in their early 20s just pushing rock and roll revival in a fresh, new way.

The Hives – Walk Idiot Walk

The Hives – Outsmarted
[audio:http://www.controlaltdelight.com/Music/the%20hives/05%20Outsmarted.mp3]

I’ve always been big into how a band presents themselves, and The Hives were one of the bands that led the pack. Always wearing matching suits and rocking out as good as the best of ’em. I love this type of music for its energy. You can’t be sad in a crowd to this music. It pulls everything out of you and brings the crowd together in a very special way. I’m just as excited to see them as I am for rock and roll to cycle back into the spotlight. If it’s done right, it’s the best to see live. Do yourself a favor and see The Hives on Day 3 of Coachella.

Happy Sunday friends! Good to be back with the stench of Coachella becoming that much more pungent. Looks like everyone has pretty much got their goodie-boxes, judging by the hoard of mobile uploads and instagram photos people have been posting on FaceBook. We get it, bro. I haven’t opened mine yet…I just don’t want to think about it! Haha. It’s still not close enough. And if you’re NOT going, don’t fret. Goldenvoice put together a bunch of shows between the two weekends of Coachella artists. They’re calling it Localchella? I dunno. Click here to see that lineup. Until then, we got 4 more lists to go! Enjoy #86:

From what I have heard of Amon Tobin‘s ethereal productions, it’s safe to say that it will be unlike anything you’ve ever listened to. He likes to create sounds of instruments that “are not from this world.” There isn’t much order with his songs but it’s what he does with them that makes it captivating. So many unfamiliar sounds. So much bass! The one thing I know for sure about the dude is that his live show is next level shit. One of the most large-scale, innovative productions we’ll probably ever bear witness. Actually, at the rate of things nowadays, that could be a claim. Just watch the video. You’ll be able to decide right here and now if it’s something you want to be a part of. I for one am NOT going to miss this. Stream his 7th studio album ISAM below.

Damn. So much good stuff today. This calls for a new series! First thing’s first: woke up to FYF Fest and Goldenvoice dropping this massive LA concert lineup surrounding Coachella. Holy shit! It’s pretty much a dream come true, especially for people who didn’t want to or couldn’t get Coachella tickets. Watch out for the pre-sales and whatnot because a lot of those are going to sell out as soon as they go on sale. Hit the jump for more:

Hey guys! Sorry for holding off on those of you who were expecting the list on Sunday. I hate excuses almost more than anything, so I’ll spare you haha. Our monthly event with our collective friends called Jelly Filled Fridays went down for the second time, and it’s cool to be moving forward with it! A lot of people coming out are hearing new music, having fun, being exposed to our friends’ art, and meeting new people. Not much else we could ask for, so we’ll keep to it! Without further ado, here’s #85. Enjoy:

Nothing to say that hasn’t already been said about these guys. I love them and their style so much. I’ve been waiting for this song, which was originally a remix, for way too long. The breakdown isn’t as good as the remixed version, but it’s nice to finally have a completed song. I included the remix and a video I got of when they played it at HHM 2010 below. Here’s what they said:

Dubs for clubs Part.2: ‘Deeper’. This track has been in every club set we’ve played since back in 2009, when it originally started life as a remix for drum and bass legend TC, for his track “Deep”. We never finished the mix and ended up turning it into and original production a while back, and now we’ve decided to give it away for free, freshly finished off and brought up to date. Massive big ups to TC and Jon & Al (D-Style Records).

Props to Nate at ChemicalJump.com for pointing this out! Don’t know how we missed it.
