So, I was recently telling a friend about how I am going to Coachella because this was simply a year not to be missed. Somehow, when she asked who was playing, I was tongue-tied. I forgot who was headlining, and of all the bands I am excited to see, I couldn't discern which she might even know about.
I'm over the moon to be able to see At The Drive-In. I'm ridiculously excited to see Black Keys. No matter how much attention they get, and how overplayed they might become, their music makes me happy. I stomp my feet and sing along. The AWOLNATION album is also a good one that doesn't get old. Gotye, even though I'm a brand new fan who knows like one song, is a great addition to the lineup. I'm excited to see Arctic Monkeys, Yuck, Other Lives, Dear Hunter, Radiohead, Bon Iver, Shins, Noel Gallagher, longtime favorites Manchester Orchestra, Kaiser Chiefs, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Girl Talk, Santigold...
To catch up on this band, I listened to 2010's In Love With Dusk and the 2011 EP Our Own Dream. By the way, both have only six tracks. The earlier set was very slow and earthy, while Dream at least produces a few moments that could be weaved into a set with a beat to move some part of your body to. Like track 5, "Fairytale."

But here is a song that interested me... The duo recorded a cover of "Just Like Honey" for the Just Like Honey podcast's fundraiser last month. I may have to save some boobies and buy that album, to hear the rest of the bands that covered this track.
