Last weekend we told you our top moments for the first week of Coachella from Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Today, before the second weekend of the festival begins, we’d like to share some of our intimate portraits of artists and bands at Coachella, including Future Islands, Blood Orange, Disclosure, Courtney Barnett, and Alexis Krauss of Sleigh Bells. They’ve all been shot beautifully on film by our own Pooneh Ghana and can be viewed in the gallery above.
Alan Licht and Brian Chase recently announced their plan to release a collaborative album. Chase is best known for drumming in the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, while Licht remains a heavyweight of experimental and improvised music (and a pretty great hired gun as you might have heard via Lee Ranaldo’s new band). Their upcoming album, We Thought We Could Do Anything, finds them crafting dense improvisation that drifts like snowstorms. Below you can listen to the song “Immediate Release,” which provides anything but, yet has a glacial loveliness all its own.
FKA Twigs played a packed show at Glasslands in Brooklyn last night and debuted new music. A recording of a new one seemingly titled “Give Up” is now available and shows that Twigs sounds just as otherworldly live as she does in the studio. Check out the bewitching new song below.
Yeah it really is!
Christoph played with them on Belong, but they are touring members now (and before Belong). But I just meant that people tend to be more familiar with Pains than DG. You’re totally right though, and I miss the Guild too…
“people who like to have their neural cavities caved in by music” <<< That should be my new job title here.
Don’t forget “Inspector Norse” !
Just about the perfect time for this to come out. Also worth checking out Saint Pepsi’s “Unhappy” that we posted on last year which is built around samples from “The Summer Ends” off this album.
Thanks for pointing that out! We just updated the post.
Yeah I think everyone is forgetting this is coming out! They put out 1 single a few months ago, and aside from a remix there’s been very little in terms of any promotion. My understanding is that this is how the band has wanted it so more power to them.
Either way the album really does speak for itself, and I already know from last summer that this stuff destroys live.
huh, just saw this thread. Hey, everybody!
Yep it’s corrected now.
Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) has been live tweeting the stream for the last two hours and it’s hilarious.
