brutal rumor: coachella 2k11 lineup leaked, not leaked #rumorwave

as we near the official announcement, the annual coachella lineup guessing game is upon us and the internet-o-sphere has already taken to predicting the lineup based on bubbling rumors, tour schedules, album releases, iphone coming to verizon, myspace laying off employees, and statistics from past coachellas.

so as a member of the elite music blogging community, i too will construct a coachella 2k11 lineup consisting of totally uneducated guesses, wishlist rubbish, and past coachella participation factors. i have made sure to include some shitty acts since every year there are tons of barf worthy artists on the bill.

here is the brutal hipster coachella 2k11 lineup in no particular order…

brutal faves: albums of 2010

u skimmed my fave songs of 2010 list… now here is the brutal hipster fave albums list of 2010 list for you to totally ignore.

though were are many excellent releases this year, these are probably the ones i spent the most time listening to. also, putting these picks in order of significance is pretty much the hardest thing a person can do. like sofies choice hard. but i cheated by looking at other blogs that already put out their year-end lists.

whats not to like about girls?

girls the san fran band are about to release their new ep “broken dreams club” next week, and though the lead free-in-exchange-for-your-email mp3 hit the internet a month ago, im only getting around to farting about it now.

the track “heartbreaker” is every bit girls’ indie hipster blues pop with heart-strewn sorrow, though the band promise a more refined polish which “heartbreaker” fully supports. the polish takes nothing away… melodies and croon are fully familiar and songwriting is far above your typical lo-fi indie fuzz. its just how we like our girls.

looking forward to the ep. it drops 11/22 on true panther. download yer “heartbreaker”…
