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…
pj harvey recently announced her return with her forthcoming “let england shake” album. yesterday, she dropped a track from the album pon de interwebz dubbed “written on the forehead”.
the first thing that u will notice is that her voice is drenched in annoying processed chorus effects. though she has largely abandoned her deep, powerful “man-size” vocals in favor of uh huh higher registered notes, adding effx only further effs shit up. miss ur mighty roar pj.
second… she has probably been smoking a lot of dank and vibing out to major lazer. “written on the forehead” floats on indie-credible ‘verbed out raggafied guitars and wailer-esque background vox.
interesting… and nice to see some evolution. hope “let england shake” will further rattle our notions of polly jean.
spacehall purveyors, major lazer, have remixed classic chicago house track “percolator” by cajmere and upped an accompanying music video starring a wicked host of celebs including michael jackson, tiger woods, michael jordan, and others.
