Coachella 2012 Sundays

Coachella 2012 Sundays from almostaghost on 8tracks.

Ah we’re flooding you with mixes this weekend! These should keep you busy for a couple of days, at least.

At first glance, the Sunday lineup for this year’s Coachella did not have the usual ton of excitement. But getting into it, I found it is totally underrated group of artists, and should lead me to a very diverse day of music.

Stuff I did not know before going through the lineup but am now excited for: First Aid Kit, Gotye, Le Butcherettes, Gardens & Villa, The Gaslamp Killer

UK artists (seems to be a big thing this year!): Florence + The Machine, Band Of Skulls, Fanfarlo, Wild Beasts*, Spector*, Metronomy*, Nero*, Calvin Harris*, Flux Pavilion & Doctor P*

Lots of other countries today!: Seun Kuti (Nigeria), First Aid Kit, AVICII*, Dada Life* The Hives* (Sweden), Gotye (Australia), Le Butcherettes (Mexico), Modeselektor, Zedd* (Germany), Airplane Boys (Canada), Justice*, Housse De Racket* (France), Noisia* (Netherlands)

And while most days at Coachella are probably similar, I was struck by the wild mix of genres on this Sunday: gangsta rap, different varieties of soul, afrobeat, female punks, electrojazz, electro hiphop, electro, gypsy rock, mashup DJs, whatever Santigold is. Going to be a lot of fun!

I know what you’re thinking: “this music I listen to is so boring, why am I so uncool?” Well listen to this and everything will change! All new music from 2012 that I like–the year started slow but exciting stuff is starting to come out.
