Life In Mixtape Form #16

Like last week, my week was again highlighted by a concert. This time I went to see Lykke Li (and Best Coast). I’ve seen Lykke before, in a small venue, but I found this bigger outdoor theatre performance to be much more memorable. I think it fit her unique stage presence. Part of that was having a 2nd album of songs–she just kept playing more and more songs that I liked and I kept thinking, “oh yea I forgot about this song!” It was great to hear the new stuff live; sometimes I just listen to the albums so much and sometimes I get a little nitpicky critical in thinking about them. But then to hear them live makes me step back–yes these are great songs.

(Best Coast was fine; all their songs sound the same.)

AlmostAGhost – Coache11a Friday mix

Unlike last year, I’m not going to Coachella this time around, for various reasons. Even though, I’m not sold on the headliners, the line-up is not one of the reasons. Judging a festival by the headliners is lazy. The fun thing about big festivals is the choose-your-own-adventure vibe. Last year, I saw very little of any of the headliners! There was better things to do. (For example, Fever Ray.)

Anyway, turns out there was 20 bands on Friday I put in my Yes or Maybe category to see (if I were going), and that’s who is in this mix. 🙂

Saturday and Sunday lineups to come in time…
