GROUPLOVE – “Itching On A Photograph” Remixes by Wolf Gang and The Very Best

24 Sep

Wow, Wow, Wow, just heard two sweet new remixes of GROUPLOVE’s “Itching On A Photograph” by Wolf Gang and The Very Best. I loved the song before but wow, these remixes are dope.  I’d love to say you can listen and download below but I got it from their mailing list this afternoon so I’d suggest visiting www.grouplovemusic.com, sign up for their updates and perhaps you can get your hands on these remixes too.

And keeping on the GROUPLOVE topic for a moment, this Thursday my interview with Christian Zucconi runs in Vegas SEVEN so keep your eyes out for that as I preview the upcoming show on October 4 at The Cosmopolitan.

Fall tour starts Wednesday!

Coachella 2012 Line-Up & My Initial Thoughts

10 Jan

Another year of anticipation has come and gone as the 2012 Coachella line-up was released and while it’s pretty awesome they secured all the acts for back-to-back weekends on April 13-15 and April 20-22 I have to say my initial reaction was meh.  Don’t get me wrong, there are a ton of phenomenal musicians slated to play the festival but I personally feel they lacked in the bigger acts category but did a stellar job with the smaller ones.

Headliners: Radiohead, great score and definitely one of the most sought after acts this year, The Black Keys love ‘em but bumping them up one slot from last year into the headline act…., Dre and Snoop, ok I get it and Cali kids will probably love this but is this how you really want to close out three days of music (I’ll probably be eating my words as this may end up being the most talked about performance)?

Also this year has so much more EDM and on the main stages, I know its music of the present but I wonder if/how it will influence and change the dynamic of the festival since it’s thrust to the top.  I’m a big fan of EDM and these artists but Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Avicii, Kaskade, Afrojack, Justice, Sebastian Ingrosso and Madeon all as “main acts” it could get interesting just look at how many other EDM acts are booked.

Now what really excites me about Coachella:

Friday: M83, Jimmy Cliff & Tim Armstrong (oh wow this is going to be awesome), GIRLS, The Rapture, Madeon, Yuck, Dawes, WU LYF, GIVERS, Wolf Gang, Ximena Sarinana, Band of Skulls, honeyhoney

Saturday: Miike Snow, St. Vincent, Manchester Orchestra, AWOLNATION, Azealia Banks, Kaiser Chiefs, The Head and The Heart, Laura Marling, tUnE yArDs, The Black Lips, Childish Gambino, The Vaccines, Grouplove, Gary Clark Jr., We Are Augustines

Sunday: Beirut, The Weeknd, The Hives, Real Estate, Wild Flag, Fitz & The Tantrums, araabMUZIK, Lissie, Gardens & Villa

Something else that I love and hope is a trend for all the festivals this year is the addition of acts from outside the United States.  Bands like WU LYF, Wolf Gang, M83, The Vaccines, The Hives and others that are extremely talented will get introduced to so many new fans.

All in will it be fun, heck yeah but what else will be fun is Coachella East aka Las Vegas.  With a week in between you better believe Las Vegas is going to be a mid-week retreat with acts popping up for DJ sets in clubs and concerts peppered all over the Las Vegas Strip.

New Music: Wolf Gang – “The King and All of His Men”

7 Nov

My latest in new music obsession comes courtesy of the Max McElligott led Wolf Gang.  The British symphonic rock band released their debut album Suego Faults over the summer and have already toured with Florence + The Machine and Miike Snow as well as opened for The Killers this past summer.    Give a listen to “The King and All of His Men” and you’ll most likely have this on your fall/winter playlist.
