My discoveries from Coachella weekend watching it on the livestream. Really that is all there is to this. Check it.
The Pretty One: A$AP Rocky
He has really good rhymes and flow. You should check him out. In all the ways.
The Sex: Gallant
His songs are sexy as all everything. The live performance was on point too. For reference he is close to Weeknd/Miguel.
Grr Awesome: Savages
This band was a beautiful revelation for me. I got so happy seeing their set that I saw it a second time. Great rock awesome.
Innovation(for me): Zhu
No idea if it is a new idea or not (I assume not) but this is first electronic outfit that has SAXOPHONE SOLOS. Now I want Careless Whisper-esque saxophone solos in every song. Every song.
The New Generation: Vince Staples
He was paired up against Ice Cube the Livestream and for me overshadowed Ice Cube. I don’t know why it too me so long to actually listen to Vince Staples. He is amazing. Me and You need to listen to him more.
The Lovely Suprise: Zella Day
I didn’t know what to expect from her but I got a strong voice with great music. It makes me happy.
The Strange One: Shamir
It is hip-hop and electronica with a squeaky voice but some how it works for me. I understand if this isn’t your thing but try at least once.
The One That Made me Cry: Meg Myers
I didn’t know what to expect and I got this woman that sings like the girls from the 90s. All that raw emotion. I ended up crying.
The One I Forgot Were Good: The Vandals
I saw the Vandals when I was like 18 or 19? I didn’t really know them then but loved them. Seeing them today I forgot that I do love them so much. They are a funny punk band but solid with the music. Like really solid.
