Over the next 11 weeks I’ll dig deep into the 2014 Coachella Music Festival lineup, featuring one band per day. The purpose of this piece is to assist in difficult decisions that inevitably you’ll need to make, as well as, serve as a fun countdown to Coachella Week. Note: All bands appear in a completely random order… Enjoy, and let the countdown begin!
Day 13 = Blood Orange
Performing = Saturday

Blood Orange is his latest musical project that focuses on electronica. Dev has released two studio albums; 2011’s Coastal Grooves and 2013’s Cupid Deluxe.

Cupid Deluxe has spent the majority of January 2014 at the top of the college album charts. The single “You’re Not Good Enough” is currently in heavy rotation on indie radio, check it out below.
For those that enjoy fun facts… Mr. Hynes was once a member of the band Test Icicles. Those dudes only released one album, 2005’s For Screening Purposes Only.
