These are the bands that I’m looking forward to checking out at the 2015 Coachella Music Festival. In the unlikely event anyone cares, here’s the list so far.
It’s always interesting and fun when the countdown hits the Top 19.
#16 Built To Spill
The only thing bigger in Boise, Idaho than Bronco Football is the indie rock band Built To Spill. The band has been making music since 1992, which probably qualifies them as a Heritage Act. The former Treepeople frontman Doug Martsch started BTS with current member Brett Netson and Ralf Youtz before Boise State was even thinking about playing D1 Football.
They’ve released seven studio albums, and their eighth Untethered Moon will drop on April 21. The band cites Dinosaur Jr., Camper Van Beethoven, and Pavement as influences, while their music has inspired such indie acts as Modest Mouse, The Strokes, and Death Cab For Cutie.
Ultimate Alternative Waver (1993)
There’s Nothing Wrong with Love (1994)
Perfect from Now On (1997)
Keep It Like a Secret (1999)
Ancient Melodies of the Future (2001)
You in Reverse (2006)
There Is No Enemy (20o9)
Untethered Moon (2015)
Amazingly, my calculations have this as Built To Spill’s cherry Coachella.
Times I’ve seen them = Zero
This is brand new tune “Living Zoo”
This one is my favorite BTS tune “Goin Against Your Mind”
“Liar ” is another good one
