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.
#13 = Allah-Las
Allah-Las are a Los Angeles based indie rock band that formed in 2008. The group has released two studio albums, a self-titled effort in 2011, and 2014′s Worship The Sun. The quartet prides itself on a 60′s style sound that blends British invasion pop hooks with West Coast psychedelic rock. Sound fun?
For those that enjoy fun facts… three of the members in the band met while working at the legendary Amoeba Music’s Hollywood location. While at work, the band studied 60′s U.K. vintage vinyl, the idea was “To make the kind of music we weren’t hearing being made by contemporary bands,” they have said, “free of digital effects and synthesised sounds, groovy and danceable in a way that wasn’t aggressive.”
Each year, I name one band as my under the radar can’t miss act of the festival, here you go, Allah-Las.
Years played Coachella = Zero
