Listen to Coachella mixtapes here.
Autolux drops a new album so infrequently that you completely forget about them.
Since forming in 2000, the Los Angeles-based experimental noise pop band has only released three studio albums.
I was so busy around the end of 2015 compiling my end of the year lists, that I completely overlooked the fact the band was back and had shared the lead single “Soft Scene.” Therefore, my first reaction to seeing Autolux in the tiny font on Sunday’s lineup was… Wow! Autolux! from out of nowhere! If I had been paying more attention to the indie rock blogosphere at the time, I would’ve been more like… hmmm Autolux.
New music from Autolux is always a nice treat. I’ve always enjoyed the track “SubZero Fun” from 2004′s Future Perfect compact disc.
2016 will mark the third appearance for Autolux at the Coachella Music Festival. The trio played in 2005 and 2008, I missed them both times. At the time, I must’ve thought making breakfast burritos, drinking Long Island Iced Teas, and throwing a football around the parking lot was much more important than seeing Autolux, how silly I was in my younger days…..
Don’t stay up too late tonight trying to guess my Top 10.
