Coachella 2013: Stone Roses vs. Blur

Happy Friday Earthlings,

So, in the battle of the British headliner bands, it looks like Blur Won this time!  The Stone Roses (whom our head honcho D-How says were the pioneers of the Madchester  psychedelic BritPop scene/sound) were the top bill and most highly anticipated.  Well according to the showdown at Coachella‘s  first weekend,  Blur simply put on a better performance entirely.  While Mr. John Squier (guitarist for Stone Roses) and the band absolutely killed it, Ian Brown‘s voice was subpar.  Plus, the crowd didn’t seem to into it…perhaps they weren’t sure what they were witnessing.  However, Blurs performance showcased an arsenal of hits that made loads of young hipsters finally recognize that WooHoo (Song 2) is just an American rubbish single compared to their well composed and performed string of hits. Damon Albarn‘s stage presence and vocals mesmorized the crowd (no Gorillaz songs necessary, staying in true form).  We guess Coachella felt the same way and made Blur the Headliners this weekend.  Anyhow, judge their sets below  and let us know what you think!

Tyler the Creator: Wolf


OFWGKTA’s Tyler the Creator officially drops his 3rd Solo project Wolf” today (April 2, 2013).  The Odd Future creative leader departs from the same content of his second album Goblin both lyrically and musically.  The production is heavily bathed in Pharrell Williams‘ (Neptunes, N.E.R.D) trippy synth heavy style, yet Tyler mans the boards and instruments solely throughout the tracklist.  Overall you can since the maturity (dare I say) in the lyrical content as well, albeit still a tad dark.  The album is basically about growing up in the spotlight, his grandmother’s death, and heartbreak.  Special guest appearances by Erykah Badu, Pharrell, Laetitia Sadier (Sterolab), Nas and the OF Gang (Frank Ocean, Earl Sweatshirt, Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, Mike G) compliment the Tyler’s heavy hand on all the other aspects of the album.

It’s refreshing to see that his comedic genius is still utilized in the videos he directs, yet the actual songs are not riddled with the “horror-core” content that made OF disturbingly famous.  Check out Tyler the Creator‘s new album on iTunes by clicking the image below.  Catch him on  the North American leg of his Wolf Tour w/ Earl Sweatshirt and others this spring April 11th-May18th.  From the glimpses we’ve seen from his European jaunt last month, it should be quite a spectacle.  LA peeps, Tyler and the OF gang will be at their pop-up store on Fairfax on album release day (today April 2nd).  #GolfWang
