LxListening: Coachella Aftermath

coachella, aftermath, after coachella, post coachella, 2012, music festival

It has now been a full week since I walked onto the Polo Fields of Indio, where Mitchell, Sean, and I arrived at our tent at 4 AM, demanding that the rest of the crew awaken to join us in celebrating our arrival and the weekend of fun, music, and debauchery ahead of us with some cold brews. Typically after substantially memorable weekends like last, I usually like to wallow the following week, doing and listening to things that remind me of the fun vacation recently passed, in an attempt to relive the moments over and over again.

Back in high school when I first saw it live, it was quite captivating, but over time, it can lose its luster. Most acts aren’t even good at it really, but figure if they can leave an audience slightly dumbfounded by looping an instrument, even in the lamest of ways, they will sell tickets. Sadly, this can work. However, rarities do pop up every once in again in which looping is utilized in brilliant ways. Like when I saw Thom Yorke play “Give Up the Ghost” for the first time at Coachella a year and a half ago and nearly messed myself.
