Highlight Of Coachella (YouTube Stream) - Death From Above 1979

Thanks to YouTube's streaming of many highlight Coachella performances, my weekend was devoured by this festival. And out of all the performances I was able to watch, Death From Above 1979's was the easily one of the most enjoyable (along with Jack's Mannequin and Jimmy Eat World). What makes the performance even better was that it wasn't created by bias, as I barely knew the band before the performance. At the announcement of their return back in February, I downloaded You're a Woman, I'm A Machine, but I barely gave it much listen. After this performance, I expect to stick the album into rotation on my iPod. Lead singer/drummer Sebastien Grainger's raspy voice echoed throughout the enormous crowd, while Jesse Keeler's bass was loud, distorted, and explosive. The band played 10 out of the 11 songs off You're A Woman, I'm A Machine, and every single moment of the performance was spectacular. If there's an album in the works, it will instantly become one of my most anticipated, as my feelings towards the band are now the same as how their music is. Exciting. You can watch the entire performance here.
