Day Two of Coachella is like a second tour of duty: by now you know where the ATM is, where the good snacks are, and how to get in the checkpoint line that has the most gullible security guard. And parking is easier, because half the cars have been safely lodged in a campsite zone the night before.

My Dry Wet Mess makes beats in Barcelona that sound like they come from L.A. and it all started with an Atari and MPC given to him by his father, a bass player in Ennio Morricone’s orchestra. He speaks now from his parents’ house after Christmas about why everything is difficult for him, his inability to get a visa, and his affinity for twisting pop songs and mashing them with noises from unidentifiable sources.

Daedelus is a perfect Victorian gentleman who makes beautiful records about wars no one cares about and the virtues of handmade clothing. 2011 marks ten years of his recording, celebrated now with the release of his latest Bespoke, as well as a third Magical Properties tour, and shows at SXSW and Coachella. This is truly his year, as it should be. He speaks now about this world’s many failings and the oncoming alien battle we’re all going to face. This interview by Lainna Fader.

With pulsing bass, broken hip-hop rhythms, soulful and subtle vocal synths, and an unwavering Kraftwerk-esque drum machine, Irrational Alphabet is equal parts beat and melody from a world somewhere between the L.A. beat scene and the London dubstep scene.

I’m generally not a fan of top x album of the year lists (cause the ones I see on other blogs ignore the massive amount of incredible releases on small labels as well as awesome self-released records) but I decided to do one anyway. Lots of beats and garage rock and most of them are [...]
