With their slackerfied-Blondie sounds, California trio Best Coast have a lot of potential as an up and coming band to get big on their first time around.
The Black Angels borrow their name from a Velvet Underground song ("The Black Angel's Death Song") and their echoey, tambourine-fringed dirges owe a lot to John Cale & Co. as well. This tour is all about their third disc, Phosphene Dream, set to be released on 9.14.
UK DJ/Producer signed to Ninja Tune. Often tours with a live band, playing gorgeous lounge-y downtempo techno with echos of Burial and Album Leaf.
