Music Tuesdays - Don't Swallow the Cap by The National

I don't know anything about this band, but I enjoy the song.  The vibe of the song and the singer's voice really reminds me of someone, but I can't put my finger on it.  Thoughts?

Music Tuesdays - Go With It by Tokimonsta (ft. MNDR)

I am familiar with Tokimonsta (TOKiMONSTA ?), but this is probably my favorite song that I've heard of hers.  I like that she puts out a lot of different sounding songs.  The vocalist on this is I believe MNDR.  Fun names people!

The NFL draft is tonight.

This really is designed from a Chargers fan's point of view, but it does give my quick thoughts on the top dozen players in the NFL draft tonight.

Coachella Music Week - Countdown by Phoenix

Amongst my friends, Phoenix was the top draw (well, maybe tied with Eric Prydz). This performance from weekend 1 pretty much sums up why.

Coachella Music Week - Crystalised by The xx

Since I am awesome, I failed to realize that Coachella in fact start this past weekend (April 12-14) and not the prior weekend.  So there's that.

Anyway, now we are well and truly in Coachella Week.  To memorialize this, here is a song from the first album by The xx, a band we've enjoyed here at FIWK.  This one's for Monday, I'll add another pick for every day this week.

Any Coachella stories that intrigued from the past weekend?

Coachella Music Week - Time To Run by Lord Huron

Since I'm a big fan of Lord Huron, you absolutely knew that I would put them in Coachella music week lineup.  One of the bands I definitely would've seen were I at the festival.

Coachella Weekend Kickoff - King and Lionheart by Of Monsters and Men

Coachella starts this weekend, and we are going to post a bunch of songs by Coachella bands in order to commemorate the festival.  Of Monsters and Men is one of the bands playing the Friday session today.

Somehow we've never put up a song by Of Monsters and Men, but I personally enjoy their songs.  The song Little Talks is their big breakout on the radio; however, the song of theirs that I first heard is King and Lionheart, above.

Music Tuesdays - Trouble Town by Jake Bugg

This song is shared partly in honor of Coachella this weekend and next.  Jake Bugg of England will be a performer at Coachella.

Tangent - has a random song ever fit a brand's logo more appropriately than Jake Bugg's song "Lightning Bolt" fits this Gatorade commercial?  It's uncanny.

Tangent no. 2 - Also in honor of Coachella next week I'll be highlighting the artists performing there that we here at FIWK have enjoyed over the past year or so.  Are there are any artists playing Coachella that you'd be particularly excited to see?  Anyone you're surprised is on the bill?

Weekend Bonus Music - On the Road Again by Keane

Keane is one of those bands like Hootie and the Blowfish, Goo Goo Dolls, or more recently Lord Huron, where all their songs sound kind of the same.  To the point where if you aren't super familiar with their songs you would be confused as to which particular one you're listening to.  But I enjoy their songs, so I don't really mind.  Keep on doing your thing, Keane.
