Things We Love This Week: Coachella 20 Years In The Desert, REYNA, Alex O’aiza

How are you doing this week? I have been feeling rather sorry for myself as the next wave of gig cancellations has started to come through (RIP festival season 2020). An abundance of leftover Easter chocolate has (sort of) softened the blow, but I know that I’m not alone in saying that the uncertainty of this ever changing situation has cranked the anxiety levels up to eleven.


I am definitely not speaking for all of us here, but when the news broke that Coachella was being postponed to October, I felt rather down about it. I understand that it’s a privilege to feel this way when there are much more pressing things happening in the world, but Coachella’s annual livestream has annually proven itself to be an accessible and consistent platform for many music fans around the world. Over the past few years, I have tuned in religiously; back in 2017, I stayed up past an ungodly time to watch Father John Misty grace the main stage, and the Little Monster in me set a 5am alarm to make sure that I didn’t miss a second of Lady Gaga’s electrifying headline set. 

In lieu of my beloved livestream, YouTube Originals’ new documentary, Coachella: 20 Years In The Desert, did a damn good job of transporting me to Empire Polo Club.

Coachella: 20 Years In The Desert

Chronicling the 20-year whirlwind history of the iconic festival, Coachella: 20 Years In The Desert celebrates two decades of the cultural touchpoint’s greatest moments. Mixing fan footage with remarkable cinematography, the two hour-long documentary takes its audience through many of the event’s groundbreaking performances; Daft Punk’s awe-inspiring 2006 slot gets a nod, and Beyonce’s seminal 2018 headline show, aka “Beychella” (obviously) doesn’t go amiss. 

Given that the world is entirely devoid of gigs for the time being, the film seems to resonate on a deeper level if you view it with the current situation in mind. It beautifully illustrates what it means to actively engage with live music, and how such a practise can be life changing in so many ways, far beyond the realm of Coachella. Blimey — pass me the tissues!


Thankfully, it seems that I’m not the only one with a Coachella-shaped hole in my heart.  Today, sister duo REYNA have dropped their latest single, the aptly-titled Coachella. See what I did there? 

REYNA – Coachella

REYNA weave their happy memories of the Californian festival into an indie-pop gem that plays with clean guitar lines and layers of slinky synths. The best part? They confidently deliver a punchy chorus that’ll have you dancing all day long. The single also comes with deftly woven threads of their Latin heritage; their native Spanish is incorporated into the bridge and Mariachi trumpets are suffused throughout.

Bored of self-isolation? Stick some glitter on your face, give this disco-lite ditty a spin and close your eyes. It’s the closest you’ll get to that festival feeling all summer. 


Right, enough of me blabbering on about a festival that I have NEVER been to. Instead, let me introduce you to Alex O’aiza, who is another shining example of how many up-and-coming artists are pushing through this period of adversity via their creative outlets. 

Alex O’aiza – Out Of My Mind

Alex O’aiza is trying to make sense of the Gen Z experience. While stuck in quarantine, the singer-songwriter has delivered a timely message about togetherness in a time of hardship wrapped up in a snappy, hook-laden single.  O’aiza blends textured samples with rolling, gritty guitar riffs to deliver a healthy dose of shimmering alt-pop. You’ll be hard-pushed to find yourself not hitting the repeat button after the first listen.

Even better, though, is the Instagram-themed video that O’aiza made during lockdown, which sees him travel through every goddamn filter the app has to offer. It definitely put a smile on my face, and I can almost guarantee that it will have the same effect on you.

Things We Love This Week: 5 Seconds Of Summer, Dua Lipa, Father John Misty

Hello one and all! My name’s Sophie Williams and I am now in charge of Things We Love This Week, the lovely little section of Stereoboard that you are viewing right about now. It’s here where I am free to wax lyrical about the best musical releases of the week, and if all else fails, natter on about upcoming artists that I’ve been keeping an eagle eye (and pair of ears) on — lucky me!


Well, to start, it has been quite the week, hasn’t it? With the country now under lockdown for at least three weeks, music may be acting as a refuge for a lot of us in this current state of crisis. I, for one, have been finding some comfort via the boy band that I grew up with: 5 Seconds Of Summer. Throughout my early teenage years, 5 Seconds Of Summer (or 5SOS, as I still affectionately call them) became the grid by which I learned music fandom, social networking and the ways of a subculture. Given my personal history with the band, you could call this comfort listening, perhaps, but if 5 Seconds Of Summer have sonically matured into a watertight pop-rock crossover outfit, should I even be ashamed? Let me elaborate…

5 Seconds Of Summer – ‘C A L M’

Okay, so hear me out — *clears throat* — 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER ARE A GOOD BAND. A very good band, in fact. Now that they have parted ways with their questionable pastiche of post-adolescent, angsty pop-punk in favour of sleek, synth-laden power pop stompers, 5 Seconds Of Summer in 2020 are a band renewed.

Today (March 27), the Aussie rockers have released ‘C A L M’. It stands out as their most polished work to date, complete with syncopated drumbeats, flourishes of flashy synths and psychedelic guitar leads. The album’s fourth single, No Shame, marks a particular highlight; lyrically, it satirises self-obsession and toxic fame chasers atop a thumping bassline and falsetto-laced vocals, which work together to make a memorable, yet addictive chorus. Elsewhere, Wildflower offers a fun, choose-your-own adventure style refrain and the echoic Easier plays up to the band’s newfound penchant for dark, gothic synth-pop.

‘C A L M’ is a confident step forward for 5 Seconds Of Summer, and it begs for the attention of their many naysayers. Go on, give them another try. You know you want to.

5 Seconds Of Summer will support ‘C A L M’ with their No Shame World Tour, which is set to hit UK arenas in May 2020. Tickets are on sale now.


Now, if 5 Seconds Of Summer are (still) not quite your cup of tea, here is something that we can both agree on: Dua Lipa has just set the benchmark for pop music in 2020. Actually, scrap that. Dua Lipa has just set the benchmark for pop music this DECADE. 

Dua Lipa – Break My Heart

If you haven’t heard already, Dua Lipa’s second studio LP, ‘Future Nostalgia’, dropped earlier today. Prior to its official release, Lipa had already enjoyed great chart success via a string of disco-inflected singles, including the chart-topping Don’t Start Now. The cream of that crop, though, is relatively easy to identify; Break My Heart is the fourth single to be taken from ‘Future Nostalgia’ and it recently arrived in a blaze of pink neon.

Break My Heart works tirelessly to prove that it owns the dance floor, sneaking in a sample of INXS’s 1987 smash-hit single, Need You Tonight, on the way. Over streamlined, slinky synth breaks and bursts of disco shimmy, Lipa delivers punchy vocals as she demands answers from a potential lover. “‘Cause now there ain’t no letting you go, Am I falling in love with the one that could break my heart?”, she questions, marking out a party-ready, anthemic chorus. The track oozes euphoric confidence of the highest order, and quite frankly, is the best thing that Lipa has released to date.

After listening to Break My Heart at least 30 times on loop, I’m about to get my teeth stuck right into the rest of ‘Future Nostalgia’. I suggest that you do the same, even if it is the only thing that you achieve in quarantine today.

Dua Lipa is set to tour the UK and Ireland in January 2021 as part of her Future Nostalgia World Tour. Tickets are on sale now.


Throughout the week, I have found myself going back to Father John Misty’s ‘Pure Comedy’ many times as I’ve been working from home. If you haven’t given it the time of day prior to reading this, I urge you to do so. Revel in all 75 glorious minutes of it. I mean, given the current situation, you know you’ve got enough time to spare…

Father John Misty – ‘Off-Key In Hamburg’

Earlier this week, Father John Misty dropped the transfixing ‘Off-Key In Hamburg’, a surprise 20-track live album. Recorded last August in Hamburg, Germany with his band and the widely acclaimed Neue Philharmonie Frankfurt orchestra, the career-spanning tracklist traverses through the finest cuts from all four of Josh Tillman’s studio albums. The best part? He manages to squeeze in his magnum opus, the 13-minute Leaving LA, taken from the seminal ‘Pure Comedy’.

‘Off-Key In Hamburg’ may leave us wishing for the times where we were able to safely attend gigs, but in this current climate, it works as a balm to help these days pass by even quicker.

It must be noted, however, that some of the tracks here, particularly those taken from ‘Pure Comedy’, feel more apt than ever during this global pandemic. Though the record was unveiled in all its glory back in 2017, when listening in 2020, its prophetic and intricate premonitions about the human condition translate to insightful reflections on the current crisis that is taking place all around us. To leave you in the words of Mr. Tillman: “I hate to say it, But each other’s all we’ve got…”

‘Off-Key In Hamburg’ is available to stream or purchase via Bandcamp. All proceeds will be donated to the MusiCares COVID-19 fund, which aims to provide relief to those in the music industry that have been drastically affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Festival Preview: What To Expect From All Points East

The festival market is HUGE. There are hundreds to choose from in the UK alone. So, taking a huge leap and starting a brand new one in the current landscape is a risky decision. How do you stand out?

Well, it helps to be backed by the organisers of Coachella, and to slot in at a venue that’s been part of the scene for a while. All Points East will take place in London’s Victoria Park this weekend, and it’s being pitched as a fest for discerning music fans.

It arrives complete with claims of the best sound the park has ever heard, along with the obligatory fairground rides and hipster street food vans. But the real answer to standing out? Same as it ever was. Get the right line up.

On paper, the All Points East bill is forward-thinking, eclectic, and most of all cool. Just like you, right? First up, comeback kings LCD Soundsystem take over the East Stage on Friday night. Last September saw the release of their critically acclaimed comeback ‘American Dream’, the first new material from the Brooklyn dance-punks since their 2011 Madison Square Garden sign off.

Frontman James Murphy will be hitting the decks throughout the weekend too, with his side project Despacio – a collaboration with David and Stephen Dewaele of Soulwax and 2manydjs.

The Saturday night headliners showcase smooth laid back beats, distinctive vocals, flawless productions skills and even a Mercury Prize – it could only be the XX. The idea will very much be to lose yourself in a concoction of Jamie XX, Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim’s vocal plaits, delicate reverb and ambient backgrounds.

Sunday’s headliner might be one of the most eclectic singers of a generation, and one of the few genuine legends we have left. Björk will draw a line under things with colourful art-pop and avant-garde everything. There’s a decent gender balance on the bill – no, it ain’t a 50/50 split, we’re a long way off that yet – but it is far more diverse than some.

Across the weekend, expect to see performances from genre-spanning giants like Sampha, the international-pop-band-of-the-moment Superorganism, the returning shimmering indie band Friendly Fires, as well as the hugely popular Lorde, Father John Misty, Glass Animals, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Stefflon Don, Soulwax… you get the picture.

Thankfully, there isn’t too much overlap in terms of stage clashes – a sticking point often met with disappointment from die-hard festival-goers. On this bill, the most difficult decision you’ll make will be between Flying Lotus 3D and Father John, or Rex Orange County and Laura Misch.  

Possibly one of the most interesting parts of All Points East is the accompanying side shows. They make the festival feel like more of a sprawl, with an eclectic list of big names set to step in. On June 1, indie types Catfish and the Bottlemen like will be joined by fellow indie types Blossoms and the Hunna, while the National take over on Saturday June 2 with their biggest headline show to date.

Support there comes from from the War On Drugs, Public Service Broadcasting, This Is The Kit and loads more, while Nick Cave and some particular Bad Seeds close the entire event – after sets from none other than Patti Smith, St. Vincent and Courtney Barnett – on June 3.

All Points East is an interesting proposition. It could be big, judging from the organisers and stellar line up. By the time Björk is done with us, it might be one of those events that elicits a response of jealousy and awe from your mates.

But it if it sounds like an overload of great bands all in one go, you’re also possibly on the money. Like most festivals it’ll likely be chaotic, expensive, and difficult to see past the tall guy in front of you while Matt Berninger does his thing or the many colours of Beck pass you by.

These are the risks, but early suggestions are that All Points East will hand you some of the best around on a historical-park-shaped platter.

 

When? May 25 – June 3

Where? Victoria Park, London

How much? £39.95 – £169.95

Things We Love This Week: Big Scary Monsters Pop-Up, Nervus, Father John Misty

Following the fun of our Work Day Out on Sunday, it’s been a fairly quiet week here at Stereoboard…we have listened to a lot of things and have eaten a lot of cake. Head below to check out a few cool things that arrived in our inbox this week. Or don’t. It’s up to you.

Big Scary Monsters Pop-Up Event

Laura, Huw and I headed down to Cardiff’s Duke Street Arcade on Sunday to catch a pop-up event run by the indie-punk label Big Scary Monsters. It was awesome.

We caught Lauren playing Worriers songs first, before they hot-footed it off to Bristol to support Tigers Jaw on their UK tour. Then, on came Em from Nervus, who filled the room with renditions of our favourite pop-punk songs from their latest album. Despite the nerves of playing in such an intimate fashion to a crowd of perhaps 20, both musicians built up nicely for Slaughter Beach, Dog (ex-Modern Baseball co-frontman Jake Ewald), whose quiet, heartfelt performance of narrative lyrics and finger-picked guitar we watched sat cross-legged on the wooden floor. Magical.

Nervus – Fall Apart

To continue in a similar vein, Nervus have also shared a new video. Fresh off last month’s bleakly-titled sophomore album ‘Everything Dies’, the video for Fall Apart dropped on Wednesday, created by the film company Theatre on Wax.

The video narrates the Flight Of Icarus tale in stop-motion light-box form. The DIY style gives it a humble and endearing quality as we follow the little cut-out fellow on his endeavours. The director of the company, Mark Crane, said of Theatre on Wax’s work: ”Desire, dereliction and a sense of just being outside, on the fringe of something beautiful or dark that echoes in our lives… Sometimes we peek through the crack, and sometimes we dive in”

There’s something alluring about this sentiment that really strikes a chord within the video.

Father John Misty’s Self-Deprecating Meme

First of all, a disclaimer: I don’t think I could ever enjoy the music of a man who describes his genre as a “post-modern self-reflexive semi-ironic renunciation of originality”. Father John Misty announced a new album, ‘God’s Favorite Customer’ on Wednesday morning, which was previewed by two brand new tracks and an accidental album leak by Apple Music. The whole record was briefly available to stream by fans until being removed by the proper authorities. The sardonic singer-songwriter responded by changing his Facebook profile picture to a meme. Lol.

‘God’s Favorite Customer’ is actually due for release on  June 1 through Sub Pop/Bella Union.

Morrissey’s Cat

I could flesh this out with some context about the controversial Morrissey interview that exploded onto our interweb earlier this week, but I won’t bore you with him. Instead, here’s a lovely image of his cat. What a cutie.

As always, thanks for the attention of your eyes and ears. See ya next week.
