I am always humbled this time of year. No matter how much I think I know about pop music, the announcement of the Coachella lineup always reminds me just how little I know! Half the fun of going out to Indio every year is spending the couple of months before hand investigating all of the names on the bill that are foreign to me.
Today's Coachella act of the day is N.A.S.A(North America/South America). ....here is a snippet from their bio:
While N.A.S.A. stands for North America/South America and contains a number of superstar artists from both coasts of the U.S., it is about as far from a tension-building geographical showdown as a record can get. Rather, The Spirit of Apollo was born with the righteous goal of bringing people together through music and art, and that is exactly what masterminds Sam Spiegel (Squeak E. Clean) and Ze Gonzales (DJ Zegon) have done.
And the "superstar artist" cameos are awesome! Tom Waits, Kanye West, David Byrne, and in the track below, the Yeah Yeah Yeah's Karen O:(The album is called 'The Spirit Of Apollo')
