Coachella 2012: Under The Desert Sun

I left my heart (and the heat) at Coachella.

One week has officially passed since the end of the Coachella Valley Arts and Music Festival.  Remembering the blistering heat and highs of 110 degrees, the tens of thousands who flocked to the desert are maybe happy that it’s all over. But if you’re still longing for a little sunburn or want to recall that ringing sensation in your ears, here’s a set of Treeswingers’ favorite shots from the gathering in the Indio desert.

Also if you missed it, here are our recaps from the festival: Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 

Check out the photos after the jump…

Wanderlings’ “Swingin”

Here’s fresh track from a relatively new band named, Wanderlings.  If you ask me to name this band without prior knowledge, I probably would have said they were Cut Copy or a very hip (and happy) Midnight Juggernauts.  Not much is known about them (yet) other than they’re from the UK, so just listen to the sweet sounds and dance your night away.  Enjoy the weekend everyone.

Do you hear that SIREN?

It’s been a while since I’ve heard about a really good, new, independent artist.  Usually, when I browse through Hypem, it’s filled with Skrillex remixes amongst recycled rap music and the like.  Then making his entrance is Stefan Evan Niedermeyer, or SIREN, the 21 year old with a bright future in front of him.

21-year old Stefan Evan Niedermeyer aka SIREN is a half-German, half-Australian musician, who is a young man of many talents. Raised in Singapore, Niedermeyer’s life was initially all about skateboarding, but after moving to London and getting more and more into making music, he’s now about to release his first single ‘Buckets Of Blood’, a beautifully crafted and catchy song about not finding the right path with the right girl. With plenty of more great tunes written and an experienced production team behind him, 2012 will be the year of the SIREN. (via Lodown)

It’s been a while since I’ve heard something sound fresh, yet so familiar and welcoming in a while, so be sure to listen and share with all your friends.

Justice – Audio, Video, Disco (Medley)

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but who apologizes for being away from the internet.  Instead, I give you the gift of Justice’s new album, chopped up and pieced together beautifully for our aural pleasure.
