Sebastien Tellier
You probably guessed from his name that he’s French, but that didn’t stop him from heavily promoting his latest album, Sexuality (produced by the equally French Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo of Daft Punk), at American Apparel, which had an exclusive three-month prerelease of the record. Sebastien Tellier: sweatshop-free! (AC)

Every year at Coachella, there are a few musty classic-alternative bands hanging around. Like X! The Los Angeles punk band, best-known for their album Los Angeles, featuring their biggest hit, “Los Angeles” (hmm, possible trend?), have mostly stuck together after 30-plus years and several hiatuses and breakups. They’re now working on their first studio album since 1993. (AC)

Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Surely worth it just to see what type of fabulously weird outfit Karen O has planned. That, and their latest (It’s Blitz!) is chockablock with of tracks that seem like they would come across fairly mind-blowing live. (AC)
