Cold and calculated, Interpol's music also has a warm breeze of innovation that makes the NYC band one of the more interesting groups currently in operation. Much has been made of the group's similarity to outfits such as the Chameleons and Joy Division, and admittedly the first few listens reveal certain vocal similarities. But Interpol's methodic meditations on misery are more than simple revamps of those post-punk icons -- tracks like "PDA" have a jittery, lively emergency that could only come from the contemporary musical backdrop. Dark, anthemic, and filled with the kind of elliptical, faux-gothic lyrical padding that is likely to be scrawled on PeeChee folders by this year's disenchanted high school misfits, Interpol's music is as familiar as it is necessary.

Some new gems were dropped in for good measure, alongside surprise guests Joan As Police Woman and Majke Voss Romme (Broken Twin). No Placebo show would be complete without some signature cover versions and this set did not disappoint, from the breath-taking opener to the show- Sinead O'Connors 'Jackie' to a melancholy version of Pixies 'Where Is My Mind'

A Session With Foals
Runtime: 12 minBeing from the rain-ridden lands of England, Foals are used to a different kind of festival environment: generally speaking, frontman Yannis Philippakis described them as "mud and wellies" ordeals. So we're sure they were quite pleased to travel halfway around the world to the California desert to perform for Coachella's music-hungry crowds. Prior to taking to the stage in Indio, however, Foals made a pit stop at our little poolside bungalow to perform a Festival Fever Session featuring songs off their highly-acclaimed, recent full-length Holy Fire. While you might have already seen the band's in-the-flesh transformation of "My Number" into a slow-burning beaut, we've expanded the session to include the subtle closer "Moon".
