In spirit of the blues associated with the lack of Coachella valleys and musicians currently in my life I want to play a highlight of my Coachella bands, The Shouting Matches. It’s surprising the band hasn’t had as much hype as Bon Iver, since Justin Vernon is head singer/guitar player, but it could be since the Shouting Matches has a significantly different style. Justin Vernon, alongside Brian Moen and Phil Cook, bring out a deep bluesy rock with simple chords and lots of playful lyrics.
These boys did a damn fine job on the Coachella stage and I encourage everyone to check out their recently released debut album, Grownass Man. These old friends from Wisconsin are a must listen to on those road-trips through the Californian desert.
