With Coachella a mere few days away and the heat creeping up on us here in so-cal, we are officially ready to party! We’re saving the best for last, and it’s our girl Lana Del Rey! Her voice is amazing, she’s oh so fierce, and we’re kind of blushing a bit over here because recently got a pair of our Notellas and is obsessed! <3 Let's gear up for summer with this party have, Summertime Sadness.
One of the head liners we’re most stoked on this year has to be Arcade Fire. They’re just one of those bands who always puts out good new music. We’re currently into their new singles “Reflektor” and “Afterlife”. What’s your favorite Arcade Fire song?

Ok, we all know the boys from Outkast have been releasing hits for years. But we’re feeling a throwback to this jam. Remember when “Hey Ya!” first came out? Shake it like a polaroid picture with us.

Who doesn’t love some MGMT? These guys have been killing it for years! Lately their sound has evolved into something different, but it still retains the familiarity we’ve come to love from the boys. We are stoked to see the tunes come to life soon at Coachella. Check out the video to one of our favorite new songs by them!
7. MGMT: “Cool Song No. 2″
Okay, but really… Who’s ready for Coachella!? #cantwait
A little behind the scenes from our Nylon Magazine shoot a few weeks ago.
Dev Hynes is the mastermind producer behind Sky Ferreria’s “Everything is Embarrassing” and Solange’s “Losing You” but he does pretty badass all on his own under the stage monicker Blood Orange. We love the vibe of his new album Cupid Deluxe. Can’t wait to see him shred at Coachella this year!
6. Blood Orange: “Chamakay”
We’re super into Chvrches front woman, Lauren Mayberry’s style. We love how she pairs her rock and roll vibe with flawy dresses and playful prints. And her sweet melodic voice? I mean… <3 When this single first came out we were jamming to it in the office and are now so excited to go see them play live at Coachella this year! Who are you most excited to go see?
5. Chvrches: “The Mother We Share”
The video for Ellie Goulding’s latest single “Goodness Gracious” is the perfect combination of cute, fun, and psychedelic. We love the colors and styling shown… plus, how adorable is Ellie?! She’s our #tuesdaytune for the week as we countdown to Coachella!
4. Ellie Goulding: “Goodness Gracious”
Today’s #tuesdaytune from the 2014 Coachella line up is by Solange Knowles. Now, many still know her as the Queen B of Hip Hop Beyonce Knowles’ little sister… but ever since she released her hit single “Losing You” last year, we have not been able to get her off of our minds!If you’re Indio bound for the festival this season, you won’t want to miss her set!
3. Solange: “Losing You”
Oh, and the outfits in this music video? Beyond.
