Delorean have stuck together. They started the band as teenagers in the Basque Country town of Zarautz in Spain, informed by a love of hi-hat-frenzied dance music, then moved to Barcelona, where they fully embraced carefree Mediterranean club music on their celebrated 2010 LP, Subiza. After touring heavily in support of Subiza the band built their own studio in their adopted hometown of Barcelona – looking for a semblance of normalcy to record their follow-up, Apar. However, a failed relationship, a national financial crisis and an embrace of a more sophisticated relationship to sound recording and songwriting push the stories and dynamics of this album to a deeper more complex place. Lead singer, lyricist and bassist Ekhi Lopeteg calls Apar simply their “big production album”, but through his articulate lens, the record’s emotional undercurrent, and the band’s mastery of luxurious, coast-of-Spain beats, Apar is something altogether more illuminating.

We Love Music Industry Conventions Disguised As Music Festivals (And Vice Versa) : Matador / True Panther Artists At SXSW
I hope you'll excuse my weary tone --- it's not that I don't look forward to South By Southwest or the plethora of free, unaffiliated events (especially those that take place in glorified jello-shot emporiums masquerading as music venues for one week out of the year). It's just that I'm really pissed off someone told all of the bands below they're staying at my place.

It's a half-session/half-3D music video vibey from Pitchfork TV. It's cool. Please purchase Subiza if you haven't already, and do last summer all over again this summer.
As announced on the official Coachella page, stage times are out now for all bands playing this weekends festival and you'll find Matador and True Panther bands well represented, without any clashes (...hopefully) too! Additionally, Interpol have announced exciting details about their Coachella performance in collaboration with The Creators Project, David Lynch, Andi Watson, HPX and Wieden & Kennedy: Interpol Under Surveillance Surrounded as we are by an ever-increasing number of cameras in our daily lives, we begin to lose ownership of our own images. Anonymous technology is analyzing, categorizing and archiving our very existence. Interpol, in collaboration with David Lynch, Andi Watson, HPX and Wieden & Kennedy present a visual juxtaposition of the seen and the unseen. As the observer becomes the observed, the performance explores the deepening layers of covert surveillance, morphing data acquisition into visual beauty and questioning the fine line between the viewer and the voyeur. Featuring the premiere of the David Lynch animation "I Touch A Red Button Man" for the song "Lights", and utilizing real-time visual manipulation from Seattle-based HPX, the performance will be streamed live to the internet as well as to the audience at Coachella. From here Interpol continue their tour around the southern states with School Of Seven Bells, The New Pornographers head out with the Walkmen in tow, Cold Cave join the Kills on the road, Glasser will be supporting TV On The Radio, whilst Delorean bring their broken Spanglish charm to headline shows in Chicago and Brooklyn. The Coachella stages and times for all our acts are below, enjoy! Friday Cold Cave – 3pm @ Mohave Stage Interpol – 7:25pm @ Coachella Stage Saturday Glasser – 5:15pm @ Gobi Tent The New Pornographers – 6:35pm @ Outdoor Theatre Sunday Delorean – Sun, 4/17, 2pm or 3pm @ Gobi Tent

In addition to the Coachella appearance you may have read about, Delorean will be hitting San Francisco, Chicago and New York this summer.
