Coachella is streaming live from Indio, California at youtube.com/coachella all this weekend. Highlights from yesterday include Neon Indian in the face of a windy afternoon, Gary Clark Jr.’s Marvin-and-Jimi inspired psychedelic blues-rock jams, Yuck’s timeless alt-guitar rock (opening with their new “Chew”), the one and only Explosions in the Sky, the two and only Black Keys (except when they have additional live members on stage), Dawes’ heartfelt Americana and the quintessential Britishness of Arctic Monkeys and Pulp. Two of last night’s most anticipated sets were by recently reformed groups: The Refused and Mazzy Star. The latter set a mood for the weekend particularly well…
