On January 18th the line up for the world famous music festival Coachella was announced and all of the world was abuzz about the set list for all three nights. Interesting enough on the set list for Sunday are not one but two bands who are reunited! The first being The Strokes and the second being DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979, which came as a surprise because from what everyone was last updated on was dead due to artistic differences within the band. Thus, the duo made up of bassist Jesse F. Keeler and drums/vocalist Sebastien Grainger went on to do their own musical projects. Keeler went on to do electronic under the name of MSTRKRFT with DFA 1979′s You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine producer AI-P(Alex Puodziukas) and built a good reputation for themselves with a string of phenomenal remixes and decent albums. Grainger went on to do a solo project Sebastien Grainger & The Mountains and toured for that for a bit and did a stint of electronic music himself in 2010 with Josh Reichmann under the name of Bad Tits. Fans of DFA 1979 moved on from the break up and accepted the solo projects because it helped the healing process just a tad bit. So just like any break up, if there’s going to be a reconciliation, there’s going to be speculation. What does this mean? Are they back together for good or is this just a one time thing that’s just for fun? Are they willing to let go of their past differences and continue to make beautiful music together? Time will only tell. Until then, let’s just take it as it is and hope for the best! We’ve missed you!
