14 Days 'til Coachella - Hercules and Love Affair

This is not a drill!! I've finally found something to get excited about on Saturday!! Hercules and Love Affair to the rescue. While their site calls their music a "disco love affair," I think they're selling themselves short in favor of brevity. This stuff sounds a lot like Curtis Mayfield or Shuggie Otis, and if you're callin' them disco, well, fine, but not me. This is pretty soulful stuff for a genre that's not supposed to have any, so step up.

Or step side to side. Or just shake it in place. Their 2008 single Time Will features none other than Antony Hegarty on vocals, so they get serious cool points for that. Shimmering stabs, bumping beats and rolling basslines round out this track, and as I mentioned, I'm pretty excited to see what these guys throw down Saturday.

UPDATE: April 5, 2009: Apparently, they've canceled. Fuckers.
