It’s that time of year again: the annual Lollapalooza lineup announcement! If you were interested in attending this year’s festival I’m sure you’ve already heard all the details, but I wanted to take a moment to fill you in should you be living in a cave or something where the only internet you get is this website. The headliners for Lollapalooza 2017 include Chance the Rapper, Arcade Fire, Muse, Lorde, The Killers, Blink-182, The xx and Justice. Other notables include Cage the Elephant, Liam Gallagher, Spoon, Migos, Kaytranada, DJ Snake, Run the Jewels, Ryan Adams, Phantogram, Tegan & Sara, Whitney, Cloud Nothings, Bishop Briggs, The Lemon Twigs, alt-J, The Head and the Heart, Glass Animals, Mac DeMarco, Sylvan Esso, Live, Warpaint, The Shins, Tove Lo, Grouplove, Lil Yachty, London Grammar, Charli XCX, Car Seat Headrest, Sampha, Maggie Rogers, Joseph and a ton more. Check out the full day-by-day lineup here. 4-Day and 1-Day GA passes are already sold out, but VIP and Platinum passes are still available. You can also try your luck on secondary markets, where I’m sure prices won’t be too far above face value. Lollapalooza 2017 takes place in Grant Park from August 3-6.
The week is quickly coming to a close, so let’s celebrate with a particularly joyous edition of Pick Your Poison. Diet Cig continue to deliver high energy and memorable hooks atop steady lo-fi garage rock melodies. Their newest single is a real blast. It’s been a few years since Land of Talk released a new record, mainly due to the fact they were broken up/on hiatus for that period. But they’re back, and sounding as good as ever. Don’t miss a track from their forthcoming full length. The new Low Roar single reminds me a little of The National, but with more of a singer-songwriter, folk-strewn sort of vibe. If Janet Jackson and FKA twigs got together and had a musical baby, it’d sound a whole lot like Tei Shi’s new song. Other artists you can hear after the jump include Cat Clyde, Nightwave (ft. Rye Rye), Oliver Tank, Shem Bey, Sono Oto, a Demo Taped remix of the latest Sylvan Esso single, Tall Juan and Tiny Vipers.
