The Week in OTW: April 11 (aka Hello Coachella #1)

Hey, there’s more to life than Coachella, but for those of you who are braving it out in the desert, make sure to follow our guide on how to not dress like a douche out there. Here’s our week in review: 

On repeat

Moses Sumney’s debut EP, Mid City Island, transports us away from living in the urban gridlock to somewhere truly magical.

New Jersey songstress SZA’s debut, Z, is filled with soul-wrecking ballads and memories from childhood, not to mention some prime assistance from TDE label-mates Kendrick Lamar and Isaiah Rashad. 

Ones To Watch Eric Hutchinson's new album, Pure Fiction

This song by Party Supplies takes us back to growing up in the suburbs and house parties before we went to college and became corrupted by raver culture. Those were the days.

New wave disco prophets De Lux celebrated the release of their debut album, Voyage, with a legitimately necessary dance party at The Echo. 

Hang of the week

We hung out with One To Watch band Cherub in their last five minutes before SXSW this year. We found out their biggest dream involves a commune with peaches and boats.

Interview of the week

The guys of Great Good Fine Ok on being a baby band with a hell of a name and big dreams. 

Rant/tangent of the week

The song “It All Works All The Time,” off De Lux’s debut Voyage LP. Quite possibly the best thing to happen in recent memory to rival “This Must Be The Place.” (YES, BOLD STATEMENT.)
