Last year, TUiW went to Coachella based on its stellar lineup, and this morning we have the lineup for this year’s festival, one that seems equally enticing. The fest, held in Indio, CA from April 15-17, will be headlined by Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire, Kanye West, and the reunited Strokes, with featured bands including the Black Keys, Interpol, Robyn, Animal Collective, Mumford & Sons, Bright Eyes, the National, and Death From Above 1979, who evidentially have reunited. If those names weren’t enough, throw in Broken Social Scene, Crystal Castles, Lauryn Hill, Sleigh Bells, Cee-Lo, Lightning Bolt, the reunited Big Audio Dynamite and Suede, Duran Duran, Erykah Badu, the Black Keys, Titus Andronicus, Best Coast, the Kills, the New Pornographers, Lil B, HEALTH, OFF!, Odd Future, and the Chemical Brothers. Damn. Find out more here.

The New Pornographers will return with a new album, Together, on May 4 on Matador Records. The record features all the New Porno regulars, with 9 songs by A.C. Newman and 3 by Dan Bejar. If having those two and Neko Case on one record wasn’t enough for you, the band is pulling in friends Zach Condon (Beirut), Annie Clark (St. Vincent), Will Sheff (Okkervil River), and the Dap Tone horns. That sounds like a delightful mix to us.
2009 was a great year for music, but it looks like 2010 could be even better. Big releases from Vampire Weekend and Spoon kick off a year that will also see releases from TUIW favorites Los Campesinos! and Ted Leo and the Pharmacists.
