ACL Gimme 5 – Beaches
Happy ACL day part 2! For those of us, like me, who couldn’t get away to see much last weekend, today marks the beginning of 3 more music filled days. The weather should be fantastic and some new bands have been added to the already stacked weekend lineup. Today I am finishing off my Gimme 5 feature this year with Toronto based Beaches who play in a matter of hours. So hit the jump and check out their words and picks.
1. King Princess – “Prophet”
Ive been a huge fan of King Princess for a while now, I just think shes an incredibly bad ass, unique and individual artist who writes great songs. This one is particularly great.
2. Tame Impala – “The Less I Know the Better”
Im beyond excited to see this band play live again. Their light show is unreal and they always sound immaculate.
3. Kacey Musgraves – “Slow Burn”
Kacey is an absolute country goddess and queen. Her songwriting blows me away. Every song in this record is amazing but I love this one the most.
4. Idles – “Colossus”
Our producer showed us this band and their sound is just too fucking cool to not include them on this list.
5. Tierra Whack – “Hungry Hippo”
Coolest rapper right now. Absolutely genius album and visual content. Stellar!!! This song slaps.
Many many thanks again for making the time to offer your thoughts and opinions on this years festival.
As previously mentioned, Beaches play TODAY at 12:30pm on the American Express stage. Be there.
