Desert tunes: Death Cab For Cutie, Portishead, Jack Johnson

Desert tunes: Death Cab For Cutie, Portishead, Jack Johnson

Death Cab For Cutie's new album Narrow Stairs drops May 13th.

This week, tens of thousands of alt-music junkies are fleeing to the desert to take part in the hottest event around: the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. And when we say "hottest" we mean both temperature hot and, yes, sexy hot, as well. We're impressed with the headliners, such as Portishead , Death Cab For Cutie, Jack Johnson, but we're even more down with the bands in the small print, too, such as Little Brother, Jens Lekman, and Modeselektor.

We're not actually going to Coachella (bummer), but we will be celebrating virtually via the playlist below, which features Download Music's favorite artists on this year's bill. Join us by clicking the green button to launch the free playlist.
