Coachella 2012 Daily Recap: Weekend 2, Day 2

Stifling desert heat blasted Coachella for a second straight day, but you’d hardly know it from the music festival’s dance tent, where shirtless bros and bikini-clad ladies reveled in 100-degree heat like it was just another Saturday.

Sober up your Thursday with Miike Snow’s “The Wave” video, which is equal parts kooky and disturbing.

Miike Snow And Lykke Li Team Up For New Song “Black Tin Box”

Though Bloodyshy & Avant, two thirds of the indie-pop outfit Miike Snow, typically create gleaming, radio-friendly tunes for the likes of Britney Spears, they’re saving their darker melodies for their own.

Britney Spears’ “Toxic” Producers Karlsson & Winnberg Offer Up “The Dance”

When Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg aren’t producing pop masterpieces for Britney Spears (“Toxic,” “Radar,” “How I Roll”) under the monicker Bloodshy & Avant, they can be found masquerading as two-thirds of Miike Snow.
