[News] Coachella Cruise Announced, Brings Hot Chip, James Murphy, Pulp, and More Along for the Journey

Less than an hour ago, we reported on rumors that Goldenvoice, the people behind The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, would be announcing a Coachella-themed cruise, which would set sail in December. It appears the rumors are true.

In December, Coachella will be hosting two separate cruises (they have to keep up with their recent foray into dual weekends), the first being a three-day cruise to the Bahamas starting on December 16th, and the second being a four-day cruise to Jamaica starting on December 19th. Both cruises will sail out of Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Prices for the cruise start at $500 per person, which includes cabin, entertainment, and food.

The biggest selling point, though, has to be the lineup, and Goldenvoice have brought in some major talent for their seafaring adventure. Headlining the cruise are Hot Chip, Pulp, Yeasayer, Girl Talk, James Murphy, and Sleigh Bells, with other acts including SKOA favorite El-P, Simian Mobile Disco, Killer Mike, Grimes, The Rapture, Black Lips, Cloud Nothings, DJ Z-Trip, The Gaslamp Killer, and more.

Let us know your thoughts on Coachella's ocean adventures.

[Watch] Coachella Highlights (So Far): Radiohead, Bon Iver, St. Vincent, Arctic Monkeys, Frank Ocean, Pulp, and More

With two days of Coachella 2012 come and gone, footage from numerous artists' sets have surfaced, many of which are full performances. After the jump, you can watch full performances by Radiohead, St. Vincent, Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, A$AP Rocky, M83, Frank Ocean, and Azealia Banks. Also worth watching is Bon Iver's live performance of "The Wolves," Childish Gambino delivering a new remix of "You Know Me" with the help of Danny Brown and Kendrick Lamar, and Refused performing both "Liberation Frequency" and "New Noise."

As well, the entirety of Refused's full set can be heard in audio form at Dailymotion, and, as Pitchfork points out, St. Vincent performed her new Record Store Day single "KROKODIL" during her set, which you can hear starting at the 37:45 mark.

[Watch] Pulp - "Mis-Shapes" Live at The NME Awards 2012

Another performance to take away from this year's NME Awards has to be Pulp's, who last summer united for a string of Festival appearances, even having a cheeky cameo from Julian Casablancas at Reading Festival in the UK! At the awards ceremony they performed "Mis-Shapes" taken from their 1995 album, Different Class. It seemed to go down very well with the audience and it saw Jarvis pulling out a few Thom Yorke-esque dance moves on stage. Peep it at the top to see what I'm talking about.

[Listen] My Chemical Romance - "Common People" (Pulp Cover) on Radio One's Live Lounge

I remember a few years back when My Chemical Romance first shot to fame and did a cover of Blur's "Song 2" and it was better than you would of expected. Today they popped by Fearne Cotton's show to chat about them playing below Lady Gaga at this years Big Weekend in Carlisle and after the general chit chat they got down to business and performed a cover. The New Jersey boys must have a thing for Brit Pop as this time around they covered the classic from Pulp, "Common People". Check it out below in all of its glory. A pretty damn good cover and that's coming from a brit. Credit where credit is due.
