The Neighbourhood: These SoCal rockers are known for presenting themselves in monotone black and white in videos, photos and even their stage wear. But we promise their music contains many tones. A lot of them. We challenge you to go hear for yourself.
Steve Aoki: We're used to his shows involving crowd surfing (yay!) and cake throwing (aw, cake, no), but this electro-house DJ may pull off his best stunt ever. You see, he's booked for MIA fest in BOTH Philly and LA. A coast to coast race to rock your world? We'll be watching.
Bleachers: Jack Antonoff of Fun. apparently wrote the music for this project over the past few years, but kept the whole thing totally secret from almost everyone around him. We're guessing hiding that kind of thing wasn't, um, fun, but the resulting sound is another story.
Pharrell Williams: If there's anyone this hit maker hasn't collaborated with, it's a well-kept secret. Then again, maybe that's why his infamous hat is so big. It's full of secrets. You know you're curious now, aren't you?
De La Soul: You might just know them as "those guys who rapped on that Gorillaz song" but before they were laying down rhymes with animated Brits, this trio was releasing material that influences hip hop to this very day.
Mayer Hawthorne: Don't let the glasses, vest and tie fool you, Mayer's less geek and more smooth neo-soul man. I mean, come on, there's nothing geeky about taking cues from both Barry White and Public Enemy, right? And if there is, hey, it's good to be a geek.
