Twenty One Pilots. Love that indie/electro/rap/pop thing they got going on. Catchy as hell. I'm gonna go ahead and say Foals also even though I discovered them when their new album dropped just before the lineup was announced. I'm really looking forward to both these shows.
The 1975/Japanese House/Wolf Alice - 5/17 Governors Ball - 6/3 - 6/5 Wolf Parade - 6/9 Taste of Chaos Festival - 6/18 The Stone Roses - 6/30 Noel Gallagher - 7/5 Coldplay - 7/16 Flight of the Conchords - 7/24 Paul McCartney - 8/7 Blink 182 - 8/13 FYF Festival - 8/27-8/28
Lee Fields, Frank Turner, DIIV, the Futurebirds, Calexico.
and so much more to still get into.
This is a vicious lineup. It may be my best roo ever and I saw Dylan, the dead, patti smith, the black keys, MMJ, Taj Mahal, burning spear, and david byrne in 04 and the beastie boys, Bruce Springsteen, snoop, wilco, phish, and jimmy buffet in 09 among others.
I have actually listened to a good majority of these bands before which is way different than the last few years. But what I have listened to since the lineup drop the xx and Purity Ring are pretty awesome!

Del Mccoury band - I've known who they are for a long time and have heard a lot of their songs. But after seeing them on the lineup with Sam bush, I finally decided to dive into their full catalog. Wow.
Also: tame impala, paper diamond, foals, django django, conspirator, deal valley, Jason Isbel & the 400 unit

Alt-J is the big one for me. An Awesome Wave has been on repeat in my car for a week now. Breezeblocks is such a feel good jam to start the day with. Just started listening to Twenty One Pilots, feeling it too. They seem like they would put on a fun and energetic show. Anybody got a report on how they do live?
I'm totally digging Twenty One Pilots - they're catch, have depth, and dude is very talented as a rapper. They seem quite humble and appreciative as well, from what I've read in interviews.
I'm also really enjoying Amadou and Miriam. I feel like a lot of people (not necessarily the people on this board though) instantly dismiss music stemming from other cultures (i.e.: way too many people dismiss Rod Y Gab because they see the name and think it's "just Latin music"..but I digress), but A&M have some good rhythms and are fun to dance to; I think it'll be a good show.
The more I listen to Tame Impala the more I'm liking them as well. Same goes for Alt-J but to a lesser degree. I started listening to Father John Misty when he was first confirmed on the boards, and he's become a must-see for me.

It isn't really post-lineup, but post finding out he was playing Bonnaroo, but I've really enjoyed the Father John Misty stuff. It helps that the album was so cheap on Amazon. Unlike most years, I feel pretty familiar with this lineup.

I had heard friends talking about Calexico for quite some time, then at work a few weeks ago someone was playing them on Spotify and I had no idea who it was. They ended up burning me their newest album and I have been diving into their discography ever since. I was pretty excited when I saw them on the line up, hoping for a nice late afternoon set that I can just lounge out on the grass and chill out to.
