Glasgow’s trio Chvrches are pulling off something, quickly carving out a unique voice using familiar sounds in a crowded female-fronted synth pop genre, selling out shows despite only a handful of officially released tracks. The latest of which, “Gun”, was Zane Lowe’s “Hottest Record in the World” last week, if you’re the sort of person that is in to that sort of thing.

Now that we’ve all recovered from Coachella, it’s time to look forward to the summer of music festivals ahead. Lightning in a Bottle takes over Lake Skinner in Temecula, July 11-15, with a lineup of electronic, experimental, and folk music, performance art, spiritual workshops, yoga, dance, and, really, all flavors of creativity and consciousness. Purity Ring was recently added to the list of performers that includes Tycho, Paper Diamond, Rusko, Eprom, Miguel Migs, Eskmo, Emancipator, PANTyRAiD, Lee Burridge, KCRW’s Jason Bentley, and The Lucent Dossier Experience.
