Best Dressed: The Last Shadow Puppets
The Last Shadow Puppets looked like they stepped off the pages of British GQ at their Friday night set. No rocker has looked that suave at the festival since Bryan Ferry graced the Coachella stage in 2014. Likewise, none of that would matter if not for the band's dark effervescence and richly crafted songs of romantic disaster. The Last Shadow Puppets are the fitfully active side-project from Miles Kane (formerly of the Rascals) and Alex Turner (of Arctic Monkeys), and they've just released their second album, Everything You've Come to Expect. The five-piece touring band was joined by a string quartet as the core duo delivered with swagger and flair, inspired by Scott Walker and maybe a bit of classic Tom Jones as Turner stood at the front of the stage, rolling his hips singing the aching throbbing come on "Sweet Dreams, TN." As the Mojave tent crowd cheered their approval, Turner responded, "You said it, sunshine."
