We recently discussed some of the hip hop at CMJ, and now here's a breakdown of some of the electronic music.

On Thursday (10/17), Cascine and Driftless Recordings are doing a showcase at Cameo which includes Italians Do It Better co-founder Mike Simonetti, Finnish duo Shine 2009 (stream their new album below), Ejecta (aka the new collaboration of Ford & Lopatin's Joel Ford and Neon Indian's Leanne Macomber -- stream some tracks below), Heavenly Beat, Rush Midnight (aka former Twin Shadow bassist Russ Manning), North Americans, and DJ sets from Korallreven and Bruce Smear. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

That same day, Gorilla vs Bear and Yours Truly are doing an unofficial CMJ party at Glasslands with Joey Bada$$ affiliate Lee Bannon (who just signed to Ninja Tune, will release a new album, Alternative / Endings, on 12/9 via the label, and just released the free Place/Crusher EP that you can stream below), Rhode Island IDM producer The Range (who just released a new LP, Nonfiction, which you can stream below), Cyril Hahn collaborator Shy Girls (who has other dates listed below), Tokyo's Sapphire Slows (whose Allegoria LP comes out on 11/5 via Not Not Fun -- stream a track below), Brooklyn's Tei Shi, Ejecta, and a DJ set from Saint Pepsi. This show is free, and though you do need to RSVP, it doesn't guarantee entry.

Also on Thursday is the AM Only CMJ showcase at Output with Oliver, Treasure Fingers, Just Blaze, Codes and Nick Catchdubs. Tickets for that one are on sale now.

At the same venue on Friday (10/18), Ghostly International hosts an unofficial CMJ party with Com Truise, Joel Ford, Lord Raja, Heathered Pearls, Patrick Russell, Nitemoves, and Contakt. Tickets are available here and here.

Also on Friday at Glasslands, Disclosure's pal Tourist makes his US debut. Since we last spoke, Figgy and Real Magic were added to the bill, and tickets are still available.

Real Magic, who we profiled when he played CMJ 2011, finally released his debut LP this year, and also plays other CMJ shows.

As discussed, psychedelic UK duo Fuck Buttons play LPR on Friday, and since we last spoke Mystery Skulls and Lichens were added. Sold out.

Another Friday show: Brooklyn venue Cameo hosts their official showcase with hip hop production duo Blue Sky Black Death (Nacho Picasso, Deniro Farrar), Sacramento's Sister Crayon, The Range (for whom this is an album release show for the LP mentioned above), and Mutual Dreaming's Aurora Halal. Tickets are available.

And there's a show, which may not actually be part of CMJ, happening on Friday at Steel Drums (35 Beadel St in Brooklyn) with L-Vis 1990 (Night Slugs), rapper Haleek Maul, a DJ set from NYC partystarter Ital, Color Plus, and Prism House. Admission is $12 with RSVP.

On Saturday (10/19), there's a LAZERPOP CMJ party happening at Glasslands with remix duo The Hood Internet, their fellow Chicagoan Chrissy Murderbot, and another remixer E-603. Tickets are on sale now.

Also on Saturday, the second of two unofficial Pitchfork shows goes down at 285 Kent. The first is a rock show happening a day earlier, but this one trades the guitars for synthesizers with cloud-rap/pop producer Ryan Hemsworth, electronic R&B singer Kelela, footwork producer Traxman, The Range, L.I.E.S-signed synth wizard Jahiliyya Fields, Software-signed minimalist Huerco S., and Brooklyn indie pop guy Mas Ysa. Tickets are still available.


Kelela first caught our ears when she sang on the newest Teengirl Fantasy album, and she's since teamed up with producers Nguzunguzu, Kingdom, Bok Bok, Jam City, Girl Unit and others for her debut album/mixtape, CUT 4 ME (out now via Fade to Mind), which she just played a release show for this past Saturday (10/12). You can download that LP here and stream it in full below. Kelela was added to the previously discussed True Panther/Terrible Records showcase headlined by Glasser show at MHOW (10/15), which also features Empress Of, Kirin J Callinan, and Lil Jabba (tickets). She and Glasser also both play FADER Fort (details TBA).

Why isn't there a comments box for the Sufjan Stevens post?

Yo Sufjan, Miley Cyrus isn't gonna fuck you or have you open one of her concerts or tours, bro. In the end you're another smarmy Brooklyn-living transplant hipster with a big mouth who needs that mouth to get slapped.

'Pretty sad that a guy who somehow has over 71,000 likes on Facebook feels he has to up his profile by joining in on the "open letter to Miley Cyrus" bandwagon.

You have made many grammatical errors in your life, so shut up about grammar, you like Sinead O'Connor and Amanda Palmer are envious of her commercial success, and it's embarrassing that all three of you feel the need to be parental over her and not even. You're looking to get cheap publicity from slagging Miley.
