DJ KRUSH posted the following message to Facebook last night
!!! IMPORTANT NOTICE !!!The NYC show was scheduled to take place at Bowery Ballroom. His North American tour is now scheduled to begin in Portland on 7/15. KRUSH's full itinerary is listed below....
It is with great regret that we must announce that DJ KRUSH's Chicago (11.Jul) and NY (12.Jul) show must be canceled. The reason is due to Administrative Processing delays at the US Embassy, and KRUSH will not have his visa in time to travel.
KRUSH would like to apologize deeply to all of his fans, but unfortunately this is beyond his control. We will be working on rescheduling this date as soon as possible.
KRUSH suffering from shock for this situation.
We will announce his comment later.

California "nintendocore" band HORSE the Band have mostly been on hiatus since 2009, the year they released their most recent album Desperate Living (via Vagrant), but the band are getting back in action for a full US tour this year. HORSE the Band mixed metal and hardcore with synthesizers, not unlike Genghis Tron, and with lyrics about little android men with scissors on their heads, they had a sense of humor too.
Their newly-announced tour kicks off in NYC on August 9 at The Marlin Room at Webster Hall and also hits Long Island for a show on August 11 at Amityville Music Hall. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale today (7/11) at 10 AM, and tickets for the LI show are on sale now.
All dates are listed, with streams from their 2003 fan-favorite LP R. Borlax and their newest LP too, below...

Following singles/EPs on George FitzGerald's ManMakeMusic and other labels, UK producer Leon Vynehall put out his first lengthy release, Music for the Uninvited, this year via Martyn's 3024 label. Though he technically calls it a mini LP, its seven songs in over 35 minutes come off like a very complete statement, rather than a promising EP that ends too quickly. He tells Red Bull that the inspiration for the album was to evoke his earliest memories of absorbing music. He talks about subconsciously hearing cassettes in his mother's car as a child, and now romanticizing about the tape hiss those tracks would all have, as well as playing video games like Zelda, whose music directly influenced the album's opening track, "Inside the Deku Tree."
Don't let the sound of that make you think this is another of those '80s/'90s "VHS-style" nostalgia projects or an 8-bit chiptune thing. "Inside the Deku Tree" is full of gorgeous strings, jazz piano, and some rattling percussion that never fully dives into dance music. Other parts of the album are ready-made for the dancefloor though, like the house-inspired "Be Brave, Clench Fists" and "Pier Children." And those jazz influences are further explored too. "St. Sinclair" is like Herbie Hancock gone IDM (or, Flying Lotus), and elements of jazz and fusion pop up on other tracks as well. You can stream the album in full (via SPIN) below.
Leon also has a number of international dates coming up this year, and will come to the US for NYC's Warm Up at MoMA PS1 which he plays on August 9 with his pals George FitzGerald and Martyn, as well as Mutual Dreaming's Aurora Halal and San Francisco house producer Matrixxman (who played NYC with Martyn in June). That's a day show running from 3-9 PM and tickets are on sale now. Later that night, George and Leon will team up yet again for a Blkmarket show in a secret NYC location. Tickets for that late show are on sale now. Stay tuned for more details.
Leon is also featured on Isaac Tichauer's new mixtape. All of his dates are listed, with the mini LP stream, below...
Dick Cavett and Dave Hill (via Dave's instagram)
You may know Dave Hill from his stand up, his band, or his book, or from sometimes shirtless concert reviews on this website. Today, however, Dave takes on another role -- "Vice President of Fulfillment" at Amazon.com. In case you haven't been following the dispute between Amazon and the French publishing group Hachette, this new video should shed some humorous light on the issue. The video features author Malcolm Gladwell (Outliers, Blink), who has been personally affected by the dispute, and legendary talk show host Dick Cavett. This isn't the first time Dave and Dick have gotten together, either.
If that's not enough Dave Hill for you, you can catch him live, like at "Choice Cuts" which happens at Brooklyn's Littlefield on July 31 with Michelle Wolf, Colin Nissan, Mark Normand, Jen Kwok and more. (Ticktes). as part of , listen to his WFMU show, The Goddamn Dave Hill Show, or listen in on his newest stint on Pete Holmes' podcast, You Made It Weird.
Upcoming Dave Hill tour dates are listed, along with that video, below...

If you haven't heard of Brooklyn trio Public Access TV, well that's because you're not a British music journalist. They've already been acclaimed by the likes of Q, The Guardian and NME who called them "New York's hottest new band" before they even played their first live show -- which was at NYC's Niagra in January. (Lindsay Lohan and Alexa Chung were there.) PATV is fronted by John Eatherly who was in Be Your Own Pet and also played in Eleanor Friedberger's band and The Virgins for a while. Guitarist Xan Aird was also in The Virgins, and drummer Peter Baumann is also in Grand Rapids.
As for what they sound like, Eatherly knows his way around a hook and PATV's guitar pop seems directly decended from Phoenix and The Strokes, with a little hyperactive 1979 new wave in there on tracks like "I'm Allergic." Stream a couple songs below and look for their debut later this year.
You can also see Public Access TV live, including a few shows in the NY-area. They play NJ's Wonder Bar on July 29 with Reignwolf, and then a free late night show at Mercury Lounge on July 31. Then they'll play Baby's All Right on August 14 with Chicago's Twin Peaks, and Lemons. That's an all-ages show and tickets are on sale now.
After those shows, PATV will be on the road for a few shows with The Features. All tour dates are listed, along with song streams, below...

Two balls of core chaos will start rolling through North America in August. Bleak hardcore blasters Centuries and Jungbluth will unite to terrorize the eastern half of the US. The tour will hit locales like Baltimore, Chicago, and a few dates in Centuries' home state of Florida. On August 15, they'll play NYC at the Acheron with a worldly bill that includes Hexis, Plebeian Grandstand, and Reproacher. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
Centuries released Taedium Vitae in 2013 on Southern Lord, playing right into that label's current interest in dark, d-beaty hardcore. Germany's Jungbluth released a split with Callow this year, and continue to refine their take on early '90s hardcore and screamo. You can stream both records below.
As for their Acheron showmates, this breakdown might need a flow chart since three tours will collapse into one. To start, Denmark's blackened sludgesters Hexis are currently on tour throughout America for the next month with Primitive Man. Hexis' dates along with their half of the recently released split with Primitive Man appear below. Then, Hexis will hop on the Plebeian Grandstand and Reproacher tour for a few dates in early August. France's Plebeian Grandstand and America's Reproacher also have new material out this year which you can also hear below.
All tour dates are listed, with streams from the bands, below...
