Andy Stott's Luxury Problems LP
Manchester-based producer Andy Stott welcomed his most recent album, Luxury Problems, in October of last year via longtime label Modern Love. Like its title and cover art suggest, Luxury Problems is a swanky affair that features measured vocals from Stott's former piano teacher Alison Skidmore. If you haven't heard it yet, you can and really should take a listen to the album in its entirety at the bottom of this post.
Stott will be heading to North America this spring for what's shaping up to be a complete tour. Though details are currently sparse in other cities, he'll be playing Lincoln Hall on March 10 with JETS (Jimmy Edgar and Machine Drum (aka Travis Stewart)) and Octo Octa. Advance tickets for the very solid electronic show are on sale now.
All known Andy Stott tour dates, a full stream of Luxury Problems, and some assorted tracks from JETS and Octo Octa are below...
Micachu & The Shapes @ Terminal 5 (NYC) (more by Amanda Hatfield)
The Adventures in Modern Music Festival is set to take place for the 10th year in a row, at the Empty Bottle from October 3-7. The "five-day celebration of outsider sounds" features eclectic lineups from top to bottom, with acts from all over the world.
The series kicks off on October 3 with performances by L.A. production duo Nguzunguzu, the godfather of home recording R. Stevie Moore, Sao Paulo Underground, and Christina Vantzou.
Dark ambient duo Demdike Stare, black metal upstarts Vattnet Viskar, Demdike Stare's Modern Love labelmate Andy Stott, and Joshua Abrams' Natural Information Society will all be performing at the Bottle on October 4.
October 5 features locals Supreme Cuts (who recently released their debut LP), London-based psychedelic outfit Shit and Shine, Duane Pitre, and Tatsuya Nakatani & Vanessa Skantze.
Chicago footwork king Traxman, French minimalist Sylvain Chauveau, Norwegian ambient artist Biosphere (who recently collaborated with Lustmord), and Hallock Hill will take over the venue on October 6.
The series ends in a big way on October 7, with a show featuring Micachu & The Shapes, Holy Other, Lee Noble, and Joseph Van Wissem. Holy Other was set to make his Chicago debut at the Congress Theater on Friday night (9/7) with Amon Tobin, but that show got canceled. This will now serve as his Chicago debut, on his very first tour. Holy Other just welcomed his great debut LP, Held, via Tri Angle. You can stream the album via Spotify.
Tickets for each individual AIMM show go on sale TODAY (9/8) at noon CST. There won't be any festival passes for sale.
