Twin Shadow / Autre Ne Veut @ Central Park Summerstage, 8/17/2013
Saturday night (8/17) Twin Shadow played Central Park Summerstage. A lovely evening for a free show, George Lewis Jr. and his band pulsed through selections from Twin Shadow's two albums, and made time for a couple new songs, as well as a couple '80s covers: Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time" and an encore rendition of Van Halen's rave-up, "Panama."
Opening was Autre Ne Veut whose live band featured both Zambri sisters. If you're in the Hamptons this weekend, you can catch Autre Ne Veut at Montauk's Surf Lodge on Saturday (8/24) which is a free show.

Lil B / Foxygen / Yo La Tengo
After entering with a robed choir behind him, R. Kelly starts stringing together his hits, medley style. A verse, a chorus, and then on to the next. Songs about "getting freaky in the club," the kitchen, the car, wherever. Kelly was the subject of a years-long investigation over child-pornography charges, but was eventually acquitted in 2008. None of that appears to matter to anyone left in the park tonight, as one of the largest crowds in Pitchfork history flocks to check out the dominant R&B performer of the last two decades. The Union Park crowd reaction isn't quite as over-the-top as that of his typical audience, but the dancing continues to escalate until the set peaks with "When a Woman's Fed Up" and the stepping songs "Happy People" and "Step in the Name of Love," accompanied by white balloons. Kelly saves "I Believe I Can Fly" for the encore, and this time white-dove balloons fill the sky. [Chicago Tribune]Pitchfork Music Festival 2013 wrapped up on Sunday (7/21) with its most hip hop heavy day, including sets from rappers El-P, Killer Mike, Lil B, and Tree, plus rap producers TNGHT and Evian Christ (who both happen to be Kanye collaborators). And not exactly rap, but in that real there were also sets from MIA and obscure up-and-comer R. Kelly. It wasn't all hip hop though. Sunday also gave us sets from Foxygen (whose singer, Sam France, continued his streak of climbing at festivals), Yo La Tengo, Waxahatchee, Autre Ne Veut, Glass Candy, and more. Pictures of the final day of the festival are in this post.

Twin Shadow @ Pitchfork 2011 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Twin Shadow is about to kick off a "True Story" tour in California that quickly hits Sasquatch before visting Chicago, Governors Ball in NYC, Texas and many other places before ending back in Cali. Twin Shadow will then take a break before playing a big, free hometown show at Central Park Summerstage with Autre Ne Veut, Elliphant and DJ Million Dollar Mano on 8/17. All dates are listed with the "True Story" explanation below.
Most of TS's tour is with Pitchfork/Swedish Grammys-approved pop star Elliphant who we mentioned headlines her only upcoming non-Twin Shadow North American date in Brooklyn at Glasslands on June 11. Tickets are still available. Openers are Heartsrevolution and Computer Magic (DJ Set).
"She's actually part of the same production family as Icona Pop, but as Elliphant, she frays Scandinavian pop precision at the edges to join up to a more global patchwork that runs from Mad Decent affiliates M.I.A. and Maluca to the junkheap magpie nest of Staff Benda Bilili." [Pitchfork]Check out the video for "Live Till I Die" below.
Autre Ne Veut, who recently played Pianos (twice), only has four upcoming shows we know about at the moment. One is with Twin Shadow at Summerstage, one is Pitchfork Festival, one is ACL, and one is in Miami. They're also all listed below...

inc. / Autre Ne Veut @ Pianos, 5/11/2013
In the cramped back room of Pianos, the workhorse LES bar where the show took place, there is no backstage or side stairway, meaning the only way to the stage is to barge your way directly through the heart of the crowd. The brothers Daniel and Andrew Aged of Inc. broke the ranks cleanly, though, transfixing audience members with the intensity of their attire long enough make their way unencumbered. The brothers, one with a shaved head, the other with slick black locks cropped on the sides and pulled into a knot on top, were dressed in full '90s all-black goth regalia, complete with asymmetrical sweaters, loose-fitting jeans and heavy boots. inc.'s music can be traced back to the '90s too, but it's rooted in the slick, sensual R&B of Playa and Jodeci rather than anything that was happening in the goth or punk scene. It's as if they stumbled into a Taye Diggs movie on their way out of Hot Topic. - [Billboard]As you may know, the Downtown Music Festival (or DTF as it was known on shirts, maybe not the best acronym) happened last weekend across NYC clubs below Houston St. One of the more packed shows was at tiny Ludlow St. spot Pianos for Inc., Autre Ne Veut and Weeknight. The sexytime R&B vibes of Autre Ne Veut and Inc. played really well back to back in such a small room. Opener Weeknight brought Phantogram-style vibes for a nice kickoff to the evening.
Inc play NYC again at Music Hall of Williamsburg on July 14. Tickets to that show go on sale Wednesday (5/15) at noon.

Autre Ne Veut @ BrooklynVegan SXSW 2013
"It was 85 degrees [Saturday] afternoon with the sun beating down hard on the pavement at Old Emo's. So the crowd at the Brooklyn Vegan day party instinctively packed into the shady spots by the stage for Autre Ne Veut's set. Arthur Ashin laid out a series of songs from Anxiety and, despite the punishing weather, put on a solid show." [Pitchfork]Delorean (Wednesday), Autre Ne Veut (Saturday), and Doldrums (Saturday) all played solid sets at BrooklynVegan day parties at SXSW this year, but sadly, at the moment only one of them has NYC shows announced. That would be Doldrums whose tour dates bring them to Mercury Lounge in May, and even sooner to 285 Kent in Brooklyn on Saturday, April 13 which is one day after they share a bill in Philly with Delorean and Autre Ne Veut. That right there is a reason to be in Pennsylvania on April 12. Tickets for the $12 Making Time show at Voyeur are still available (and Jacques Greene is on the bill too).

Austra / APTBS / the crowd
We wrapped up our stay at The Main and The Jr (aka old Emo's) with our fourth and final BrooklynVegan SXSW day party on Saturday (3/16). Unfortunately, Foxygen had to drop off at the last minute because the singer lost his voice. They would have played the outdoor stage (Pianos Stage), where we still saw sets from the arty synthpop of Empress Of, the loudest set of all of our day parties from A Place to Bury Strangers, and a super fun set from catchy UK rockers Palma Violets. Then came the sexy R&B of Autre Ne Veut, followed by a set by Austra, who were previewing expansive material from their upcoming sophomore album, Olympia. Then finally, the outdoor stage was wrapped up with a set from psychedelic pop New Zealanders Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
Inside, the show kicked off with the catchy indie pop of TEEN, followed by rockin' UK band Peace, and then three consecutive synthpop groups, Feathers, MS MR, and Doldrums. Then the show took a louder turn with an adrenaline-pumping set from White Lung, bouncy young garage punks The Orwells, and finally King Tuff.
In addition to the music, we had an interactive photo and video booth set up by Oxygen tattoo show, "Best Ink". The second season (hosted by Pete Wentz who made a surprise appearance in their booth) premieres April 3rd. Onkyo was there, sampling their new headphones which hit stores next month. mophie maker of invaluable iPhone chargers, were giving away discount cards good at their pop-up shop which was set up right across the street on Red River. We were also serving complimentary Jameson, and Zico coconut water, and free vegan queso and chips from Food For Lovers. We also had BrooklynVegan t-shirts for the first 50 people in the door, thanks to American Apparel. Also thanks to our other sponsors, Korg, Vox, Blackstar, Creative Recreation, Signazon, Zazoo, and Redigi.

Autre Ne Veut at the BrooklynVegan SXSW Saturday day party - 3/16/13
Autre Ne Veut's great new album, Anxiety has seriously escalated his career, and it caused some anticipation for his SXSW shows, which included the BrooklynVegan SXSW day party on Saturday (3/16), where I caught him. Main man Arthur Ashin is now joined by Cristi Jo from Zambri on vocals and samples and a live drummer, and the show was definitely fuller than his earlier live gigs. The unfortunate part was that it was pretty clear that "Counting" is his biggest song (that one even got some hollering from the crowd when he pushed his voice as far as it could go), but hopefully the deeper cuts from that album will get better known in time.
Big thanks to our sponsors Oxygen, Best of Ink, Onkyo, mophie, Jameson, Zico, Food For Lovers, American Apparel, Korg, Vox, Blackstar, ReDigi, Signazon, Korg, Creative Creation, and Mirrored Media, who we couldn't do the day party without. A full set of pictures from all the bands at the party is coming soon, meanwhile check out more of Autre Ne Veut from that show below...

Savages @ CMJ 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
SXSW gets underway today (3/13) in earnest, with 83,207 bands* playing SXSW this year. Trying to figure out who to see can be an overwhelming feeling. (Actually, just standing on 6th St. on Friday night is an overwhelming feeling.) Hopefully this post will give you some inspiration if you're among the throngs of people. Or maybe just some new stuff to listen to if you're not there.
Of course you could just hang out at all our day parties (our first starts at noon today!) and evening showcases, as we're really proud of our line-ups. But there are bands who we are pumped to see who aren't playing too. So here are 40 bands we're genuinely pumped to see in Austin this week. We made a Spotify playlist of all the bands (at least the ones on the service) you can stream below.
Check out our list below...
*not the actually number of showcasing bands. But it feels accurate.
This is Day 4 of four BrooklynVegan SXSW Day Parties this year...
As you know, BrooklynVegan is returning to Austin for SXSW this year and throwing four days of day parties at The Main & The Jr aka 603 Red River Street at the corner of 6th aka the old Emo's location. Those happen Wed (3/13), Thurs, Fri and Saturday (3/16). All shows are 100% FREE with RSVP
As mentioned, New York electonic artist Autre Ne Veut plays Santos Party House tonight (2/27). It's a record relase show for his new album, Anxiety, that came out this week on Mexican Summer's Software imprint and was given Best New Music status (8.5) by Pitchfork. If you haven't heard it yet, you can stream it on Spotify.
Tonight's show -- and the rest of ANV's tour -- is with Montreal's Majical Cloudz who are recent signees to Matador. Their Turns Turns Turns EP is out now and you can watch the video for the title track below. Tickets are still available for tonight's all-ages Santos show at the door, but if you'd like to go for free we've got a pair to give away. Details, video and streams are below.
Autre Ne Veut in Brooklyn in 2011 (more by Erez Avissar)
After taking about a month off the road, Majical Cloudz will head out on another North American run with Autre Ne Veut, who they played with in Brooklyn this past December. That tour kicks off in late February in Philly and ends in Austin for SXSW. It hits NYC along the way on February 27 at Santos Party House. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Autre Ne Veut will release his much anticipated new album, Anxiety, on February 26 (instead of the initial release date, February 12) via Software. The video for that album's single, "Counting," and a list of all dates are below...
Small Black at Brooklyn Museum in June (more by Jessica Amaya)
Today we've posted year-end lists by Andy from Cake Shop, Mark Eitzel, and James from Veronica Falls. Now we've got one from Josh Kolenik of Brooklyn chillwavers Small Black giving us a rundown of 12 singles he loved in 2012.
Based on Small Black's own sound, it's got an unsurprising amount of indie pop, R&B, electronics, and Young Chop-produced hip hop. But he also sneaks in the inclusion of some vintage-sounding psych folk courtesy of Jessica Pratt. Check out his full list of songs, along with streams and/or videos for each track, below...
Mykki Blanco at MHOW in November (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
NYC rapper Mykki Blanco, who puts on a hell of a show, plays in the area pretty often and as mentioned, you can catch Mykki TONIGHT (12/7) at 285 Kent with Autre Ne Veut, Oneohtrix Point Never, and the recently added Majical Cloudz (more on them in a minute). Tickets for tonight's show are still available.
But if you can't make it tonight, or just want to see Mykki again in the near future, you're in luck because it's just been announced that the rapper will play Mercury Lounge on January 16. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, December 14 at noon.
Mykki Blanco is also featured in the new video for for Autre Ne Veut's great new single, "Counting," off of his upcoming album, Anxiety. You can watch that video below, and here's to hoping they join each other on stage at 285 Kent tonight.
Majical Cloudz, who were added to tonight's 285 Kent show, began picking up speed after appearing on Grimes' album, Visions, and touring with her. They recently released their Turns Turns Turns EP via Arbutus, which made Braids' and Blue Hawaii's top 10 LPs of 2012 lists. You can stream the title track from that EP and another, "What That Was," below.
Streams and video are below.

Autre Ne Veut in Brooklyn in 2011 (more by Erez Avissar)
Autre Ne Veut (aka Brooklyn's Arthur Ashin) has been putting out material for a couple years now, and it's always been solid but he's become more memorable for his, um, provocative cover art than the music itself. That's no longer the case on his new single, "Counting," which will appear on his new album, Anxiety, which is due out on February 12 via Software. The new track brings together the kind of art pop and R&B that we've seen recently from How to Dress Well and d'Eon, and it all culminates in a pretty explosive chorus. You can stream that track, and check out its tracklist and cover art below.
Mykki Blanco has been touring with Death Grips and recently played Music Hall of Williamsburg.

Holy Other in the UK in June (via Rachael Smith)
Manchester producer Holy Other, who released the excellent debut LP, Held, back in August and was in NYC earlier this month for Warm Up at MoMA PS1, two shows with Amon Tobin as part of their ongoing tour, and a secret show at 285 Kent, will return to NYC for a FIXED show at Le Poisson Rouge on October 20. The show falls on the last night of CMJ, though it doesn't appear to be part of the festival. The bill at LPR is rounded out by a solid lineup of Vatican Shadow, Autre Ne Veut, Orthy, and FIXED regulars JDH & Dave P. Tickets for that show are on sale now. After the NYC show, Holy Other will head across the pond to support Beach House on their European tour.
Speaking of FIXED shows at Le Poisson Rouge, the previously discussed live John Talabot feat. Pional show with Blondes happens this Thursday (9/27). There are also FIXED shows at the Manhattan venue on October 6 with Tiger & Woods, Bicep, Jacques Renault, and Paul Raffale; and November 3 with The Magician and Mighty Mouse. Tickets for all of those shows are on sale now.
The Magician used to be a member of Aeroplane, which is now the solo project of Vito De Luca. Aeroplane plays a FIXED show at HIghline Ballroom on October 5 with Catz 'n Dogz. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
An updated list of Holy Other dates and a stream of Held's title track are below.

One of my two personal most-anticipated Warm Up at MoMA PS1 lineups goes down this Saturday (8/11) with sets from Photek, Evian Christ, Howse, Shlohmo, and Autre Ne Veut. Tickets for Saturday's show are still available. You can stream/download Shlohmo's FADER/MoMA PS1 mix for this week's installment below.
Meanwhile, Howse (aka Nathaniel Oak), who released the great footwork-meets-witch house ("footwitch"? or maybe housework...) Lay Hollow EP on Tri Angle earlier this year, will be arriving in NYC a bit earlier to play a late show at Cameo Gallery on Friday (8/10 with the always great Octo Octa and The Range. $5 tickets for that show will be available at the door. Howse also made hand painted, hand stamped CDRs which will be available at both of his NYC this shows this weekend, or if you contact him via email. You can stream the Howse track, "VBS," below.
Speaking of artists playing Warm Up this weekend, as hinted at and now confirmed, Evian Christ will in fact open both NYC shows on Purity Ring's upcoming tour. Those shows include 9/21 at Bowery Ballroom and 9/22 at MHOW. Both shows are now sold out. Headaches, who made his US live debut opening for Purity Ring at LPR last month, is also on both shows.
A list of all Howse dates, and all streams are below.
