Beacon at Mercury Lounge - 5/4/13
Brooklyn electronic pop duo Beacon released their new album, The Ways We Separate, last week (4/30) and celebrated it with a release show on Saturday (5/4) at Mercury Lounge, a one-off before their mini spring tour, which begins later this month. Support at the show came from Braille (aka Praveen Sharma aka 1/2 of Sepalcure) and Montreal's Solar Year. Pictures from the show are in this post.
Solar Year next plays NYC as an opener for the previously discussed Actress show at Cameo on June 6. That show is also with Gobby, who you can see sooner opening for Majical Cloudz at Glasslands (5/21) (tickets) and at UNO's free Red Bull Music Academy showcase on May 28 at Le Baron. Tickets for the Actress, Solar Year, Gobby show at Cameo are still available.

Sepalcure (aka Machinedrum and Braille) released their impressive self titled debut LP back in 2011 and they're set to follow it with a new EP, Make You, on April 15 via Hotflush. From the sounds of the EP sampler, which you can listen to below, Make You does a pretty good job of picking up where the ambient textures and garage rhythms of the full length left off. In addition to the EP sampler, you can also listen to a full stream of the EP's title track below.
Sepalcure will be celebrating the new EP with a release party in Brooklyn at Output on April 25. The show is being opened by Jimmy Edgar, who collaborates with Machinedrum in JETS. Maybe we'll get some JETS material at the show too? Tickets for that show are on sale now. Show flyer below.

Dauwd (photo by Jasmin Bell)
UK producer Dauwd spent a chunk of 2011 releasing delicate future garage singles and he's now set to release his debut EP, Heat Division, on March 12 via Ghostly (US) and Pictures (UK/EU). The first taste of that EP is its closing track, "And," which sees Dauwd moving more towards deep house and away from the future garage of his previous singles. It's got a harder edge than his earlier work, but pays just as much attention to detail. You can stream it, and check out the EP's album art and tracklist below.
Dauwd will be coming to the US in March for SXSW, and while he's here, he'll stop in NYC for a show on March 7 at Glasslands with Chrome Sparks and Braille (aka Praveen Sharma, aka 1/2 of Sepalcure). Tickets for the NYC show are on sale now.
A list of all dates (including a post-SXSW show in San Francisco with Com Truise, Shigeto, and Heathered Pearls), song stream, album art and tracklist below...
Sepalcure at LPR - 12/30/12 (via Heathered Pearls)
Sepalcure (aka Machinedrum and Braille) just played a NYC show at Le Poisson Rouge (pictured above) right before 2012 wrapped up (12/30) after their tour with Shlohmo came to a close. Machinedrum stuck around for one more NYC show last week before heading over to Europe, but Braille is still around and will play a NYC show this Friday (1/11) at Cameo with Archie Pelago, Contakt, Nooka Jones, and Enoe. Admission for that show is $8 at the door or $5 with RSVP.
The show is a release party for Cambio, the compilation album by Percussion Lab which features songs by Sepalcure, Braille, Machinedrum, Shigeto, Daedelus (who's touring soon), Mux Mool, and more. You can stream that compilation in its entirety, along with a few other Braille tracks, below.
Sepalcure (aka Machinedrum and Braille) and Shlohmo are going on a three-date audio/visual tour this December. That tour unfortunately doesn't come to NYC, but Sepalcure have tacked on a NYC show happening right afterwards on December 30 at Le Poisson Rouge. Machinedrum of Sepalcure will open the show, along with Brooklyn Bass DJs. Tickets for the show are on sale now.
Meanwhile, you can catch both Shlohmo and Braille of Sepalcure in NYC at Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival this weekend. Braille plays Cameo Gallery tonight (11/9) at 1 AM (so technically Saturday) and Shlohmo plays Public Assembly on Saturday (11/10) at 1 AM (so technically Sunday). Festival passes are still available.
As mentioned on BV Chicago, Machinedrum recently teamed up with Jimmy Edgar to release a self titled EP under the moniker, Jets. Machinedrum also recently dropped a new song called "Diablo." You can listen to that and some cuts from the Jets EP, along with a list of all Sepalcure dates, below.
