'70s cult soul artist Shuggie Otis is back in town this week for two shows, both of which are free. On Thursday (8/8) he'll play a lunchtime show (noon) at Metrotech Commons, which is the finale of BAM's 2013 R&B Festival. Then on Sunday (8/11) he'll play Central Park Summerstage with Jose James and Hiatus Kaiyote. That show starts at 7 PM.
Speaking of, Hiatus Kaiyote are from Melbourne, Australia and make laid back, jazzy R&B/soul with maybe just a little trip hop in there too. Questlove and Erykah Badu are fans and the band's new, very listable album, Tawk Tomahawk, is streamable in full, below. The album's final track, "Nakkamara," features Q-Tip and is probably the record's standout cut. Hiatus Kaiyote will also play a headlining show while here on Monday (8/12) at Knitting Factory. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
And speaking of Q-Tip, his #Offline party happens tonight (8/7) and every Wednesday at Output's Panther Room. The party starts at 10 PM and tickets are $10.
Meanwhile, Jose James (who plays the Summerstage show) also has other dates, including a just-announced NYC show with FaltyDL happening on November 22 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show are currently on AmEx presale, and a general on-sale begins Friday (8/9) at noon. All of his dates are listed below.

James Blake @ T5, 5/8/2013
Last night's sold-out, all-ages show at Terminal 5 featured a musician who knows exactly what he's doing, but a crowd that didn't really know how to respond. The average music fan might only be familiar with Blake's self-titled debut record, and his most recent Overgrown. Both albums aren't necessarily what you'd put on at a dance party, but are rather made for those moments when you find yourself awake in the middle of the night, sitting on your couch, unable to sleep, staring at a lit candle or playing video games. - [Village Voice]After appearing on Letterman the night before, James Blake's tour with Falty DL hit Terminal 5 lat night (5/7), the first of two stops at the Westside venue for the pair. They'll hit T5 again on Thursday (5/ 9), While that show is sold-out, you can still get tickets to see both of them DJing at the Museum of Natural History on Friday (5/10).
More pictures from Terminal 5 are below.

Back in May, drill & bass master Squarepusher announced a North American tour which included a TBA NYC show set to happen on October 30. Well it turns out the NYC show will actually be on November 1 and it happens at Terminal 5 with a great list of openers; Bonobo (DJ), Holy Fuck, and Mount Kimbie. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/29) at noon with an AmEx presale starting today (6/27) at noon. All Squarepusher dates are listed below.
Squarepusher released his new album, Ufabulum, in May and it's a pretty solid one. It opens with "4001," which is just about the only song that sounds like classic Squarepusher, and is then followed by, "Unreal Square," which brings in a bit of brostep bass wobble. The rest of the album sees Squarepusher diving into nutty jazz fusion and unstoppable breakbeats. You can stream three of its tracks below.
Speaking of Mount Kimbie, they've signed to Warp, the label which Squarepusher also calls home, and currently at work on their second album which will be released on the label. The Terminal 5 show appears to be their only announced North American date at the moment.
Holy Fuck and Bonobo will be in NY even sooner for Camp Bisco, which goes down from July 12-14 at Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, NY. They'll be joining a lineup which includes Tycho, Simian Mobile Disco, Skrillex, Amon Tobin ISAM, Big Boi, Crystal Castles, Yacht, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, Shigeto, FaltyDL, Thundercat, and more. Tickets for the festival are still available. The full lineup is listed below.
In related news, You can also catch Holy Fuck frontman Brian Borcherdt in NYC right after Bisco with his new project, Dusted, who play Glasslands on July 15. Tickets for that show are still available.

Bonobo (aka Simon Green) released Black Sands Remixed, a remix album of his 2010 LP, yesterday (2/13) in Europe via Ninja Tune, and will release it next Tuesday (2/21) in North America. The album features remixes by Machinedrum, FaltyDL, Mike Slott, Mark Pritchard, and others. Check out the video for Machinedrum's remix of "Eyesdown" below, along with the album art and tracklist.
Bonobo is about to kick off a run of DJ dates in the US (none in NYC), followed by live dates in Australia this March, before returning to the US at the end of that month to present "A Night of Black: 'Black Sands Remixed' Album Launch" at Le Poisson Rouge on March 29, where Bonobo will DJ along with appearances by album remixers Machinedrum, FaltyDL, and Mike Slott. Tickets are on sale now.

FaltyDl's soundcloud page also lists that he opens for Matthew Dear at Bowery Ballroom (3/2) with Blondes (live) and Helado Negro, but that is NOT TRUE. Regardless, tickets for that show are still available.

FaltyDL at PS1 in July (more by Vincent Cornelli)
One day after Sepalcure plays Cameo Gallery and a day before the venue hosts a Sub Swara New Year's Eve party (details HERE), FaltyDL will play Cameo Gallery on December 30 with Dave Q, Kuhn, Rimar, MAUI, and DJ Discophantom. If you buy advance tickets online for the Sepalcure show, you will receive half-priced tickets for the FaltyDL show (which doesn't appear to have a ticket link of its own).
FaltyDL released a ton of stuff this year, including a remix of Sepalcure's track "Love Pressure." Stream that remix below and check out a list of every release FaltyDL was a part of.
Ital, who recently played 285 Kent with Blondes, and who has a new LP coming out on Planet Mu in February, was added to the Sepalcure show, along with Heathered Pearls. And as mentioned, Machinedrum (who is one half of Sepalcure) also plays.

FaltyDL at MoMA PS1 in July (more by Vincent Cornelli)
New York dubstepper FaltyDL (aka Drew Lustman), who just opened for Radiohead when they were in town, has signed to Ninja Tune and will release his debut EP for the label, Atlantis, on November 14. The EP will be the followup to the You Stand Uncertain LP, which was released earlier this year. Some samples of the EP's tracks are available at Ninja Tune's site, and while I haven't heard the whole thing, these samples are indicating something great. The EP's got warmer synths and harder snares than You Stand Uncertain, and while that album was great, the new material shows FaltyDL beginning to develop more of his own identity as a producer. You can pre-order the EP at the Ninja Tune webstore and check out the artwork and tracklist below.
FaltyDL contributed a remix of Holy Ghost!'s "Hold My Breath" for the release of the single which drops October 17. Other remixers include Tiger & Woods and Cosmic Kids. Holy Ghost! has a tour coming up that hits NYC on October 29 at Bowery Ballroom and November 26 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The Bowery Ballroom show is sold out but tickets are still on sale for the MHOW show.
He'll also appear on the new LP from Zed Bias, Biasonic Hotsauce - Birth of the Nanocloud, which comes out November 1 via Tru Thoughts. Mark Pritchard, whose Africa Hitech project recently announced a LPR show, also appears on that album. You can download the FaltyDL-featuring "Lucid Dreams" at the top of this post.
Biz Markie also DJs at Brooklyn Bowl tonight (10/13) (tickets), and Questlove, who usually DJs the venue on Thursdays, will DJ the Little Dragon show at Terminal 5 on Friday (10/14), which Javelin and Donn T also play. That show is sold out.
Speaking of Radiohead, Thom Yorke's DJ set from their record release party for TKOL RMX 1234567 which streamed online yesterday, is now available to stream at Boiler Room's website and can be downloaded for free on iTunes.

If you were there, how long did you wait to get inside to see Radiohead play their first of two shows at Roseland Ballroom in NYC last night? I arrived at 8:00 and made it in around 9:00. The line for will call check in (all tickets were will call) wrapped around the entire square block. The end of the line was all the way back at the venue, and had apparently been that way since doors opened. If you didn't have a ticket in advance, did you manage to get in? Lots of people were walking up and down the line with signs explaining why they deserved to get your extra if you had one.
Four Tet was on when I finally got through the doors, but without a good spot, and with all the loud crowd noise, it was hard to focus on the opener. Roseland was packed. Radiohead, complete with 2nd bald drummer, took the stage a bit after 10 and played till after midnight. The concert itself was as special as (any Radiohead fan) expected, but my highlight was definitely the second of two encores which did not seem planned. Nobody in the giant venue (relatively speaking) was ready for the band to leave after they finished with "Morning Mr. Magpie" from the new "King of Limbs" album. The club toyed with turning the house lights back on, house music came on, and the crew even seemed to be breaking down. It could have been an act to make an encore seem real for once. Regardless, it worked and the boys returned to the stage, now all dressed down and in black, to the loudest cheers yet. And this time they closed the night off right, with the one-two punch that was "Street Spirit" and "Nude."
Earlier in the set they played a bit of "The One I Love" which was a nice little tribute to the recently-departed R.E.M. The full setlist is below.
Though I can hardly understand Thom when he speaks, he seemed in a good mood. He asked if we saw the movie "Inside Job" and then I think he said something about nothing being different. He mentioned it was nice to not be sitting around a TV studio, a reference to the fact that their NYC vacation so far has included appearances on both SNL and the Colbert Report. The merch included special t-shirts made just for the shows (pics below).
Radiohead do it again at Roseland tonight (9/29). More pictures, some great videos, and the setlist from last night, below...

When I walked into MoMA PS1 on Saturday (7/9) for their second Warm Up of the 2011 season, Bronze were about halfway through their set. I'd never heard the group before but they won me over with their dark, psychedelic atmospheres and pummeling drum patterns, and were an interesting contrast to the dancier acts that followed. After Bronze's set, NYC DJ FaltyDL delivered a DJ set that set the mood for the rest of day's event. Though he's from New York, his beats are well-versed in UK garage and dubstep, and fit in really well with the two UK acts that came after.
The highlight of the day for me was seeing SBTRKT, whose excellent self titled debut LP dropped two weeks ago. He played a live set with guest vocalist Sampha, who contributed vocals to the album. As anticipated, both musicians came out in tiki masks. Like many dubstep producers are starting to do, SBTRKT embraces much more of a pop feel on his album, and many of the tracks are centered pretty heavily around vocals. However, unlike some of his contemporaries, his material still translates well onto the dancefloor. SBTRKT and Sampha would focus on key melodies in the songs, and then dive into extended mixes that got the crowd moving. The majority of the set consisted of the album's Sampha-fronted cuts, though they did play a chopped up version of the Little Dragon-featured "Wildfire." Drake didn't show up to rap over the track like he did in Toronto the night before, but SBTRKT did throw his verse into the mix.
Directly after SBTRKT and Sampha walked off stage, blown out avant-sax lines started spurting out of the PA speakers, which meant hidden behind the massive crowd of dancers, none other than Four Tet just began DJing. After the jazzy opener, Four Tet dropped one of his heavy trademark beats and went off into a killer set that sent the crowd into more of a frenzy than they'd been in all day.
Unfortunately, Matthewdavid, who I had been looking forward to seeing, had to cancel his set. SBTRKT was also scheduled to DJ an afterparty at Coco66, but the Brooklyn venue got shut down before SBTRKT could play. Four Tet did play his afterparty set at Marcy Hotel though.

A night of bass in all its wide-ranging permutations! MODESELEKTOR bring their hotly anticipated Modeselektion night to the Metropolis. The "no holds barred" German duo will be DJing alongside their selected guests, including mysterious industrial-dubstep duo ANSTAM, New York garage revivalist FALTYDL, Montreal bass producer JACQUESGREENE, and high-end electro maven SIRIUSMO.The June 3rd event at Webster Hall has almost the same lineup, but includes KRSN instead of JACQUESGREENE and FALTYDL. Both events will have Pfadfinderei Visuals. Unfortunately, the NYC show is also a Friday night "Girls & Boys" party at Webster Hall. Fortuntunately, that means it's only $5 with RSVP if you arrive before midnight.
Modeselektion, the night, is branded to match Modeselektion the mixtape series. Modeselektion Vol. 1 was released on November 5, via Monkeytown, and the tracklist (which you can see in full below), includes Siriusmo. Falty DL appears on Modeselektion Vol. 01 - Bonus Tracks & Versions which was released in December.
