Into The Wild

NYC DJ FaltyDL has a new album, titled In The Wild, coming out August 12. FaltyDL had already sort-of premiered a song from the album on a subway, and released the full version soon after. Now he's shared a second track, "Some Jazz Shit," which you can stream below. He's also scheduled some shows, including a NYC date happening at Verboten on July 12 with Alix Perez, Starkey, Star Eyes, and Doctor Jeep. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

In addition to the new song, FaltyDL is following in the steps of Xiu Xiu and premiering some new videos on PornHub. The videos are called the "Into the Wild" series, and they're collaborations with UK artist Chris Shen that are meant to accompany the upcoming album. The most recent video that premiered features music from the track "Greater Antilles Part 2," another selection off the new album. Watch that below.

Woman's Hour

UK group Woman's Hour will release their debut album, Conversations, on July 15 via Secretly Canadian. Like their previous singles, the band's ethereal, melancholic soul is in icy focus on the LP. Check out videos for the album's singles "Conversations" and "Her Ghost" as well as remix streams of both (by Fort Romeau and FaltyDL, respectively) below.

Woman's Hour, last here in March, will be on tour this fall with two stops in NYC: October 2 at Mercury Lounge and October 3 at Rough Trade. Tickets to both shows go on sale Friday (6/20) at noon, with an AmEx presale for the Mercury Lounge show starting today (6/18) at noon.

All dates are listed, along with videos and remixes, below...

Bonobo sold out Terminal 5 in 2013 (more by Adela Laconte)
Bonobo

The mostly-EDM electronic music festival Electric Zoo (not to be confused with Electric Daisy Carnival which just happened) announced the initial lineup earlier this month, and have now announced a ton more artists who are playing their Labor Day weekend NYC festival on Randall's Island (tip: avoid at all costs). Check out who they announced, by day and stage, below.

New on the lineup is DJ set by Bonobo whose growing tour also includes Glastonbury, The Hudson Project fest, a DJ set tour with FaltyDL, and a headlining live show at Central Park Summerstage on July 13 (free). All dates are listed below.

His set at E Zoo is at the least unbearable stage announced so far, the Riverside stage on Friday (8/29) which also includes Gesaffelstein (DJ), Jamie xx, Gorgon City, Tensnake and more.

The Summerstage show is with Bonobo's July tourmate Odesza, as well as Cibo Matto who will play Warm Up at MoMA PS1 one day earlier. Those are Cibo Matto's only two U.S. shows at the moment. They recently played in Brooklyn Bridge Park. All of their international dates are listed below.

Last we talked about FaltyDL, we had a preview of a new track off a new album. It was only a clip and not great quality though. That full song and album details have since been released, and you can listen to that song with those details below.

All dates, the FaltyDL song, the Electric Zoo lineup and more, below...

FaltyDL

Recently in a NYC subway, British artist Chris Shen filmed a member of local dance group W.A.F.F.L.E. doing their thing in the middle of a moving Q train. Video of that has surfaced online and can be watched below without fear of getting accidentally kicked in the face. The song they're dancing to is actually an unreleased track by NYC producer FaltyDL (who you can spot watching them on the right by the door). Check it out below.

Meanwhile, FaltyDL also has a number of international dates coming up as well as a North American tour with Bonobo in September. Unfortunately no NYC shows scheduled for now, but it shouldn't be too long before he plays his hometown again. All dates are listed, with that subway video, below...

Tweens at BV-SXSW 2014 (more by Tim Griffin)
Tweens

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

The Dillinger Escape Plan, Trash Talk, Retox, Shining @ Webster Hall
It's a killer night for heavy music at Webster Hall with spazzy metalcore rippers The Dillinger Escape Plan, the insane Trash Talk who will surely make at least a portion of the crowd very wild, Justin Pearson's (The Locust) new punky band Retox, and Norwegian Blackjazz band Shining.

Rocket from the Crypt, The So So Glos @ The Bell House
Rocket From the Crypt is one of the great John Reis' many bands (also of Drive Like Jehu, Hot Snakes, Sultans, Night Marchers, etc), and their mix of '90s punk and horn-filled rock 'n' roll swagger resulted in a handful of great records before their breakup in the mid 2000s. Now they're back on a reunion tour, and tonight's their second of two NYC shows this week. So So Glos are worth catching as well.

Tweens, Shellshag, Scully, Bennio Qwerty @ Death by Audio
Tweens make rowdy, extremely catchy garage punk that's good recorded but really comes across in a live setting. The Cincinnati band will be joined by solid local support from veteran DIY duo Shellshag, Scully (the new band from 3 members of The Splinters), and rage rock trio Bennio Qwerty (ex-North Highlands).

Kelela, Jubilee (DJ), Rizzla (DJ), special guests @ Rough Trade NYC
While the "alt-R&B" tag is getting very popular, and it's questionable how much of that stuff really deserves the "alt" prefix, Kelela definitely does. She works with various underground producers (mostly of the Night Slugs/Fade to Mind crew) and really pushes the boundaries of the genre. Tonight's her first of two sold out shows at Rough Trade.

Carsick Cars, Hamish Kilgour, White+, Cover Band @ Baby's All Right
Beijing noise rockers Carsick Cars tone down the squall a bit on their new album, letting their VU side rise to the top. The band are wrapping up their tour with a couple NYC shows, the first being tonight. The Clean's Hamish Kilgour (who produced Carsick Cars new album) opens, as do another band from Bejiing, duo White.

Hurray for the Riff Raff @ Lincoln Center (American Songbook)
The American Songbook series continues tonight with Hurray for the Riff Raff, who may not have the best band name, but do make great unpolished country, which takes much of its influence from over half a century ago.

Rone, Aquarian, Ital @ Glasslands
Paris/Berlin producer makes electronic music that leans more towards the cerebral side than something you would dance to. Good local and likeminded support too.

Bonobo (DJ), FaltyDL, option4, Birocratic @ Stage 48
Bonobo's live band continues to get huge (they sold out Terminal 5 their last time here), but tonight he returns on his own to DJ, and local producer FaltyDL makes this bill pretty strong too.

Tomas Barfod (DJ), Great Dane, Silent Rider @ The Studio at Webster Hall
Another DJ headliner tonight is Tomas Barfod, the Danish producer who recently signed to Secretly Canadian.

Cosmonauts, Black Sea @ Mercury Lounge
OC garage rockers Cosmonauts have grown more rhythmic and psych of late, venturing into near Madchester territory. This is the the second NYC date on their tour with Black Sea.

Dub Thompson @ Pianos
California's Dub Thompson will release their debut album in June via Dead Oceans. We've only heard one song of theirs -- the funky first single, "Dog Races," which is a little reminiscent of mid-'90s Beck or Soul Coughing. We're intrigued. This is a late show, with doors at midnight.

Neotantrik featuring Suzanne Ciani, Pietnastka @ Lincoln Center (Unsound Fest)
Unsound Festival continues tonight at David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center with the first-ever collaboration between Neotantrik (Demdike Stare's Sean Canty and Andy Votel) and electronic music pioneer Suzanne Ciani. Pietnastka opens, and this show is totally FREE.

Kataklysm, Aborted, Pyrexia, Winter Nights @ Saint Vitus
Arena-style death metal gets crammed into a pocket-sized package at this Vitus gig. Aborted and Kataklysm usually play package bills at big clubs; catch their blast-heavy schticks up close and personal here. Long-running Long Islanders Pyrexia keep the momentum going after returning to the fray with last year's Feast of Iniquity.

Art Garfunkel @ State Theatre
Maybe Simon wrote the songs, but Garfunkel's voice was a key part of that legendary duo's sound too, and you can catch him on his own at 3 NYC-area shows this week, this being the second.

Champagne Jerry @ Joe's Pub
Ad-Rock collaborator Champagne Jerry continues his album rollout and monthly Joe's Pub shows tonight.

Miley Cyrus, Icona Pop, Sky Ferreira @ Izod Center
For better or for worse, Sky Ferreira and Icona Pop have certainly gained some indie cred, which could potentially make it seem strange that they're touring with Miley. But if you live in a universe where "You're Not the One" and "I Love It" sound out of place on a playlist next to "Wrecking Ball," you live in a different universe than us. This is their first of three NYC-area dates, with Barclays Center happening this Saturday and Nassau Coliseum later in the month.

The Kevin Drew (of Broken Social Scene) show that would have happened at Bowery Ballroom tonight was postponed to April 28.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

Warpaint at SXSW 2014 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Warpaint

There are a lot of post-SXSW artists swinging through town tonight, making for show overload. You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Cut Copy, Jessy Lanza, Turkish Prison @ Terminal 5
Cut Copy bring their trusty synth pop over from Australia for a sold-out two-night run at Terminal 5, beginning tonight. If you're going, don't miss Hyperdub-signed downtempo pop singer Jessy Lanza, who was pretty impressive last week at SXSW.

Warpaint, Cate Le Bon @ Webster Hall
Warpaint's second album is a slow burn, more about vibe than obvious singles, but the record has many sultry charms. They're very good live too. If you're attending this sold-out show don't miss the wonderful Cate Le Bon who opens.

The War On Drugs, TEEN, Sore Eros @ MHOW
The War on Drugs sound better than ever on their new album, Lost in the Dream, which takes the sound they honed on 2011's Slave Ambient and expands on it. Tonight they wrap up their sold-out three-night run in NYC.

How To Dress Well, Forest Swords @ Rough Trade
R&B singer/songwriter How to Dress Well recently released a new single, "Words I Don't Remember," which sounded pretty promising that he only continues to get better. He's in NYC tonight for this sold out Rough Trade NYC show, which is the venue's first night open after having closed for months (but the second show -- Rathborne plays an early show at 7:30). Psychedelic beatmaker Forest Swords opens tonight and he's worth catching too.

Ex Hex, Andrew Cedermark @ Mercury Lounge
Ex Hex is the newest project of Mary Timony (Wild Flag, Helium, Autoclave), and from seeing them at SXSW and CMJ, it sounds like Mary is still churning out great songs over 20 years into her career. This is their second of two NYC shows this week.

Big Ups, Roomrunner, Greys, Kal Marks @ Shea Stadium
This is a NYC show for recent Carpark signees, Greys, on their way back home from SXSW to Toronto. The METZ-like punks will be joined by a solid local-ish lineup that includes NYC caustic post-hardcore band Big Ups, Baltimore grunge lovers Roomrunner, and Boston indie rockers Kal Marks.

Anamanaguchi, Maxo, Awkwafina @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar offers weekends of local artisan shopping, gourmet eats, beer and wine, ping pong, black light minigolf and music all under one Greenpoint roof. Tonight's musical entertainment is headlined by hyperactive 8-bit pop band Anamanaguchi.

The Clientele, Versus, Barbara Manning, The Saturday People @ The Bell House
he good folks at Chickfactor throw another birthday party at the Bell House, with lots of hand-picked bands both old and new. Tonight features a the first show in nine years from the classic Strange Geometry line-up of The Clientele, plus indie rock vets Versus, onetime SF Seals singer Barbara Manning and DC pop vets The Saturday People.

The Body, Theologian, Couch Slut @ Saint Vitus
The Body tour pretty constantly and their noisy sludge never gets old. Tonight they return to Saint Vitus for another show here with Theologian and Couch Slut.

Woman's Hour, Jenny Hval, Future Of What @ Glasslands
This London four-piece have been together since 2011, and over the course of a handful of singles have carved out an identifiable sound: chilled-out pop, heavy on synths but strictly slow-dance material. Comparisons to The xx are not entirely off-mark, but the quartet aren't quite that minimal. Having just played SXSW, they're in NYC for two shows, this being the second. If you're going tonight, don't miss Jenny Hval, who brings over her terrifically strange art pop all the way from Norway.

Fat White Family @ BV SXSW (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Fat Whites

Fat White Family, Shilpa Ray, Vaadat Charigim, Memo @ Pianos
Hide the children! The UK's sleezy, depraved rock band have hit NYC after leaving their stink on Austin at SXSW. They really are a "must see live" band, and this is your first of three chances here to do so. Tonight's an early-ish show (FWF are on at 10 PM) with Israeli shoegazers Vaadat Charigim and local hellion Shilpa Ray. That's a good show!

Shellshag, Brick Mower, Ben Snakepit, Pity Party @ Acheron
It's a great show at Acheron tonight with local DIY vets Shellshag, their punky Don Giovanni labelmates Brick Mower, Austin zinester Ben Snakepit, and ex-The Measure [sa] punks Pity Party.

The Suzan, Clinical Trials, Fielded, Psychic Reality @ Death by Audio
There's some good local music on this bill, including indie pop band The Suzan and electronic pop singer/producer Fielded.

Vulture Shit, Mannequin Pussy, Gym Shorts, Big Neck Police @ Emet
NYC punks Mannequin Pussy have been a regular on the local live scene for a while, but this is their first hometown show since announcing their signing to Tiny Engines (Cayetana, The Hotelier). Also of note on this bill is local guitar-less punks Vulture Shit.

Tanks Amigo, Christines, Univers, Doubting Thomas Cruise Control @ Cake Shop
Spanish band Univers make a reverby sound not too far off from Girls Names or Crystal Stilts; members of CS are part of Tanks Amigo who play their first show in two years; and Christines is the very Swervedriver-y new band from Andy Burr of Woven Bones.

The xx @ Park Avenue Armory
The xx continue their run of 25 shows at the Park Avenue Armory which run through March 29. Each show is extremely intimate (holds 40 people) and very sold out.

The Allman Brothers Band @ Beacon Theatre
Pioneers of jam bands, and progenitors of blues and southern rock, The Allman Brothers continue their multi-night run at Beacon Theatre tonight.

Axxa/Abraxas, Donovan Blanc, Anika (DJ set) @ Baby's All Right
Ben Asbury made the new Axxa / Abraxas album with Jarvis Taveniere from Woods, and you can definitely hear some of his band in Axxa/Abraxas -- the folky psych-pop and occasional falsetto vocals. Tonight's his first NYC show and also features the mysterious Donovan Blanc, plus a DJ from German singer Anika.

FaltyDL, Teengirl Fantasy, Huerco S, Weird Magic DJ set @ Baby's All Right
The late show at Baby's tonight is a dancey one with three of NYC's finest beatmakers.

NO, Reuben and the Dark, The Darcys @ Cameo Gallery
All three of these bands are on the Canadian label Arts & Crafts, and their joint tour is in NYC for two shows, this being the first. We're partial to The Darcys who have been known to cover whole albums by Steely Dan.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

Nosaj Thing in Chicago earlier this month (more by Brigid Gallagher)
Nosaj Thing

Three excellent electronic musicians, Prefuse 73, Nosaj Thing, and FaltyDL, are set to head out on a short North American tour this winter. That tour hits NYC on January 30 at Output for the venue's weekly INPUT party. Tickets for that show are available here and here. All dates are listed below.

Nosaj thing just wrapped up a tour with James Blake that we caught in NYC and Chicago. James was supposed to return to North America for a few Texas dates in March, but he just had to cancel those.

Hiatus Kaiyote
HK

'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.

German producer DJ Koze, who released Amygdala, an excellent guest-filled album with Caribou, Apparat, Matthew Dear, Milosh (of Rhye) and more, this year, will play an "extended set" at Blkmarket's daytime/night time party at Output on August 10. That party also includes sets from John Roberts (live), Carsten Jost, Taimur & Fahad, and Ostrich. Tickets for that one are on sale now. You can stream Amygdala in its entirety below.

On August 9, jazzy UK beatmaker Floating Points will be teaming up with NYC's FaltyDL for an Output show. Tickets available on Resident Advisor and Ticketfly.

Hardcourage

FaltyDL (aka NYC producer Drew Lustman) released his third full length album, Hardcourage, last week/month (1/22) via Ninja Tune. For the most part, he's ditched the darker, harder edged UK bass of his last album, in favor of a brighter, wider sound that works great with the album's cover art (above). Friendly Fires' Ed Macfarlane lends his vocals to the track "She Sleeps," and though the rest of the album tends to stay away from vocals, it still packs plenty of other pop moments. You can stream the album in its entirety HERE and watch the video for album single, "Straight & Arrow," below.

FaltyDL just played a Mister Saturday Night party in NYC last week, and he'll play another local show TONIGHT (2/1) at Cameo Gallery with the impressive UK producer Addison Groove and Max Pearl. Tickets for tonight's show are available.

The FaltyDL video and a list of all upcoming dates below...

Jacques Renault
Jacques Renault

Pitchfork posted a story yesterday on The New Electronic Brooklyn Underground, where they highlighted the thriving dance parties, labels, and producers that have been coming up in Brooklyn for a few years now and have been experiencing even greater success lately. Some of what they highlighted, like record label UNO and especially their artist Mykki Blanco, have been working their way up so much, they may not even be able to be considered "underground" anymore.

Mykki Blanco is also part of NYC's rising underground rap scene, and along with Angel Haze, CJ Fly, Kirk Knight, and The Underachievers, Mykki is being featured in Spit Gold Under An Empire, a new documentary on the NY rap scene directed by Montreal's Emily Kai Bock, who directed Grimes' "Oblivion" video (via FACT). You can watch the trailer video below.

But back to the electronic stuff. UNO is also responsible for putting out releases by other great artists like Jacques Greene, CFCF, Fatima Al Qadiri, Arca, Gobby, and more. Jacques Greene, who resides in Montreal, is on tour of the US now and he'll be in NYC for a show on February 9 at 88 Palace with Dark Disco and Martyn. All Jacques Greene dates are listed below.

Another party highlighted in the Pitchfork article was Let's Play House, which is a party run by Jacques Renault (not to be confused with Jacques Greene) and Nik Mercer. They've got two upcoming events this month -- first they'll do a free one on January 24 at The Woods (48 S 4 St) with Stockholm producer HNNY (who also plays Le Baron on 1/22 while he's in NYC), and then a co-presented party with The Dog & Pony show at Le Poisson Rouge on January 26 with The Revenge (UK), Mark E, Jacques Renault, and Paul Raffaele (tickets). The flyers for those shows are below. Jacques Renault also has a show tonight (1/18) at The Counting Room (44 Berry St) with Miss Sabado and Son of Sound. Admission is $10 at the door or $5 with RSVP to resonate@misssabado.com.

Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin
Mister Saturday Night

The article also highlights the Mister Saturday Night party, which is run by Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin. They have a bunch of parties coming up, and one of the most interesting ones is FaltyDL (who has an album coming out next week) at House of Yes on January 26. More info on that show and a list of all upcoming Mister Saturday NIght events are below.

The article also talks about Aurora Halal's Mutual Dreaming party, which doesn't have any upcoming events at the moment, but you may remember it from the Hieroglyphic Being show at 285 Kent over the summer.

Lists of dates, video, streams, and flyers below...

James Blake at MHOW - 12/11/12
James Blake

"Now might be a good time to tell you that the album's nearly done, the new one. This is the first time we've played any of it to anybody in America," said [James] Blake, who admitted to being nervous. He needn't have been. The new tracks - which Blake says haven't been officially named yet, but were listed on the setlist as "We Are Going Down T'Pub", "Our Love Comes Back", "Every Day I Ran", and "Overgrown" - were stunning, continuing the trend of increasing Blake's vocal focus and even hinting at traces of R&B. The mix of fresh tunes and favorites was a brilliant balance. If set-closer "The Wilhelm Scream" had been the last song of the night, it would have been an impeccable show.

...

[During the encore], Blake played new song "Retrograde", an absolutely massive tune that seemed to bring together everything he had played up to that point. It was the type of song that, when you hear it for the first time, puts a huge smile on your face, knowing you're going to get to hear it with fresh ears someday down the road. If this is the type of stuff on Blake's new album, he'll run 2013. [Consequence of Sound]

James Blake, who had one of, if not the most stunning debut full length of 2011, came to NYC last night (12/11) for his first of two sold out shows here to make the stateside live debut of the material he's working on for that album's followup. As quoted in the above review, his set included six new songs. He also played the new material at a recent UK show, and a video of two of those songs from that show is below (no videos from the NYC show at the moment though). Last night's show was at Music Hall of Williamsburg and pictures are in this post.

James and FaltyDL, who also opened last night, will do it again tonight (12/12) at Bowery Ballroom, and tonight's show is also sold out.

More pics and the setlist from Tuesday's show and that video are below...

FaltyDL

As mentioned, FaltyDL has been at work on his new album, Hardcourage, which features the single "Straight & Arrow." Details on the album have surfaced and we now know that it comes out on January 22 via Ninja Tune. That's the awesome cover art above [very Barney Bubbles - Bill] and the tracklist, including "She Sleeps," a collaboration with Friendly Fires' Ed Macfarlane, is below. The "Straight & Arrow" single comes out next week (11/13) via Ninja Tune and features remixes by Four Tet, Gold Panda, and MikeQ & Divoli S'vere. FaltyDL also just revealed the video for that track, which you can watch below.

As mentioned, FaltyDL will play Webster Hall on December 7 with Skream, but you can catch him in NYC sooner than that because he's been added to the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, which happens this Friday (11/9) and Saturday (11/10). FaltyDL plays Cameo Gallery on Saturday with Pearson Sound, Benji B, and Ki:Theory.

Since we last spoke, the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival has revealed more of its schedule (some of it is still TBA though).

Skream
Skream

UK dubstep pioneer Skream is currently on his Skreamizm tour over in Europe and upon completing that he'll head over to NYC for a Girls & Boys show with FaltyDL and Stryker Matthews on December 7 at Webster Hall.

Four Tet at Creators Project in 2011 (more by Ryan Barkan)
Four Tet

NYC producer FaltyDL plans to release a new album, Hardcourage, at some point in the near future, but before that he'll release a single for the track, "Straight & Arrow," on November 13 via Ninja Tune. The single will be backed by remixes by Four Tet, Gold Panda, MikeQ, and Divoli S'vere. Check out the original over at Pitchfork and stream the Four Tet remix below. The psychedelic cover art is below too.

Four Tet will be heading over to the US later this month to play Moogfest on October 27 in Asheville, NC. He'll stop in NYC right before that to DJ a Red Bull Music Academy presented show on October 26 at Autumn Bowl (67 West St) in Brooklyn with a killer lineup of Jamie xx (whose band The xx will be playing the Bronx's Paradise Theater earlier that night) and Floating Points (who we profiled HERE). Speaking of sure-to-be-insane DJ parties happening on October 26, Neon Indian and Chrome Canyon are DJing Cameo that night (tickets are on sale now). Decisions, decisions...

Four Tet released his most recent album, Pink, this past August via his own Text label, which compiled a few of his vinyl only singles that came out over the past year. It's a more subdued album than its predecessor (2010's There Is Love In You) but just as heady and the shining moments we've come to expect from Four Tet continue to show up, just in different ways. Highly recommended listen. You can stream some of its tracks below.

In related news, Dan Snaith (aka Caribou and fka Manitoba) has a release coming out under another moniker, Daphni. That album, titled JIAOLONG (pronounced "jow-long"), comes out October 16 via Merge but can be streamed ahead of its release at Resident Advisor.

A list of all Four Tet dates and song streams, along with the FaltyDL cover art, are below.

Maxxi Soundsystem
Maxxi Soundsystem

It's anchors aweigh for a downtown Brooklyn market built in shipping containers -- and its vendors are awash in anxiety about their future.

DeKalb Market merchants are upset the Flatbush Ave. open-air shopping bazaar is shutting down this fall -- far sooner than expected -- to make way for a housing development with a Century 21 department store.

They say market operator Urban Space told them moving to a new Brooklyn location -- which hasn't been found yet -- will be a three-week process. They'll be out of business just when their crucial holiday selling season begins.

"I have to figure out how to save my business," said Maxcine DeGouttes of Stitch Therapy, who probably won't move her yarn shop to DeKalb's new site. She worries the market can't survive in a less-densely populated locale. [NY Daily News]

Dekalb Market, original space, we hardly knew ya. In addition to the vendors, it was also home to the occasional Rooftop Films screening and live shows though most this summer have ended up moving locations (though not due to the above news). Chromatics, who were to play Dekalb on July 22, moved to Music Hall of Williamsburg (tickets still available) and we since realized that the Fixed x The Dog & Pony Show featuring Maxxi Soundsystem that was to have happened on August 18 has moved to Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets are on sale for the LPR show.

Not everything has fled Dekalb just yet. On the 4th of July there's a party "Deep Space: Mission 1" from 3PM - 9PM with Francois K, King Britt, FaltyDL and Infinity. Tickets are on sale. Flyer for the party is below.

Lindstrom is currently on a tour which brings him to NYC on Friday (5/25) for the previously discussed Webster Hall show with Simian Mobile Disco (tickets). That tour will also bring him to Detroit's Movement Electronic Music Festival this weekend where he'll play alongside Public Enemy, Actress, SBTRKT, Major Lazer, Gold Panda, Nina Kraviz, Matias Aguayo, FaltyDL, AraabMUZIK and more. Tickets for the fest are on sale now. The full lineup is listed below.

Speaking of electronic music festivals, Mutek goes down in Montreal from May 30 - June 3. The Mutek lineup includes Kode9, Nicolas Jaar, Clark, Blondes, Apparat, Shlohmo, Shackleton, Stephen O'Malley & Tim Hecker, Biosphere & Lustmord, and more. The full lineup is listed below.

In related news, as mentioned, Apparat will come to NYC after Mutek for a show at Gramercy Theater on May 31. It's since been announced that Sleepyhead will open that show. Tickets for that show are still available and we're also giving away a pair. Contest details below, along with a list of all dates, song stream, and those festival lineups.
