Ambient artist Heathered Pearls (aka Jakub Alexander) released his lush, transportive album, Loyal, last year via Ghostly International. Alexander has now handed that album over to a host of other talented folks -- Teen Daze, Solar Year, Nitemoves and more -- for a remix album, Loyal Reworks, which is out September 10. We've got the premiere of the very dreamy "Foxes In Fiction Tape Remix" of "The Worship Bell," which leads the album, and you can stream it in this post.
As mentioned, Heathered Pearls will be opening for Beacon and Shigeto in NYC this weekend on Saturday (8/31) at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets are still available but if you wan't to go for free, we have a pair to give away. Details are below.
Check out the Foxes in Fiction remix -- and the tracklist for the whole LP -- below.

Ann Arbor beatmaker Shigeto (aka Zach Saginaw) is set to release his new album, No Better Time Than Now, on August 20 via Ghostly. Album single "Detroit Part 1," is Shigeto's typical nu-jazz-meets-hip-hop style, but the other cut he's released, "Ringleader," is new ground for him. Sparkling and multi-layered, the track that feels fuller and more beautiful than most of his work to date. You can check out "Detroit Part 1" below and listen to "Ringleader" over at NPR. The artwork and tracklist are below too.
In support of the new album, Shigeto will be heading out on a co-headlining tour with Ghostly labelmates Beacon. Another Ghostly artist, Heathered Pearls (who plays a collaborative set with Dirty Beaches in NYC soon) will be joining them as a support act for the first North American leg, which includes a NYC show happening on August 31 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show are on AmEx presale now and general on-sale begins Friday (6/21) at noon.
All tour dates are listed, along with the tour flyer, album artwork, trackist, and that song stream, below...

Dirty Beaches (aka Alex Zhang Hungtai) is set to release his new double album, Drifters/Love Is The Devil, on May 21 via Zoo Music. The record evokes acid western imagery through lo-fi-as-an-art recording techniques, and the whole thing is really desolate sounding. You can stream a couple of its tracks below. He's also releasing a Japan-only bonus EP, which you can stream a track from at Pitchfork, and a split cassette with TONSTARTSSBANDHT, which you can stream a track from below.
Dirty Beaches already announced a European tour, and mentioned he'd be doing a North American tour later this year. That tour still hasn't been announced, but those in NYC won't have to wait because he's coming here for two shows in June, separate from his future tour. The first is a regular Dirty Beaches show happening at Mercury Lounge on June 26, and the second is a collaborative set of new, original material with Heathered Pearls (aka Jakub Alexander) and Eola at Glasslands on June 28.
Tickets for the Mercury Lounge show go on sale Friday (5/3) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (5/1) at noon, and tickets for the Glasslands show also go on sale Friday at noon (no presale).
All currently known dates are listed, along with those song streams, below...

The xx and Austra @ Hammerstein Ballroom, 1/24/2013
The xx played Hammerstein Ballroom last night (1/24). The show was a make-up date for their show at the Bronx's Paradise Theatre that was supposed to happen back in October but got canceled due to Hurricane Sandy. Did you go last night? Austra, who is due for a new album sometime, opened the show and she's still got Sari and Romy Lightman as indispensable backing singers.
Both bands play Hammerstein again tonight (1/25) and it's sold out. If you're looking for something to do after the show, Austra DJs late night at Glasslands with Heathered Pearls also on the decks. Tickets are still available.

Mister Lies @ Chicago's Lincoln Hall this past weekend (more by Zach Pollack)
Chicago producer Mister Lies (aka Nick Zanca), who opened for Jessie Ware at Chicago's Lincoln Hall this past weekend, is gearing up for the release of his debut album, Mowgli, which is due to hit stores on February 26 via Lefse Records. You've already heard "Dionysian" and "Align" from the LP, and now Zanca has let a third track loose. It's an earworm-y number called "Hounded" and features vocals from Exitmusic's Aleksa Palladino. All three singles are available to stream at the bottom of this post.
Mister Lies has also revealed some live dates in support of Mowgli. He'll use SXSW as a launch pad for a brief North American tour in March. That tour includes a performance at Glasslands on March 30 with support from Rimar and Heathered Pearls. Advance tickets for the Brooklyn show are on sale now.
All Mister Lies tour dates and streams of "Hounded," Align," and "Dionysian" are below...
Com Truise at Sasquatch 2012 (more by Chris Graham and Rae Graham)
Com Truise (aka Seth Haley) plays NYC a lot, but it's usually at venues like Music Hall of Williamsburg and Gramercy, so it should be a pretty intimate night for Com Truise fans when Seth plays a solo live set at Glasslands on February 22. Not to mention there will be an opening set from Beacon, along with one from Nitemoves (not to be confused with Domino-signed band Night Moves) and DJ duties being covered by Heathered Pearls. Tickets for that show are on sale now. His only other dates that we're aware of at the moment are in Honolulu and LA.
Nothing formal has been announced yet, but on New Year's Day Com Truise posted a facebook status saying that he's "looking forward to bringing you lots of new music this year." Meanwhile, you can stream his 2012 single, "Chemical Legs," and check out a list of all upcoming tour dates below...
Heathered Pearls is the moniker of Polish ambient musician Jakub Alexander who now lives in Brooklyn. He recently released his debut LP, Loyal, out now via Ghostly International. Lush and transportive, you can stream the entire LP below.
New York has a couple chances to see Heathered Pearls live. Tonight (1/18) he plays the "Connections" party at Ran Tea House with with Rioux, Prism House, and Certain Creatures. It promises to be an "exploration in electronic psychedelia" and is $5 before midnight, $7 after. More info here. Then he's also on the bill (DJing) for Austra's upcoming DJ night at Glasslands on January 25 . Tickets 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.
