As mentioned, Moogfest is taking 2013 off and will return in Spring 2014 in Asheville, NC. There will be, however, another festival in Asheville filling its old fall time period this year: Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit which will happen from October 25 - 27. (It's also run by AC Entertainment who were, until recently, the producers of Moogfest.) The initial inaugural line-up has just been announced and it's pretty impressive: Nine Inch Nails AND How to destroy angels_, the newly-reformed Neutral Milk Hotel (their first show back, and an evening that includes opening sets from Daniel Johnston and Half Japanese), Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Animal Collective, Disclosure, Bosnian Rainbows, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Gary Numan, Chromatics, Rustie, Jessie Ware, Zola Jesus & JG Thirlwell, Tricky, Jacques Greene, and The Bug.

Ghost BC / The Three O'Clock / Thee Oh Sees fans
After two weekends, Coachella 2013 officially came to a close this past Sunday (4/21) with sets from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Wu-Tang Clan, Grimes, Vampire Weekend, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jessie Ware, Tame Impala, and more. Pictures of those artists, and some of the comparatively smaller but not less exciting artists that we missed at Weekend 1, like Ghost B.C., The Three O'Clock, DIIV, and Thee Oh Sees, are in this post.
We didn't catch James Blake this time like we did the first time, but he brought out RZA (who was there with Wu-Tang Clan) to perform their song, "Take A Fall For Me," which appears on James' new album, Overgrown. You can watch a video of that below.

Disclosure w/ Jessie Ware at Coachella 2013 (via John Fransella)
We recently mentioned that Baauer dropped his remix of a currently unreleased Disclosure and Jessie Ware track during his set at Coachella 2013, and in related but even more exciting news, later on when Disclosure played, they brought out Jessie Ware to sing lead on their remix of her song, "Running." It's as awesome as you'd expect it to be. Check out a video of the on-stage collaboration, along with videos of "White Noise," "Boiling," "Tenderly," and a new song from their Coachella set, below.
Baauer at Coachella 2013 (via Justin Henderson)
"You wanna hear some brand new shit? I don't think I'm supposed to play this," Baauer said at his Coachella 2013 set yesterday (4/13) before dropping his remix of Disclosure and Jessie Ware's currently-unreleased track, "Please Don't Let Go," which Disclosure have been playing live. Listen to a rip of that track from Baauer's set below. And just for fun, it's followed by a video of him dropping "Harlem Shake." For more fun, check out this fake Baauer Coachella setlist.

At the Webster Hall show, Jessie played most of Devotion, the two tracks from her If You're Never Gonna Move EP that didn't re-appear on the album, her 2011 single with Sampha, "Valentine," which appears on the re-release of Devotion, and her new single, "Imagine It Was Us," which also appears on that release.

Tickets for that show are on sale now.

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.

Jessie Ware @ Bowery Ballroom, 1/17/2013
After a tiny club show at The Box in December and a four-song acoustic set at Highline earlier this week, rising UK singer Jessie Ware played what you could call her first proper NYC show last night (1/17) at Bowery Ballroom with openers Faye and Rochelle Jordan and pictures from that show are in this post. If you went, what did you think?
Meanwhile, A$AP Rocky has expressed interest in having Ware appear on his next album. "I knew about her since last summer. I'm working with her, I'm going to work with her. I want to bad," Rocky told the BBC. I don't care about her being a star, I just think she has a beautiful voice and a lot of talent. I haven't got the chance or honour to meet her yet - I just love her art." You may remember Florence Welch appears on his debut, Long.Live.A$AP which is out this week and SPIN just gave "Worst New Music."
More pics from Bowery Ballroom are below.

Jessie Ware @ Highline Ballroom, 1/16/2012
Jessie Ware is currently touring the US. She stopped in NYC last night (1/16) for her first of two shows here, the MTV '2013 Artists to Watch' show at Highline Ballroom with Zedd, Twenty One Pilots, and Glassnote-signed Robert DeLong. Accompanied only by an acoustic guitarist, Jessie only played four songs much to the disappointment of those there just to see her, though it seemed like most the crowd was there for Twenty One Pilots and Zedd. Pictures from the show are in this post.
Before her Highline show, Jessie taped an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, performing "Wildest Moments" with The Roots which aired last night. Those watching the serious performance would never know how silly Jessie can be when left with time for stage banter. Video of that is also below.
More pictures from last night plus the Fallon video below...
Alt-J at Mercury Lounge in May (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Big day for award nominations. The Oscars announced theirs this morning and the Brit Awards just wrapped up their ceremony for 2013 nominations, with Emeli Sandé grabbing four and Mumford & Sons and Alt-J each getting three. All three of those artists were nominated for British Album of the Year, a list that also included Paloma Faith and Plan B. If you don't know, The Brits are basically the UK's equivalent of the Grammys, though nominees are all British apart from a few "International" awards.
Jessie Ware, Muse, and Adele each got two nominations, and single-digit noms went to Bat for Lashes, The xx, Richard Hawley and The Vaccines.
The entire 2013 Brit Awards nominees list is below.
Jessie Ware at The Box earlier this month (more by Amanda Hatfield)
UK singer Jessie Ware, who sang on on SBTRKT's 2011 album but fully came into her own this year with her great album, Devotion, will be touring the US in 2013. That tour includes the previously discussed NYC show on January 17 at Bowery Ballroom with Rochelle Jordan, which is sold out, but Jessie was just announced as one of the four artists playing MTV's '2013 Artists to Watch' show in NYC on January 16 at Highline Ballroom. The rest of the bill includes Zedd, Twenty One Pilots, and Robert Delong. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Today, we finally get the much anticipated list of Pitchfork's Top 20 Albums of 2012. They revealed Nos. 30-50 yesterday and spent the rest of this week posting Honorable Mentions and tracks. None of the albums that made the top 20 are surprising to see there (which doesn't mean they aren't deserving), but the surprises come from the albums that missed the list all together. Passion Pit got ROBBED! Twin Shadow too! And Wild Nothing! If you're looking for Converge or Baroness, you'll have to redirect yourself to Pitchfork's Metal list (though Pallbearer was in the main top 50). And we could've guessed that Nos. 1 and 2 would be Frank Ocean and Kendrick Lamar... but who took the No. 1 spot? Head below to find out and you can check out individual writer's votes too...

Pitchfork just posted their much anticipated list of the top 100 tracks of 2012. The #1 slot went to... Grimes! Whether you thought the whole of her album Visions was good or not, it was hard to deny the charms of "Oblivion." (Having that great video didn't hurt either.) Do you think it deserved to top the list? If not then what song should've?
You can check out P4K's entire hot 100 of 2012 below.
!!! at Sasquatch 2011 (more by Josh Darr)
As previously discussed, !!! will be in town for a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Thursday (12/13) with Sinkane (who will open for Solange next week) and Yellow Dogs. Tickets for the show are still available and we're also giving away a pair. Details on how to enter to win are below.
Meanwhile, !!! frontman Nic Offer recently spoke to us about his favorite albums and songs of the year. Like Nic's own music, the list skews mainly electronic and electronic-tinged pop, and he makes room for a few other interesting inclusions too. Nic is also now the second artist we've spoke to to include the various artists compilation, Personal Space: Electronic Soul 1974-1984. You can check out the whole list below.

Jessie Ware @ The Box, 12/10/2012
UK singer Jessie Ware made her American live debut last night (12/10) at swanky NYC club The Box. Backed by a three-piece band -- including bassist Rocco Palladino whose father Pino is currently on tour with The Who -- Jessie wowed the crowd with her amazing set of pipes and great tunes from her much-lauded debut album, Devotion. (Which recently disappeared off Spotify, but Jessie says will be back soon.) The set included hit "Wildest Moments" (she thanked Katy Perry for tweeting it), "110%" (she talked about having to change the title to ""If You're Never Gonna Move" because of Big Pun who is sampled in the song) and a cover of Bobby Caldwell's 1978 single "What You Won't Do For Love" that she pointed out she recorded with Sampha (they both appeared on SBTRKT's 2011 album).
Jessie charmed the audience too, cracking jokes and chatting with folks between songs. She asked if Woody Allen really plays Monday nights at the Carlyle and, if so, why was anyone at her show? She also said Woody and Larry David were on her wishlist for who would come to her NYC show. Other factoids: Jessie told the crowd her sister lives in Brooklyn and has a "willy" in her bathroom that she "nicked from The Box." No elaboration on that.
Jessie Ware's next show is at Bowery Ballroom on January 17 (sold out) which is right around the corner from The Box. Jessie said she walked past it on the way to show and saw that Grizzly Bear were playing.
More pics from Jessie's show are below, along with the recently-released Cyril Hahn Remix of "Sweet Talk."
Purity Ring at Pop Montreal 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Purity Ring's debut album Shrines has been a mainstay on Best of 2012 lists, from NME and SPIN to personal lists from Freelance Whales and Bowery Presents' Josh Moore. They also had some of the more visually-striking shows of the year and were the #5 Most Blogged About Artist of 2012 according to the Hype Machine, which we're continuing to fuel with this post. Purity Ring sold out the initial NYC date of their upcoming 2013 tour, so a second Webster Hall show was added (1/12, tickets still available). They've had a big year.
But what did Purity Ring like this year? Corin Roddick, one half of the Montreal duo, gave us his unranked list of favorite songs of 2012. Did "Call Me Maybe" make the cut? Check out his list below.
Frank Ocean at Angel Orensanz, Sept 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
BBC Music has announced their Top 25 records of 2012. Like lists from MOJO, Q, and Uncut, it's got familiar names like Frank Ocean, Baroness, Swans and Grizzly Bear... but if you're expecting a UK indie act to top their list, you might be surprised at the Beeb's #1 choice. Check out the entire list below.
Katy B at Le Bain in 2011 (more by Chris La Putt)
UK singer Katy B released the (not actually that) dubstep leaning pop album, On A Mission, in 2011 and she's got plans to follow it with a new record in spring, 2013. But to tide us over til then, Katy has offered us a free EP, Danger, which features production by Jacques Greene, Diplo, and Zinc, and guest vocals from Jessie Ware, Iggy Azalea, and Wiley. You can stream it in its entirety below, and if you like what you hear, you can download it for free HERE.
Speaking of Jessie Ware, she'll be in NYC soon for her North American tour.
Stream is below.
"Here's a riddle: Grimes + LDR = the #1 and #2 most-blogged artists of 2012. Grimes LP on tons of year-end blogger lists. Why not LDR?" - Dev Sherlock
Hype Machine, which compiles data from countless music blogs, posted the Top 50 Most Blogged About Artists, complete with pretty pictures (like the one of the #1 artist above), and ways to listen to those artists. Head to their site for the full list, but you can check out the top 10 below...
