Heat @ Union Pool during CMJ (more by Amanda Hatfield)
M for Montreal was just here for CMJ, hosting a nine-hour showcase on Friday (10/24) at Arlene's Grocery with Lydia Ainsworth, HEAT, Homeshake, The Muscadettes and more. If you went, how was it? Those artists and a lot more will also be playing the ninth edition of the actual M for Montreal festival which happens in the Quebec city from November 19-22. Like the last few years, the first two days of M are more of an industry event with only "official selection" showcases, including performances by Operators, BADBADNOTGOOD, Ainsworth, July Talk, HEAT and more. Then on the weekend it moves into proper festival mode with shows all over the city and bands from all over the world, including Thee Oh Sees, Wrekmeister Harmonies, Toro Y Moi side project Les Sins, The Blind Shake, Nils Frahm, PyPy, Moon King, and lots more.
UK producer Joy Orbison is returning to the US for three shows this month, including dates in NYC, LA and San Francisco.

Joining Joy Orbison at that show is Berlin DJ Virginia, who will also be in the US for a couple shows, including one in Chicago the next day. Tickets for the Output show are on sale now.

Modeselektor at Coachella 2012 (more by David Andrako)
As mentioned, NYC electronic festival Electric Zoo is returning to the recently restored (after Governors Ball damage) Randall's Island from August 30 to September 1. Though much of the lineup is stuff you probably want to stay away from (like Benny Benassi, Tiesto, David Guetta, Steve Aoki, etc), there's also a handful of people worth seeing, including Four Tet, Moderat, Bondax, A-Trak, Diplo, Baauer, AraabMuzik, Skream, Cyril Hahn, RL Grime, Just Blaze, Joy Orbison, and Scuba. Tickets (3-day passes and single day passes) are on sale now. Full lineup at the festival's site.
There have also been a number of official afterparties announced. There's one at Williamsburg's new danceclub hot spot Output each night of the fest. The two biggest standouts are Modeselektor and Rudimental DJing Best Buy Theater on August 31 with Delta Heavy (tickets), and Chicago house vet Cajmere (who also plays Warm Up that weekend) at Cielo on August 30 (tickets).
Moderat (aka Modeselektor and Apparat) finally released their second album, Moderat II, this month, and you can stream the whole thing via a Spotify widget below.
For UK duo Bondax, Electric Zoo and Chicago's North Coast Festival (which a bunch of other Electric Zoo artists also play) are their only two North American gigs at the moment, after they recently cancelled their appearances at Warm Up and Camp Bisco, which they would have played in July. Check out their recent single, "Giving It All," below, or download it above.
The PMR-signed Cyril Hahn will also return to NYC when his tour with Ryan Hemsworth hits 88 Palace on October 5.

DOWNLOAD: Joy Orbison - "Big Room Tech House Dj Tool - TIP!" (MP3)
UK producer Joy Orbison (aka Peter O'Grady) hasn't been to the US in about two years and he recently announced that he'll be going on a short North American tour this February. That tour brings him to NYC for a Blkmarket-presented Nonplus+ Records showcase at a TBA Brooklyn location on February 15. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Joy Orbison will be playing with Nonplus+ head Boddika, and the bill also features Joey Anderson and Blkmarket DJs Taimur & Fahad.
The show doubles as an album release party for Think and Change, an upcoming compilation from NonPlus+ which is due out on February 25. The compilation features a deep house track from Boddika and Joy Orbison ("&Fate") and a wobbly cut from Joy Orbison solo ("Big Room Tech House Dj Tool - TIP!"), both of which you can stream below, and the latter of which you can download above. It also features tracks by Four Tet, Pearson Sound, Martyn, Instra:mental, and more. The full tracklist is below.
Joy Orbison's tour dates also include a London show on the European tour that Mister Saturday Night (Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin's NYC dance party) is going on in February. Mister Saturday Night also has a ton of local events in NYC coming up, including one with FaltyDL.
Speaking of Blkmarket shows at TBA NYC locations, Russian singer/producer Nina Kraviz, who we highlighted last year and who will be featured on the new Brandt Brauer Frick album, is playing one on January 26 with Cem & Rg, Talmur & Fahad, and more guests TBA. Tickets for that one are on sale now. It's the day after the previously discussed Blkmarket-presented Ellen Allien show (tickets).

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.
We try to keep tabs on various festivals around the world here on BrooklynVegan, many of which you'll eventually see pictures from. Today we focus on Belgium.

That lineup includes The Cure, Jack White, X, Mastodon, Garbage, The xx, M83, Metric, Amon Tobin, Skrillex, Perfume Genius, Bat For Lashes, Michael Kiwanuka, Alabama Shakes, My Morning Jacket, Regina Spektor, Florence + the Machine, The Vaccines and more.

UK producer/DJ Peter O'Grady, aka Joy Orbison, made his U.S. debut at Justin Carter & Eamon Harkin's 'Mister Saturday Night' party at 12-Turn-13 in Clinton Hill on Saturday night (4/9). Check out a video from the appearance below.
If you missed it, you have one more shot to catch O'Grady in NYC before he continues on towards Coachella. Joy Orbison plays Deep Space at Cielo with Francois K tonight (4/11). He then flies west for a pre-Coachella show in San Francisco, Coachella, and a post-Cochaella HARD LA event where he shares a bill with Pearson Sound / Ramadanman, Annie Mac, & Flinch on 4/19.
Speaking of HARD, the festival is heading to the high seas in 2012. Much like Jam Cruise (whose people are involved in this), and Bruise Cruise (whose people are not), HARD Cruise 2012 is coming. It sails from Florida in January, and that's about all the details they've released at the moment. Stay tuned for lineups, pricing, etc.

DOWNLOAD: Big Boi f. Gucci Mane, "Shine Blockas" (MP3)
In theory, she was an artist you want to root for-- all these ideas about art and celebrity and a flair for the dramatic. But the first few singles made the Lady Gaga project feel so presumptuous, her artsy entitlement overwhelming her songs' occasional strengths. "Bad Romance" was the moment where the music didn't just live up to the (self-inflated) hype, but surpassed it. The track is epic in construction-- by the time she gets to the bridge, more than three minutes in, the realization that there are hooks yet to come is thrilling. It helps that RedOne's production matches the songwriting's torrential drama; the churning, earth-shifting low-frequency synths are a programmatic reflection of the singer's unsteady, perhaps unwise, infatuation. But it's Gaga's performance, the wholly unapologetic fools-rush-in carnal energy, that commitment to emotional bravery in a context of increasingly twee chart pop, that makes "Bad Romance" feel so necessary. --David Drake [39. Lady Gaga "Bad Romance"]Pitchfork posted their Top 100 Tracks of 2009. Lady Gaga took two spots.
Neon Indian is also on there twice, which is the the same amount of times they're playing Mercury Lounge (Tuesday and Wednesday night).

Four Tet aka Kieran Hebdan will be headed to North America this February in support of his fifth record, There Is Love in You, which comes out January 26th on Domino.
In the meantime Kieran has some dates lined up in Europe including a December 11th DJ gig (the last night of a residency) at Plastic People in London. Those in attendance will get an exclusive mix CD that won't ever be available anywhere else (except ripped on to the Internet probably).
The lead single, "Love Cry," which comes out as a 12" on December 8th (b-side "Our Bells"), is posted (in a video) with album art, tracklist and all dates below...
