Okeechobee

Florida is getting its biggest-ever camping music festival this year in Lake Okeechobee with the arrival of the inaugural Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival on March 4-6. The festival, which is produced by some of the makers of Bonnaroo, has a varied lineup, including headliners Mumford & Sons, Hall & Oates, Kendrick Lamar and Skrillex, along with Robert Plant, Big Grams, Fetty Wap, Four Tet, Future, Jason Isbell, Joey Bada$$, Miguel, Odesza, Shabazz Palaces, Ween and many more. It's also one of the last-ever US shows for Youth Lagoon.

Like Bonnaroo does, they're having a big superjam thing too. Theirs is called "PoWoW! A Live Superstar Mashup," and it's led by Miguel and Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler. The jam sesh also includes Hall & Oates' John Oates, jazz breakout Kamasi Washingon, two members of pioneering funk band The Meters (George Porter Jr and Zigaboo Modeliste), the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, DJ Chris Karns, and Soulive members Eric Krasno and Neal Evans. Special guests are promised too.

3 and 4-day weekend passes are available now, along with VIP packages. Full lineup below...

Lotus
Lotus

Jamtronica band Lotus announced a tour a little while back, and since we last spoke it was revealed that electronic/acoustic post-rock duo El Ten Eleven will open select dates. That's a really cool pairing.

One of the dates they'll open is the NYC show happening February 6 at Terminal 5. Tickets for that show are still available. All dates are listed below.

Ahead of the tour, Lotus remixed "Point Breeze" off El Ten Eleven's 2015 album Fast Forward. It's a little more psychedelic, a little easier to dance to, and it eventually goes into the kind of extended hypnotic passage that Lotus' own material is known for. They don't get too crazy with that stuff though, it's only a minute longer than the original. That remix premieres below.

Rentiers

Joel Tannenbaum's (of Plow United, Ex Friends) project The Rentiers put out an EP and a few singles this year, and they'll release another single, "The Early 2000s," this week. Like other Rentiers songs, Joel splits the vocals with Anika Pyle (who fronted the defunct Chumped and now fronts Katie Ellen) and Mikey Erg drums, but unlike those songs, it was produced by Jesse Miller of jamtronica band Lotus. We've been seeing a good amount of crossover between the indie and jam worlds this year, but we can't say we saw this one coming. But hey, punks is hippies after all.

And that said, the collaboration works out really well! The song is a throwback to early 2000s dancepunk (as the title hints), and it shouldn't really be a surprise that, together, Joel and Jesse have the perfect resume for that sound. The track premieres below.

Lotus play Terminal 5 on February 6 (tickets), and Anika's band Katie Ellen have a show with Chris Gethard this month (sold out). Anika also plays a solo show on April 2 at Mercury Lounge with Chris Farren, Crying and headliner Laura Stevenson (that's a good lineup). Tickets are on sale.

Mikey Erg just played a zillion shows, and next opens Vic Ruggiero's (of The Slackers) Grand Victory show on Wednesday (12/16) (tickets), Brendan Kelly (Lawrence Arms) and Derek Grant's Knitting Factory show on 1/22 (tickets), and Less Than Jake's Hello Rockview show at Gramercy Theatre (3/10) with Bigwig (sold out).

Squarepusher
Squarepusher

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.

A list of all dates and song streams below...

DOWNLOAD: Greg Saunier vs. WOOM - Quetzalcoatl's Ship (MP3)

Greg on stage with Deerhoof (more by Chris Gersbeck)
Deerhoof

We already knew that we could catch the very talented Greg Saunier of Deerhoof at one of two upcoming NYC shows (Ridgewood Masonic Temple on 2/8 with Buke & Gass and Le Poisson Rouge on 3/14-tickets), but we can also see the Deerhoof trapsman extraordinaire THIS FRIDAY, 2/17, at Bruar Falls. It doesn't look like Saunier will be behind the kit though, but he will be manning the drums... on a drum machine if the billing of the show is correct. Bruar Falls lists it as "SARA MAGENHEIMER (WOOM) AND GREG SAUNIER (DEERHOOF) DRUM MACHINE IMPROV DUO. The show kicks off at 8PM and will also feature sets by The Psyched and Antimagic. WOOM won't play the show, but they do have dates coming up elsewhere which are listed below. All Deerhoof dates are in a previous post.

This is not the first time Woom and Deerhoof will have collaborated either...

Last July the duo WOOM released their debut album, Muu's Way. Since then, word of mouth has been spreading about the chaotic, tender, startlingly original world the album creates. The band's reputation has grown slowly but persistently at the edge of visibility, like a slime mold spreading across the parking lot of modern independent pop music. So who is it listening to WOOM? Well, take for example some of their biggest fans: the musicians featured on this new release, Muu's Way Remixed.

Deerhoof's Greg Saunier takes on the underwater pop splash "Quetzalcoatl's Ship". Adding stuttering distorted drums, his version rolls the song like an over-ripe melon down a rocky hill in the hot sun. His longtime collaborators, Xiu Xiu, have a remarkably different take on the same song, chopping and looping to create a moody piece of midnight electro-minimalist doom.

BJ Warshaw (Parts and Labor, Shooting Spires) turns "The Hunt" (human-breath-based dance beat) into a psychedelic trash-can rave-up. Lucky Dragons ease the album's political-sleeper-love-song "Judith" into a pastoral latin-bumping cloud of rain. Talk Normal flip folk-concrete "Backwards Beach" into a no-wave sing-a-long. Meanwhile, Japanther get mellow with "Salt" and Butchy Fuego (Pit er Pat, The Boredoms) invents a new genre ("Woombia") for "Back In."

Listen to the whole EP on Soundcloud. Download Greg Saunier's take on "Quetzalcoatl's Ship" above. Full tracklist, and WOOM's new video for "The Hunt", is below.

BusdriverIn related news, the "driver" half of Deerhoof's "Hoofdriver" project (that 7" is out now) will play two nights at Southpaw as part of "Search And Restore & Manhattan New Music presents...4 nights of Kneebody". Kneebody's four night residency will feature two sets from the band each night, and will take place on 1/26 -1/29 with Wayne Krantz on the first night (tickets), Busdriver on board for the second night (tickets), Busdriver & Mark Guiliana on the third (tickets), and Daedelus on the final night (tickets).

It's not the first time that Kneebody and Busdriver have collaborated for a show or on stage; in fact, the pair were in NYC in February for Kneebody's four day residency at Bleecker St Theater. Videos of the two artists playing together are below.

If you can't make it to catch Daedelus at Southpaw, you can still catch him support Lotus with Tobacco at Terminal 5 on February 5th. Tickets are on sale. Lotus is also on board to play Mercury Lounge the night before, and tickets to that show are currently on sale as a package with the Terminal 5 tickets.

Full tour dates and everything else below...
