Warm Up

This weekend marks the third installment of this year's 'Warm Up' series at MoMA PS1. The annual NYC outdoor music series and dance party in Long Island City runs this year every Saturday from June 29 to September 7 (3-9 PM, doors open at noon), with an excellent and diverse lineup heavy on electronic including XXYYXX, Majical Cloudz, Caribou, Liars, Ryan Hemsworth and many more.

The first weekend of the series featured Juan Atkins, Lee Gamble, HEATSICK, NHK'Koyxen and Bill Kouligas. Last weekend the venue hosted The Martinez Brothers, Kim Ann Foxman, DJ Qu and Anthony Naples. You can see the full list of artists below.

Despite the triple-digit temperatures of last weekend, the line to get into the party wrapped around the corner of the museum. However, once in the courtyard, partygoers found a convenient way to cool off in the shade of the Party Wall, an urban landscape installation by CODA that will be there all summer. The Party Wall, a massive structure made of wooden panels, covers much of the museum's courtyard and features kiddie pools, benches, and hoses that spray or mist people with water. For those who could stand the heat, there's also the dancefloor next to the stage, but many chose to hang out and listen to the music from the shelter of the Party Wall instead. And as usual, Warm Up offered a great selection of refreshments, with beers from many New York State breweries, and food such as lobster rolls and oysters.

This weekend, the Long Island City party will feature music from MK, XXYYXX (who plays Music Hall of Williamsburg first), Ryan Hemsworth (who DJs Tribeca Grand afterwards), Pete Swanson, Gobby and James K. Admission is $15 in advance, $18 day-of, and free for Long Island City residents. Get ready with a mix XXYYXX made in honor of the event.

conceptual art for "A Whole Lot of Sorrow"
sorrow

"Don't they do that already?" is surely the smartass comment someone will make upon hearing the news that The National will perform one song for six hours straight at MoMa PS1 on May 5. The song in question is "Sorrow" (from 2010's High Violet) and the marathon performance is part of an installation by Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson titled "A Lot of Sorrow." Here's more info:

By stretching a single pop song into a day-long tour de force the artist continues his explorations into the potential of repetitive performance to produce sculptural presence within sound.

Sorrow found me when I was young,
Sorrow waited, sorrow won

commences the song by The National, whose music and lyrics repeatedly conjure notions of romantic suffering and contemporary Weltschmerz--themes Kjartansson often uses in his own work employing references as wide-ranging as Ingmar Bergman, the German Romantics, and Elvis Presley. As in all of Kjartansson's performances, the idea behind A Lot of Sorrow is devoid of irony, yet full of humor and emotion. It is another quest to find the comic in the tragic and vice versa.

The event is PS1's final Sunday Session of the season and tickets ($15) are on sale now.

Meanwhile, Crossing Brooklyn Ferry (the fest currated by The National's Bryce and Aaron Dessner) starts Thursday (4/25) with three nights at BAM. Tickets are still available.

Tickets are also still available to see The National at Barclays Center in June.

Spend your weekend checking out art at the annual, three-day DUMBO Arts Festival, but also make time to get to Long Island City for the seventh annual NY Art Book Fair which runs at MoMA PS1 starting tonight:

Thom Yorke at The Wooly - 9/7/12 (via non_equivalents)
Thom Yorke

Thom Yorke came to NYC over the weekend and DJed a Fashion Week party for Rag & Bone (whose co-designer Marcus Wainwright is a friend of Thom's) at The Wooly on Friday (9/7). A picture of Thom during his set at the Belvedere Vodka-sponsored party is above. Aziz Ansari was in attendance too.

Thom also, as discussed many times, did an Atoms for Peace DJ set for the final installment of this summer's Warm Up at MoMA PS1 with AFP bandmate and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. Atoms for Peace just announced that their new album will come out next year, and to open their set, Thom and Nigel performed three new tracks that will presumably end up on that album with Thom singing live. You can watch videos of two of those new songs, and listen to audio of the third below. After the short unexpected live performance, Thom returned to the boards for the remainder of the show and spun a variety of tunes (everything from Talking Heads to Azealia Banks).

The rest of the lineup at Warm Up was great too. Despite a crazy storm, the show went on, opening with a set by Justin Strauss. Then Maria Minerva, who also did a Fashion Week show, just released new album, Will Happiness Find Me (stream it), and who now lives in Brooklyn (after moving from Estonia to London), played a live set. You can catch her in NYC again at Glasslands on Friday (9/14) with Father Finger and Octo Octa (tickets).

Up next was Holy Other, finally making his NYC debut, after having to cancel shows last summer due to illness. The elusive producer, who in a recent interview with Stereogum said he was "going to feel naked" performing outdoors during the day, played material off his excellent recently released debut LP, Held, and 2011's With U EP as well. A video from his set is below. The MoMA PS1 show fell in the middle of his tour with Amon Tobin, which hits the NYC area on Thursday (9/13) at Wellmont Theatre (tickets) and Friday (9/14) at Hammerstein Ballroom (tickets).

Before Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich finally took the stage, we were graced with one more set, this time by Scottish producer Rustie, who played Webster Hall with Flosstradamus and Brenmar the night before (9/7). He dropped bass heavy tunes that got the crowd going pretty wild. A couple videos from his Webster Hall show are below (unfortunately, the sound cuts out about halfway through).

Check out all those videos below...

Genesis P-Orridge

MoMA PS1 Summer School returns this August for its second year in a row. MoMA describes it as, "An annual series of workshops, lectures, and discussions, Summer School brings students together for a focused conversation on contemporary practice with artists, authors, musicians, curators, theorists, and scholars who have made significant contributions in their respective fields." This year's classes will be taught by Throbbing Gristle's Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Marina Abramovic, and Steve Paxton. The deadline to apply for classes is today (7/20), but all three of those teachers, including Genesis P-Orridge, will give a presentation open to the public at MoMA PS1 on September 9.

Genesis P-Orridge is also reissuing What's History for the first time on vinyl this month on Dais Records. The album was recorded in 1981 with filmmaker Dan Landin and originally came out on cassette in 1983. Only 500 copies are being pressed and you can pre-order it at the Dais webstore.

Speaking of MoMA PS1, the 2012 Warm Up series continues there this Saturday (7/21) with Matthew Dear (DJ), Sepalcure, Le1f, MikeQ, and JDH & Dave P. Tickets for that show are still available. You can stream MikeQ's Fader/MoMA PS1 Warm Up mix for this week, which includes Azealia Banks, Brenmar, and more below.

Maria Minerva

London-via-Estonia psychedelic pop singer Maria Minerva is planning to release her new album, Will Happiness Find Me?, on August 1 September 4 via Not Not Fun. The album follows her excellent 2011 EP, Sacred & Profane Love, which came out on NNF sister label 100% Silk. The album was recorded in Lisbon, finished in London, and mastered in Berlin. She's also got a collaborative album with NNF/100% Silk label boss LA Vampires (aka Amanda Brown) called The Integration, which is due this October.

Maria will be touring New Zealand/Australia in August, and after that she'll be heading to the US for a tour here. That tour hasn't been announced in full yet, but we already know she'll play Warm Up at MoMA PS1 on September 8 with Thom Yorke/Atoms for Peace (DJ set), Holy Other, Rustie, and Justin Strauss. Tickets for that show are still available.

While she's in NYC, she'll return to Glasslands (where she made her US live debut back in April) for a show on September 14 at the Brooklyn venue. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

A list of all currently known dates and a stream of Sacred & Profane Love's "Gloria" below...

Light Asylum/Nguzunguzu
Light Asylum
Nguzunguzu

MoMA PS1's 2012 Warm Up series kicked off this past Saturday (7/7) with sets from Arca ft. HBA, TRUST, Nguzunguzu, Light Asylum, and Todd Terry. It was super hot and the art installations made for less shade than last year's did, but that didn't stop the crowd from dancing throughout the show. Nguzunguzu got a great reaction from the crowd and Todd Terry had the place going pretty crazy too. If you were there, what do you think?

For Light Asylum and TRUST, the MoMA PS1 show was part of a tour that the two dark duos are on together, which also came to Brooklyn for a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Sunday (7/8).

Warm Up continues this Saturday (7/14) with Terrence Parker, D3, Ron Morelli, Jeremie Delon, and Steve Summers. Tickets for all upcoming Warm Ups are available. More pictures from this past Saturday below...

Warm Up

As mentioned, 'Warm Up' at MoMA PS1 kicks off next month with dance parties every Saturday in the outdoor courtyard from July 7 - September 8. This year's schedule includes Thom Yorke (Atoms for Peace DJ set), Matthew Dear, Evian Christ, Holy Other, Kassem Mosse, Sepalcure, and more.

For the first time since its inception, advance tickets for Warm Up will be available. Tickets for all shows go on sale today at noon.

Eternally Yrs

Sepalcure (aka Machinedrum and Braille) will be going on a short North American tour this summer which brings them to NYC for three shows in July. The first is the duo's previously discussed appearance at Warm Up on July 21 at MoMA PS1 with Matthew Dear (DJ), Le1f, MikeQ, JDH & Dave P, and Miguel. Then they'll play a Brooklyn show that same night (7/21) at 285 Kent and Deep Space on July 23.

Sepalcure followed their great self-titled LP with a new EP this past April, called Eternally Yrs. In addition to "Eternally Yrs," which appeared on their LP, and remixes of two other LP tracks, the EP also included a new track, "Don't Cry," which you can stream below, along with a list of all dates.

Evian Christ
Evian Christ

Once-mysterious UK producer Evian Christ (real name Joshua Leary) has been picking up a ton of speed this year and now he's set to kick off his first North American tour this summer. It was only four months ago that Joshua was a kid living and attending school in the suburbs of England, posting tracks to his YouTube page. Then in February, it was announced that he signed to Tri Angle Records, who compiled those tracks into the Kings and Them mixtape, which you can download for free or stream in full below.

The mixtape is probably most comparable to labelmate Clams Casino, with whom he shares a knack for warped, dark hip hop. Samples on the record include Tyga, Grouper, and E-40, all used in blown-out otherworldly atmospheres that never cease to feel right at home on the Tri Angle roster. Four of the tracks -- "Fuck It None of Ya'll Don't Rap," "Thrown Like Jacks," "MYD," and "Drip" -- will be remastered and released as a limited edition 12" on the label on June 25.

Evian Christ will kick off his North American tour in July, most of which is with Purity Ring. None of the shows with Purity Ring are in NYC, but Evian Christ will be in the area to play Warm Up at PS1 on August 11 with Tri Angle labelmate Howse (who we recently wrote about HERE), Shlohmo, Photek, and Autre Ne Veut. Tickets for that show go on sale June 18. All Evian Christ dates are listed below.

"Just saw Francois K DJ all Kraftwerk set in the MoMAPS1 dome for 90 minutes with 360 degree visuals. Sound by Jim Toth. I love NY." - DFA Records

"Only non-Kraftwerk song that both Juan Atkins and Francois K. played: Yaz's "Situation."" - Sasha Frere-Jones

Ralf Hutter of Kraftwerk & Francois K @ PS1
Kraftwerk DJ Set - PS 1

Being that Kraftwerk began their 8-night, 8-album run of performances at MoMA back on April 10, and today is only the 16th, as of this writing there are still two chances to see them perform a full album in 3-D at the modern art museum. However, your chance to participate in "Kraftwerk Fest" at MoMA's PS1 has come and gone and featured two special Kraftwerk sets by DJs Juan Atkins (Saturday) and Francois K (Sunday).

Sunday, which we have pictures from in this post, was made even more special with a guest appearance by uncle Ralf Hutter who stopped by before performing Techno Pop" with his band at MoMA later in the night. Tonight he and his band will do "The Mix", and they finish it off Tuesday with "Tour de France."

The "fest", part of a month-long installation at PS1 (that runs until May 12), was was three hours long each day, with the DJs playing Kraftwerk remixes to a packed crowd. Francois K performs again TONIGHT (4/16) at Cielo with Four Tet (who is also DJing). Check out more pictures from Sunday at PS1, shots of 5Ptz across the street included, below...

Kraftwerk

Kraftwerk begin their eight-show run at MoMA tonight (4/10), and MoMA is now selling a limited edition Kraftwerk boxset, but, as you know, there's more! MoMA PS1 in Long Island City is also doing this thing...

Kraftwerk - Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
On view April 12, 2012--May 14, 2012

In conjunction with Kraftwerk - Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 at The Museum of Modern Art, an eight-channel video and sound installation especially developed for the exhibition is now on display in the MoMA PS1 Performance Dome.

Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider founded Kraftwerk In Düsseldorf in 1970 and set up the pioneering Kling Klang studio, where all Kraftwerk's albums have been conceived and composed. By the mid-1970s, Kraftwerk had achieved international recognition for its revolutionary experimentation with sound and imagery. Its compositions, which feature distant melodies, multilingual vocals, robotic Beats, custom-made vocoders, and computer speech, anticipated the impact technology would have on art and everyday life, capturing the human condition in an age of mobility and telecommunication. Kraftwerk's innovative looping techniques and mechanized rhythms, which had a major influence on the early development of hip-hop and electronic dance music, remain among the most commonly sampled sounds across a wide range of musical genres. Kraftwerk uses robotics and other technical innovations in its live performances, illustrating the belief that humans and machines make equal contributions in the creation of art.

AND, that's not all! This weekend at PS1, to go along with all this stuff, will be a Kraftwerk Music Festival! More details below...

Continue reading "Kraftwerk stuff happening @ PS1 too (installation & fest)"

Kraftwerk

Kraftwerk will kick off a "Kraftwerk-Restrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7" residency at The Museum of Modern Art from April 10-17, playing an album in full each night.

According to a press release:

Each evening will consist of a live performance, in the Museum's Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium, of works from one of the group's eight albums, created over four decades, followed by a selection of original compositions from their catalogue adapted specifically for this exhibition's format, to showcase both Kraftwerk's historical contributions and contemporary influences on sound and image culture.
Tickets for all 8 shows go on sale Wednesday, February 22 at noon.

The press release also notes that "presentation of Kraftwerk's historical audio and visual material" will be on view at The Performance Dome at MoMA PS1 from April 10 - May - 14 in Long Island City, Queens.

Long rumored, but now finally realized:

Adult Swim announced it has picked up the live-action series Loiter Squad, a 15 minute live-action show that features sketches, man on the street segments, pranks and music from Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All. The cast, featuring the Los Angeles collective of rappers, artists, and skateboarders, channel their multi-faceted creative talents in this Jackass-style showcase
Or to quote Tyler, "Its Not OFWGKTA That Has The Show, Its Myself, @JasperDolphin @oddfuckingtaco And @TheMustacheMan Thats Has It, That Happens To Be From It."

As previously mentioned, PS1's 'Warm Up' series of parties was extended until today (9/10) due to Hurricane Irene. Tanlines, Teengirl Fantasy and Physical Therapy were supposed to play during the hurricane, but get to play today instead. MoMA have also added Brooklyn's Kenny Dope and Odd Future's Syd the Kid to the bill. Syd the Kid was supposed to DJ the series in July but cancelled last minute, so today is her makeup show too. Whether she'll bring the rest of the crew remains to seen, but Tyler has been tweeting from NYC. 'Warm Up' runs from 2:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at 22-25 Jackson Avenue at 46th Avenue in Long Island City, Queens.
