UK resident James Mathé will soon be pulling double duty, both as a touring member of Jose Gonzalez's band Junip (who are starting a North American trek next week) and as an opener too, with his own project, Barbarossa. Having just signed to Memphis Industries, Mathé will release his second album as Barbarossa, Bloodlines, on August 5.

Where his first album, Chemical Campfires, was lovely acoustic folk, Mathé has reinvented Barbarossa for the new album which is much more electronic. "I loved the acoustic scene, but knew it was not all I was about, so I dug out all my old casiotone keyboards, drum machines and analogue synths and just started writing." If you like the more soulful, reflective side of Hot Chip, you should definitely check him out. You can watch the video for the album's first single, "The Load," below.

In celebration of the Junip tour -- which hits NYC on June 13 for a sold-out show at Highline Ballroom with Quadron -- Barbarossa has covered Junip's "Line of Fire" which definitely takes the song in a more low-key direction, but no less lovely. We've got the premiere of that and you can stream it below.

If you didn't get tickets to the Highline show but are still interested in catching Barbarossa, he'll return to NYC for shows at Mercury Lounge on June 20 with Pacific Air and Littlefield on June 21 with M.A.K.U. Soundsystem and Helado Negro. Tickets for the Mercury Lounge and Littlefield shows are on sale now.

All Barbarossa dates are listed below...

Local Natives

And the "special surprise guest" playing Bowery Ballroom WEDNESDAY NIGHT is.... Local Natives! The band, who are flying in from California just for this Champion-sponsored show, will be previewing material from their new album which is due in early 2013. According to their label, this is their first show of 2012. Advanced tickets are now sold out, but not many were sold to make room for CMJ badgeholders. Did you buy one before you knew who the headliner was? If so, are you satisfied now that you know? SKATERS, San Cisco, Pacific Air, and Solid Gold open the show.

Question Mark

Not a lot of big acts at CMJ this year. Bowery Ballroom still has one night empty, and their Saturday night was just filled with the announcement that Wild Nothing is playing there twice (Saturday with Braids and Sunday with Merchandise). But now comes a last minute announcement that the Wednesday night of CMJ will be headlined by "Special Surprise Guest". SKATERS, San Cisco, Pacific Air, and Solid Gold open the show which goes on sale Wednesday at noon. Would you buy a ticket to a show if you didn't know who was playing?

Andrew WK at Webster Hall, April 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Andrew WK

As part of David Blaine's Ultrabook Experience event, "Electrified," Andrew W.K. will perform a unique keyboard solo using a tesla coil powered instrument in which David Blaine will be imprisoned as 1,000,000 volts of party music surge through his body. Presented by Intel, "Electrified" will find the master magician this weekend standing on a 20-foot-high platform at Hudson River Park Pier 54 in New York, surrounded by seven towering metallic orbs - or tesla coils - that will stream 1 million volts of electricity around him for 3 days and 3 nights. The sounds W.K. creates with this groundbreaking new musical instrument will send electric currents through Blaine's entire body!
The "Electrified" event will go down  10/5 - 10/8 but you can look for Andrew WK to play his solo on Sunday 10/7 at 7:30PM at 13th St and 11th Ave. Alternatively, check it out on youtube who will streaming the entire event.

UPDATE: There's an RSVP

Besides that "electrifying" performance (I'll be here all week!), Andrew WK will be hosting/DJing The Syndicate's annual pre-CMJ Conflict Of Interest show on 10/15 at Rebel NYC (251 West 30th Street, New York) alongside performances from Savoir Adore, Team Spirit, Pacific Air and The Hounds Below. Doors are at 7PM and the show is free with RSVP.
