IO Echo @ PS1 Warm Up 8/31/2013
IO Echo

LA indie dancepop duo IO Echo just played the penultimate 2013 MoMA PS1 Warm Up on Saturday (8/31). We posted a full set from the entire day earlier today and another set from IO Echo's performance is in this post.

The band play NYC again tonight (9/3), opening for Haim at Webster Hall which is sold out. Haim is in the area after playing Philly's Made In America (pics and more pics) over the weekend. IO Echo will be joining Haim on their October dates on the West Coast as well, and those are listed below.

Haim's debut album, Days Are Gone, will be out September 30 on Columbia. There's a deluxe edition coming out in the UK with a bonus disc's worth of remixes done by the like's of Studio's Dan Lissvik, Psychemagik, Duke Dumont and more. You can check out The Tourist's remix of "The Wire" which removes some of the original's more overt Eagles-isms and replaces them with synth steel drums, taking things into balearic territory. Stream that below.

All dates are listed, along with more IO Echo pictures and the Haim remix, below...

Tickets are still available.

Turtle Bugg and Evan Michael are also on the bill. Tickets are $10 but you can get reduced $7 admission before 1 AM with RSVP.

Daniel Avery also plays a FIXED party in NYC the night before Warm Up with Psychemagik at Sullivan Room (7/26) (tickets).

Psychemagik

The members of UK dance duo Psychemagik, Danny McLewin and Tom Coveney, met six years ago at a music festival and after recording a track, "Valley of Paradise," the two decided they needed to make an album together. Psychemagik make the kind of disco synth-funk that we've heard from Daft Punk and Justice, and it's also the kind of thing that would feel at home on DFA Records. They've been spending the last few years dropping remixes left and right, including ones of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" and Talking Heads' "This Must Be The Place" -- two songs that you could already make a case for throwing on at a party, but Psychemagik's remixes seal the deal without making them sound like that shitty "Somebody That I Used to Know" remix that you keep hearing on the radio.

In December, Psychemagik released their first EP of original material, Lunar Escape, which consisted of three songs written and produced entirely by the duo without any samples, and the only outside help coming from string arranger Richard Chester on one of the tracks. This year, they're finally set to release that full length album they've been talking about. You can stream all three EP tracks, the Fleetwood Mac and Talking Heads remixes, and that early recording, "Valley of Paradise," below.

Psychemagik are set to make their way over to the USA in February to support the Lunar Escape EP with a five-week long DJ tour. That tour hits NYC for a FIXED party on March 2 at Glasslands. Tickets for that show are on sale now. It's a late show at the Brooklyn venue which happens after The Night Marchers play an earlier one the same night.
