Simian Mobile Disco at SS Coachella 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
Simian Mobile Disco have been making the festival rounds this year, having recently played Coachella and Primavera Sound, and in between those festivals they're working in a few club dates too. A few of those club dates happen in the Northeast US this June, including a FIXED/Verboten show in NYC at SRB Brooklyn on June 21 with FIXED regulars JDH & Dave P. Initially, SMD were just DJing this show, but it has since been announced that they will be doing a live set as well. Tickets for that one are on sale now. All upcoming dates are listed below.
Simian Mobile Disco are also set to release a new collaborative single with fellow UK dance duo Bicep called "Sacrifce," which is due out June 10 on vinyl via Simian Mobile Disco's own Delicacies label and June 24 digitally. Check out the video for that track below.
Primavera Sound have announced their 2013 lineup, set to go down on May 22-26 in Barcelona, Spain. The announcement came via an animated video and artists performing include Phoenix, The Postal Service, Blur, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, My Bloody Valentine, Tame Impala, Wu-Tang Clan, Dead Can Dance, Grizzly Bear, The Knife, and loads more. Current lineup is below along with the flyer and video...

James Murphy, El-P, Jarvis Cocker
The second of two S.S. Coachella cruises set sail off the coast of Jamaica last week (12/19) and returned on Sunday (12/23). (The first set sail from the Bahamas on 12/16.)
Day 1, pictured in this post, was headlined by reunited britpop greats Pulp and also included sets by The Rapture, Cloud Nothings, James Murphy (DJ), El-P, Simian Mobile Disco, and others. We didn't catch Grimes on day 1 but pictures of her set at day 2 are on the way. Killer Mike also played day 1 but unfortunately we missed him. The venues on the cruise were all pretty intimate, which was especially great for Pulp fans who got to see them in a 1,400 capacity theater with great lighting. The other venues had darker lighting but the sound and intimacy made up for any other shortcomings.
Before S.S. Coachella, Pulp played a hometown show in Sheffield where they gave their fans Christmas cards which sent them to this link, which was activated with a download to a new song on Christmas Eve at midnight, according to Pulp fansite Bar Italia. The song was actually a re-recording of an old Pulp demo, "After You," and it was done with fellow S.S. Coachella sailor James Murphy.
Writer Nathan Stout was aboard the cruise as well and he told us a bit about Pulp's set:
A neon sign reading 'PULP' in huge letters swings back and forth on stage as Jarvis Cocker rips off another piece of clothing. He shakes his hips then falls on his back, puts his forearm on his brow, squirms, and thrusts the air...all to the pleasure of hundreds of screaming fans. It is the first night of the S.S. Coachella. We are front and center, proudly wearing our neon hats. Only a few feet separate us from Jarvis and Pulp. We are drunk (but not belligerent or reckless) and living in the moment; every ridiculous moment. We dance. We yell. We exchange glances of excitement and approval. Welcome to music fan heaven. Welcome aboard the S.S. Coachella!He also wrote about the ship itself...
The Celebrity Silhouette is largest and newest of the Celebrity Cruise Lines' fleet. The vessel weighs a whopping 122,400 tons and holds 2886 people. It was obviously built with luxury in mind. There are two large swimming pools on the top deck, four hot tubs, a lawn made of real grass, chairs, hammocks, basketball courts, a theater, restaurants, clubs, food everywhere, drinks everywhere, and as many servants as cruise patrons. Aboard this ship we lived like rock stars for four glorious days.You can stream the Pulp song and check out more pics from day 1 of S.S. Coachella below...
Baroness at Terminal 5 in May (more by Joe McCabe)
Earlier this week, we posted an update from Baroness showing that things were looking upwards for the band. Unfortunately though, with two members having broken vertebrae and frontman John Baizely having a broken arm and leg, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that Baroness have in fact cancelled some of their upcoming North American tour dates, including their NYC show at House of Vans and LA's FYF Fest. They will not be replaced on the House of Vans lineup, which happens on August 29 and now just includes Turbonegro, Doomriders, and Nightbirds. This is a bummer but it makes sense that the band takes the time they need to recover, and we wish them a speedy and successful recovery!
Meanwhile, FYF Fest, which Wild Flag also dropped off of, recently expanded its lineup. It now features The Faint (who just announced they'll be reissuing Danse Macabre and touring the album), Glass Candy, King Tuff, and newcomers The Orwells. Tickets for FYF Fest are still available. The updated lineup and flier are below.
Concert cruises are all the rage lately, and this is in fact real.
Indio, CA music festival Coachella continues for two weekends in April, 2013. But just because they've decided to keep the fest in Indio, doesn't mean they can't take it on a couple of cruises as well. As seen in the picture above, S.S. Coachella will set set sail off of the Bahamas from December 16-19 and off of Jamaica from December 19-23. The lineup (thus far at least) includes Pulp, Hot Chip, Yeasayer, James Murphy (DJ set), Grimes, Cloud Nothings, Killer Mike, El-P, Sleigh Bells, Father John Misty, and more.
Holy Ship sails in January too.
Simian Mobile Disco at PS1 in 2011 (more by Erez Avissar)
Simian Mobile Disco released their new album, Unpatterns, this year and have been doing a good amount of touring in support of it, already hitting NYC twice for DJ sets at LPR and Webster Hall. As mentioned, they'll be back in the area to DJ at Camp Bisco (7/14), and they've just announced a December tour which brings them back to NYC again, only this time it looks like we're in for a live set. They'll play Webster Hall on December 6. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, July 13 at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday, July 11 at noon.
The band also recently made a video for Unpatterns track, "Your Love Ain't Fair." You can check that out below, along with a list of all dates...

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.

Simian Mobile Disco at PS1 in 2011 (more by Erez Avissar)
Simian Mobile Disco released their new LP, Unpatterns, this week via Wichita Recordings. It's a bit of a return to form to their dancefloor-ready debut, Attack, Decay, Sustain Release, rather than the in your face electropop of 2009's Temporary Pleasure. Not as many guest vocalists on the new album, and when they do appear on Unpatterns, they're backgrounded and sparse, like Jamie Lidell's contribution to "Put Your Hands Together." Check out a stream of the entire album below.
Simian Mobile Disco are continuing to tour in support of the album, and will come to NYC this month to DJ Webster Hall on May 25 with DJ sets by Michael Mayer, Lindstrom, FIXED DJs JDH & Dave P< and Alex English & Rekles. Tickets for this show are on sale now. The flier for this show is below.
Simian Mobile Disco will return to NY for Camp Bisco which goes down in Mariaville, NY from July 12-14. Other artists playing include Amon Tobin, Big Boi, Tycho, Thundercat, Shigeto, Daedelus, Skrillex, Star Slinger, Crystal Castles, and more. Tickets for the fest are on sale.
Speaking of Lindstrom, his most recent album, Six Cups of Rebel was released earlier this year. You can stream that entire album below and download the track, "De Javu," at the top of this post.
And speaking of FIXED, their Kindness-headlined show at Le Poisson Rouge is TONIGHT (5/17). It's the NYC live debut for Kindness, whose solid debut LP, Word, You Need a Change of Mind, was released this year. Tickets for tonight's show are still available.
Album streams, show flier and a list of all dates are below.

Descendents at FFFFest (more by Tim Griffin)
Much like last year, FYF Fest 2011 is poppin' off with some incredible bands, many of whom recently reunited. This year the LA fest will host a coveted Descendents appearance, a Death From Above 1979 show, Guided By Voices, another Kid Dynamite reunion, The Dead Milkmen, Explosions in the Sky, the return of The Weakerthans and many, many notable others. Full lineup is below. The show goes down at 1st and Main in downtown Los Angeles on September 3rd. Tickets are on sale.
For Kid Dynamite, which features members of Lifetime, Paint it Black and None More Black, the reunion is their first since re-emerging for This is Hardcore last year with Ink & Dagger. The band called it quits in 2000 and reunited in 2005 at CBGB and some other times too. I hope they schedule another NYC show, but it's just LA for now.
This is Hardcore THIS YEAR features an appearance from Ressurection, which also featured Dan Yemin on guitar. Tickets for This is Hardcore 2011, taking place in Philly's Starlight Ballroom, is mostly sold-out, with tickets for the Sunday show still available.
The Descendents appearance at FYFest is one of several dates scheduled for the reunited band, NYC's Roseland, Chicago Riot Fest, and Philly's Riot Fest included. Tickets are still available for the 9/23 Roseland show.
Mister Heavenly will hit the road for a string of dates on the West Coast leading up to FYF Fest. Check out their full tour schedule below, and look for their new LP Out of Love on 8/16 via Sub Pop. Check out "Pineapple Girl" from that record above.
The Death From Above 1979 appearance is one of several slated for the band in the coming months, including a 7/22 appearance at Williamsburg Waterfront. Tickets are still available OR, you can try your hand by winning a pair at our Facebook. The full set of DFA1979 dates are below.
The Weakerthans have a few other dates slated for Europe and Canada in the coming months. Hopefully they add more US dates too. All dates for now are listed below.
A few bands on the FYFest lineup (namely, Cults, Off!, and No Age) will also appear in NYC at the House of Vans this summer, and for FREE. The FYF-presented House of Vans series of shows starts this Thursday (6/30). You just have to RSVP to get in (and maybe get there early).

As previously announced, this Friday and Saturday (3/18-3/19) at Terminal 5 is the pre-Ultra Music Festival HARD Weekend 2011 in NYC. Crystal Castles will play a sold out show at Terminal 5 on Friday with Teengirl Fantasy. On Saturday (3/19), Simian Mobile Disco will take over the Manhattan venue with Skream, Benga, and Fake Blood.

In honor of those shows, we're giving away the Flange Bliss remix of SMD's "Flea in Your Ear" (a bonus track from "Temporary Pleasure"). Grab the MP3 above.
SMD is on tour now with Blondes and Juan Maclean (who is DJing). All dates are below.
James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco produced the upcoming, fourth Arctic Monkeys album Suck It and See. The album comes out June 7 on Domino. Video for the James Ford-produced track "Brick by Brick" below.
In case you somehow missed the crush of commercials on cable television, MTV has a new and possibly NSFW show called Skins based on a UK series about teens, sex, drugs, mental health and family. Skins, whose demographic seems to be "hip teens" who like nudity (read: teens) and pervy would-be pedophiles, will be celebrated at a FREE NYC party at the tail end of this week.
Rusko, Sleigh Bells, Klever, Drop the Lime, and Kill the Noise will perform at an undisclosed NYC location on January 14th. The party jumps off at 10PM and you must be 16 to get in ("16 to party, 21 to drink."). More details, and directions on how to get in are on the Facebook invite though even with an RSVP, "ENTRY BASED ON CAPACITY AND IS NOT GUARANTEED."
Sleigh Bells' "Kids" is the theme song to Skins, which premieres on Jan 17th. And the show is Sleigh Bells' only U.S. appearance in the coming months. The duo will spend the rest of January into February in Europe. All dates are listed below.
'Skins' party DJ Rusko went on a HARD Fest tour over the summer with Crystal Castles, Sinden & Destructo, though he wasn't on the bill when the tour hit NYC's Terminal 5 in August. Rusko won't be there either when Crystal Castles and Destructo play the same NYC venue on March 18th, 2011 (also a HARD show), and Rusko won't be there when HARD and Destructo return to Terminal 5, one night later, for a March 19th show with Simian Mobile Disco, Skream and Benga, and Fake Blood. Tickets are on sale. It's a "HARD Weekend" (flyer below).
Before then, Simian Mobile Disco are going on tour with Juan Maclean and Blondes (dates below). After then, Crystal Castles, Simian Mobile Disco AND RUSKO (and many others) will play the Ultra Music Festival in Florida (Friday, March 25, Saturday, March 26 and Sunday, March 27, 2011 in downtown Miami's Bicentennial Park). Currently announced lineup at the link.

Simian Mobile Disco will be DJing at Fixed's March 11th party at (Le) Poisson Rouge. The show will be first of a quarterly (4x a year) residency for the UK duo at Fixed. Tickets for the first date are on sale. The other exact NY show dates are still TBA.
SMD have some other DJ sets planned too - a few in March around the LPR show, and a few in May around Sasquach. Presumably that will also be around the time when their second quarter NYC show happens, possibly at Santos Party House where six more Fixed parties are already scheduled. Full list below.
The video for their song "Cruel intentions," which features Beth Ditto on vocals, is below. It was on their latest record, Temporary Pleasure, which came out in August 2009 on Wichita Recordings. In February, SMD released an EP, Extra Temporary, which "compiles the four tracks from the bonus second CD of Temporary Pleasure, along with the two bonus tracks from the iTunes version of the album."

Simian Mobile Disco @ the Williamsburg Waterfront (more by Bao Nguyen)
"Simian Mobile Disco has been tearing up the dance floor ever since they released their critically-acclaimed, debut record, Attack Decay Sustain Release. Hailed as "the saviours of dance music" (FADER) the duo returns to America this fall to play select shows across the country, continuing to invigorate audiences with new music from their soon to be released sophomore LP, Temporary Pleasure out on Wichita on September 15th.You can download the Beth Ditto track in the post with the Pool Party pictures.

Alex From Tokyo @ People Don't Dance No More - July 8, 2009 (David Bruno)
Hopefully you've had a good week in dance so far. Wednesday night I enjoyed some house & disco loveliness from Robot Blair, David Bruno, and Alex from Tokyo at People Don't Dance No More at the Annex. This weekend there's much more house, disco, and otherwise headed our way, starting with Saturday (7/11):
"The emails have been piling up and everyone's asking, "dude, what's up with the Pool Parties?" Well DUDE, so sorry to keep you waiting, but here at JELLY we've been working our asses off to bring you one of the greatest free concert series in history. The Pool Parties are going to be extremely crucial this year, "epic" or "amazing" as you people say these days. Seriously, eight weeks of FREE shows on the waterfront of Williamsburg? Does it get any better? You might be thinking "waterfront"? Yeah, in case you didn't hear the McCarren Pool's closed so get over it :) , and yeah we kept the name Pool Parties even though the East River's not at a pool, so what? We've still got DODGEBALL, basketball, DJ's, bands, burgers the works! We love you more than your parents ever could, and if you want to have fun and hang out with us this summer. [Full schedule below]. Bring your friends but please don't bring these things [pictured above]. As you can see below, underage drinking will not be tolerated. . You guys wouldn't do that though, so there's nothing to worry about. Thank you for visiting and stay tuned!!" -JellyThe big news here is that they finally announced! As far as this year's lineup, well, we figured most of that out already. The Black Lips will also play the show with Trail of Dead, HEALTH, and Grupo Fantasma. Jemina Pearl is also on the bill of the first show on July 12th (Mission of Burma). Full lineup poster and a video below...
