Tanlines at Webster Hall - 11/29/12 (via Olivia Overall)
NYC synth pop band Tanlines (who made Kurt Braunohler's year-end list headlined their largest hometown show yet on November 29 at Webster Hall with Supreme Cuts (who made FACT's year-end list) and Jim E-Stack. They also just appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night (12/6) to perform "All of Me" off of their 2012 LP, Mixed Emotions. You can check out a video of that performance below.

FACT is still one of the best sources for cutting edge electronic music, and I always look forward to their top 50 albums of the year list, which they've just published for 2012. As usual, it doesn't only contain electronic albums.
This year's list has a good deal of indie rap (Haleek Maul, Schoolboy Q, Le1f, Main Attrakionz, Spaceghostpurrp) and it's the only non-metal list I've seen so far with Black Breath's Sentenced to Life (!). And of course, to compliment the dancefloor records, it's got its fair share of electronic-tinged indie pop, forward thinking R&B, and outsider experimental music.
Check out the full list below.

Main Attrakionz at BV-SXSW 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Earlier this month, we mentioned that iPhone/Android app Mobli was throwing a CMJ party with Heems, Sasha Go Hard, Kitty Pryde, Weekend Money, SAFE, The Underachievers, and Party Supplies. That party was supposed to happen today at Delinquency but that venue has since been shut down so the whole lineup (minus The Underachievers and Party Supplies) is merging with the Young One Records showcase, which happens tonight (10/17) at 285 Kent. That showcase, in addition to including the names mentioned above, will have Main Attrakionz, Kool AD, Deniro Farrar, Supreme Cuts, Cities Aviv, Bryant Dope, Ryan Hemsworth, and CBG. SAFE and Ryan Hemsworth are DJing between sets, the rest of the acts are playing live. The show flier and set times are below.
That 285 Kent show is a pretty stacked bill for hip hop, and if you're into stacked hip hop shows like that one, you'll also probably want to check out the Mass Appeal party at Gramercy on Friday (10/19) with Asher Roth, Prodigy (of Mobb Deep), The Alchemist, Large Professor, Mr. Muthafuckin' exquire, Roc Marciano, Boldy James, Ninja Sonik, Bodega Bamz, Alexander Spit, Angel Haze and Timeless Youth. That one's free with RSVP to RSVP@massappeal.com but entry is based on capacity. The flier for this show is below.
As mentioned, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire also plays SOB's on Thursday (10/18) and an MTV Studio at Webster Hall the same day. That studio show is with Big K.R.I.T. and LE1F, and when we first mentioned it, a "special guest" was billed who has since been revealed as Killer Mike. Tickets for that one are still available.
That MTV show is an early show (5:30 doors) and after that there's a late show with Chuck Inglish (of The Cool Kids), Ninjasonik, ASAP TyY, Blvckalfred, Vault Boys, MopTop, Chase N Cashe, GDP, Vyle, and Curtains. Tickets for that one are still available.
Cities Aviv, in addition to the Young One show, has other CMJ shows, including the Flowerbooking CMJ showcase at Knitting Factory on Friday (10/19) with Unicorn Kid, Ki:Theory, Devin, Ghost Wave, and Talk Normal (tickets) and the Bond Music Group/PopGun show at Cameo Gallery on Friday (10/19) (late show) with Steven A. Clark, Lushlife, Dark Sister, and Pegasus Warning (tickets).
He also plays the free BrooklynVegan day party at Public Assembly on Saturday (10/20) with The Orwells, Eternal Summers, and the rest of the lineup coming soon!
While we're talking about good hip hop shows during CMJ, don't forget the Converse Rubber Tracks/Fool's Gold 5th anniversary show at Music Hall of WIlliamsburg on Saturday (10/20) with Ghostface Killah, A-Trak, Flosstradamus, Donnis, Nick Catchdubs, World's Fair, Troy Ave, and special guests. That one's totally free, first come, first served.
Showcase flier and set times for the Young One/Mobli show are below.
The-Drum in Chicago in April (more by Tyler Trykowski)
Three duos from the burgeoning Chicago beat scene, Supreme Cuts, The-Drum, and Sich Mang, will make their way to NYC for a show at Glasslands on July 20. The show is also with Brooklyn-born rapper Haleek Maul (who now lives in Barbados), whose Oxyconteen EP (which you can stream below or download above) features production from The-Drum and Supreme Cuts. Tickets for the Glasslands show are on sale now.
Supreme Cuts will release their new album, Whispers in the Dark, on July 10 via Dovecote Records, and you can download a track from that release above or stream it below. The Glasslands show is also acting as a release show for that album. In August, they head out on tour with Polica. All of their dates are listed below.
The-Drum and Sich Mang put out a split release earlier this year, which features two original tracks by each duo and remixes of each other's work. You can stream the whole thing or download it for $5 at bandcamp.
The-Drum, who played our BV Chicago stage at SXSW this year and another BV Chicago event before that, is also set to release a new EP, Sense Net, on July 17 via Mishka. You can stream the single from that, "/SYS," below.
A list of all dates and streams below...
Ava Luna is playing Mercury Lounge on August 11. Tickets for that show go on sale today at noon.
When we first mentioned the Gotye show at Williamsburg Park with Zammuto, tickets were set to go on sale Friday, June 8 at noon. Tickets will now go on sale Friday, June 8 at 10 AM. Gotye's Radio City show goes on sale June 8 at 10 Am as well.
Wise Blood on the Glasslands balcony (more by Ryan Muir)
Those wanting to catch both Picturepane and Wise Blood can do so for free on Saturday courtesy of Jelly & The Morgan. Those wanting to catch them both even sooner have a decision to make tonight (9/1). You can head to Cameo to catch Pictureplane along with Autre Ne Veut, or instead choose Glasslands where Wise Blood plays with Cities Aviv, and D'eon.
Regardless of which you choose, you can spend the later portion of your night at Glasslands with Chicago's Supreme Cuts who will be handling the "late night show" and promise they have some "very special things lined up". In honor of their visit to Brooklyn they made us an exclusive mixtape which you can listen to below (it's the "Trouble: Club Paradise Mix). While you're down there you'll also find a mix they did for Fader who wrote "Chicago newcomers Supreme Cuts call their sound Future RnB, a surprisingly apt title for their seamless mash of sultry vocals and gritty post-dub beats."
Wise Blood return to the NYC stage on October 20th at Le Poisson Rouge for a Windish CMJ showcase with Art vs. Science, Penguin Prison, Mr. Little Jeans, Chad Valley, Data Romance and Geographer. All tour dates and mixes below...
