Macca will join Morrissey, Modest Mouse, Spoon, Run The Jewels, How To Dress Well, Snoop Dogg, Tycho, Sturgill Simpson, Sylvan Esso, Zola Jesus, Rustie, Le1f and many more at the fest which happens June 18-21 at the Woodlands in Dover, DE.

McCartney was just in NYC for a surprise Valentine's Day show and an appearance on the SNL 40th Anniversary special. He since spent some time skiing in Vermont, much to the delight of the J.J. Hapgood General Store & Eatery in Peru.

Nardwuar struck again, interviewing his Vancouver neighbors White Lung and pulling out all his usual tricks. He presents Mish Way with a record from a band her friend used to be in, and Hether Fortune with a band that WL drummer Anne-Marie Vassiliou used to be in. He quotes an old interview with guitarist Kenny Williams saying "I really wish I was more popular, I just try so fucking hard but people just ignore me, why don't they understand?" (Kenny says he was joking), asks Hether what's the most amount of money she's had thrown at her after a show, asks Mish what it's like to shit in a bag, and other awkward/funny questions. Watch the whole video for yourself, below.
White Lung don't have a tour announced at the moment, but it was announced today that they'll return to NYC for Governors Ball (June 5-7), where they'll be the heaviest band by far.
Nardwuar also just posted new interviews with Andy Milonakis and Zedd. Watch all three below...

Jamie xx w/ The xx in Austin in 2013 (more by Tim Griffin)
It was recently announced that NYC EDM festival Electric Zoo would be returning this year with drug-sniffing dogs, patdowns, plainclothes security officers, and a required anti-drug PSA after last year's festival resulted in two drug-related deaths (and one reported case of sexual assault and 31 arrests) which cancelled day 3.
Now the initial lineup has been announced and amongst all the EDM heavy hitters is The xx's Jamie xx. Other than that, it's the typical E Zoo type stuff you probably want to steer clear of like David Guetta, Zedd, Armin Van Buuren, Laidback Luke, Kaskade, Benny Benassi, Datsik, and more, plus many more TBA. They've been known to add cool stuff as the fest approaches, so stay tuned.
Electric Zoo goes down Labor Day Weekend (8/29-31) on Randall's Island. Tickets are on sale now. Full initial lineup below...

Passion Pit / Vampire Weekend / Amanda Palmer / devoted fan
The final day of the fest gave us sets by a number of artists including Haim, Toro y Moi, Matt & Kim, Vampire Weekend, The Walkmen, and Passion Pit, whose set was cut short. Reports Fuse...
On Sunday Passion Pit also had problems with their vocals, but in this case the culprit wasn't technical... it was allergies.We missed Toro y Moi and The Walkmen in part due to the rain that showed up that day too, but everything we did see is pictured in this post.
Clearly the Firefly fates have it in for Passion Pit. Last year the band had to cancel their performance at the fest so that frontman Michael Angelakos could undergo treatment for his bipolar disorder. This year they at least got to take the stage, but only for an abbreviated set.
Diving right in with "I'll Be Alright," "The Reeling" and "Carried Away," the band - and in particular drummer Nate Donmoyer and bassist Jeff Apruzzese - displayed a powerful musicianship that explodes in a live setting much more so than on record. Only after slowing things down for "To Kingdom Come" did Angelakos confess to the crowd that he needed help singing, because allergies had caused him to lose his voice. He also referenced last year's cancellation by saying he "can't catch a f-cking break with this festival."
Just seven songs in, Angelakos raised the white flag, admitting "I don't know how long I can go." At that point the band threw out their setlist and chose to "wrap this up with songs people know."
We at BrooklynVegan also took over a stage in the Soundwave tent with our hosts Dave Hill and Billy Jones each day from 1-3pm. On the Sunday of the festival we had Trails and Ways and Amanda Palmer stop by for live performances and interviews. They were both great, but naturally Amanda left us with the most to talk about, not just from the day but from the whole weekend. A loyal crowd showed up to see her at 2pm and she proceeded to take requests, play 'Happy Birthday' and the "best song she ever wrote" which ended up being 'The Truth'. She invited one lucky fan to play ukulele and that fan ended up being Sabrina who killed it with a Gotye cover. She ended her set with a group singalong to 'Creep' which started in our tent and ended in the middle of the field.

TOKiMONSTA at SS Coachella 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
THUMP is VICE's new electronic site and they're celebrating the launch of Up Next, "the destination for what's next in dance music," with a free show in NYC on Hudson River Park's Pier 84 on June 20. (That's the old River Rocks spot.) The show is being headlined by Zedd, but it'd be worth stopping by for the openers, Duke Dumont and TOKiMONSTA. The show also will have "interactive fireworks inspired by the artists' music" and a custom LED structure for the artists to perform in. Plus, there's an open bar (so the show is 21+).
Duke Dumont just had his big single, "Need U (100%)" remixed by porn star Jessie Andrews (who doubles as DJ). Check out that remix (via Noisey) below...

An updated list of dates and the video for "Wildest Moments" below...
by Andrew Sacher
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.
A list of all dates and song streams below...

Lollapalooza (more by Grant MacAllister)
Chicago Sun Times reports:
Lollapalooza has revealed its official 2012 list of performers -- a typically wide-ranging smorgasbord of genres and styles topped by nearly a dozen mainstage headliners: the Red Hot Chili Peppers, freshly reunited bands Black Sabbath and At the Drive-In, the Black Keys, Jack White, Florence + The Machine, the Shins and Passion Pit, plus spotlighted electronic music including Swedish house titan Avicii, French dance duo Justice and DJ-producer Bassnectar.Check out the full list below...
The annual music festival is scheduled for Aug. 3-5 in Chicago's Grant Park.
Rumored lineups have circulated widely, as they usually do, and Lollapalooza itself stoked the speculation in recent weeks via a series of CTA and online advertisements that seemed to hint at who would be playing.
The ads featured lyrics from such acts as Sigur Ros, Santigold, Jack White, Kimbra, Twin Shadow, the Weeknd, Bloc Party and more -- all bands that wound up on the bill.
