Disclosure @ Glasslands - 10/24/2012 (photo via Jess)
As we warned you back in July (and yesterday when tickets went back on sale), UK bass duo Disclosure are visiting North America for the first time this week, starting with a sold out dance show at Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn last night (10/24), and continuing this evening at a sold out Mercury Lounge. How was the first show? The tour continues to Canada before stopping at Moogfest and then Chicago, etc. All dates are re-listed below.
The U.S. shows come just as two remixes for their single "Latch", featuring vocals by Sam Smith, were released to iTunes via their new label PMR Records (Jessie Ware, Two Inch Punch, Julio Bashmore). One of those remixes, by T. Williams, can be streamed along with the original below...

Dam-Funk @ American Museum of Natural History (more by Rod Mickens)
LA Times: How did you end up hooking up with Animal Collective to remix "Summertime Clothes?"That Dam-Funk Animal Collective remix is posted above. The L.A. DJ, whose named is pronounced "Dame," (short for his real name Damon) will open for AC at both of their Prospect Park shows on August 14th and 15th. It's unclear exactly whether these shows should be classified as "DJ", or "live", or a mix of both, but a show Dam played in an LA museum earlier this month definitely leaned toward the live side of things, as you can see in the two videos below.
Dam-Funk: Animal Collective's manager reached out to me because the group wanted to collaborate with me. I dug their material and we agreed to do something. I studied their song, I didn't just chop it up and put effects on it -- I studied it hard, and shaped it around the vocal to take them to the dance floor, but still have something that you could ride around with your girl and listen to. I understood that the band's fans are sensitive to the source material. It's like Prince -- if someone remixed Prince back in the day, I would've been waiting with baited breath.
I was pleased that the majority of people seemed to like it. When I saw Animal Collective at the Troubadour, one of them told me that he couldn't stop listening to it on repeat, and that meant a lot to me. I really respect those dudes and wanted to get down with them. For lack of a better description, they sort of remind me of Talking Heads, how they were into expanding their sound and collaborating with George Clinton. I love that aspect of collaborating with different types of artists. Nite Jewel has become a good buddy of mine, because we like those same type of chords. No matter what type of genre, if it's beautiful music, that's what we'll lean towards.
The LA museum show is not to be confused with the NYC museum show, which took place in May.
Dam will also be at the Cubic Zirconia record release party at Santos on Thursday, July 2nd. He'll be spinning (definitely a DJ set this time) with DJ Assault, Kool Hersh and Mike 2600. Live sets that night include Cubic Zirconia, Head Automatica and Chico Mann. Advance tickets for that night are on sale (poster below).
Dam-Funk's debut LP, Toeachizown, will be seeing a late summer/early fall release on Stones Throw Records. The DJ discusses his new record, with a preview video for it, some other videos with all dates, below...

Merriweather Post Pavilion record (craigowaffles)
The album the Chicago Tribune and Stereogum.com have already dubbed one of the best of the week-old year, Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion, could make some serious news next week when the Nielsen SoundScan numbers come out.You can grab Dave Wrangler's new remix of "My Girls" above...
Why? The album, which won't get released on CD until January 20, dropped on January 6 in a deluxe double-LP 180-gram gatefold vinyl format accompanied by a full album download. And thanks to a series of listening parties across the country, it just might break into the albums chart next week, thanks to vinyl sales only. [MTV]
