Brooklyn's Lemonade, whose new album Diver comes out later this month via True Panther, will play a local show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 2 with Teengirl Fantasy and Elite Gymnastics. Tickets go on sale Wednesday (5/16) at noon.
Last month, Lemonade released a 12" for Diver single, "Neptune" featuring remixes from Mike Simonetti, Sinjin Hawke, Pasternak, and Jacques Renault. Grab the original HERE and stream all four remixes below.
The MHOW show will be the first NYC show for Minneapolis K-Pop influenced electronic duo Elite Gymnastics, who just wrapped up a tour with Sleigh Bells and Javelin. They've got a bunch of free releases on their tumblr, including the recently released RUIN 3, which compiles covers and remixes of tracks from the impressive RUIN 1 and 2, which have since been combined for a not-free vinyl release on Acephale. RUIN 3 includes remixes by CFCF, LOL Boys, and Physical Therapy and a cover by How to Dress Well, all of which you can download above or stream below. It also includes remixes by Natalie Bootleg and Anime Skyscraper, the latter of which you can stream below.
Their next release, RUIN 4, is available for pre-order at the Acephale webstore as a bundle with poster, buttons, and t-shirt. The CD includes two previously unreleased tracks from the RUIN sessions, all of RUIN 3, and more TBA.
