    Alt-R&B singer Kelela's last visit to NYC was unfortunately canceled but she'll be back next month to headline MoMA's annual benefit / preview party The Armory Show on March 4 at MoMA's Agnes Gund Garden Lobby. The pricey gala also features a two-hour DJ set from Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor, plus additional DJ sets from Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig, plus Business Class (aka Lawrence Abu Hamdan who is also the official commissioned artist for The Armonry Show) and E*vax (Ratatat). Tickets to the party are $175, but VIP and more expensive options (like the $10k Lead Benefactor tickets) get you an early peek at MoMA's Bjork retrospective which doesn't officially open till March 8.

    Earlier this year, G.O.O.D. Music crooner Kid Cudi promised that his long-awaited Indicud album would finally see a release on April 23, but the details surrounding the set are still relatively vague.

  • Report: El-P's Cancer for Cure Record Release Show

    Last night was a big one for El-P. After emerging from the kind of semi-exile that swallows lesser rappers whole following 2007's I'll Sleep When You're Dead, El released two of the year's best rap albums, in two consecutive weeks: the incendiary Killer Mike record R.A.P. Music, which he produced entirely, and his own majestically gloomy fourth album Cancer for Cure. He is in the giddy flush of a late-career resurgence, and at Santos Party House, he gathered everyone responsible for the moment together.

  • New music: Bjork – Crystalline (Current Value remix)

    Wondering what Crystalline sounds like with a gargantuan drum'n'bassy beat shoved underneath it? Wonder no longer

Throughout her career, she's had her songs reworked by everyone from RZA to Patrick Wolf, Switch to Beck, and Ratatat to Alec Empire. Each remix has been housed either as part of a 3-CD set ("back in the day") or on heavy-weight vinyl, as with the singles from 2007's Volta album.
