Pretty Lights has never been one to disappoint- and he’s not about to start now. The enigmatic super-producer has stayed true to his promise of releasing three EP’s in 2010…and deliver, he has! Glowing In The Darkest Night, the third installment of his trilogy of 2010’s EPs, was made available this past Friday, October 22nd via his website, www.PrettyLightsMusic.com.

2010 has been quite an exciting year for Pretty Lights. Besides releasing his trilogy of EP’s, Derek Vincent Smith (accompanied by live drummer Adam Deitch) has been busy touring the U.S. and Europe, including many festival appearances on both sides of the Atlantic. He recently surpassed one million album downloads through his website- not bad for an artist who has only been releasing music since 2008. He even surprised his one millionth downloader with a VIP trip to catch him later this month in Las Vegas!

Pretty Lights is touring extensively to support Glowing In The Darkest Night, with the North American tour kicking off Wednesday in Tulsa, and continuing through early December. There’s a New Year’s Eve run of shows taking place at The Congress Theater in Chicago on December 30th and 31st! Supporting the shows will be Major Lazer on the 30th, and Holy Fuck on the 31st.

The 10th annual Siren Festival brought a star-studded lineup to Coney Island, and thousands of music lovers lined to the sultry, beachfront section of Brooklyn. Despite temperatures soared into the lower 90s with no relief until sundown, the enthusiasm was just as intense as the heat. With the main stage hovering in the shadow of the notorious “Cyclone” rollercoaster, big crowds and great music were there from start to finish. Surfer Blood, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart,
Ted Leo and the Pharmacists all led up to the headlining Brooklyn-based duo of Matt & Kim.

Simultaneously, there was a secondary stage located just 3 blocks away on Stillwell Avenue. The lineup there featured Wye Oak, Harlem, Cymbals Eat Guitars, before Holy Fuck capped it off. With that star power, and crowds that were just as large, you’d be hard pressed to even call it a “secondary stage”.

With band/festival merchandise, free giveaways and music, and vendors selling refreshing cold drinks and delicious food all in a magical setting, Siren Festival definitely has gained a reputation for being one of the city’s premier summer events.

Disclaimer: If you wanted to see electro-pop duo Woodhands play with Kids on TV and Holy Fuck on October 25, 2006 you had to follow these instructions: “1. Go to Sherbourne subway station. 2. In a newspaper box there will be maps that will show you how to walk from Sherbourne station to the Don Valley Brick Works! 3. The walk will be along a path bordered by bright orange tape. 4. Once you get there, it’s pay what you can + you should also bring your own booze.”

These were the instructions one had to follow to attend the first-ever performance by Toronto duo Woodhands in 2006 (Relive that night here!), a journey the band has now revisited several years later with the help of director Rob Pilichowski. Now, several years later with an acclaimed debut album and performances around the world under their belt, Woodhands are set to embark on a 17-date tour of Canada and the United States with Junior Boys before returning to the studio to complete the follow-up to 2008′s critically acclaimed debut Heart Attack. The band’s second album, Remorsecapade, is set to be released on Paper Bag Records on January 26th 2010. The band has also recently contributed a remix to label-mate and bloggeshire champion CFCF’s latest EP, The Explorers (featuring Sally Shapiro), released last week on Paper Bag Digital.

Check out the band’s City Sonic video at the link above, where Dan Werb and Paul Banwatt revisit the Don Valley Brickworks site to recount their memories of the “illegal party” that went down with Holy Fuck in 2006. City Sonic is a cross-platform documentary series of short films about extraordinary artists shot in places where their musical lives were transformed. The Woodhands segment premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival’s “TIFF in Concert” program last month.

Since dropping their debut in April 2008, Woodhands has been touring constantly with dates North America, Japan, China, and Europe. Along with their hectic touring schedule, Dan and Paul have also been cranking out remixes and cover tracks (including a version of ‘Electric Avenue’ blessed by Eddy Grant himself) and have been attracting high-level praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, NME and Q Magazine which named Woodhands as one of “The Ten Best New Bands On Earth” in their post-SXSW issue this year.
