You'll have to wait til November to see Juan Maclean kick it live-band style with LCD Soundsytem -- holy christ, that tour is gonna own -- but tonight the Juan in Juan Maclean, better known to some in these parts as Six Finger Satellite's John Maclean, is coming down to spin some records between bands.

WATCH: The Juan Maclean, "Give Me Every Little Thing" (video, opens in RealPlayer)
LISTEN: Parts & Labor, "A Great Divide" (mp3)
LISTEN: Badman, "City Lights" (mp3)

MITTENS + PANTS YELL + HATS & GLASSES + THE TEETH
For the sartorially inclined, these accessories-to-rock are looking sharp. Mittens? They’re handy — with a hook, an off-kilter rhythm, an elliptical love song. Pants Yell? Leggy isn’t quite the word, but they look great in blue jeans as they bash out their cryptic bedroom pop. Hats and Glasses are heady, for sure. And the Teeth? Dunno. Shirty, perhaps?

SECRET DIARY + HIVE MIND + CORNUCOPIA + LUASA RAELON
With fathoms-deep drones that alternate between horrifying and gorgeous, Hive Mind are leading the voting for NEST Act Most Likely To Make You Curl Into The Fetal Position. That late-night, empty-house, dead-lump-in-your-stomach feeling? Hive Mind can give it to you in broad daylight. This shit is Brian Eno on peyote, Richard D. James during a blackout. Viva analog synths!
