Pitchfork Music Festival Adds Some Local Flavor

The Pitchfork Music Festival just made its second lineup announcement, including the first Chicago acts to be confirmed: former Sharp Darts subjects Chrissy Murderbot and How to Dress Well. Gossip Wolf's prediction that Shabazz Palaces and Gang Gang Dance would show up on the bill turned out to be on the money, but we're still waiting on news regarding Helium/Sleater-Kinney/Minders supergroup Wild Flag (currently cruising on a ton of SXSW buzz). Unretired lo-fi gods Guided by Voices, middlebrow chanteuse Neko Case, and fuzz-punk outfit No Age (who just pissed off a bunch of NYC frat boys with an ambient noise set) are among the other new additions.

Chrissy Murderbot has an album, Women's Studies, set to drop this spring on Chicagophilic British dance label Planet Mu, which has been issuing records by local footwork producers like crazy. Murderbot recently debuted the video for his own footwork-laced single "Bussin' Down." It's after the jump, along with the full Pitchfork lineup as it currently stands.
