I didn’t think LA’s Rhye could get much more sensual, and then yesterday Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth dropped a remix of the electronic duo’s excellent “Open.” Hemsworth makes great, often emotive mood music for hip-hop fans, and I imagine he’ll be rolling out plenty of pop remixes and original cuts when he plays the Bottom Lounge tonight.

The Reader‘s Soundboard page has a collection of shows you should know about while making weekend plans. There’s XXYYXX at Schubas on Friday; Joe Diffie at the Congress Theater, Eels at the Vic, and Shofar at Heaven Gallery on Sunday; and Painted Palms at Schubas and Shofar with Josh Berman & Jason Stein at the Hungry Brain on Sunday. Fans of Americana should check out Dunn Dunn Fest, which began yesterday at the Tonic Room and wraps up tomorrow night. Read up on some more recommendations from our writers after the jump.
