JOHN TAL­ABOT But­ton Fac­tory, Dublin To­mor­row 9pm ¤20 01-6709202 John Tal­abot’s third work­ing trip to Ire­land in 2012 comes at the end of a mag­nif­i­cent year for the Barcelona-based pro­ducer (right). His de­but al­bum, Fin, is one of the year’s finest, but even be­fore it landed, Tal­abot was much ac­claimed for his bliss­ful, de­tailed, soul­ful elec­tronic mu­sic. Take a lis­ten to his remixes for The xx, Teen­girl Fan­tasy ( Cheaters is a time­less clas­sic) and Glasser, for in­stance, and take note of his handi­work. On Fin, Tal­abot’s tal­ent for shap­ing melodies that glis­ten and glow, cre­at­ing more than just a col­lec­tion of dance­floor tracks, is abun­dantly clear on what is a deep, dis­tinc­tive, sub­lime, hugely sat­is­fy­ing record.

Sup­port for Tal­abot, who will play a full live show with his band at this spe­cial Body & Soul win­ter out­ing, in­clude the ex­cel­lent Nanu Nau, Def Disko and New Jack­son. Luke Vib­ert heads to the Elec­tric Un­der­ground (Fri, Cork); Christ­mas hoo­ley (Sat, Gal­way); and Ju­nior Spesh’s party for the end of the world (Thurs, Dublin)
