Pita: Editions Mego-founder & harvester of the avant-garde returns after more than a decade. With the independent, hotbed Editions Mego label (formerly Mego), Peter Rehberg has released music by a myriad of Le Guess Who? 2016 acts, including Fennesz, Stephen O'Malley, Container, Klara Lewis and Phurpa. After more than a decade, Rehberg finally revived his own moniker Pita this year. New album Get In's glinting, fractured soundscapes examines the paradox of intimidation and beauty, the human and the tool, the improvised and composed. With thanks to Wilco for inviting Rehberg, we’ll get the chance to experience this dystopian sonic journey live as part of our 10th Anniversary Edition. Listen to Get In:

Scott Fagan: a great long-lost psych-folk voice from the 60s, performing live in Europe for the very first time. Fagan's deeply soulful masterpiece, 'South Atlantic Blues' (1968) is a gorgeous synthesis of Donovan-ish pop, jazz, R&B and Caribbean sounds, with a grandiose vocal delivery that recalls Scott Walker and Bowie. Fagan recorded the album when he was just 21 and virtually homeless. The album sadly fizzled into obscurity, before being rediscovered in 2013. Fagan (who was later discovered to be the biological father of Magnetic Fields' Stephin Merritt) is finally receiving recognition for being the trailblazer that he is, and at Le Guess Who? 2016, he will perform 'South Atlantic Blues' in full—marking one of his first ever European shows. Listen to 'South Atlantic Blues':
