This post has been updated. See below for details

The local indie label IAMSOUND has had some luck in getting hipsters to go west of La Brea for its Mondrian Sessions, a series of poolside concerts at the West Hollywood hotel featuring rising acts such as Lykke Li, Feist, Cults and others. Now, they've set a fall lineup with a few adventurous electronica acts.

The electropop siren Little Boots, an unexpected smash at Coachella 2010, leads off this weekend acoustically on Friday, followed by the San Francisco-based experimental art-rock ensemble NewVillager on Oct. 20 and the U.K. beat-music producer SBTRKT on Oct. 24. Even though it's not quite pool weather anymore, it's an excellent stand-by-a-pool-and-watch-bands season right now.
