Ghostface: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Apr 3 2013

The Wu-Tang Clan is in the midst of a mini-revival at the moment. Head honcho RZA directed and starred in The Man With the Iron Fists. GZA is working on a long-promised new album. And Ghostface has teamed up with Los Angeles-based producer Adrian Younge for their new album, 12 Reasons to Die. With Ghost taking on the role of a "black vigilante killer," Younge channels the vibe of '70s Italian horror and suspense flicks. Unsurprisingly, then, the rhyming of Ghost (and assorted Wu cohorts) tells a brutal story of vengeance and payback. With RZA having given Younge advice on how to best channel Ghost's high-strung chops, you can rest assured the outcome is a legitimate new entry in the Wu catalog.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
