Behold San Francisco, where the threads of psych-rock never wear out. The latest arrival on the local scene is Golden Void, a supergroup of sorts featuring members of Earthless, Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound, and Eyes. Regular fans of mind-expanding rock will find plenty of good stuff here: lush canyons of riffs that rise up into searing climaxes, blazing bluesy guitar solos, and lots of those panoramic, sweeping melodies that loose, guitar-driven bands issue better than anyone. This week Golden Void celebrates the release of its debut album on Thrill Jockey, a Chicago label that has long nurtured the Bay Area's trippiest rockers.

  • 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.'"
