Le Loup 

Wednesday, Oct 21 2009

Le Loup plies a breathy jumble — all globe-trotting rhythms and experimental pop — that is very much of its time. The three-year-old D.C. troupe recently followed up its mouthful of a debut, 2007's The Throne of the Third Heaven of the Nations' Millennium General Assembly, with the curtly titled Family. Both came out on Hardly Art, the Sub Pop offshoot specializing in more modest bands, and Le Loup fits the bill. There's something intimate and small-scale about each album, even as freaky swaths of instruments and influences come into play.

  • 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.'"
