Myron & E: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Dec 11 2013

Myron Glasper and his collaborator, E, met and started playing together while touring with Bay Area rap juggernaut Blackalicious. But the music on their Stones Throw debut album, On Broadway, looks much further back than backpack hip-hop. This is an old-time R&B vocal duo, the songs spiked with reverb-drenched guitars, funky bass lines, and aching refrains — even a few saccharine string-section interludes. As stylish as they are soulful, Myron & E are building a name for themselves as local members of their L.A. label's growing stable of neo-R&B acts. They haven't quite made an impact in their home region yet, but look for that to change. Songs like the softly melancholy title track and the effortlessly muscular "Do It Do It Disco" are too fun to be ignored.

  • 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.'"
