The Duke Spirit's excellent second album, Neptune, swaggers with the confidence of a group that has extracted the best of its influences — think Sonic Youth and PJ Harvey — into a bluesy grind all its own. The taut energy of the London band's twin guitars provides the board from which platinum-haired siren Liela Moss catapults. Live, there's a tangible bond among the Duke Spirit's members that speaks of years making such a raw ruckus together, making fans want to pogo until their kneecaps shatter.

  • 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.'"
