Call their songs whatever you want — covers, reinterpretations, rip-offs — but with their YouTubed recreations of pop hits like Beyoncé's "Single Ladies," Marin couple Nataly Dawn and Jack Conte of Pomplamoose have created a genuine Internet phenomenon. Working within set parameters (mainly, that every instrument used in a song is shown in the video at some point), their self-produced and played songs rival the polish of million-dollar studios despite coming from what is essentially an instrument-stuffed bedroom. Their fledging project has become a business, too: with 2 to 6 million YouTube views for most of their videos, Dawn and Conte earn a comfortable living from the Internet's free video behemoth.

  • 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.'"
