Sister Crayon: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jun 1 2011

The story of how Sacramento's Sister Crayon got its name is as splendidly mysterious as the band's sound itself. Back in the days when the project was Terra Lopez's solo gig and called Silent and Clementine, an inebriated Lopez once decided that it would be a good idea to pen a letter to Bianca from CocoRosie. For a reason she still doesn't seem to know, she signed the letter "Sister Crayon," and began using the moniker for her music shortly thereafter. Now a four-piece, the act's indie-rock and trip-hop features twinkling synth lines, cascading guitars, and Lopez's airy, occasionally sultry voice unfolding like a futuristic daydream. Bellow, the band's full-length debut, was released in February — we hope all random occurrences from here on out will foreshadow good things.

  • 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.'"
