The Sound the Hare Heard

Kill Rock Stars is owned by Slim Moon, a man who has better taste in music than you do. His ears are irrefutably sharp: The KRS roster is a dense handbook on indie-underground innovators and breakthrough wonders ranging from Sleater-Kinney and Elliott Smith to the Gossip and Xiu Xiu. So when the guy handpicks a selection of artists for a compilation — both alums of the label and non-Killers — it would be a damned shame not to expose yourself to it. The Sound the Hare Heard reflects the growing trend for folk-inspired singer/songwriters with hearts as big as the state of Washington. Every track is perfect for smooth transitions on rainy-day mixtapes, with a list that includes stellar songs from Devin Davis, Southerly, Jeff Hanson, Death Vessel, Sufjan Stevens, Lovers, and Wooden Wand, among others.

  • 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.'"
