Woods: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Aug 1 2012

As a state with a population of over 37 million, condensing California into one container — metaphorically or otherwise — would be quite a feat. But the Brooklyn band Woods attempts to do just that on "Cali in a Cup," a handsome, laid-back, and sunlit number infused with just the right dose of harmonica. The song, which will appear on the group's forthcoming seventh album, Bend Beyond, is another slice of warm indie-folk from the prolific and self-sufficient players also responsible for small label Woodsist and this weekend's corresponding Woodsist Festival in Big Sur. In a 2011 interview, Woods member G Lucas Crane described his act's aesthetic as not being about a sound but "an intent" and "heart" — an altogether believable sentiment.

  • 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.'"
