Wymond Miles: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Oct 16 2013

Although best known for his gorgeous leads and glacial sustain in local guitar-pop romantics the Fresh & Onlys, Wymond Miles' solo career is on an impressive ascent. His debut last year, Under the Pale Moon, dealt in ornate and lofty arrangements tempered by the drama of '80s goth rock. With a haircut eerily like some lost early-'90s member of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Miles has an expressive and distinct voice that carries lyrics rife with literary symbolism and mystical indulgence. Miles' sophomore release, Cut Yourself Free, peels back the instrumental layers to animate the characters in his lyrics. Clearly, Miles' uniqueness and versatility as a solo artist is at the very least tantamount to his contributions in the Fresh & Onlys.

    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.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
