Young Prisms

With vocals firmly couched in and each song haloed with reverb, locals Young Prisms come from a school of hazy pop typified by Slumberland Records. This band isn't on that label, though. Like increasingly more acts, Young Prisms have liberally spread their releases over different imprints. There was a self-titled, five-song EP on Mexican Summer this year, plus another EP and split cassette elsewhere. The quintet's latest song, the bratty yet appealing "Amanda Brown," will soon emerge as a 7-inch. There's no rush for an album, then, but the live show should unite those fleeting portions into a solid meal.

  • 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.'"
