Who needs the Strokes when you have Albert Hammond Jr. making such great music all on his lonesome? The afroed Strokes guitarist put out a sweet mash note of a record in 2006's Yours To Keep. That album stripped out all the Strokes' cool-kid posturing and placed Hammond's heart right on his sleeve. It was like his main band had lightened up and fallen into crush mode. Hammond is set to release his next record, Como Te Llama? July 8. If the first single, "GfC" is any indication, Hammond has another batch of sugary pop goodies on the way. Check out "GfC" here (Quicktime Stream) or here (Windows Media Stream). -- Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.'"
