This week the Walkmen released their new record, You & Me, with a very non-traditional concept behind the proceeds that should flow in from it. The band is handing over the cash that comes in to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, in honor of a little seven month old they know who is battling leukemia. We have a review of the new record here . For those wanting a little more Walkmen, Daytrotter has a couple songs the band recorded recently up for free download. Of the four tracks available, I'd recommend "I'm Your Son," a lonesome, mournful number with frontman Hamilton Leithauser sounding beaten down as he sings "I'm up the river, that's where all the work gets done." -- 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.'"
