Nothing like getting signed to a record label headed by a gigantic rock idol. Los Angeles act Everest was lucky enough to be added to the roster at Vapor Records, the label run by none other than Neil Young. The fit is easy to hear, as Russell Pollard's slow drawl and the band's country rock ballads take much influence from the iconic songwriter -- although Everest goes down a softer rock path. Their music fits with other mellow indie pop acts in the Southern California scene, and they reference artists like the late Elliott Smith and Earlimart on their Web site. The band is coming to town for Outside Lands next weekend, and for a little taste of their sound, you can check out "Rebels in the Roses" here. -- 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.'"
