Marice Bolen is known by some to as Jack White's ex, and to others as the Von Bondies' ex. But she's paired with a new musical partner these days, making up one half of the band Silverghost. The music she makes in this current Detroit act (with Deleano Acevedo) is fuzzed out pop paired down to the basics and plumped with a little attitude (sample lyric: "You're just not that important.") You can download the haunting track "Whatever Happened to Gentlemen" off the band's MySpace site, where more of the band's warm, analog aesthetic is up for the streaming. The band hits the Knockout for a live show on Monday, Sept. 1. -- 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.'"
