The Moondoggies, a band with a name like a microbrew that really kicks out the jams. The song we have on offer today, "Changing," takes a man's inner struggle to open up to the one he loves and turns it into a loud, rowdy, rousing group chorus as the dude wavers between being more trustworthy and realizing he's just too burned out to be anything different. You'd never guess such an inner argument was difficult, though, listening to the music alone: the song is a gorgeous, dark tangle of electric guitar, Rhodes organ, and "cosmic country" gone wild. Incredible track. And available for free download from Moondoggie's labels' website, Hardly Art. The Moondoggies, and all their heavenly harmonies, land in San Francisco on Oct. 18 at Slim's. -- 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.'"
