Those wacky Northwesterners: They're not only all growing beards and sounding all woodsy, now they have wild animals trapsing through their music to boot. To wit: Blitzen Trapper, Portland's warm 'n' fuzzy popsters. The title track off their new album, "Furr," has lyrics about howling, while eerie bird calls and owl songs flit around harmonica harmonies. It's a great little track, evoking late night campire singalongs both in spirit and in the feathered creature samples in the background. You can rub up against Trapper's "Furr" here (the band swings through S.F. in early December). -- 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.'"
