MP3 of the Day: Chumbawamba

I heard the witty "Add Me" -- a new Chumbawamba song -- on KUSF this morning and had to track it down and post it as an MP3 of the day. The lyrics are hilarious: "I’m a loner alone with neuroses and hate/ Anger is a permanent character trait/ My letter bombs are primed and they're ready to send/ Would you like to add me as a friend?" From there the band goes along in Syd Barrett sing-song mode, listing off all of this dude's poor personality traits (gun fetish, still living with mum at 50, Nazi uniform collection, voices in his head) and inviting you to add him as friend. It's such a great song, from a new album called The Boy Bands Have Won. To hear for yourself this perfect addition to everyone's MySpace and Facebook pages, click 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.'"
