Ononos is minimal electronic music on cough syrup in outer space. And I dig it. The one song this Seattle act has posted on its MySpace page, "You Are Love" comprises grainy techno beats buffeting eerie echoes of the repeated phrases "We love you," "You love us," and "You are loved" like some extraterrestrial Muppet off its meds. While the song is truly bizarre in every way, the fact that this robotic creature is stuttering about love gives this Ononos character a playful edge to its sharp art angles. -- 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.'"
