Tis the season for everybody and their brother's band to record a Christmas song, but perhaps the most interesting news of a holiday jingle comes from Wooden Shjips HQ. According to Aquarius' latest newsletter, the local kings of drone have released their versions of "O Tannenbaum" and "Auld Lang Syne," psyched- and stretched-out to 8-minutes a pop. The songs are available on cassette only (remember the cassingle?) and from the sound of things, they may even be gone by the time you read this. The band only released 100 copies, 35 of which went to Aquarius. All sales of the songs go to the San Francisco Food Bank.... no Scrooges, these dudes. -- 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.'"
