Local spaz-punks XBXRX have turned to the Radiohead model of releasing a digital recording: give the public the goods for free, in hopes that fans will dutifully donate some cash to the band (although we imagine this carrot doesn't come with the stick of a high-priced box set at the other end).

Fans of the high-speed, high-energy Oakland act can grab a copy of its fifth album, Un Usper from the band's Web site, where the members note: "The band invested considerable time and money to bring this recording into existance. Yr donation would be appreciated." Invite the glorious chaos of mismatched beats, loud guitar bleats, and general sonic roughhousing onto your home computer for the price of having a conscience, whatever value you wanna give that one.

  • 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.'"
