MP3 of the Day: Hex Dispensers

I've been really digging Austin garage punks Hex Dispensers for a while now. Their gothic Ramones sound comprises traces of the Wipers and a perverted fascination with criminal behavior. The group's debut, self-titled album was infested with lover -assassins, television-haunting ghosts, and arsenic milkshakes. On the tight tunesmith's new (excellent) follow-up, Winchester Mystery House, the Texans continue putting the fun back into funereal, with tracks about doomsday, phantom limbs, and obits. Check out  "I've Got My Doppelganger On"  which explodes like a warehouse of illegal fireworks on the chorus. Happy holiday weekend, and mark your calendars for the Hex Dispensers' upcoming San Francisco show on Friday, June 17 at Annie's--a party that doubles as the 11th birthday bash for Red Devil Records.

  • 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.'"
