The Invisible Cities are a promising S.F. outfit with catchy indie-pop tunes

that'd please fans of The Shins and The New Pornographers. Their

new animated video for "Bulldozer" pretty much defines adorable. Basically, a toy bulldozer that enjoys Southern Comfort and Al Green heads

out with some stuffed animal friends for a day at the beach. When they

arrive, it's closed. Oh no! But it turns out when you're a bulldozer, you

can make your own beach. See also: elephant at a lemonade stand and the

breakdancing wizard.

The video,

directed by Melissa Hung, is among several from local bands vying for a slot

in the SF Asian American Film Festival, which starts March 11; you can watch "Bulldozer" along with the other entries here. Even minus visuals, though, "Bulldozer" is a

harmony-laden merseybeat joy.

  • 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.'"
