Short and Sweet: Brilliant Colors' New Single "Never Mine"

"Never Mine," the jangly new single from female S.F. garage-pop trio Brilliant Colors, is just the kind of track we need on a Monday. It's short -- only 1:49! -- but crisp, catchy and a little ragged around the edges. Singer-guitarist Jess Scott has a hurried howl that kicks off right away. Her band mates play like they just threw it all together in a hurry, but the result is more sweet than sloppy. It's a delicious follow up to their 2009 debut full-length, Introducing. Recorded by local psych hero Ty Segall, the "Never Mine" single is out now on Slumberland records; mail order copies even come on green vinyl.

  • 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.'"
