The upcoming fourth album from Ratatat is streaming on NPR right now, and though there are still the staple strident guitar hooks the Brooklyn duo is known for, you can expect a more worldly sound replete with Japanese strings and expertly arranged world percussion. Void of any singing or rapping, the album contains samples and strange interludes instead, with a bit from the Terrence Malick (my favorite director) film Days of Heaven. LP4 comes out June 8.

  • 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.'"
