San Francisco electro-folk-rock outfit Birds and Batteries announced today that they've signed with Spune/Velvet Blue Music and plan to release their third full-length album, Panorama, on October 12. Having earned praise from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, and others -- as well as our own Anna McCarthy, when the band closed out our All Shook Down Music Festival late last month -- Birds and Batteries are steadily building a following. The band performs in Oakland on Friday before heading out across the country for a tour that will run into September. You can download "Strange Kind Of Mirror," a track from the new album, for free on the Magnet site.

  • 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.'"
