San Francisco psych-pop outfit the Fresh & Onlys today announced that its third album, Play it Strange, will come out on the In The Red label October 12. Unlike previous F&O albums, Play It Strange was recorded outside the band's home-side recording space, at San Francisco's Louder Studios, with Comets on Fire and Fucking Champs producer Tim Green. Glancing at the track listing, though, it looks like we're going to get more incredibly weird lyrics from singer Tim Cohen -- and hopefully the meandering garagey guitar lines we've come to savor from this band. The Fresh & Onlys play at the Independent on September 5 with Vetiver, and have a North American tour planned for later in the fall.

  • 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.'"
