Stop us if you've heard enough, but we've got even more to share with you from the long-overdue debut record by the San Francisco ex-pats of Lazer Sword. We're only a couple weeks away from the release date of Low Limit's and Lando Kal's Lazer Sword album (it'll be available on November 2 through Innovative Leisure), but the boys were kind enough to give us a more in-depth taste of what that long-player holds in the form of a mini-mix of the whole record.

Amidst enjoyably non-sequitur samples (like the infamous "Congratulations! You won!" spam message) and other crafty audio blips, brief snippets of Lazer Sword's 15-track record are delivered at the production duo's whim. There's a lot of floating space noise, woozy synth sounds, ultra-slick basslines, massive dancefloor grooves, varied vocal performances, and more energetic turbo-crunk/lazer-bass/whatchamacallit trademarks in the six-and-a-half-minute teaser. You can listen to that whirlwind of electronics and beat work here. And if you want more, download a brand-new remix of Lazer Sword's "I'm Gone," which features Bay Area hyphy icon Turf Talk, by UK producer Rustie, here.

  • 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.'"
