Warning: Pregnant mothers, heart patients, epileptics, and those looking to avoid another acid flashback should not watch the new video for Ty Segall's "Where Your Head Goes," one of many standout tracks from the S.F. rocker's latest album, Goodbye Bread. The video pairs the song's sludgy disposition with green-screen effects of all bewildering sort -- semi-futuristic, surprisingly, but also classically psychedelic. Considering the entire clip consists of the band performing the song in a studio (well, they at one point they all lie down on the floor), it feels like quite the tripping-balls journey. And did we mention that "Where Your Head Goes" is one of the best songs from on Segall's newest, melding a heavily stumbling verse with a soaring chorus? Compared to Segall's last video, this one is simpler, and yet more arresting. Shouts out to Segall drummer and former SF Weekly music intern Emily Rose Epstein, who is the first person you'll see when you watch this clip after the jump.

  • 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.'"
