Watch: The Myonics Don't Give a Fuck About You, But You Should Maybe Give a Fuck About Them

Hey, guess what: The Myonics don't give a fuck about you! But you should maybe give a fuck, or at least two minutes and nine seconds, about them. The Myonics, by the way, are a thoroughly weird San Francisco rock band. They just released their first-ever video, for a comically poppy and slightly damaged song called, yes, "I Don't Give a Fuck About You." The song itself is both breezily melodic (you'll wanna sing along, kiddies!) and charmingly distressed, meaning that there are points when little angry tornadoes of distortion threaten to consume its jangly prettiness. Then the prettiness comes back, because the whole thing is anchored around a slackery refrain of "I Don't Give a Fuck About You," sung in Jasper Leach's nasal deadpan, which is fun. Fans of Ariel Pink, Guided by Voices, early Pavement -- and anyone who's heard and liked fellow S.F. freaks the Symbolick Jews -- this is for you.

In the video, the members stroll through S.F., carouse in the fog at a dead-end street, and play inside their dirty garage. If that sounds all very home and basic, it is, but it's also great fun:

The Myonics just played at the Knockout, and are on a West Coast tour now.

  • 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.'"
