Legs is a newish indie-pop band from Oakland whose two original members, Jeffrey Harland and Matt Bullimore, met in a parking lot while trading Weezer bootlegs. They eventually started the band that became Legs -- a melodic low-key five-piece that will release its debut album on Loglady Records April 23.

First single "Two Colours" features sometime-vocalist Ameilia Adams on the low vocals, and puts all this band's strengths on display: buoyant melodies, understated (nearly lo-fi) production, and an interesting major/minor tension. The video is rather odd, but suits the song well: It consists of one steady shot of Adams, with colorful washes of smoke wafting around, and blends in footage of other members playing their instruments. Check it out, and catch Legs performing at an afternoon show this Sunday, March 24, at the Knockout with Pink Films and Reds, Pinks, and Purples.

  • 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.'"
