Sonoma natives Brodie Jenkins and David Luning are both formidable singer-songwriters in their own right: She's currently one half of the S.F. electro-pop duo CATHEDRALS; he fronts his own Americana act, the David Luning Band. But in harmony, the indie-folk duo's voices -- his full of old-soul gravel, hers silvery and bright -- go somewhere else entirely. Their debut EP, out Nov. 14, is mood music for a rainy drive up the coast or, um, any other dreamy situation in which you might normally listen to Iron and Wine but maybe want more of a kick in the pants.

    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.'"
