Longtime Bay Area musical presence Bart Davenport is known for his tunefulness and his crooning, among other things, and both are on display in "Wearing the Changes," a new wistful, bittersweet pop single about aging gracefully and staying cool. The whole thing has a vaguely Anglophone tint to it, from Davenport's almost-accent and image-rich lyrics to the Belle & Sebastian/Orange Juice glint to the clean electric guitars. It's an encouraging introduction to the new work on Davenport's upcoming album Physical World, out on the esteemed Burger Records March 4 -- encouraging enough that we might just forgive him for having recently moved to L.A. Check out "Wearing the Changes" 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.'"
