If you don't know, now you know: We are big fans of sublime East Bay electronic bummer pop outfit James & Evander. We also tend to like other musical projects that J&E's Glenn Jackson and Adam Myatt get involved in -- like the brand-new group Pale Blue Dot, a trio that specializes in what the members call "Carl Sagan disco." Think of space disco, but with a heavy dose of retro-futurism and a distinctly optimistic tint to the songs' slowly unfolding electronic layers. Pale Blue Dot's debut EP, available on Bandcamp (as well as limited edition cassette, natch), will appeal to fans of easygoing ambient electronic music in the vein of Tycho, as well as anyone coming down from a Todd Terje high:

Pale Blue Dot is pretty new, but the group has a show at Noise Pop opening for El Ten Eleven on Friday, Feb. 28, at the New Parish in Oakland. We expect good things from these three.

  • 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.'"
