Mother Jones has compiled a list of songs used by American military prisons and on bases "to induce sleep deprivation, "prolong capture shock", disorient detainees during interrorgations – and also to drown out screams." The list has several predictable entries- the Meow Mix jingle, the Barney song, Fuck Your God by Deicide—along with offerings from Neil Diamond,Christina Aguilara and Prince. There may be a secret military base in the apartment over mine. -Andy Wright

  • 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.'"
