The Dirtbombs

It's getting rare to see a music career like the one the Dirtbombs have amassed. For 15-plus years, they've played a spirits-soaked strain of rock 'n' roll that would doom most bands in less than five. And in the face…

Blood on the Wall

From the seething yet soulful din of this Big Apple bent-blues band's third record, it sounds like its members have spent the past three years on tour arguing over highway directions whilst munching on Funyuns and letting out hangover burps.…

Proof of Youth is the best record of the year. First there's the grabby opener, "Grip Like a Vice," that takes this Brit band's J.J. Fad fixation and explodes it with massive multi­tracked drum bashing, a '74 cop-show credit roll,…

The Bravery Far from Bold

With FutureSex/LoveSounds, Justin Timberlake gained an unlikely spot as the present king of R&B, a position that he seems likely to hold for some time. The former Mickey Mouser's cultural timeliness and canniness in collaboration make him an undeniable pop…

Music, Reviewed Brunettes


On Brunettes' third proper album in nine years (albeit their first U.S. release), this libidinous New Zealand duo continues to shake its garage-pop roots while retaining a sense of sauced sarcasm. Hence the playful intro, "Brunettes Against Bubblegum Youth," that…

The Eat

One would think all the humidity, sweat, and hick violence of non-tourist-approved Florida would've produced a number of classic-era punk bands, but nay. There were a few obscure ones, however, and the Eat was probably the best — as evidenced…

It seems nearly impossible to think the U.K. could cough up yet another skinny, shaggy pop group after all the Kooks, Cribs, Kaiser Chiefs, etc. But if the thought of one more British bunch doesn't dislodge your lunch, please hold…

Some might remember San Francisco's Joel Gion as the massively sideburned goof-off in the Brian Jonestown Massacre documentary, Dig! Having been perhaps the silliest yet still pretentious member of a band full of all that and more, the arrival of…

  • 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.'"
