Solo marimba piece performed by Amie Watson at the University of Toronto, 2008. Composed by American Ellen Lindquist, the "Scorned as Timber, Beloved of the Sky" is named after an Emily Carr painting.

So we still don't know exactly what Neko Case's new tattoos mean, besides "I like Emily Carr and I feel like a tree." But what we're taking away is that you can do anything you want, but it's way better if you think really hard about it for a long time first, and if you are a sword-wielding, literary, animal-loving 40-year-old singer and songwriter when you do it.

  • 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.'"
