Bag Raiders @ The Independent 

Wednesday, Mar 30 2016

If you're a fan of tropical house and electronic dance music and you don't know the Australian duo Bag Raiders, it's OK. We forgive you. Though they're huge in Australia — their singles continually rank on the Australian Recording Industry Association's charts — they're still relatively unknown to non-Aussies. (Although their breakout hit "Shooting Stars" was used in an episode of HBO's How To Make It In America back in 2010.) Formed in 2007 by two classically-trained musicians who met in music school (Chris Stacey and Jack Glass), Bag Raiders has since released a debut album and two EPs. Their lush, pop-y, and upbeat songs are reminiscent of Chromeo circa the mid-2000s and are a perfect fit for those with a penchant for synthesizer-infused jams.

  • 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.'"
