Bon Iver 

Wednesday, Sep 23 2009

Now that his cabin-recorded debut has penetrated all corners of the globe, Justin Vernon is taking his onetime solo project Bon Iver on the road with his former DeYarmond Edison bandmates, who now comprise Megafaun. Earlier this year, he applied his craggy falsetto and fractured strum to plinking piano and vocoder on the lovely Blood Bank EP. This month, his collaboration with the Milwaukee band Collections of Colonies of Bees will see release under the name Volcano Choir. It might be a detour on the road to the next Bon Iver album, but detours are what Vernon does best.

  • 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.'"
