Cannons and Clouds: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jan 2 2013

Sweet, soothing, bucolic indie-folk. Can we ever get enough of it? Well, yes, we can, but Cannons and Clouds are unlikely to be the outfit that sends you (or us) over the edge. The San Francisco six-piece deals in an especially lovely blend of acoustic guitars, classical harp, and lush harmonies. More importantly, they also manage to write good songs: Note the lulling warmth of "Will a Rainstorm Save Us All From the Wrath of God" and the energetic, wistful love tune "Where Reality Has Me." The group headlines Amnesia this week for the second installment of local label 20 Sided Records' monthlong residency, which continues every Tuesday in January at this favorite Mission club.

  • 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.'"
