Corinne: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Feb 9 2011

Despite its name, "freestyle" holds to a certain pattern. Borne on a generous application of syncopated drum machine jitters and tweaked electro bass and topped with flitting synth melodies, the genre is inescapably associated with New York and Miami in the early '80s. And yet a pitch-perfect manifestation of the irrepressibly flirty sound feels right at home in the here and now, embodied by NorCal's own Corinne. Backed by tracks from producer Josh Anzano, she sings about buoyant dreams and parties that spill from the clubs into the streets, feeding the heat alongside burbling stabs and cascades of chiming keyboard. This week, Corinne opens for Oslo's Lindstrøm, which layers oscillating cadences, auroral chords, and iridescent pulsations into zero-gravity disco.

  • 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.'"
