Delorean: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Nov 10 2010

Hailing from Barcelona, and naming its latest album Subiza after the Basque town in which it was recorded, Spanish four-piece Delorean has risen to prominence as a sort of Balearic club primer updated for indie kids. Seemingly written for an open-air rave on some Mediterranean isle, the arrangements on Subiza play out as vespers to fading days, with iridescent synths ebbing and flowing against a vista of balmy, persistent rhythm. Anyone can program a radiant arpeggio or a breezy beat, but Delorean has packed the influences of Italo disco, dub, and house alongside rock instrumentation. The result works for both public bliss-out and private make-out sessions.

  • 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.'"
