Digital Leather 

Wednesday, Oct 14 2009

Seemingly the byproduct of regular acid usage and too many Sparks albums, Digital Leather (aka Shawn Foree) has produced a body of experimental New Wave synth-punk as impressive as it is abnormal. After a clutch of sold-out singles and three full-lengths, the prolific Foree has his first proper studio release, the terrific Warm Brother. Toss Tubeway Army, Jim Carroll, Plastic Bertrand, Syd Barrett, and the Spits in a blender, hit puree, and you have your starting point. A mind-bending treat, this remarkably palpable album also serves notice that Foree is primed for commercial waters as well as veneration as an indie bedroom genius.

  • 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.'"
