Fat Freddy's Drop 

Wednesday, Nov 18 2009

New Zealand septet Fat Freddy's Drop occupies the soulful end of the digital spectrum, cranking out electronic dub music with the spirit of a much older sound. The band's sophomore album, Dr Boondigga and the Big BW, reached the top of the album charts and went platinum in one week at home, and has been certified double-platinum since the summertime. The band is heavy on the horniness — as in trombone, sax, and trumpet — which really shines through on "Boondigga," where the instruments valiantly compete for attention with Joe Dukie's honeyed babymaker of a voice.

  • 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.'"
