Idle Warship: Show Preview 


Developed outside of the auspices of a market-driven major record label, the duo known as Idle Warship — consisting of Brooklyn rapper Talib Kweli and Philadelphia singer Res — sounds like two open-minded friends having a lot of fun making music together. The recently released debut Habits of the Heart finds Kweli and Res smashing together hip-hop, soul, dance, and alternative rock on standout cuts like the electro-tinged "System Addict" and clap-happy "Laser Beams."

  • 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.'"
