Wednesday, Feb 4 2009
Terence Davies' new, offbeat film is a semi-abstract edit of found footage on a subject both personal and (we use this word with care) universal: Liverpool, home.

Home is a time, not a place, and Davies outlines his with gorgeous grainy old black-and-white, sentimental but clear-eyed narration, and a soundtrack free of you know who.

  • 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.'"
