Junior Boys: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Sep 21 2011

Abstract pop music experienced a renaissance in the mid-'00s. Matmos and the Fiery Furnaces both released career-defining albums, while LCD Soundsystem etched out a spot in the cultural consciousness with increasingly grandiose works. And let us not forget about Junior Boys; this Ontario duo has released four albums of tremendously chic synthesized pop over the last decade. Like fellow Canadians Chromeo, the group interweaves tight, high-octane rhythms and whizzing keyboard effects to create a sound as radiant as a disco ball. The Junior Boys' 2011 LP It's All True is a gorgeous blend of blue-eyed soul and percussive instrumentation.

  • 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.'"
