Legs: Show Preview

There is an Oakland band called Legs, and they have songs with titles like "Friday Afternoon at the Zoo," "Go Ask Your Mother," and "The King's Collection of Slides & Super 8." So if you're thinking Legs are quirky indie-pop, you're right — their debut album on Loglady Records is even called Pass the Ringo, and will be out April 23. But, oh how charming quirky indie-pop can be, especially when the production values are cheap, the melodies are buoyant, and there's a female vocalist sometimes. "Two Colours" is a joy of a first single that features singer Amelia Adams, and showcases how Legs' basic, throwback pop can transcend its occasional predictability. It is, after all, a cute song about laundry.

  • 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.'"
