Hear This: Matmos and Kevin Blechdom

It's hardly the first time Matmos and Kevin Blechdom have performed together in the Bay Area, but ever since the former headed out east some years back, it makes any return visit all that much more of a treat. Both Matmos members are coming off great solo projects — Drew Daniel's Soft Pink Truth release last year, reinterpreting black metal roots through a queer electronic lens, and M.C. Schmidt's debut effort earlier this year, with prepared piano as a means for exploring gamelan. Blechdom, meanwhile, only has to come up from Santa Cruz for this jaunt, where she's holding things down in the Digital Arts and New Media program, and little doubt her own creative revamps and sonic explorations rooted in her own Blectum from Blechdom days will be on display in turn. Whatever results in this set, part of the larger Megapolis Festival, will likely be as knottily and entrancing creative and unique as one could ask for.

  • 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.'"
