Nice Folks

Who pushed the Everly Brothers in the dirt? If that famous 1960s ecstatic-tenor folk duo were to morph into something a little more bitter and crouchy, it could be the Moore Brothers, especially on "Girl with a Light," from their super-stripped-down album Murdered by the Moore Brothers on Plain Recordings. You can tell when a guitar is played by someone who is also singing, as it is here, passed back and forth between the two guys and often their only accompaniment. Word has it the pair has just moved to Nevada City from the Bay Area, maybe because Joanna Newsom shouted out their live show on Pitchfork. What's that you're wondering? Are they handsome? Why, yes: They look like someone pushed John Cusack in the dirt.

  • 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.'"
