Painted Palms: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jan 30 2013

Anyone who remembers beloved local synth-pop outfit Butterfly Bones better get hip to Painted Palms, and fast. Reese Donohue's new duo — a collaboration with far-flung cousin Christopher Prudhomme — takes the humid, hypnotic textures of Balearic dance and mixes them with a keen pop sensibility that made the group's debut EP, Canopy, pretty much irresistible. So good, in fact, that the initially free EP won praise from Of Montreal's Kevin Barnes and was later released by indie label Secretly Canadian. Painted Palms have a new 7-inch on Polyvinyl Records dropping on March 5, and begin their year with a headlining set at the first anniversary of Wood Shoppe, a free monthly concert series known for its forward-leaning bookings.

  • 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.'"
