From Gutter With Love

Wednesday, Aug 4 2004
The members of Pidgeon jump right into From Gutter With Love, opening with a flurry of sinister guitars and rumbling rhythms. But wait, what was that? For a second, and just a second, you think you hear some sugary pop goodness, in between the death-metal vocal interludes. There it is again. What exactly is going on here? The only answer, friend, is that this Bay Area quintet is more meticulous and sneaky than most bands. There's no difference for these musicians between heavy metal, alternapop, and spacious indie rock. They throw all the styles into a blender and end up with a very curious beast on From Gutter With Love. And whatever doctor helped tidy up the stitches when that creature first emerged must make serious bucks -- this band's changes are utterly seamless.

    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.'"
