Prefuse 73: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Aug 21 2013

Sprawling discographies often go hand-in-hand with successful electronic musicians, and Prefuse 73 is as fine an illustration of that as any. That's the most famous alias of Guillermo Scott Herren, but the N.Y.C. producer also goes by Delarosa & Asora, Piano Overlord, and Ahmad Szabo, among other names. In 2011, Herren issued his seventh studio album as Prefuse 73 with The Only She Chapters, a collection of glitchy, otherworldly textures and floating vocal fragments from guests like Broadcast's late Trish Keenan. More recently, Herren announced Yellow Year Records, a new label whose ambitious first project is a 12-volume series of collaborations between Prefuse 73 and fellow experimental sorts like Nosaj Thing and Synkro. The series kicks off with Herren and the L.A.-based Teebs teaming up as Sons of the Morning. In keeping with that "more is more" ethos, this week's Folsom date features not just a Sons set but solo appearances from Prefuse 73 and Teebs, too.

  • 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.'"
