Sister Act 

Wednesday, Jul 23 2008

Anyone who only knows the Watson Twins from Jenny Lewis' Rabbit Fur Coat is seriously missing out. The sisters' debut, Fire Songs, is a breathy journey through genres. In the first three songs alone, Chandra and Leigh assay funk, country, and pop with a homespun mellowness. Despite some gothic tinges, the disc is too pretty to be a downer, and the tiptoed cover of the Cure's "Just Like Heaven" transcends novelty to emerge as a heart-melting gem.

  • 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.'"
