Terry Malts: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Sep 4 2013

"I don't care if it's going to fall apart tomorrow; I don't remember yesterday; this is what we're doing now." So begins Terry Malts' "No Tomorrow," a song that ably encapsulates the sound and spirit of the band itself: Ramones-esque pop-punk with distant, deadpan vocals and no fucks given about anything or anyone that isn't right here, right now. Terry Malts hasn't aged or matured much on its second Slumberland LP, Nobody Realizes This Is Nowhere: Only in a couple places, like the woozy melancholy of "Comfortably Dumb," does it give a hint at any depth behind those blaring guitars. But for fans of relentless, uptempo scuzz-pop, Terry Malts is a good way to forget the past and ignore the future.

    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.'"
