The Mountain Goats 

New album Heretic Pride is more roughly cut than the Mountain Goats’ previous 4AD albums, and song titles like “How to Embrace a Swamp Creature” hark back to the band’s looser home-taping days. John Darnielle is still a tragicomic troubadour of immense charisma, and expanded instrumentation helps drive home his visceral yet literate tales. — Doug Wallen

  • 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.'"
