I don't know if anybody remembered, but Britney Spears' new album comes out this week. You didn't? That's because her fucking craziness has trumped her music career. Peep this Wall Street Journal report that chronicles how the mighty have fallen:

Ms. Spears seemed positioned to become her generation's Madonna: a tireless professional with an ear for timely pop hooks and a flair for reinvention. Instead, the wheels came off, and she started careening down a slide that had more in common with Michael Jackson's carnival-ride lifestyle than Madonna's focused careerism.

  • 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.'"
