The Dodos by Jeremy Harris

It's kind of exciting watching the Dodos hit their stride this year. After gigging incessantly for as long as I can remember, the band has released a record, Visiter, that's earned Meric Long and Logan Kroeber rave reviews. A small sampling from recent weeks: Spin made the Dodos their artist of the day ; Rolling Stone gave the band positive marks in print, and Pitchfork elevated the group to "best new music status," saying in its review that "Visiter ends up being one of the most welcoming (and welcome) records of 2008 so far." With the Frenchkiss label at their side, it seems that 2008 is shaping up to be the year of the Dodos. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.'"
