Don't ever Google the words "meth teeth." You'll end up with scarred retinas from the overload of images like this one (at least dude's mustache seems to remain intact). There's nothing yucky about the band Meth Teeth, however. The Northwest lo-fi garage punk act should have a familiar (low-end) ring to fans of Thee Oh Sees, Sic Alps, or the Dodos. There's some melody in there behind all that trashcan banging, but the white noise cuts like arsenic through anything that could possibly be considered pop. If you're not too fried from the weekend by Sunday, the band plays the Hemlock that night. I imagine their smiles can't be beat. -- 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.'"
