One of the craziest celebrity deaths this year had to be the double whammy of Bernie Mac (who died August 9) and Isaac Hayes (who passed the next day). They'll both be making their final movie appearance in the upcoming flick Soul Men -- which comes out in early Nov. and stars Mac and Samuel L. Jackson (who is not dead). The soundtrack to that film has an impressive lineup, with tracks from Hayes, Anthony Hamilton, John Legend, and Sharon Jones and the DapKings, among others. Here for your listening pleasure today we have Soul Men cover of the 1968 UK hit “Private Number." The song was originally sung by William Bell & Judy Clay) but here it's recorded by Chris Pierce and Leela James backed by The Bo-Keys. Check out the track here. -- 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.'"
