MP3 of the Day: Nothing People

Posted By on Mon, Oct 20, 2008 at 11:09 AM

In poking around the lineup for this weekend's Budget Rock festival, I've become smitten with the online offerings of Orland, Ca. band Nothing People. The group's no wave sci fi aesthetic is self-described as the sound of "fuzz, echo and smoke;" other critics liken the group to Debris, and I hear bits of Eno-style art-glam hooks in there as well. Their music is a buncha dirgy, dirty, downward-spiral looking goodies, recommended also for fans of the Intelligence's nervous buzzing (although Nervous People are a tad more polished). So many good songs on their MySpace page, but I'd recommend most "Sickness" and "In the City." If you like what you hear, grab a copy of their limited-edition LP, Anonymous, here, and check them live at Budget Rock on Saturday, Oct. 25. -- 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.'"
