MP3 of the Day; Crystal Stilts

Not to be confused with the other "Crystals" of the music world (Crystal Castles, Crystal Method), Brooklyn's Crystal Stilts play hazy, druggy, AM-radio shoegazer pop that creeps into your consciousness like evening fog. I'll admit, at first listen I found their fey, delay-heavy sound a little too quiet. But inside that hush is some truly sexy music, the types of tunes that haunt you for days. Now I've come around and it's hard for me to pick a favorite track, but "Converging in the Quiet" (available at the band's MySpace page) seems like a good tune to soundtrack the heavy white mist blanketing the city this morning. (Catch Crystal Stilts next Tuesday, Nov. 4 at Bottom of the Hill.) -- 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.'"
