MP3 of the Day: The Soft Focus

Posted By on Tue, Jan 13, 2009 at 12:18 PM


For all y'all interested in all things Black Lips (a group that includes your truly), there's news that gold-toothed guitarist Ian St.Pe has a side project in the works. The band is called the Soft Focus, and they only have two songs up for the streaming right now: "Work in progress 1" and, um, "Work in progress 2." Sure these slow surfy/garagey instrumentals sound very much like demos, but the whole idea behind a blog is to jump on shit first, right? Or whatever. Check out Soft Focus tracks here and if you like what you hear you can always make online friends with the quartet and stay up to date on whatever new stuff they get up on the Web.

  • 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.'"
