Brit-poppers Primal Scream have unleashed a new record, Beautiful Future (out now in the UK; not sure on the US release date). And as if there weren't enough Primal Screamers already, the band --- founded by one of Jesus & Mary Chain's early drummers, Booby Gillespie -- seems intent on stocking its records with plenty of guest stars. It's nothing new for these guys, who roped Kate Moss into singing on Evil Heat, and Beautiful features the vocals of Linda Thompson and CSS' Lovefoxxx, and guitarwork by Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme. You can download one of Primal Scream's newest singles, "Urban Guerrilla" for free here, a bombastic ditty about modern terrorism with plenty of arena rock swagger. Primal Scream's tour stops in  San Francisco March 17 at the Fillmore.

  • 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.'"
