Track of the Day: Shout Out Out Out Out

Posted By on Tue, Mar 3, 2009 at 10:59 AM


Sometimes you're drawn to give something a listen based on the name alone. The Canadian act Shout Out Out Out Out already has a moniker that commands attention, but I was more interested in how they interpret that gut-bunching emotion, guilt. The tune "Guilt Trips Sink Ships" doesn't sound sorry in the least, using a clever play on the old adage to lift your angst-riddled conscience into thick, gaseous techno beats 'n' juicy synth blurts. Throw a little high hat in there, some Space Invader laser shots, and vocodered voices warning about the affects of guilt trips, and you have a fun little ditty clearing your conscience for a full eight minutes.

  • 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.'"
