Track of the Day: Stag Hare

In the same enchanted forest of reverb and rainbow synths that houses bands like Animal Collective and Deerhunter, Utah's Stag Hare is making a nest out of chimes, shaker percussion, and lots of fuck-with-your-head electronic echoes. The songs come on slow, like a high that's subtle as it drops from your brain down through your feet--but then all of a sudden you're really stoned. Stag treats your grey matter delicately, though, his mostly instrumental tracks meditative with rhythms that run in deep circles. Check out "Holy Quinn" while staring into the stars, surf, and trees pictured all over his Web site. If the song makes your ears tingle in a good way, Stag Hare will bring his peaceful soundtracks to Project One tonight.

  • 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.'"
