Track of the Day: Tartufi

If we took a mid-year count of favorite records in 2009, Bay Area artists would be amongst the highest ranking. So many excellent albums coming from our home turf--among them Tartufi's Nests of Waves and Wire. On this melodic batch of post rock, everything seems to move in emotive cascades, from the vocals of Lynne Angel (which are very reminiscent of Throwing Muses) to the loops of guitars and keyboards to the roiling percussion. Check out the tune "Dot Dash" on the duo's MySpace page, a song that moves from tolling bells and tribal percussion to Slint-y guitar lines that snake along moodily. Not sure what the song's about, exactly, but it still makes us feel real happy to listen to it.

  • 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.'"
