Big news from the Dodos camp this morning. The local indie pop act finished up work on its third full-length, Time To Die, which will come out September 15, while also expanding its membership by one. Time to Die was recorded in Seattle with famed producer Phil Ek, the man behind many of the big Northwest indie acts of the last decade, from Built to Spill to the Shins and Fleet Foxes. And while Ek helped steer the new Dodos disc, another musician, 21-year-old Keaton Snyder, augmented the drum 'n' guitar lineup with a little vibraphone. With all the Pitchfork love  the band gets, it'll be interesting to see if third time's the charm when it comes to really breaking these deserving musicians nationally.

  • 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.'"
